Why wont the game load?


some games run differently on different xbox's. Heres an example, I bought a xbox slim 3 years ago, my sister bought one this year. When Call of Duty: Ghosts came out I bought two copies. Both worked perfectly on my xbox but would run maybe 2 to 5 minutes on her Xbox. Dont waste your time calling microsoft. I think its $79 for a slim and like $119 for an elite. When i called they were going to charge me $99 for a slim because it was for their time. otherwise wait til a store has a deal like walmart had 360's at black friday for $100.

My son wants a ps3, but i understand you cant play ps2 games on it. is this true?


Newer model PS3 systems are not backwards compatible. but if you can find the very old original model used then it will be backwards compatible with some of the PS2 games but not all. Older models are hard to come by though.

Best bet is to just keep your old PS2 along with any new system you might buy.

Xbox 360 is compatible with a large selection of its older Xbox games but recommend you get a new slim model Xbox 360 if you go that route.

Bought a 250gb hard drive to put into new x box slim console to play an original x box game....still will not play or recognize the game (SNK vs CAPCOM) what am I missing??? Do I need a disk to download???


Hi there, not all original Xbox games can be played on the Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim, I came across the same problem myself. I have checked the compatible games lists and cannot find the game you mention on any of them so I am presuming that this game unfortunately will not play on the Xbox 360.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news

Yes, this is a major problem with the new xbox 360. If you bought the 250 gig package, you shouldn't have to worry about this, but it sounds like you bought the 4 gig package. You don't have a hard drive. You only have an IMU(internal memory unit). You can buy an xbox 360 slim hard drive online. Install it into the hard drive slot, located on the side of the console. You're not the only one with this problem, lots of games require hard drives. For example, in halo reach, you cannot play co-op campaign or firefight without a hard drive.

If you just bought it brand new, then return it for an exchange. Its not wise to keep an electronics appliance or game console that is having issues straight out of the box. Using your A\V (RCA) cables instead of an HDMI cable shouldn't be causing any lag, at least nothing that is significant enough to notice.

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360


Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade
