Erm, the clue is in the name guys. ORIGINAL XBOX plays ORIGINAL XBOX games. The XBOX 360 plays games designed for the XBOX 360 plus an array of ORIGINAL games. The original console will NOT play 360 games.

It is quite simple in fact. The original Xbox can only play Xbox games. The Xbox 360 however is backwards compatible for the most part and can play a rather large chunk of games that are offered on the original Xbox.

With the given times, an upgrade to an Xbox 360 would be a good idea if you are truly interested in gaming.
Here is a link to a list of games that the Xbox 360 will play from the original Xbox. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360#List_of_compatible_titles

Xbox360 wont play origanal xbox games


Some XBox games have both a 360 and original XBox version, so you can't play them on the 360. Other games simply aren't compatible. Your game may fall into one of those two groups.

How to play xbox games on a new xbox360 slim 4gb


I am assuming you are referring to playing original Xbox games on your new 360. Halo was the only game from the box that you can play directly without needing to download the patch to play but supposed newer systems have the capability to play more directly out of the box.

Other backwards compatable games can be played but you will need a samll patch for each game. The game if playable will automatically attepmt to download the patch from xbox live. So you will need to have your Xbox 360 conected to live or have a patch disk. (which is available via the Xbox Magazine disk or can be downloaded online and burned to a disk)

Here is a link for Xbox games that are playable on the 360: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360

"You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console, if you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive and the latest console software.

Information about how to update your console software is available on our Xbox support website:

Cant play original xbox games on xbox360 console


Not all Xbox games are compatible with the new Xbox 360 system. Most of the time if you buy your games from Game Stop or other game stores the bar code sticker will have a (BC) in it which means the game is backwards compatible with the new Xbox 360 console. If the bar code sticker does not have the (BC) it will not play in the 360 console.

Why cant i play any xbox games on my xbox 360


There could be a few reasons:

1: The game is not able to be played on the xbox 360. Only certain games can be played on the xbox 360. Go to http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/askxbox.aspx and type in "original xbox games". It should pop up with a list of games that can be played on the xbox 360.

2: Your family settings do not allow you to play original xbox games. Go to the control panel and look at the settings.
