Re: How do you convert xbox games so they can olay onthe...

You can only get a certain amount of games to play on your 360 from the old xbox(trust me this aggravates me too)If you have Xbox live it automatically downloads a patch so that most games can be played on 360. For list of games it can play on 360 go here

Hope this helps..

How can i download xbox games for windows 8

The first thing you need to know is that Windows 8 and XBOX 360 console have a different set of games.

So a game that exists on XBOX 360 might not exist in Windows 8 and vice versa.

In order to download xbox games for Windows 8, all you have to do is to go to the windows store by typing store and pressing enter while at the windows 8 home screen (you should see the live tiles), or by clicking on the green tile that says store.

There are also some XBOX console applications you can download such as xbox 360 smartglass which converts your laptop/tablet to an XBOX controller.

I cannot play most of the games due to region code....I have an Xbox 360 pal as well as Xbox 360 ntsc console....the latter has burnt up but its DVD ROM is alright....if i change the DVD ROM of pal to ntsc...

Interesting question.

Yes you can do that but you don't need to replace the DVD Rom.
You need 2 tools: PAL-to-NTSC converter box and a voltage converter. Don't know where to buy these though. Sorry.

If you manage to get those tools then you need to refer to a guide. Here's a detailed one from e How:

Hope you get it working.

I have an xbox 360 from the US and am now living in Ireland. Is there a plug that I can order to get power here and are the games purchased in Ireland compatable with the US console?

Games bought in Ireland are not compatible with your US console. So rather than buying a converter plug, you're better off buying a new Xbox 360 console. (Of course if you have brought games with you from the US these will ONLY work on your US console, meaning you need a plug. You should be able to find a converter in an electronics store.)
But do not forget that certain games are region free (meaning any console can play it, regardless of where the console was bought.
Just to warn you so you don't buy the same game for both your consoles, when you may not need to.
You can find a list of compatible games vs consoles here:
Region Free Xbox 360 Games

NTSC-U/C - US + Canada


PAL - Europe

NTSC/J - Japan

Hope this helps. =]

I want to play oddworld on my 360 it is an xbox

This is not the case. Microsoft has not converted all games over from the original xbox, to have the ability to play them on the 360. On the Xbox website there is a list of compatible games that can be use on the 360. Here is the link. I hope this helps.
