Xbox 360 Arcade Version compatable with older games?

My son is getting a message trying to play his older Xbox games that says an Xbox 360 hard drive must be attached to play origional Xbox games.
Does this mean the Arcade version did not come with a hard drive as the sales person told me it did?

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.

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.

My xbox 360 arcade system will not allow me to play origonal xbox games even with an xbox 360 hard drive attached


Okay, the Xbox 360 isn't reverse compatable, meaning you can't play regular xbox 360 games on it. The only version that is reverse compatable is the Xbox 360 Elite. SOrry :(

Xbox 360 arcade pal game read error


You will get this error when your laser is in need of replacing. The other message you will get is open tray. If your system will play regular movie dvd's but not games then replace the laser. You can find them pretty cheap on ebay.

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

RROD in 360 arcade version


Hi there,

All the latest xbox are upgraded from the old ones, i have an arcade i brought last year and had no problems what so ever.

Even better they now come with 3 years!! garentee so you will be safe :)

Great choice, xbox's are fantastic, tho i would adise you to go for the premium xbox as you get a hard drive with it, and you will be needing a hard drive to go online.

hope this helps

Xbos 360 core arcade


This one is cheaper because it comes without a hard drive. It is just the same as the ones with a hard drive but without a hard drive. Yes you can play all the games but it is recomended that you get a hard drive one. You can save games music and game upgrades on it.

The Arcade model comes with no harddrive, no hdmi (for digital connection to an HDTV), and I beleive the controller is wired instead of wireless. If you are planning on just playing games then the arcade may be a good choice for you as it's cheaper but you may find yourself wanting a hard drive sooner than later. Without a hard drive you will not be able to purchase or rent movies and you will not be able to download game demos and Xbox Live Arcade games. To compensate Microsoft includes a disc with some of the greatest hits of XBox Live Arcade with the Arcade version. The Pro comes with a 20GB hard drive but still no HDMI. The Elite version has a 120GB hard drive and HDMI. For most people the Pro is the one to get. If you were to get the Arcade then purchase a hard drive later you will pay more than the price of the pro.
