Xbox 360 cant play newer xbox 360 games only older xbox 360 games

My xbox 360 can only play older xbox 360 games like tony hawk american wasteland and oblivion. When I put in games like halo 3, army of two, and assasins creed it goes to xbox 360 logo but then freezes up. I was told if i have updated it yet. How do I update my xbox 360 to play newer games? What do i need? I need a detail explanation.

When the new games came out, the console updates itself when you go to play the game. Look on the back of your console at the numbers. (not serial or part) You should see 2006 or 2007. It is most likely that you have an 2006 which means that your graphics card isnt strong enough to handle the graphics from these games. If you call up microsoft and tell them that the console had the 3 red rings (even though it doesnt) They will take your console, repair it, and update it all for free.

I can't get my Tony hawk shred controller to connect

Use older batteries. Do not use the batteries that came with the board. After you switch the batteries re-calibrate and it should work fine.

You go up to a board shop at the window in the front press the "X" button or something like that or if you get close it will tell you what to press and it will also lead you to a list of sponsores and you have a time limit to do certain things
