Well it maybe that you do not have enough memory to add the update or with some games you need the internet to get the update so try plugging the internet in and setting up an account and try the game again, hope this helps.

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:

"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: "

Does x box 360 need upgradation to play the new games launching every year

Yes it does -- however, any new game that requires that your XBox 360 be updated to play will include the update on the game disc. You don't need to download updates yourself -- the games that need the update will have it on them.

New game wont play update required what does this mean

You need to connect to Xbox Live to update the game. It might have a patch to make it backward compatible if it's an Xbox game that you're trying to play on the 360.

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

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.
