    Arrow Play your Xbox games on your Xbox 360

    The brainy noodles at Microsoft have released a number of patches and updates in the past which allows you to use your older Xbox games with your new Xbox 360. Whilst these updates are FREEly available on the web, you'll notice that quite a few folks are trying to sell them to you on eBay. I don't think that is very fair, so here's how you can get the whole lot for next to nothing.


    All the information you'll need to download and use the updates can be found via this link.

    You can obtain the update by one of three methods:
    1. Download it yourself, burn it to DVD and apply it. The download - if that is the route you choose - is around 13 meg, so broadband connections are the order of the day.
    2. Pay to have an official update DVD sent to you - but only once they actually start this long promised service.
    3. Connect your Xbox 360 to the phone line and use Xbox Live.
    Option 3 may be the most likely, since the majority of people will already have their system connected and be playing online. If this is the case, then you probably already have the update automatically installed.


    If you are wondering why you'd bother with all this, then take a look at the growing list of original Xbox games that you can now use with your newer console.

    So there you go.

    Yes, it really annoys me when people try to take advantage by selling something that is free.

    If you can sell something that's free is that not good business.

    If it is something that you can add value to, improve or offer once it is no longer available, then it's all good. Otherwise it's a sure way to create bad feeling when those who have paid for it find out they could have got it for nothing.

    It should be noted that no matter what patch you upgrade with or how you do it your 360 won't run any original xbox games unless you have an offical 360 harddrive attached to your system.

    Even the new slim 4GB ones wont play them as the 4GB is flash memory and not a physical harddrive.

    Bear in mind hat you are replying to a thread that began in 2007. These flash memory drives didn't exist back then.

    Yes. However, the point is that as flash memory drives didn't exist back then people had to have a hard drive, so I don't see what it is you are trying to get at.

    Are you trying to say that the instructions given in the first post are somehow incorrect?
