xbox 360 & xbox games


Standard Member
Hello all.

Just got a xbox 360...lovely, but tried to see if it played Ninja Gaiden and Half Life 2 xbox games, and they did not work!! It worked with Halo and Halo 2.

I read somewhere that these games would be backward compatible with the new 360.

Can someone please let me know if I have a dodgy xbox 360 or if these games are not meant to be compatible.

Please advise.

You need to connect to Live and download the updated Backwards Compatibility software.

I tried that myself on Friday so I could update my brother's 360 but when he put in the disc it came up saying it was not compatible or something :confused:

How odd. Only tried it via disk once myself (many moons ago before I went Live) and it worked fine.

Ninja Gaiden definitely works as I own it and when connected to Live it downloaded the update for the bc :)
