How to Play Xbox 360 and Original Xbox Games

First of all, you need to find out if the games you own are backward compatible. For that, you need to check your game library. Go to:

  • My games & apps
  • See all
  • Full library
  • All owned games

After that, filter on “All console types” and select “Xbox 360 & Xbox games” or “Xbox One games”.

When you got the compatible games, these are the next steps.

On Xbox console: Insert your game disc into your console. If a digital game you bought is compatible, you will be able to see it in your games list. For that, go to:

  • My games & apps
  • See all
  • Full library
  • All owned games
  • Ready to install

In the Cloud: Your available game options will be visible with the indications of “Xbox” or “Xbox 360”. You can access these games the same as other cloud titles. The exception is that you’ll need to press the “Menu” and “View” buttons simultaneously to access the Xbox 360 guide. You will also see specific features such as achievements or friend requests.

Is it Possible to Play on Xbox Series X/S?

If the Xbox 360 and Original Xbox game you’re looking for is compatible with Xbox One, that’s great news. Because this game is also playable on Xbox Series X/S too.

However, there are a couple of things to consider.

  • You can only play digital games on Xbox Series S.
  • There are some excluded titles. The reason is that they require the Kinect sensor.
