Does the 360 e console still have backwards compatibility?

Hey all, In researching the 360 in the past, I found you could play a good amount of the original xbox games on most 360 consoles after downloading an update or patch of some sort. (forgive me, I'm still 2 gens behind on lingo!) if I recall correctly, it was definitely true for the 360 s console. I haven't been able to find any answers online about if the 360 e--the latest model--also has the ability to be backwards compatible for some games? Has this feature been taken away in this updated console or is it still available? Thanks for any help!

TensileDeer14 hey there :)


Yes the Xbox 360 E is just as compatible as the Xbox 360 S in relation to Xbox Original titles. You will need a hard drive in order to play them though. The full list of compatible games can be found by clicking HERE.


I hope this helps.

Many thanks,
