Buying Xbox 360 Games without owning the console

I own a Xbox One but never owned a 360.

With the upcoming backwards compatibilty I would like to "save" the monthly 360 Games with Gold games.

But when I try to buy Thief I get an error-message stating: "Is this your first purchase?" and so on...

What is this problem? Am I not able to buy 360 Games without linking my profile to a 360 console?

Ah ok. Never heard of that message before.

Maybe it's because as you've never signed in on a 360 then they may be doing it to prevent you ordering a game for the wrong console. There is also the fact it wont know what console to send the download to because it usually adds them to the 360 download queue.

Once backwards compatibility is officially released they will probably change this.

Keep in mind the publisher still has to write the patch so no garentee any games for gold will work with the xbox one

Patch?

Going by what was said on E3 the publishers only have to authorise the game going to BC. MS do all the work
