Can you go backwards compatible without Internet???

I do not have internet and I'm running an older version of the 360 dash. I was wandering if original xbox games required an internet connection to update.

I'm wanting to play Thief Deadly Shadows but not sure if it will work on my xbox without an update.

Thank you,

Hey mate, you do need an update to be able to play original xbox games on the 360, however you can download the update from the websites and put it on the USB or disc and install it to the console that way:


Also Thief is on the compatibility list so it should play fine after you do the above.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
