It is really ridiculous that there is no up front way to see that you cannot play original games on this system. The customer service people were of no help. I really do not believe that they would sell a game to a console that cannot play it. I have to pay $27 to get an "official" xbox hard drive to play a $10 game. I wish there was a way to give Customer Service Curtis negative rep. He basically repeatedly told me that there is nothing that he can do, not even offering me some sort of retribution. My ten year old brother wasted his hard earned money to buy something that does not work from a billion dollar corporation that screws over their customers for 10 bones. Thanks for all the help.
