XB1 owner wanting to download 360 GWG

i want to take advantage of this months 360 GWG Gears of War 3 so I have it ready should it become one of the backward compatibility games later.

I never bought a 360, and in fact the XB1 is my first Xbox console, and none of my friends have a 360 either, but I do have a full Gold Membership.

i was hoping I would be able to purchase the game and then download it to my XB1 if it does become BC.

When I try to buy the game a pop up appears tlelling me that I have to log in to my 360 and do it from there so it can check if it's compatible.

Has anybody else come across this before? If you have did you manage to find a workaround? Or is it just not possible for XB1 owners to get the 360 GWG?

Thanks for any help that can be given.

Hi there,

As far as I know, your profile needs to have been signed in to an Xbox 360 console, because when you buy or press download on a game from the Xbox Marketplace website, it automatically downloads when you turn on your 360 console. If you've never had a 360 console, it won't be able to do that.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
