XBOX ONE/ XBOX 360 GAME PURCHASING.

Hello everybody I have a question I have been trying to figure out. With the whole Xbox One coming out and it along with the 360 having titles that are coming out for both consoles. Will there be away to buy a game for let's say the Xbox One and it come with a code for you to download it to the Xbox 360??? I don't really want to spend $120 for the same game but for two different Xbox consoles. Any information will help me. Thank you

Xbox One games won't work on the 360 and vice versa but in the future you'll be able to stream Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One, a bit like Gaikai.

Hi deblerge90,

I highly recommend when you Pre-Order ask game DLC that will be included. This may varies depending store whenre made Pre-Order.

I knew the 360 games wouldn't play on the one but wasn't sure if let's say for example I bought watch dogs for the 360 and if there was a promotional code or something for me to also download it to the Xbox one for me to be able to play it on there as well.

A lot of retailers are offering a trade-up service for a minimal price.  Buy the Xbox 360 version, then trade it in and get the Xbox One version when it releases for something around $10.

Hi deblerge90,

 

It's not quite the same as what you're suggesting, but a few retailers have deals for trading up to the next gen version of games.

All the offers seem pretty similar, the basic theme being that you buy the Xbox 360 version, then later trade that in and pay an extra $10 to get the Xbox One version.

 

Microsoft, Best Buy, GameStop and Amazon are all doing it.

Aaaaaa OK..well that is a good idea. But hopefully Xbox would think of something like what I'm thinking of. From what I've heard I believe Sony is doing that, but I love my Xbox to much to go to the dark side. Lol

Most games companies are offering an exchange program. For example "Game" allow you to buy any game that will be released on current and next gen consoles (Xbox 360 or ps3) now, and they will give you £40.00 back for them when you exchange against the next gen equivalent (Xbox one or PS4).
