Xbox Original Games with HD VGA (GTA San Andreas via Marketplace)

I have a 250GB Xbox 360 S and it is connected to a monitor using the official VGA cable.

I want to play some of the xbox original games, but I am wondering if it will work with is configuration. Games won't work on the disc if I put them in, but what about if I purchase the game and download it through the marketplace?

So yeah:

GTA San Andreas downloaded from marketplace

Run on an LCD screen through the VGA kit.

Can someone provide a definitative answer whether this will work or not? I tried emailing the support team but they gave me a slightly ambiguous answer.

Regards.

Oh, and I am British, so I believe that I will be stuck in 50 Hz mode for this.

Happy to help a fellow Brit!

It realy depends on the game.  Quite a few PAL games are not designed to run at 60Hz, they will only run a 50Hz.  Since the HD-VGA cable can not handle 50Hz signals, some games will not run.  For the record, GTA San Andreas works fine in VGA, at least it did the last time I tried it.  Halo CE does not work in VGA, but Halo 2 does.

Hope that helps.

That's great to hear... Is that for the disc as well as the marketplace? Finding a second hand copy is a lot cheaper than buying the game online.

The disc and marketplace versions are both the same on all games.
