    Can I buy a physical game and install on my normal Xbox one and the download the game on my...


    Okay, so I have two Xbox One consoles. One is the standard with a physical drive and the other a digital edition.

    There are a number of older games that I can purchase as a physical copy for a few £ but will cost upwards of £8-9 for a digital download so I wondered if I owned and installed the game on one Xbox if I would be able to download the game on the digital edition?

    :)

    Can I buy a physical game and install on my normal Xbox one and the download the game on my digital console??

    No. Owning the disc version doesn't give a digital license.

    Buy Games on Smarglass / no Preload on Xbox One.

    But why can i buy the games on smartglass with my Gamertag on Switzerland?

    The real Problem is no Preload in Switzerland, then Sunset Overdrive and CoD Advanced Warfare will be avaiable at Launch in Switzerland.

    But why let Microsoft people in Switzerland dont preload the Games?

    I can set my Xbox One on Austria and Download the Games with my Switzerland Gamertag, but this should not be normal. Normal should be Preload my Games on Xbox One with setting Switzerland.

    I cannot purchase backwards compatible games.

    Hello, and on games of this generation, you can buy them normally?
    Yes. I can buy Xbox One games normally, and I haven’t had issues downloading 360 games from Games With Gold either.

    Prices on the Store Suck!

    Digital is excellent for my options but they should be cheaper than physical. With two XboxOnes in my household and Home Gold...and Family feature, I only need to buy one digital copy of the game. Download on both Xbox's and my kids can play the same game
    I'm playing at the same time on both consoles...Offline or online..... so in essence i'm getting two games for the price of one. Can't do this with physical copies of the game.

    Lemme get your opinion on something guys...

    Unless it's on sale on the marketplace I buy physical. My internet is too slow for me at wait for a full game download. With physical I can download it while offline and start playing a lot faster.
