    Can you install Xbox 360 games that are delisted after your Xbox 360 was reset?


    So basically, I used to have Castleminer Z on my Xbox. Thing is, one time someone factory reset my Xbox, as a "little prank". I've really been interested in Castleminer Z lately, but I don't know how to get it back! I heard you can redownload delisted
    games, but can you do it on a factory reset Xbox?

    :)

    Can you install Xbox 360 games that are delisted after your Xbox 360 was reset?

    Hi,

    On your Xbox 360:

    1. Sign in to Xbox Live using the gamertag that you used when you originally purchased the content.
    2. Go to settings and select Account.
    3. Select Download History.
    4. Browse your download history. If you want to download something again, select the item, and then select
      Download Again.

    If my digital game is installed in my library but I play the physical copy of the digital game normally, it wouldn't affect me from getting my games uninstalled itself from the XBOX like few others?

    ... since most games from the XBOX Stores were gone, if I had installed a digital game a long ago before it was delisted off the stores, but then later I bought the physical copy of the same games ...
    What do you mean by "most games"? Compared to what is still available, only a few games are being delisted, usually because of licensing rights running out (like for example licensed music, or licenses to use "real world" cars)

    But even IF a game was delisted, if you already bought it digitally, you own it, and you can still download it. So there is no need to get it physically.

    For example: I got Forza Horizon 1 during it's Games with Gold offer. And I'm still able to download and play it. And if my wife inserts my physical copy of the game in her Xbox One, it'll also download and install it on the console. So there is really no
    difference and no need to get physical copies.

    Also, are you talking about the Xbox One or the Xbox 360 console? And is this about a Xbox One game or Xbox 360 game?

    If you're talking about a backwards compatible Xbox 360 game that you are trying to run on a Xbox One, then the physical disc is only a "proof of purchase" (which you already have for your digital version), and the console has to download a "translated"
    backwards compatible version of the game anyways, as the data on the Xbox 360 disc is unusable for the Xbox One.

    If a game was removed after delisting (most games are still available for download for people that bought the game before it was delisted), you can't download it, even with the physical disc.

    Only a real Xbox 360 console would be able to play the disc.

    So maybe if you told us what game(s) you are talking about exactly, we could help you more.

    how to request a game?

    If it's not listed on the Xbox store then it's not possible to purchase it digitally. Not all 360 games are on the marketplace and some games are delisted after a while.

    Redownloading if anything happens in the future?

    That game that was delisted and you own is from Xbox One or Xbox 360?

    hello my first time posting have a question...

    "game room" and the extras are totally delisted and removed from the marketplace. even if you go to your download history you cannot recover this game. most of the time you can re-download delisted games on 360, but not this one. sorry.
