  1. Games and Apps won't start on Xbox1S - what do I do??


    To start off, I've never had an Xbox before so this is all a little new to me. I have a very good 2nd hand Xbox 1S that I got a few days ago and it runs very well except for this one issue. I have downloaded a bunch of games and apps (apps like Youtube, Twitch etc.) and have put them into 'groups' for easy access. However, unless the game or app is in the Home bar for recent activity, I can't start any of them!! Anytime I press 'A' to start Youtube (for example, but this is the same for all of them) it brings up a screen saying to either view in the store, manage or 'view in queue'! It's fully downloaded and I can only access it if it's at the top of the home page. I put all my games and apps into groups thinking that this would be easier to find them to start and play them... but that's kind of ruined if I can't actually START any of them! What's going on?? Is there another way to make it easier to find games and apps to start. The ones (like YouTube) are all fully downloaded so that shouldn't be an issue, but yet it keeps wanting me to go into the Microsoft Store or to look at the queue which has nothing in it because it's already downloaded!

    :)

    Start a petition to be able play old games on xbox one

    I could careless about being able to play OLD 360 games on my Xbox1, what I wish they would do is let you have your arcade games ported over to the Xbox1.

    Microsoft: Xbox 360 will last till 2016, over 100 new games on the way

    Good news, though i think the same way as most gamers out there and that is the majority of games coming out for the 360 will be out for the xbox1. And i dont think that until the game companies get to know how to unlease the full power of the xbox1, we
    won't see much of a difference between the two consoles.......yet.......but, they will in time.

    BC - Rearmed 2 not showing in "Ready to Install"

    Looks like I spoke too soon. After the game installed it still won't start, getting the "Do you own this game or app?" message.

    how to play old xbox games on the Xbox360

    Alot of the older Xbox1 games will work on 360. (the more popular game selections that is)

    What you CAN'T do however is play any of them online because all the xbox1 servers have been killed.
