    Games not compatible with Microsoft


    I downloaded a few games that I already had on discs and now when I download a game from Big Fish I get a message saying the game is not compatible with Microsoft. I always used to be able to download and play the games so what have I done? I never changed
    any settings or anything. How can I fix this please? I am on Windows 10 and using Bing on Firefox

    :)

    Backwards Compatibility Updates​

    Backwards compatibility is largely based on the publishers allowing the games to be backwards compatible. So it's not all on Microsoft.

    Some older games are only compatible with older versions of windows. You could try running them in compatiblity mode (google that one).

    each iteration of windows adds new software which in turn makes them less likely to work with older software, there is lots of ways around this but it takes research and a bit of a learning curve.

    You could always run an older version of windows in a virtual box but this is where you will need to learn this.

    Not much else can be done that will easily fix it, you could google the game and see if there are any fixes for them to make them work with windows 10.

    I have some old bigfish games and some of them refuse to work on anything higher than windows 7.

    original xbox games compatibility issues

    I just wish that microsoft had made all the original xbox games compatible

    some of these games are now basically useless

    unless microsoft starts sending out alot of updates regarding original xbox games compatibilities

    Bring all Harry Potter games to Xbox one via backward compatability please!!!

    It would be nice to see a Remastered collection or have them as Compatibility games.

    It is down to the Game Developers and Publishers to allow Microsoft to make them compatible

    Will every xbox 360 game be compatible on the xbox one?

    I'm sure Microsoft would love to have every game be compatible, but it's also up to the publishers so unfortunately not all games will be made compatible.
