    I can’t buy a backwards compatible game from my Xbox


    I put money on my account so I could buy a game (portal 2), and the same error keeps popping up - ‘Your account is unable to make this type of purchase on xbox.com. Please complete this transaction from your xbox.’ The problem is though, I AM doing it
    from the store on my xbox. I went to the help part of the xbox website and it says to complete it on my xbox 360. Another problem: I DONT HAVE an xbox 360. Is there an alternative to this? I spent money and I would like to have the game I want to pay for.

    :)

    Quick question!

    Buying a 360 game on Xbox.com adds the game to your download queue on the 360, so the next time the console switches on it can begin downloading. The ''ready to install'' list on Xbox one runs from your purchase history. So as long as the game you are buying
    IS backwards compatible, It should work.

    Hope this Helps!

    it would be great if it was backwards for xbox one [...] it would be awsome if it was backwards for xbox
    As you can see on https://www.xbox.com/xbox-one/backward-compatibility/available-games, the game IS backwards compatible.

    However, since it is delisted from the Marketplace, you can't buy it digitally anymore. You will have to have the physical disc to play it.

    Backwards Compatibility-Start Focusing More On Console Releases!

    I didn't say I threw out my Xbox 360. I still have it. However, my Xbox Live account only covers my Xbox One. Therefore, certain DLCs I want, I can't have unless that game becomes backwards compatible. I also can't move from my Steam versions of the original
    Far Cry and Call of Duty unless the Classic titles become backwards compatible so I can buy, download and install them on my Xbox One. Plus, I want to eventually sell the Xbox 360 for money, but I can't until all the games I mentioned become backwards compatible.
    I think we can all agree that it would be nice for titles like these to become compatible.
