    I can't play my Xbox 360 games on my Xbox Series X


    What's the issue?
    I can't sign into my Xbox 360 account to play Xbox 360 games and save the data to my Xbox Series X console. The specific game I am trying to play right now is Oblivion.

    What did I expect to happen?

    A successful sign in my Xbox 360 Account upon trying to play Oblivion. This would allow me to save data in game as well.

    What actually happened?

    When I tried to sign in, my Xbox told me that my account was invalid. It still allowed me to play, though, so I did. When I first tried to save I again tried to save against my 360 account. Again, this failed. So I saved the data against my brother's 360 account instead. My brother's account is signed in on my Xbox.

    Why do I think this happened?
    I changed my Xbox Live name a while back before I had ever played a 360 game on this console. Xbox Series X games work fine with the new name, but Xbox 360 games don't seem to register my name change. 360 games are still trying to sign me into a 360 account under my old Live name. My personal guess of what's happening is that when I changed my Live name it also changed my 360 account name. But 360 games aren't picking up on this change and so it fails upon sign in.

    Potential Solutions?
    I have many:

    1. Allow me to update the 360 Account associated to my Series X Xbox. Something native to my Xbox would be great, but doing this from my computer would be fine to.
    2. Get Xbox Support to fix the account associated to my Series X Xbox.
    What do I need?

    I need the information or means to carry out either 1 or 2 from potential solutions. That, or I need a new potential solution. But I can't find 1 anywhere and it seems that Microsoft made it impossible to get a real human for support on Xbox.

    Please help me. I've wasted so much time on this. I just want to play games from my childhood.

    :)

    Hello Xbox community, this is about Xbox series x/s versions of games!

    Because on my Xbox series x, it only shows 'Optimized for series x/s' but if a xbox series x version of a game is NOT 'optimized' how would i know if I'm playing a series x/s version of a game?

    Xbox 360 console not playing series X game

    Hello, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    Unfortunately the game can't be played on the Xbox 360 console. It can only be played on the Series X|S consoles.

    Hope this helps

    Xbox Series X multiplayer with Xbox one

    Hello there,

    every Xbox 360 and or Xbox one game you can play via backwards compatibility on your series X/S share the same multiplayer network, so yes you can play those games with your friends across different generations of Xbox. However for future games releasing
    on Xbox one and series X/S separately, I can't confirm that it will work a 100%.

    Will I be able to play Splinter cell chaos theory if I buy it from the marketplace for Xbox 360?

    Yes, if you purchase the game from the Xbox 360 marketplace, you can play it on the Xbox 360, Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S.

    As for what Hardcore Games said, you can still buy Xbox games for the Xbox 360, and play them on the Xbox 360, and if they are backward compatible, play them on the Xbox One & Xbox Series X|S.

    Spider man game not on Xbox one

    Based on my understanding of how the Series X is going to work, it should be playable on that system.
    Forgive me but your understanding is wrong.

    Series X is going to play only the current Xbox 360 and original Xbox games that have been made BC until now, and most, if not all, Xbox One games. It won't play every Xbox game.
