    Xbox 360 Microsoft Account Currency


    I have around $43 in my Microsoft account. I want to use it to purchase Portal on my Xbox 360. When I press purchase on its page, it loads, then says that my credit card info could not be reached and to purchace it with my account balance. I saw no option
    to do this, so how do I do that exactly?

    :)

    ozBody Count100,

    You won't be able to purchase the 360 title from the Xbox One or Xbox.com using a Microsoft gift card or account currency. The only way to purchase 360 content with currency/gift card is through an Xbox 360 console.

    Beware of putting money into your Xbox Live account

    Hey, FloatingKruger! The logic is that when Microsoft Points turned into Microsoft Currency, the website would not accept the currency for Xbox 360 games (though an Xbox 360 will allow currency to be used). This happened back in 2012. The Xbox One BC games
    use the same source as the website. Thus, you need to have a credit card on file to make purchases for Xbox 360 games while on your Xbox One and the xbox.com website.

    There used to be the Xbox Family Pack where you could give your child accounts points, however that has been retired for a few years now. The best way to get currency onto your son's account is by purchasing a currency card from a retailer or the
    Microsoft Store, and then put the 25-digit code onto his account.

    Hopefully that clears up the situation with currency and purchasing Xbox 360 games. Let me know if you have further questions that I can assist you with. :D

    Sorry. Your purchase cannot be completed at this time. Please try again.

    Hey there,

    For Xbox 360 purchases made through the Xbox One console or through the Xbox Marketplace on Xbox.com, a credit card on file is required. Additionally, Microsoft Account currency cannot be used for Xbox 360 game purchases outside of the Xbox 360 console.

    Hope this helps clear up the situation.
    Can I purchase backwards compatible games Xbox 360 games with Microsoft currency?

    I've checked, and apparently the only things that are down are some Xbox One sports games. Thanks though!

    When I go to purchase it, it automatically sets it to the credit card. When I press change payment option, it only shows two credit cards, not my balance. So, to sum it up, it didn't work. Thanks for the suggestion though!
