Really want to play Halo 2, a question on Backwards Compatibility.

#1Lgoron12Posted 12/5/2012 11:28:42 AM
I have the 4 GB xbox slim, and I have a "non-official" 250 gb HDD that i got off of Amazon for 50 dollars instead of the usual 100 ones from microsoft.

Would i still be able to play halo 2?

All I can tell you is you can't play multiplayer in xbl.

I'd arrest you if I had handcuffs.

Impossible to say without trying as it depends on how the 3rd party HDD was formatted. If not done properly, BC won't work.

hmmm, all right. I guess the only way to find out is to try it.

No. You won't be able to play any original Xbox games.
LIVE is disabled for all original Xbox games regardless of hard drive since sometime a year or 2 ago.

The guy a couple posts up is wrong. You can still play original Xbox games, just not online multiplayer.

Pretty much, unless, like MNSpectre said before, the 3rd party formatted it with the correct partition on it, which from what I've heard, doesn't happen too much. once you get the drive, go somewhere and buy the cheapest original xbox game(or borrow one from a buddy) you can find just to see i it will play it.

If you are talking about me, that confirms what I said...
Unless you have an official HD, then you, most likely, won't be able to play original Xbox games

You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console if you have an official Xbox 360 Hard Drive.
Notes •If you are not able to play a game on the following list, try updating your console software.
•Game saves from an original Xbox console cannot be transferred to an Xbox 360 console.
•Xbox LIVE functionality for original Xbox games has been discontinued. You can, however, play system link between original Xbox and Xbox 360 consoles. Learn how to connect consoles for system link play.
