Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility

Found 23rd Jan
For anyone who was still wondering I have now successfully managed to download a game (Jurassic Park) from the American Xbox marketplace. The game has downloaded and works fine on my Xbox one through backward comparability.

I achieved it through first migrating my Xbox account to the USA and then using Vper VPN on my android device to purchase from the American marketplace using a Revolut card.

Seems a tad OTT. I was on the understanding you could only migrate every six months or so?

​I believe it's every 3 months Buzz. Did it more as a proof of concept. I wanted to see if games purchased on foreign stores for Xbox 360 would work through backward comparability on an Xbox one in the Uk.

Well I've heard there's a 99% off sale on 360 titles on the UK store next week

​That would be just my luck tbh haha

You don't need to migrate your account to the US to do this.
Just use a VPN and sign-in to the US (or whichever country you choose) market place website and purchase the games you want.
They'll then appear in your UK account immediately.

​Unfortunately that's true for Xbox one but not the 360 marketplace. Believe me when I say I exhausted every possibility before I could get it to work :P.

​Its very similar to other telltale games if you've ever played them. More of an interactive story than an actual game but I enjoy them :). Very easy to pick up and put down.
