Can't purchase Xbox BC games with Account Balance

9 posts in this topic

Like a month ago I was trying to get Tekken Tag 2 on my Xbox One since it's backwards compatible. I was sad to discover you had to purchase any Xbox 360 game digitally with a credit/debit card. I caved in though becuase I love Tekken.

So we are having this ultimate Game Sale and I see Red Dead up there. I thought they would've fixed the problem but it still requires credit/debit money. So I don't know what to do.

Well I can afford Shadow of Mordor or Metro Redux.

What he said, granted if you were to purchase the game through most mediums these days it is going to be digital. Unless you go to gamestop or best buy.

You're not alone, Deezy. Same thing happened to me with Red Dead. It was only about seven dollars and change so it was alright but indeed it is lame you can't use your Microsoft Points/Account Balance etc to get BC games.

Also side question...Is Jet Set Radio available for purchase for anyone? Always shows me Bundle Only....That game was awesome on the Dreamcast/Original Xbox.

Or you can buy it on the 360 and transfer it on the one

I don't have access to a Xbox 360. And while I do have a debit card bound to my account it will do me no good if I have no cash on it.

On the website you can purchase it for 5 dollars if you got Gold. But once again, only with credit or debit card.

I just don't understand why I can't use the wallet money. I see stuff on the Xbox Forums and many people complain but no fix. I don't think MS understands all the money they are losing. I didn't play Red Dead last gen and now I can't buy it off their platform.

I was wondering about this myself. I have a $10 credit on my account, and when i tried to use it to buy Stick of Truth, it just took it off my debit card instead. Kind of bull that you can't buy the BC games with account credit.

No kidding, this is some supreme bullshit. If it's valid to redeem ox XBL, credit should be accessible no matter what you're buying. But, sadly, it appears it is the way it is.
