    Only problem with SA on the 360, is that the cutscenes sometimes end up not syncing with the sounds, which is a problem i only experience on the 360. Still a rare problem though.

    The best result playing Xbox 1 games is in 720p or 1080i.

    Do you have an internal hard drive? you have to have an internal hard drive with the backwards comparability partition to play Xbox Classic games.

    The Xbox 360 E supports this, however some do not ship with an internal hard drive by default.

    If you have an internal hard drive you have just put in the console and formatted, you do not have the backwards compatibility partition, so follow my tutorial here: Upgrade a Jtagged Xbox 360's hard drive, restore the avatars and Xbox 1 emulator to setup the required partition.

    This will erase everything on the internal hard drive so be sure to back up any content to your PC first.
