    I think the 360 backwards compatibility can be a bit iffy at times, but the SLim should have the same as the normal 360.

    there should be some list somewhere of what you can play, and i think you also need like an xbox live connection to play them, thats what the xbox guy told me i think, or maybe that was just to have the latest system version idk

    You at least need a hard drive because that is where all the Xbox compatibility files are stored. I'm not sure about LIVE, just update (unless you've got a JTAG capable system, of course) and you should be able to play them.

    You'll need to be connected to xbox live the first time so it can download the emulation profiles, but after that you shouldnt need to be online. I play original xbox games on mine(Jasper, not slim) offline all the time without issues.

    Considering you can get an xbox for around £20. Its not worth bothering about the 360 playing a few xbox games. Although some of the upskaled ones to HD look nice.
