Q: Will I have to pay for a Live Arcade game again if I delete it?
A:No, Xbox Live keeps track of the things you've purchased and you should be able to simply download it again for free. (I havn't tested this so don't hold me accountable if you get charged a 2nd time, I'm just repeating what MS has claimed) I should also not that most of the content that comes pre-loaded on the Xbox Hard Drive is NOT availble through the marketplace. If you delete Hexic HD then it's gone for good.
Q: I got disconnected/accidentally hit cancel/did something stupid while I was downloading something, Will I have to start my download all over again?
A: NO, downloads should pickup right where where they left off if the connection is lost for whatever reason.

Q: Why are only select Games BC?
A: The Xbox 360 emulates and Xbox 1 using a software emulator, because of this each game must go through compatibility testing and have a special "profile" created for it. The Games on the above list are those that have profiles available. MS will be adding more and more profiles as time goes on.

A: If you have Xbox Live (Gold or Silver) the profile will download to your Xbox automatically. If you do not have Xbox Live you can download the profiles on the Xbox website and burn them to a disc, then load that disc into your Xbox 360 console. If you don't have Xbox Live OR a PC with a burner, then you can have MS ship you a disc with the BC profiles on it. Instructions for downloading/burning/ordering a disc can be found on the official Xbox website http://www.xbox.com/...mpatibility.htm
