The Xbox Games Store allows users to download or purchase three types of games: Xbox Live Arcade games, full Xbox 360 titles from the Games on Demand section, and Xbox Live Indie games. The Xbox Live Arcade section contains digital-only games, such as ports of classic games and new original games. The Games on Demand section contains downloadable versions of Xbox 360 titles and games released for the original Xbox. The Xbox Live Indie section consists of games created by independent developers and small studios. The games must pass through a peer review system to prevent inappropriate content from appearing in games. The peer review system also ensures that games meet Microsoft's technical standards and do not misrepresent their content.

Add-ons for existing games and game demos are also downloadable from the Xbox Games Store. To download games to the console, sign into Xbox Live on the console. Go to the "Games" category, and select "Browse Games." Select the game, add-on or demo that you want to download, and select "Confirm Download."
