I have in the past purchased Street fighter 4 AE; I think I used to own a hard copy, but not anymore.

I logged into my Windows Live account on Xbox Live's website and I saw that I had Achievements in the game. Which means that my Windows Live account does have a Street Fighter 4 AE CD key attached to it.

How do I re-download the game if I haven't purchased it from the Windows live site?

If you owned the game as a CD then you need a CD to play it. You can't just download it for free.

You can check if you purchased the game online at

  • click on "My Account"
  • click on "Billing History"
  • enter your login credentials (you will end up at
  • click on "Transaction"
  • adjust search criteria and click the "search" button.

There you should see something like "Street Fighter 4 AE: Xbox 360 Edition" as the description with a "Purchase" transaction type.

If it's there you should simply be able to download the game again either via or directly from your Xbox.

I think this is the link to the game you're talking about:

However, if it's not an online purchase then you need the CD to play it again.

  • Find the original disc

  • Purchase the retail version again
