Grab It is reporting that three more titles have been identified as heading towards backwards compatibility support.
Pretty happy about Crysis 3 - question though. Do you have to download it to your Xbox 360 now through Games With Gold, or can you download it to your Xbox One and leave it for a few months.
Just go online and buy it for 360 (free) then it will download on the xbox one, assuming it's backwards compatible. I have been collecting all the games with gold since it started and slowly but surly they are appearing on my xbox one as they become backwards compatible.
Awesome! Thank you!
Wow 133 and counting. I think that's a pretty awesome size right out of the game, and with still more announcements to be made. Microsoft is killing it.
If Rockstar and Acti come in, it will jump by 20 overnight, too.
Burnout Paradise is still in my mind one of the best racers I've played - since Burnout 3, at any rate. Replaying it might ease the pain of probably never seeing another Burnout game again.
Wish I could have played paradise without the burnout name attached, I might have loved it then. But it was so far from being a Burnout game, it was easily my biggest disappointment of last generation. Shame, because it's a good game.
Very true. The 'crash mode' especially was totally not Burnout. It was a great game, but a different beast from the rest of the series.
Be interesting to see how the Xbox backwards compatibility program and the PS Now streaming of older games stack up against each other for popularity. I can see pros and cons for both.
xbox ones backwards compatibility will obviously be alot more popular than playstation now for one main reason. its free and comes with every xbox one, playstation now is a paid service and only some people will be paying to use it. only con i can see with xnox B/C is not every game will work with it but that can be fixed in time.
Where is my VIRTUA FIGHTER 5 MS?!?! GRRRRRR!!!!!!!
That is a question for Sega more than MS. I would like to see the Sonic games come across as well.
lovely stuff indeed
So are these titles "Confirmed backwards compatible by preview members" or "just on the list" now? There's a huge list of rumors, but still only like 20 or so that have shown up as B/C. I can't wait until full release. Yes, my electronic titles show up as downloadable, but the disc based ones are hit and miss. I'd love a notification that says "that game you have an achievement on is now B/C!" so if I have the disc I can download it. There are some titles that will never show up, sadly, and make me keep my 360 around. Such as The Simpsons or TMNT original arcade. I just wish the Kinect problem could be figured out, so 2.0 reads like 1.0. If anything, I want the front of my TV to be less cluttered.
Ms said every xbox 360 games with gold games will be backwards compatible so yes its official
I think the list of BC games will be closer to 200 than 100 when this launches in November. The ability to offer previous versions as an incentive will get publishers to jump on board. Even offering other titles or discounting titles no longer selling adds value that might sell a new game. The Halo beta sold Crackdown, digital copies of older games, especially once they start when they start BC on Original Xbox games, could be a great incentive to push new games or even new IP.
We don't need more shooters, just bring more "games" to a system that desperately needs them.
Actually we do need more shooters, we need the old Call of Duty's and Bad Company 2.
Yep. I want CoD 2 - MW2 and the holy grail of Bad Company 2.
What about Burnout and Midway? A destructive arcade racer and a action RTS. As for the desperate need of new games you must not even own an X1. I have over 275 games on my X1 console (Excluding BC games). I don't see how that is a lack of games.
Never ceases to amaze me how folks make assumptions out of thin air. I've forgotten more games than most have played on this site. I own all consoles. You may check my profiles. Here is my collection: http://cloud.collectorz.com... Please, enlighten me as to the 275 games that XBone has right now. And yeah, there are like shooters coming out the wood work, what BOTH current-gen system need are "games". Stuff like Paradise City, Splatter House, Never Dead, Lollipop Chainsaw....not more guns or remasters.
@Milkman I'll just list the games since August 1st... Beyond Eyes, Boggle, The Swindle, Submerged, Beat Buddy, Toy Soldiers Toy Chest, Super Mega Baseball, Commander Cherry's Puzzle Journey, Smite (official release), Squid Hero, Giana Sisters Dream Runners, Velocity, Pure Hold'em, Bridge Constructor, Adventures of PIP, Clash, Madden 16, Goat Simulator MMOre Goats, Octodad Deadliest Catch, Yasai Ninja, and Dont's Starve. I can see from your games on Collector's that not many would appeal to you from that list. But to say there is a lack of games is wrong. What you might want to say is that you'd prefer to see more RPGs, RTS, Horror, Survival, and highly technical games. This gen is lacking in all those categories.
Ha badass. I freaking love burnout paradise
Great news indeed as the list should be massive comes launch in November.
Please MS, please add Sonic Racing Tranformed!!!
Where does this list come from? I've never seen MS report on this officially, just this same website over and over. If this was real, why is nobody else reporting on it? I'm just waiting for something, anything, official at this point.
Just freeze frame the video during the press conferences and you can see most of these titles. No one else seems to have gone to that effort. True though that everything is pending an official list. They might even hold some back to create a consistent string of announcements.
Yup, speculation at best. Not buying this till i get the official list from M$.
If i am playing thr multiplayer element of some of these games online am i playing with 360 players and/or x1 players?
Both. The beauty of the XB1 BC is that every game that are online, the XB1 goes to the same server as the X360 so you can be playing on your XB1 and playing people on X360 and other XB1 console as well.
Anyone know if these games will have servers again??
