Criterion has said that they will not add Xbox One backward compatibility support to Burnout Revenge.
Nnnnoooooooooooo !!!! Are you kidding me Criterion ???
Wonder how many other companies are going to deny xbox BC? Cannot see a reason why Criterion said no
I thought criterion had disbanded anyway. I hope I'm wrong tho
Criterion: " “no plans” to bring Burnout Revenge to Xbox One backwards compatibility" Burnout Revenge Xb1 BC CONFIRMED! What? I speak Corporate ;-)
Indeed Meatyboy. A piece of the team + the original creators moved on to a new studio. They are creating a new car IP I believe.
It would technically be up to EA; they own Criterion and the Burnout IP.
How about burnout paradise. . . .My favorite burnout Edit. I see paradise has been confirmed. . Odd they're not releasing all iterations
There is no good reason for this. If people already own the games, why deny them the choice to play it where ever it would play. I hope they are not thinking I will by the remake later. Same goes for Take Two.
Criterion does not even have the rights for BurnOut anymore (they belong to EA).
Criterion itself belongs to EA.... The creators of Burnout did start a new offshoot studio outside of EA's realm though. Not sure what its called. Its exists.
oh they think it alright. And you will.
Funny... Wish I could add to your bubbles.
They said the same about remasters AFAIK so dont expect a remaster collection of any sort.
Good that i still have original Xbox !
This is a travesty. The publisher and the dev has to literally only give MS the ok to run the game on XB1 and they're denying it? For what reason exactly? THE GAME IS DONE SELLING. It's not going to sell you any more copies on 360. What's the point of this bullcrap? Tired of this anti consumer garbage with these publishers. I bought the damn game on 360 and theres a legal way from a multibillion dollar company for me to play the game I purchased, for full price might I add, on my Xbox One and you're denying that for what? What could possibly be the reason for this? Criterion instead of pulling crap like this how about not shipping rubbish games like NFS Rivals. This is just as anti consumer as you can get and the fact that the dude on twitter had the balls to just casually say hey we're not gonna make it BC without giving any logical reason is ridiculous. There's no reason why there wasn't at the very least 300 to 400 360 games available at launch. Just zero reason. Makes no sense economically, makes no sense on a corporate level to deny these games to a system with zero piracy, and most of all it makes no sense to crap on loyal consumers. Such a great feature being ruined by greedy devs and publishers and another reason why native BC is so important. Criterion thanks for showing your true colors and I'll be buying your games used from now on.
This is can only help them since they're already bringing Burnout paradise to xbox one, and according to rumours working on a new burnout. Why they'd do this I don't understand. But from the actual tweet they're not saying it won't happen. They literally said "no plans right now", I don't really consider that a negative confirmation.
My question is where's the downside to it? Literally where do they get hurt in this? They don't have to port the game or use any man power. Simply give them permission legally to emulate it and that's it. If anything the game would actually begin to sell again on XB1.
Silly. I'd buy burnout digitally the moment they let this one fly... It would be a create way to guage interest in the franchise. Just dumb
thats fine, takedown was the better game and i still have my original xbox to play it. bought the pre-played ps2 version as well so that i could play it on my BC ps3.
I have "no plans" to get any of their games now....meanies...
I'm sure it will end up on ea access.
That's exactly what I was going to say , if you have EA Access the you get to play their 360 games.
Welcome to my S*** list criterion, there is literally no valid reasoning to not allowing your game to be on BC.
WHY? JUST WHY? This is not fair.
i really can't see why anybodt would refuse backwards compatability unless they were planning a remaster
Another reason to go with PS Now. For the price of 3 games a year, im playing games like Shadow of the Colossus, ICO, Twisted Metal, Killzone 3, The last of us, the Uncharteds, Deus Ex, Batman, Xcom, NFS, Mass Effect games, payday, Saints Row games, Resident Evil games, and really whatever I haven't played over the generations. Yes, XBox1 BC is free, and ps now is paid, but just like how last gen Xbox live was 'pay' and psn was 'free' didn't mean 'free' was a better deal, Xbox live was better than Psn. PS Now is way better than Xbox BC too
wow somebody was watching hiphop youtube channel.... Funny how you mentioned those games but you didnt mention the fact you are playing this specific burnout game tho.... but you can keep double dipping with sony while we xboxers play our 360 owned games for nothing on our xbox one.
Dumb move criterion.
Hold onto your last gen consoles because this won't be the last to say no and is why both 360 bc and ps now will never be able to play everyones favourite game. I know that tales of vesperia is unlikely to appear on the xbox one bc list because since vesperia the tales games have been exclusive to playstation which is why I will never get rid of my 360.
Criterion not an smart move and EA a terrible move on your part.
I loved all three Burnout games on 360. Revenge, Paradise, and Crash! But, if a developer sees no need in BC when they don't really have to do anything to make it happen, I see no need in buying their next game.
