Playing through Dark Souls for the first time, glad this was available.
This is great for gamers; Sony really botched a great opportunity to include this feature.
Sony fan here and I completely agree. It is a shame the ps3 architecture was a pain. I can understand charging for the PS2 games since they have trophies etc but if you could pop in a ps2 disk that would also be nice. Although I would buy the trophy version where possible. I hope going forward since Sony has been smart with their design that going forward all games will be backwards compatible
Yeah you can never have too many games I'm loving BC I get to play games that I missed out on last gen and play classics that I loved
I am sure some people don't care about BC but for people like me who no longer own a last gen console but still have a collection of games this is More than welcomed.
Doesn't seem to be case as it Is not a killer feature and the PlayStation continues to dominate the market.
I tried it out on my One, but wasn't impressed with the performance so I re-bought a 360. Some games run better, but the one game I want added probably wont run better and that is RDR ( may be moot with news of a remaster this year). Better to have all games playable than just the ones MS decides to add...Bioshock needs to happen NOW, soo late.
The Xbox One is great if you're looking for an Xbox 360.
@mkis Microsoft doesn't decide what games become BC. If it were up to them all games would be. It's up to the developers to decide if they want their games to be BC.
Is Dark Souls on BC now? Not DS2, but the original?
Yea it's been BC
Yup, with the new addition of able to buy X360 BC titles directly from the XB1 itself with the upcoming update, the floodgate has opened. Publishers will see new opportunity to sell their popular old games for new gamers on another platform without doing a thing or spending a dime other than to say yes and let MS does the rest. A win win for publishers, MS, gamers that already have those games, GwG subscribers that are receiving 2 BC per month, new gamers that want to play those old titles that still looks awesome on today's console. Also, a great incentive to give people a reason to pre order games by including BC titles with newer sequels like say a copy of Red Dead Redemption BC for the rumor RDR sequel later on this year. So much win for BC.
It was very smart of them to sell the BC games, Just wish they would bring Ace Combat 6 to BC.
I hope RDR goes BC long before the sequel releases. It can still be included, I just don't want to wait much longer...
I can't wait to play Red Dead!!
Im not complaining, its a great feature to have.
Ps fo don't know
If they bring BC for OG Xbox games - that would be insane.
It would be awesome but the only downside is xbl isn't available on original xbox anymore so it would have to be the single player games that are available.
Is not making people buy an x1 over a PS4 but at least is a good to have feature.
This isn't about selling consoles, this is about gamers getting to play more games. I never played Tales of Vesperia or Lost Odyssey. And I can tell you now, my TV can't handle any more consoles besides my Wii U, PS4, Xbox One and Wii (used for GameCube games). Buying a 360 is not an option. So this is huge for gamers like me who want to broaden their horizons with 7th gen classics.
Multidisk games still don't work. Hold your breath they will make it happen !!!
Says the antagonist. Great feature to have and one that was asked for by the Xbox community. And one you dont..=)
Yea more options is dumb.
There are still plenty of people that have yet to upgrade to next-gen. It may not be a huge selling point, but it's a selling point nonetheless.
LOL no one care about the xbox one or BC..stop with the propaganda
Lol lol hahaha lol I care. I actually like playing video games. So, ya know, access to 7th gen classics, it matters.
But you care . Seriously if you hate Xbox why start this fanboy rant
i have a xbox one i still have the original xbox also
Speak for yourself
All I need is o.box left 4 dead fable 1 and forza 1-4
