Microsoft has once again released another trio of backwards compatible games which are now ready to play on Xbox One and Xbox One S consoles.
You're killing me smalls
You play ball like a girl
I wonder about Mistwalker's games. would be great to see them in this.
Waiting for Lost Odyssey. I thought Blue Dragon was already added. Guess not.
Come on... Splinter Cell: Conviction!
Wake me up when BF2, BFBC, or BFBC2 are backwards compatible.
Give me medal of honor! Advanced
Rubbish. If you're doing BC do it right. I don't own XB1 but they should add Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Midnight Club LA, Burnout Paradise, and Modern Warfare 2.
Bad Company 2
Yeah I guess. Still the best game under the banner of "Battlefield"
Bad Company 2 is on Steam still...however Bad Company 1 has never had a release past ps3/360
MS would love to just add game , but something tells me the ones holding up the games are the publishers & developers of those games .
okay, i can understand their position on not adding new games that people want, so why no go public with this info and basically shame the publishers into releasing the stuff for BC, its not like they are going to remaster everything
Could be, but publishers of games that no longer sell would be open to an all new market and those who do own the games may purchase an expansion they never got around to buying... Seems to me this would be a win for publishers but you never know.
They should never have asked publishers in the first place. Backwards compatability is basic computing. I know they have to emulate but that's irrelevant. This way we get like 5% of the games. Let the publishers sue. They'd lose.
Where is Metal Gear Rising: Revengence!? D':
COD MW BC is once again being suppressed by Activision so they can shove their Remastered version down our throats
oh yeah, becasue when Black ops was added they totally fixed the broken ass multiplayer. There's anew COD every year, why do you need the older ones to be added? Thats just a waste of time.
Mostly want Trials: Evolution at this point.. they already have Trials HD and Trials: Fusion (and Trials of the Blood Dragon if you count that crap) why not complete the set?
I want Fight Night Champion!!!
Until your game hits this list, this feature is useless to you. I got to play Dark Souls for the first time using B.C. It was so good. After my 200 hour play through I was finished. Now.........I haven't used the feature since. Its so bad on the Playstation side I had to go out and buy a new PS3 $220 just so I could play one game that was a PS3 exclusive, Demon's Souls. It was worth it though. LOL. Since I won't be getting anymore games for the PS3, I'll probably have a second play through with Demon's Souls.
Ps3's are around $100 new with 3-4 games You got ripped off bud
Where? Show me a retailer for a new PS3 for $100 with a link. Not Amazon, not Walmart, not Target, not Best Buy. I looked at all those sites and retailers. Walmart is currently $219. Which you can almost get an Xbox One for that.
Yeah I saw PS4 for $230 .. Wowser, you were Ripped off :(
Play Ni No Kuni if you're jumping into Ps3's back catalog.
I did check it out. Doesn't look too bad at all. I'm sure its a decent price as well. Thanks.
I just checked Gamestops website and it lists a brand new ps3 disney infinity bundle for $111 and in stock. I'm not sending link because you can easily search it and see for yourself
I found what you were looking at. Its the 12 GB console. I didn't know if it was gonna be enough memory because they couldn't tell me if the whole 12 GB was available after updates and what not when you started up the console when I asked them about it two months ago at Gamestop. I probably should have mentioned for 250 GB or highier. You were right though. Sorry bout that. :)
Phantasy Star universe please
I didn't expect to see another PSU fan around here :D
Everyone forgets to complain to publisher/developers who are being stingy. Overall, props to MS, EA, Rockstar, Square Enix, CD project, etc. The rest like Konami, Ubisoft need to step there game up.
I knew the backwards compatibility for XBO was going to be a joke. There were a few decent games they dished out at first but it's turned into nothing but ports of old "Arcade" games nobody asked for that have been on PC and countless other systems for years. They're not even really backwards compatible, they're just ports! They just happened to be on Xbox 360 so they say they're "backwards compatible" and use them to pad the list. Why don't they announce something substantial like Star Ocean, Final Fantasy, Resonance of Fate or any other JRPG for that matter? Maybe give me Crackdown so I can get hyped for the new game (if it ever comes out) or the Lost Planet games. I'm happy that 2/4 Halo games are on there, but not Street Fighter IV? Why give me Mass Effect and not the other 2?? But You'll give us Monopoly and all the LEGO games, great.
Maybe you should read the comment above you dude just saying
How so? You were literally given directions on how to understand why your comment is completely ignorant to the process by looking at the post directly above yours. Microsoft can only put games into backwards compatibility with the publisher's consent. No consent, no BC. And it's not a matter of pushing a button. There is work that goes into prepping the game to be available to be read by the disc drive, installed and played. There is nothing about it that is a joke. It is a free service they are doing that costs them money to perform. They do the games they are allowed to. Either enjoy it when a game you like gets added or direct your frustration at the correct party. You know why they gave you Mass Effect and not the other two? Because Bioware said so. Would you like me to continue? Because even with everything broken down for you in plain English, not sure you're going to follow.
(1/3) Calm down buddy. I admit that I was ignorant about how the “ports” work. They run on an emulator and not Windows 10 native so they are more difficult to bring to the XBO. Besides that, do I not have a point? That the majority of backwards compatible games being released are old Arcade games? Most of which nobody I know has jumped up and down with joy to have? Go look at the list yourself if you don’t believe me (~171 Arcade, ~60 “Games On Demand”). Moving on. Yes they need publisher consent, you are correct. But that shouldn't be our responsibility to obtain. Why should it be on our shoulders to email publishers? It’s Microsoft’s job to gauge interest. They wouldn’t have bothered with backwards compatibility if their business plan was to rely on the consumers to contact publishers in their stead. They know this and it is not something they expect of us. Instead they have a thread on their forums that most owners don’t know it exists (btw ME2+3 are in the top ten fyi).What they should have done is provided an engaging, easy to locate tool to give XBO owners the opportunity to vote once a week from a selection, or perhaps host a webpage that links from the XBO dashboard where the Live community can vote and discuss. I’m sorry to burst your fanboy bubble, but what Microsoft is doing is porting the easiest games they can so they can pad the list and claim, “We have over X number of backwards compatible games”. They dangle a ho-hum, late-to-the-party, afterthought feature in front of XBO owners to help whoever bought their laggy Frankenstein, Windows 10 game console feel better about the $500 all-in-one brick they bought while trying desperately to justify the purchase for those who don’t yet own one so they can catch up with Sony.
(2/3) If I’m wrong about the padding and your theory about publisher consent is the biggest issue, tell me then why we don’t have more first party Microsoft Game Studios games like Crackdown? The only mentionable MSGS games on the list are Fable II, Gears (1-3), Viva Pinata, and Kameo. No Forza, only half the Halo games, no PGR, Lost Odyssey, Alan Wake, Ninja Gaiden, etc. To speak further in regards to publisher consent, those publishers have priorities on their agenda that far outweigh giving away their old games for free, especially when they can charge for them on other systems like they do on PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, 3DS, and mobile. It’s even less of a priority when the development cost you speak of is factored in. Hell, I’ve bought way more “classic” games through the Vita alone than I own backwards compatible 360 games, and I own a lot of 360 games. The biggest issue is MS biting off more than they can chew to advertise a feature that the XBO was not designed to have in the first place so that they appear relevant by offering something unique compared to competitors (which it arguably isn’t given Nintendo’s Virtual Console, the PS1/PS2 Classics on PS4 and Vita, and even PlayStation Now). Backwards compatibility was never a plan for the Xbox One. That’s a “durr” fact. They only decided to tackle it because they were losing a concerning amount of market share to the PS4 and mobile. It comes at a great cost to Microsoft, sure. It was even deemed impossible by the engineering team at one point. Am I glad it’s a free feature? Of course. Was I excited when it was announced? Hell yes. Are they doing a good job making the games work and fixing ones that don’t? Surprisingly so. Am I happy with how they’ve decided to proceed? Obviously not. After seeing what kind of games they’ve been focusing on over the last year my enthusiasm has dwindled.
(3/3) Like I said, hooray for games like Aegis Wing and Castle Crashers. If you’re happy then good for you. As for me… big whoop. Wake me up when games that mattered for the 360 start showing up. Give me Lost Odyssey, Lost Planet, Dead Rising, Forza, Crackdown, PGR, SFIV, ME2+3, any 360 exclusive JRPG, Bayonetta… As for the comment above mine; Ubisoft has a literal butt load of games that are listed as backwards compatible. Konami and Capcom games are the biggest droughts right now. Talk about being “clueless”.
You certainly love speaking in the hypothetical and hyperbole. It's like you know there isn't someone at Microsoft already asking publishers about adding BC titles to the collection. Like publishers are somehow naive that this is a thing that exists and need either Microsoft or fans to knock on their door and beg them to add it. Nope, it's all on the fans. They need to kick down doors and beg. It's not the publishers deciding what to do. It's not companies who no longer in existence having no one to contact. It's not the laundry list of games that are getting re-released and "remastered" instead. Nope. You've got it all figured out. So screw this afterthought of a program that so many people love that Microsoft 100% did not have to do. It's also hilarious that you keep saying that it's just arcade games that are added. Just looking at the games I have ready to install (all of which I have gotten free with Games With Gold or as pre-order bonus) I am looking at Deus Ex: Human Revoltion, Just Cause 2, Dungeon Siege III, Fable 3, Fallout 3, Grid 2, Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising, Supreme Commander 2, Rainbow Six Vegas, The Witcher 2, XCOM Enemy Unknown, Borderlands, Deadspace or the games I own or bought stupid cheap LEGO Batman, LEGO Star Wars and Mass Effect. That's not even mentioning Red Dead Redemption, Call Of Duty Black Ops and the laundry list of other AAA titles that are part of the program. So yeah, it's clearly just arcade games right? So thanks for playing.
@DarthJay I never once said they were only releasing Arcade games. I said they majority of which that are released are Arcade games. Between you and I we have listed nearly half of the AAA, retail released BC games. As you may refer to the numbers I mentioned - 171 Vs 60 - I'd say my point stands. You clearly are unable to keep pace with this conversation, therefore this is where I take my leave of it. You have failed to remove yourself out of your own way and have repeatedly bleated no more than blissfully oblivious opinion. I commend you for the ravaging defense you seem to have for MS and their Xbox brand, it's folks like you that keep the flame and console wars an ever entertaining site to behold. I do understand why you think the way you do and I respect the road of thought you stumbled down to reach your viewpoint. After nearly 20 years of industry research, analysis, and recording trends in the way companies such as Microsoft conduct business - specifically in response to competitor influence - I feel I have a much broader, unbiased, and more educated opinion on this subject than yourself. You may not believe so and that is more than fine. Fortunately, my familiarity with interactions such as the one between you and I have taught me to recognize when a debate is no longer worth fueling. With confidence I say that I respect your position and agree to disagree with you. Debating with a wall of stubbornly defended misinformation bellowed from an emotional savage is no argument at all, rather it is more comparable to beating ones head against a rock. "Pick your battles" I suppose is the lesson we could each take away from this dismal interaction.
Aww isn't that cute? Throw around a bunch of adorable sentences full of self-importance and try to act like you're some sort of smarty pants because you literally got demolished. You LITERALLY said "but it's turned into nothing but ports of old "Arcade" games nobody asked for that have been on PC and countless other systems for years" and now you want to pretend you didn't. What a clown. Shocker that the companies behind the arcade games are lining up to convert with BC and the AAA companies are trying to figure out how to remaster and re-release. I mean, SHOCKER. Talk yourself up all you want broski. You're super important. We get it. Wicked smart too. Your paint by numbers one liners must have had you staring at yourself in the mirror with a boyish grin. Man, you done gotted me good dat time! I'd love to keep chatting, but I have to go savage some animals into meat sticks and wack off to Bill Gates. I'll just go ahead to agree that you ran away because you were wrong. Ta ta.
Save you all a click... Nin2-Jump, New Rally-X and Mr. Driller Online
Do you not see the tags? Thanks for saving us from the deadly click though.
Don't be a douche. lol
Battlefield Bad Company 2 PLEASE ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!
I would like the jrpg games lost odyssey, tales of vesperia please.
That's what I'm saying! Infinite Undiscovery, Resonance of Fate, Eternal Sonata... the 360 was a JRPG powerhouse. Why don't they embrace that? Especially with the lack of them this gen, ho boy.
I'd like to see FF13, FF13-2 and FF13 Lightning Returns
Haha... that's a good one.
For the love of gaming Mass Effect 2!!
If they would announce Vesperia for BC, I would buy an Xbox One. I've been wanting to play that game for a really long time and I think that would be the final thing that pushed me to buy an X1.
Ghost Recon advanced warfighter 2 please
Where the hell is Lost Odyssey?
MGS Collection and Max Payne 3 please. Also Splinter Cell blacklist and Ghost Recon FS.
I'm loving all these JRPG fans here commenting. The 360 was a monster for JRPGs and yet there's nothin for us in the BC list. THOSE are the games they gotta work on, especially the ones you can't play on PC like Eternal Sonata and Lost Odyssey.
Another pathetic group of additions to Xbox BC.... Where are the big games Major Nelson? And don't throw up RDR. Great you got one big one in the last 4 months.
those are actually games? when is Splinter Cell Conviction/ Blacklist going to be added? how about mafia 2? how about crysis 2 or 3? how about far cry 1 or 2 or 3? how about the older Assassin's Creed games? how about the older Need for speed titles? oh, no " we evaluate based n feedback wherein we supply all of the choices, and force the feedback to be what we want it to be" right?
It's up to the publisher ms can only facilitate things but it's up to the publishers. As for your above comment about shaming the publishers into adding games, you don't throw your business partners under the bus. That's a quick way to get nothing from them.
they don't need to mention names. they simply would make formal statement, something like " we are trying to add new games, but the decision is ultimately up to the publishers to decide which games are added." HOW HARD IS THAT?
" we are trying to add new games, but the decision is ultimately up to the publishers to decide which games are added." That's the official line man.
Oh good, more games few want....
The BC has been great but I was hoping for more games to make the conversion faster.
Surely people only needed to look at BC on the 360 to realise it was always going to be an empty feature. It was hyped up to the same lvl when got my launch 360 but it was a feature that never lived upto the hype just like x1 BC. Luckily the 360 was an amazing console so didn't really need BC anyway.
So you dont have to open the article - Nin2-Jump - New Rally-X - Mr. Driller Online
thank you sir.
Lost Odyssey or I never turn on my xbox again. that'll show me.
Anyone else holding on for Skate 3?
