Three new titles are being added to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library today.
Finally .Great job BC team. So glad I kept my copy all this while and Toy Story 3? Nice
I just bought mine a while ago thinking that Microsoft will make it BC My soul is ready
Could you kindly let me know if the framerate is better and has the screen tearing been eliminated? I might get an Xbox One Slim for this, or maybe Scorpio would work even better next year... Thanks!
Xbox gamers have been asking for this exclusive ever since BC was announced last year, so great day. Getting mine! I just hope they see just how much it's user base wanted thos game and makes a sequel for the xbo...the xbo is in dire need on an rpg like this.
Multi-disk in action.
Won't need to do that after the game is installed. You'll just install the whole game to the HDD and play. No disc swap needed anymore.
Sorry I wasn't clear. I was pointing out that we are now getting the multi-disk games that were previously not being converted.
Great. Thanks to all of these great backwards compatibility additions, the Xbox One is finally almost as good as the Xbox 360! Bravo!
Still have my copy, MS continues to impress.
Never played this game, but the constant praise it gets has me interested. I will finally get a chance, considering I sold my 360 to buy Xbox one, and if not for BC I wouldn't have bothered pursuing it. Thanks Microsoft. However, I think it is a missed opportunity to not have it included in this months gwg, it would have made this months offerings infinitely better...
The game can be bought for less than a pint of beer these days, if you're a JRPG fan, it's a must play.. closest thing to a proper FF game last generation, definitely more so than corridor fantasy 13 anyway.
It's been dirt cheap for a good while now but if it follows the pricing trend of other BC games the price is going to go up now that it's able to be played on the XBO. Depending on demand it could go up quite a bit (if you want a physical copy).
It's a great game, definitely one of the better rpgs of last gen
This game deserves to be on the BC list....a true gem in the 360 lineup. Lets hope they add Tales of Vesperia to the list as well.
Had it, played it, beat it... and will probably download a digital copy... Great JRPG for anyone who hasn't played it yet.
Is it available digital?
Unfortunately not right now... Hopefully it will be compatible in the near future for downloading... Come on MS get this available as a Digital Download already!
Very good rpg, i played the game and love it.
Well played BC team, I feel like Lost Odyssey saved the day where FF13 left us really disappointed.
Already installed. The better news is all 4 disc are combined into a single 22gig download. So no disc swap require and only disc one is needed in the disc drive. This is the best BC for me. This is opening of the flood gate as beside LO, these are the other multi disc games that will hopefully make the jump to BC soon. Blue Dragon - 3 Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - 2 Dead Space 2 - 2 Dead Space 3 - 2 Final Fantasy XIII - 3 Forza Motorsport 3 - 2 Forza Motorsport 4 - 2 Halo 4 - 2 Infinite Undiscovery - 2 LA Noire - 3 (Complete Edition is 4 discs) The Last Remnant - 2 Mass Effect 2 - 2 Mass Effect 3 - 2 Rage - 3 Star Ocean: The Last Hope - 3
and eternal sonata ...loved that game.
So did I. It was a very charming game.
Wow, the haters and boo birds have come out in force. How can you "disagree" that someone loved a game? This place is hilarious sometimes(most of the time).
Get that "The Last Remnant" ish out of here.
I stopped playing lords of shadow on what seemed like the last level, when I returned it to video-ezy. I'm more than keen to start from the beginning again. I forgot about the dual disk bit, these days I'm finding myself increasingly digital, so will definitely opt for the digital copy. That goes for LO aswell
Halo 4 is already on the Xbox One. It's apart of the Master Chief Collection. And Blue Dragon is on its way to being backwards compatible according to Spencer.
This I big ONE. Great job Microsoft. Now all I need is Skate 3 and the hard as hell Blue Dragon.
So many great things going with Microsoft lately
I agree. They are definitely making some great moves. I just wish they had done these a lot earlier instead of upsetting the fanbase to the point where a lot have jumped ship. Listen to your fans and their loyalty and money will follow...
As a day one Xbox One owner I've been satisfied with my console from the start and the DRM reversal was listening to us fans IMO
I had mine preordered before the drm change, haha
I don't understand what all the fuss was about with Microsoft's 1st vision they were trying create a way to trade in digital licenses and share your games and always, lets be honest who plays offline. I like everything they are doing if they can bring more PC games over to the box that would be the icing on the cake.
Best jrpg of last gen imo.one of the few games i wished was multiplat so it would sell more and bring in future titles in that world.But nonetheless,it is a masterpiece to me. https://www.youtube.com/wat... ahhhh that nostalgia :(
Xenoblade chronicles was the best.
I never had a wii so i missed that.
If you only had xbox maybe, because ps and wii had better JRPGs and will always have. Xbox is not a place for JRPGs and nevel will be.
It definitely isn't , overall the ps 3 had way better jrpgs .but lost od was the best to me followed by demon souls and Valkyria .
Other than Tales(Graces f and Xilia), what other PS3 JRPGs are worth my time. I never really looked it up. I did play Trusty Bell and Enchanted Amrs though.
Tales of Vesperia would like a word with you.
Time to go hunt this game down
I haven't had the chance to play this game so I'm sure going to pick it up now! :)
Nice! I really hope they release Bad Company 2 after Battlefield 1 has been out a couple months...
That and Castlevania LoS are literally all I'm waiting on!
Nice, I actually bought a 360 to play this last month. I was worried that maybe one of the discs where scratch and getting stuck, so being BC helps!
Cool that the Xbox team gave the fans what they wanted.
Now, this is a great game! Great soundtrack, great gameplay, graphics and story. Topnotch!
Good job. Now MS needs to try to make that Japanese game push next e3. I just mean get rid of the Japanese exclusivity that Sony has.....i dont like exclusivity. And I already have a pc that's getting the majority of Japanese games anyway. The danganronpas recently came out on pc too. Hoping Persona makes its way besides it being on emulators.
Oh God no. Microsoft needs to forget all about Japanese games, it is a dead genre.
japanese games is not a genre.
I agree. If you like Japanese games, you already own ps or Nintendo. Microsoft is a western company, for western people. As racist or xenophobic that sounds, we all know it's the truth.
Nope, MS need to stay away from japanese games.
They tried that. They should just focus where their market is strongest. Japan just isn't the hotbed of gaming like it used to be. Over there the PS4 is just now catching up to the Wii U. At this point it's just not worth the money.
isn't the wii u a year older? and aren't there still dozens of big japanese games to care about? sounds like you're just making excuses.
@Redrenegade What am I making excuses for exactly? Did you read and comprehend before you commented? Japan once one of the largest game markets in the world has been overcome by mobile mania. The ps4 is selling slower there then any of its previous incarnations. Much Slower then it is in the us and uk. These are facts so what is this excuse I've made and what is it for exactly. If it's somehow about Xbox I wasn't even talking about that. Xbox has been a non starter in Japan since the word 3 failed attempts. Japan doesn't want it. No excuses needed.
But will they have fixed the load times?
It was a joke, homie, chill. Sheesh, I would sit through trump taking a dump between screens in this game to play it.
The load times were significantly better when played off the hard drive.
I want to see Xbox games become BC soon. Getting to play KOTOR, KOTOR2, X-Men Legends, Jet Set Radio Future, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Crimson Skies, Morrowwind and Jade Empire again would be great. I understand the chance of playing Xbox game disks isn't going to happen, but being able to download these Xbox games would be awesome.
Oh God, YES! This news gives me enough joy to temporarily ease the pain of my ulcer (I see the doctor tomorrow).
Hang in there
As far as I am concerned Lost Odyssey was the best story in any game I have ever played.
GG the hypocrisy on display here, so xbox fanboys love JRPGs now too eh? But I thought JRPGs are niche, none cares about JRPGs etc etc.
lost odyssey is great, but you're right. they ignore them on ps4, but this game is all praise.
They ignore all the games that are on ps4 and praise every game on their system even if it's shit. The very definition of hypocrites. Just look at the circle-jerking over lost odyssey, a niche JRPG, if this would have been ps4 exclusives, these guys would have been shitting on it.
Man you guys try way to hard. Why are you even in this thread? There are millions of different fans on each console. You can't just generalize an entire group as one. It's just silly and childish. The ones in this thread are the type that like a JRPG like Lost Oddyssey. Granted on the Xbox these don't do as well as they should but that doesn't mean ALL people who play Xbox don't like JRPG's. Why are you so upset about it? Why do you have to go out of your way to try and be a wet blanket on an otherwise positive thread. Well it's because you and people like you are just insecure. The realest gamers play everywhere and anywhere the good games are. Take that fanboy bs somewhere else. The people your talking about are not in this thread.
Most of them are too weird for me but Lost Odyssey and Final Fantasy are good games
