It is definitely a great feature.
lol I like how the best feature of a XONE is playing 360 games....
You sure its the "best feature"?
What does that really say about MS this gen?
I have to play Dragons Dogma DA on 360 until it becomes available on Xbone.
Interesting Black Ops 2 managed to be a top 10 selling game in April, despite be over 4 years old ( http://m.ca.ign.com/article... ). Publishers should allow all their 360 games to be playable on XB1
Specially now when theres absolutely no new exclusives on xbox to compete with!
Yes exclusives mean everything. Despite the fact that most of the best selling games on XB1 and PS4 are multiplats. I also bet you consider games like No Man's Sky, Street Fighter V, and Nier Automata exclusive games, despite them being available on PC.
When does backwards compatibility ever need its worth needing to be proven
Not every game is black ops 2 tho. BC is only worth it for a few titles. Having the ability to play them is cool but the small list of titles that make it worth it don't really make it a necessary feature.
When you say things like that, you have to take a step back and realize that, if you found a few worth while, then there are millions of people who have different taste than yours and each have a few they like and would never touch the ones you choose.
The thing about BC, is that it lets you play games you already own or might have missed on your new system. It is not to get you to like old games over new games or any of that craziness detractors from the other system like to present as something smart.
You said it man. I was one of the folks that bought I would never use BC, but now that Zo have it I use it ALL the time. I didn't realize how many good 360 games I missed, and they are so cheap now!! I just got Rage for $5, Ghostbusters for $3, Alice the madness returns for $3, and I could go on and on. There are tons of good 360 games that are worth playing. A lot of the games I'm enjoying the most are smaller titles too, like lumines, puzzle quest, carcasonne etc. there is literally no downside to having BC as an option IMO.
Must be the draught of genuine x1 games then. Atleast there is the feeling of somekind of exclusive thing when the other 2 don't offer bc. Nah just joking! Or not?
Competing with what? On Xbox? Not much.
There are over 1000 games on XB1🤔
Leave him he's just upset he has nothing to play
That is not true because many of them have not released and dont even have a release date. In addition some of those are even going to be cancelled
Disagree all you want but this is the truth
Competing with your salty tears is more then enough
@zack oh so ps owners haven't been bragging about ratchet and clank and begging Sony to bring back old games 😂😂 I have spent much more time on my xbox one this gen for a reason. More and better games that aren't done in a day or two. Keep waiting for greatness though lol
more like xbox one owners have no xbox one games to play so they have to play last generations games on a new generation console
wow epicbuffet you are really a delusional one aren't ya? a buffet is better than an xbox one at this point.
Old games? Where have you been?
Hahaha zack bro stop crying I know you're sad but it's ok. Be good enough and mummy and daddy will buy you one I promise ☺️
Buffet got owned lol
xbox has plenty of games they mad cause all there shit is one and done and they have to pay for bc 😅😅😅
for someone who never played black ops 2 like me, this is good if i ever wanted to try it out...not to mention that with the recent backwards sale (amazon has one too now) there are quite a few games that i will be picking up.
Actually it proves the games worth.
Exactly. People are hungry for a good boots on the ground CoD. The reception to CoD WW2 proves that.
All it shows is the power of the individual games' presence. A lot of people like Black Ops 2, but not a lot of people like Dark Void. I can't say for anyone but myself but, a lot of games released on BC aren't really good. There's a few here and there but the vast majority are just games that people don't care about. I also wonder why games that are only on 360 aren't on BC already; barely any of the first party games are.
It always makes me laugh when ppl are writing: There must be nothing to play on Xone when Bops2 actually compete with Infi warfare and Titanfall2. Perhaps it's because Bops2 is for some a better game compares to newest one. (fun fact the game is still sold at high price Ebgames).
It was around $20 before BC and only rose $5-$10. You can get the blops 1/2 combo pack for the same price.
Doesn't this prove the Black Ops 2 worth?
Who said backwards compatibility was worthless to Microsoft or XB1 owners? Source/Proof?
Sony fanboys thats who been saying that and still do
*You listen to fanboys?
Wtf you mean Source /Proof/Link? read the the dam comments whenever theres news about backsward compatible games on xboxone for yourself and see how many sony fanboys make comments saying why have a xboxone to play old game and MS just doing this cause xboxone haves no games
Still no Source/Proof/link. Should be easy to find since you said "whenever theres news about backwards compatibility"
The burden of proof is on you since you made the claim.
Why are you repeating what fanboys say? Fanboys = minority
What are the non-fanboys saying?
I told you what to do im not gonna copy and paste what haters and fanboys said dont keep asking me about poof,link,source
Or maybe it just shows that when people want new games they will buy them, even if they have to buy new old games cause there are no new new games!
