ThisGenGaming says "Many people complained about its inclusion, but it's hard to complain that it isn't one of the best running games on the BC service to date. Here's a comparison look."
I'm still baffled by their backwards compatibility decisions
One game out of 350+? It's bothering you that much huh?
bothering? no laughing and confused? yes let them waste more time with backwards compatibility and less exclusives and hopefully they'll keep losing market share
@trumpwonstopcrying - both PS4 and XB1 have 16 exclusives in their current top 100 games sold. And XB1 has a 1.09 attach rate on those exclusives while PS4 has a 0.79 attach rate. Tell me again about XB1 having an exclusive issue. PS4 for sure is winning the world numbers on console sold but exclusives for sure have not been the reason for it simply by looking at the numbers.
Genuinely curious as to what you're baffled about?
The games available on Xbox one anyway..... That's what is baffling.
@extermin8or So? The point is not to resell games, it's to make as many games backwards compatible as possible. It's redundant sure, but doesn't hurt that it's there. Not like you're being charged.
i disagree but i love your name. lol.
Agreed, where the heck is MW2/MW3 ?? Waiting forever for those :/
Worst multiplay in the series and a game that ended on a cliffhanger that the opted not to do a follow up for. Great idea.
but COD:Ghost is already on Xbox One. Why would you make a game that is already on the system BC? If you want to do something right, make MW2 and/or MW3 BC.....
Making MW2 or MW3 BC has nothing to do with Ghosts. They don't just decide it and it magically happens. I'm sure they're pushing for MW2 and MW3, but it's activision's decision to allow the licensing. It's very likely that MS applied to get BC licenses for all COD games on xbox 360, and activision has only approved certain ones, for whatever reason.
I wouldnt be surprised with an MW2 remaster for IW's next release...that alone would deter them from greenlighting it. By then how many will upgrade if it's already available vs. what crap they did with Infinite. It's all about the $$$
@ApexWolf22 Exactly. They know no one cares about Ghosts so they approved it without a problem. MW2 will be a money maker so perhaps that's why they're holding off on it.
They won't as they are clearly have mw2 and mw3 remasters planned at some point in near future.
So there is now 1080p COD Ghosts on Xbone now perhaps?
Correct me if I'm mistaken, but doesn't the game run at the same resolution as it would on the original xbox 360? Meaning around 600p, upscaled to whatever the xbox one output resolution is, 720p or 1080p? The only difference is the framerate is higher and vsync is always on. Which would mean even the Xbox One version of ghosts was upscaled 1080p as well in the end, so there was always a 1080p ghosts on the system, just not native like the ps4...
For those who own it digitally I suppose, Ghosts came out at the same time as the PS4\X1. Many people didn't immediately go next-gen so I could see why it might be relevant. I just wish they'd added the Borderlands GoTY Dlc disc to that list...
Sounds like the BC version plays better than the X1 version though. Anyhow, it's cool they did it I guess. Doesn't take anything away from anyone or anything else. Not sure how many people are still playing this game online though.
Shame that COD:Ghosts was arguably the worst COD of all time. (So bad, that the had a upgrade program from one gen to the next, so not to lose payers)
Try Red Dead Redemption multiplayer on backwards compatibility if you want a showcase.
Ffs, now were are praising BC games, that already exist on the console? Even if you're the biggest fan of BC, you have to be scratching your head wondering why.
Well, have you considered that perhaps PPL love past games? Crash Bandicoot. Final Fantasy 12. Shadow of Colossus. The Snes mini.
I don't think you get it @Petebloodyonion. He is saying what's the point of a game being backwards compatible when the game itself already exist on the console itself in it's original form smh
Yeah he meant there's what's the point of this game being BC if COD:ghosts is already on xbox one
They add ghosts when the xb1 version is better and anyone who has the xb1 would get that version instead and they have yet to add crackdown 1 and 2 as well as many other better games.....I'm really wondering what the thought process or lack of is behind their pitiful choices.
I assume crack down will come about 3s release
I really hope so bro cuz I'm dying to play them and have both like brand new sitting in their respective cases waiting to be played again on my xb1.
It'll likely be a Bonus like they did with Quantum Break, Rainbow Six, Just Cause 3, Fallout 4, Gears 4...
What about people who bought the 360 version already and just upgraded
Awesome, can't wait till Destiny and GTA V become backwards compatible too.
Ha... good one
What's so funny?
It's funny, because you can already get those games on the system without backwards compatible in it's original form smh lol
I think is it was sarcasm bro, lol...
what an utterly pointless endeavour on so many levels this was. smh
Of course it is a showcase. For the first time Xbone users get to play COD Ghosts at 1080p lol.
Nice trolling, but you're off. This is the xbox 360 version and is still 600p upscaled to 1080p, and the ghosts xbox one version was 720p upscaled to 1080p.
The worst COD every huh smh
But it's already on xbox one for under $10
I feel like if somebody still had their 360 disc for this and had enough money to buy an Xbox One, they'd go ahead and just upgrade the game itself and buy the X1 version lol. Whatever. Guess it's good for convenience's sake...
Ha, that's funny, literally just installed ghosts (360) last nignt.
