“After releasing 136 Xbox 360, 13 Original Xbox & 7 enhanced Xbox 360 titles in 2017, the Xbox One Backward Compatibility team is taking some time off for the holidays. Releases resume after New Year. Thank you for all of your support this year!
That team deserves a break
You are human too, take a break you deserve it.
Thanks for the BC games thus far take your well deserved break
Start 2018 BC with Ninja Gaiden 2, Vanquish, Ninja Blade, Binary Domain, John Woo Stranglehold and Max Payne 3.
Who the hell disagree'd you? LOL. Thats an impressive number of BC games. Great team.
I want all of these.
Enjoy that break and come back with a full list of games to make BC. I'd recommend Blinx, Stubbs, Quantum Redshift, JSRF, Otogi, Outrun 2, Gunvalkyrie.....
VERY VERY happy with BC so far. This is the only reason my Xbox is tied with my Switch for time played, and that's only because of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Until that came out, I didn't really touch my Switch after I finished Mario. Can't wait for more BC games! Thank you BC team, and Merry Christmas, happy New Year.
I am dying to play the Ninja Gaiden games again. We need NG2 + NG Razor's Edge and even NGZ!
Happy holidays to the BC team. Now crack a whip for the team building new IPs at Xbox HQ.
@Septic "Now crack a whip for the team building new IPs at Xbox HQ." Unnecessary comment. Just because they´re quiet doesn´t mean that they´re doing nothing. This is Phil Spencer who doesn´t want to reveal games to early anymore. Besides, nobody likes rushed/incompleted games.
I'm not saying they aren't doing anything. Just saying they should crack on because the Xbox is overdue on its delivery on that front.
@Septic "I'm not saying they aren't doing anything. Just saying they should crack on because the Xbox is overdue on its delivery on that front." I understand your frustation, but, i think they (MS first party studios) are well aware of that and don´t need the extra pressure from MS suits.
So you want the BC team to make a new IP. A bad idea overall but that's assuming they do have are our team and a writer that is capable of doing a game . so I don't know. They definitely have the technical ability
That's not what he said. Maybe you should read his comment again
The article is about the BC team taking a break. Nothing wrong with trolling M$ if you need new exlusives so badly, but that would be off topic and inappropriate here.
That's not even what he said..
I agree with Septic. MS has knocked the ball out of the park with correcting the wrongs of the vanilla Xbox One with the S and X versions. They have killed it with features and accessibility but now it's time for MS to devote that same attention to some new IPs. And not just new IPs but exciting ones that are greatly anticipated.
Are you guys allergic to news IPs?
New bold IPs that get people excited not just curious.
So by "cracking the whip", you are implying that they are slaves? Pretty racist and insensitive, if you ask me!
Did someone mention cracking a whip? Giggity 😃😂
I hope they get some great games out next year like NFS MW 2005, Burnout Revenge, Crackdown 1 and 2, Lost Planet 1 and 2, COD MW 2 and 3 to name a few.
Lost planet 2 is such a fun game, very underrated
Aw c'mon, panzer Dragoon for Christmas please...
The majority of backwards compatible titles announced are obscure games anyway.
Well it's true. They're not exactly announcing the most wanted titles every week are they?
you got point there i been hoping sonic generation,max payne 3, come to backwards compatible for months but they do have some have good backwards compatible games over time like tomb raider underworld,dead space 123,GTA4,RDR,metal gear rising, plus its like its up to microsoft which games become backwards compatible
I've just gotten rid of my One-s was a great unit but had far too many BC games, My front room was getting overloaded. It's a brilliant program to have on a console if I had the time and space I'd have kept it
Wait...so if it didn’t have BC you would’ve kept it?
And I thought this site couldnt get any stranger 😂 Well said
They deserve a well earned break. Great job so far!
Take a well deserved break... Come back in 2018 with Project Zero OG BC. Thank you.
Microsoft, probably realized that only less than 1% of the Xbone population plays and cherish the BC features that the Xbone has. Most gamers would rather play current games on their consoles. Old games are cool, but I just don't the luxury to spend another 60 to 100 hrs to play old games again.
well dont nobody making you
Never happen, but just NFL 2K5 please...
This with online support
I think that’s on the 360. So it is doable,,,
Thank you!! Looking forward to adding more to my library next year!
Enjoy the holidays!
Can someone please update panzer dragoon👍
So no more this year or are they gonna go out with a bang instead of a wimper ?
Awesome 👏 you deserve it
Brute force game and i may buy an xbox
Really? That game was awful haha
Pfft that game was awesome.
well done with the releases !
They deserve it. Thank you!
Nice work BC team you've done more than enough for a year take a well earned break.
Is this team considered a Microsoft 1st party studio?
