New games are always welcome but still waiting, for reasons unknown, on the Microsoft published Ninja Gaiden 2.

The consent of IP holders appears to be needed for Microsoft to make games backwards compatible.

Skull52160d ago (Edited 60d ago )

That could be. There was a Major Nelson post a while back in which he stated if you want games to be BC you need to contact and ask the publisher. Unfortunately I can't find any contact information for Microsoft Studios in able to request NG2. First NG is BC so I'm not sure what the problem is, then again maybe it is coming.

Sciurus_vulgaris60d ago

Microsoft doesn’t own the Ninja Gaiden IP.

Keep on adding more games to bc MS!

I love that game bought it for xbox360 ps3 and ps vita

That is up to Tecmo, not MS? There must be some licensing issue.

Movefasta199360d ago

didnt stop them from getting ngblack BC

hiawa2360d ago (Edited 60d ago )

And for those bringing up NGBlack, well, again, Tecmo had to approve that, not MS. Other than a dev just not wanting to make their games available it is usually a license issue keeping games off of BC, not MS.

LMAO same, always NG2 and pgr4.

I would rather they released 4K patches for Unpatched Xbox One games rather than last gen games

Kavorklestein60d ago

MS is the one to ask for BC, The reworking of code for 4k patches is done by the actual devs...
Try begging your fave devs to do this, as MS has little to do with the 4k Patches for Current gen games.

Hence, why Battlefield 1's patch took so damn long.

hiawa2360d ago

It seems they can do both. I am fine with what they are doing as I play more OG Xbox and 360 games than I do this gen games.
