Xbox Live group marketing manager Aaron Greenberg fills in the blanks on the plan to make last-gen's best and brightest downloadable on Xbox 360.
dam no online for halo, no acheivements, cant chat or even have access to ur profile.
but ALL third party publishers are involved, capcom sega konami all there old classics could make there way other.
Games will be exactly the same as the retail versions, so Halo will have multiplayer.
EDIT: Hey F@GGOT who disagreed, learn to read.
To all the reasons my roommate would have for rebuying the classic titles guess its only for those who havent played them before. Well its still cool an interesting step in digital distribution tech. ALthough i doubt many publishers would be interested in revamping their games for this new service as of now maybee if its really sucessfull..
this was kind of obvious... this service will be similar to the wii as far as the wii... game will be what it was...
There will be no difference between Buy Original Xbox game on disk and run it on the Xbox 360 or download it.
I think this service will probably open doors to 3rd party developers that would like to upgrade an existing game to have achivements, etc.. but would like to distribute it via digital distribution.
Actually there is.
THese games will be emulated so there is a chance of some games running shoddy. The Reason the Wii has so much content is because all of the games are easy to emulate and low on memory.
Remember Xbox games are on DVDs which some take over 5 gigs on the disc for. Good idea though but I doubt many 3rd party developers will jump at the idea since all of the games have to be emulated on a individual basis taking up resources.
I hope capcom brings back Marvel vs capcom 2, do you know how hard that game is to find!!
not that hard i find it everyday when i look at my collection.
Oh now looking for Eternal darkness for the GC is impossible...
I have eternal Darkness for GC. How much ? :)
ok... this just killed it for me... so lame...you can buy the hard copies of these games, that are worth something, and are portable for a lower price. 19 bucks is too much money (cant buy 1200 point chuncks)
I agree they should go for 10 at most and some of the titles are gimped of features.
no achievements?, this would be the 1st time this has ever happened that I know of, from a downloaded game.
They let STREETS OF RAGE have online co-op, last I checked when I played SOR in college it wasnt online co-op, it was co-op but not online. Its a stretch from what was said, but could this happen with HALO:CE.
They need to find a way to put achievements in HALO:CE.
No Achievements! Ugh! I guess I won't be buying original Xbox games over live.
i think this is a great addition.Achievements or no achievements,online or no online i still think its great.There are so many games from the last generation that i missed and with time will like to play some.Would so love to play Jet Set Radio again.
I applaud Microsoft for at least giving us the choice.because i think that is one of the most important things you can give a gamer.
I might get Fable because I never played it before.
Now if they added achievements to those games I bet sales for those downloadable Xbox games would go through the roof. But I can only hope.
Well, at least they are being honest with us. Sure, on one hand, we won't be getting any added functionality with any games. But, on the other hand, it will give people a chance to play older games they may have missed. I think 1200 MS points is way too much for many games though, especially in Canada where Microsoft has yet to adjust their pricing for us (our dollar is at around $1.08 USD, yet we pay $15.75 CDN for 1000 points, give me a break). I won't be buying any of these games until that happens.
hmm is psychonauts B/C i would rather have a hardcopy on a disc if its B/C. Psychonauts, bards Tale. and armed And Dangerous...
Gamer is exstatic to finally be able to, for a small fee, FINALLY be able to play his old XBOX games on the 360.... a joyous day for all...
... until he realizes... he's paying for a lot of games... that are sitting on the shelf... behind him... that he can't play on his 360... unless he kicks out a little more money...
They should pay for emulation programs or something...
