I know I've seen people buying some small stacks of 360 games.

This is a win, win, win situation.

1. X1 owners get access to 360 games they may have wanted to play but never got around to playing.

2. Publishers sell more 360 games.

3. Bargin hunters can get deals on used 360 games for their X1.

Yes, great for everyone involved.

Also Gamestop will make a killing on 360 games.

So how do you make the connection that it is BC that is boosting sale?

LOL. Straw grasp argument.

"LOL. Straw grasp argument."

There is no such thing, but good job on making up one.

I believe your argument is a "grasp argument straw". :D

I've been playing quite a few on my X1 and I am enjoying them once again...please activision please give access to CoD 2, World at War and MW. I really want to be able to just remove my 360 from my living room.

Microsoft listened and the fans are loving it!!

It's not a crazy theory...

But when you look at the games that were sold well, it looks more like the demographic is more family friendly. Which always benefits the previous gen
