Looking forward to playing Counter Strike GO and Witcher 2!

Was hoping for more titles though. Hopefully, publishers are just testing to make sure titles work then are going to approve a bunch!

Gazondaily2811d ago

Oh snap CS: GO! Nice! And Witcher 2. Well I'm playing Witcher 3 atm but will go back to 2 eventually.

What's wrong X1 cpu emulation draw call?! Ain't Draw Call the pinnacle of DX12?

Wow loving the 360 BC on Xbox One and really loving all this amazing variety the Xbox One is getting. Xbox One has the far superior selection of games in both variety AND top notch quality. Microsoft's support for gamers is truly unmatched! Can't wait to play Counter Strike and Witcher 2 on the best console this generation. :D

Lol. Please stop. My god.

Xbox One is the only console of two main competing consoles that have classic Sonic (or any Sonic game at all), Borderlands 1, Fallout 3, Mass Effect 1, Assassin's Creed II, Witcher 2, Deus Ex, Counter Strike GO, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, Mirror's Edge, Just Cause 2, Rayman 3 HD, etc. etc. etc.

The variety is unmatched on the Xbox One. This is the power of backward compatibility. The power of Microsoft's unmatched support for their fans. The power of the X!

I don't know about "unmatched", the Wii U does BC better. It's great to have some BC on the X1 though.

gangsta_red2811d ago

I really do hope they continue to give out more 360 titles for the Xbox One. I love it too, it's always a surprise to go to the games and app section and see a new list of games pop up that are ready to DL.


All I'm reading from the replies are, "Stop praising the Xbox One!".

I wonder if the praise and victory marches I read in every sales article would be considered embarrassing too?

kraenk122811d ago

Oh my god I'm crying..are you for real?!

LastcenuryRob2810d ago

Watch out magicandude...PS4 players don't have much to play so they look for X1 articles to troll on.

SUCKxITxEZ2810d ago (Edited 2810d ago )

@monster_tard sure the wiiu can play more games from its precursor, but there's not even half the amount of games on Wii worth playing compared to the 360 bc list. I know, I've owned them all and still own a wiiu and one. But if your talking about the way its handled, yes running games on the old hardware is always better than software emulation, but it's harder to shove a 360 into a one than it is a crappy wii into a wiiu.

Monster_Tard2810d ago

I meant it does it better by allowing you to play all games from it's predecessor instead of only a fraction of them and I agree it probably was easier for Nintendo to get Wii games to play on the Wii U, both Wii & Wii U use PowerPC, while the 360 & X1 don't share the same architecture.

while i respect your opinion what about those of us who have no interest in playing last gen games. This is what i really don't get, towards the end of last gen we all wanted ps4 and next xbox right? now wait for it

reasoning being the games weren't pushed as much and we needed better looking games

so now why all of the sudden those last gen games are so appealing once more?

here is the actual reason without any sugarcoating or fanboy crap:

it's because xbox one has BC and ps4 doesn't. if both consoles had it this feature would not meaning as much or at all

whenever a game or feature is exclusive to one console, it becomes the best thing ever

Pogmathoin2810d ago (Edited 2810d ago )

Oh please guys, if this was Sony, you lot would be acting worse..... Get over it. MS nailed this part...

Embarrassing is watching you defend Sony making you pay over and over again for the games you own...

nogoodusernamesleft2810d ago

counter strike go bc on xbox one!?!?!? xbox one gets the love. witcher 2 is on this list too. loving this update keep up the amazing work ms

ShottyatLaw2810d ago (Edited 2810d ago )

Publishers may be waiting for the unified storefront, too.

It's great for titles we already own. Publishers may be more enticed with seeing digital versions of these 360 titles available for purchase to new buyers right there on the X1 store. I think places like Gamestop are benefiting the most from BC right now.

Apart from Witcher, the list isn't up to much. Infact i don't even know many of those titles.

Christopher2811d ago

How can you not know Space Giraffe! It's the arcade version of The Last of Us! I can't even... /s

cfc832811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

I just youtubed that game. It must be for people on acid. Now we totally know what you have done some weekends.

Im still waiting for Black Ops. This is ridiculous. Nice to see The Witcher 2 for free though.

KiwiViper852810d ago

Not in my neck of the woods. Sad face

conanlifts2810d ago

Yeah the games i have been waiting for since day 1 are the bioshock ones. Hopefully next month.

KilKarazy2810d ago

I can say with about 95% certainty that Activision probably gave them the okay to do it on the condition they wouldn't release it within a certain window to avoid hurting BLOPS 3 sales. I think the earliest we will see it is march.

Khaotic2810d ago

Call activision and complain cause its their decision.

Where Is Red Dead Redemption and Nier!?

roostermoans2811d ago

Rockstar have refused to let them use their games for backwards compatibility. Hopefully this means we'll get remasters instead? Hope hope.

Trekster_Gamer2811d ago

F Rockstar! I bought Red Dead Redemption I loved it on the 360 and I should be able to play the game on my xbox one!!
