Backwards compatibility is starting to blow up. I bet publishers are seeing increased sales from older titles.

curtis922761d ago

They barely see sales on new XBO games, though.

annoyedgamer2761d ago

lame..no Black Ops 1

Deus Ex HR was always on there this is just the Directors Cut.

Femto2761d ago

The directors cut is much better, has many differences from the original. And mankind divided is coming out soon so this is a perfect time

ScorpiusX2761d ago

Activision may be re-mastering for release with its next COD game after infinite war .............

gangsta_red2761d ago

All these small games and still no Sonic All Star Racing...

Anyone underwhelmed about BC titles lately have to understand that MS is probably waiting for BC blowout during their E3 press conference. Black Ops, Bioshock and other big titles have already been confirmed for BC at some point. Read Dead and other long rumored. I'll be very surprised if we don't see many of the most requested BC games announced at E3.


Two more Xbox 360 titles spotted on Microsoft Store with backwards compatibility IDs

We recently came across some strange store activity that could suggest Microsoft is making more games backwards compatible. Now, we've spotted another two Xbox 360 titles on the Microsoft Store with the backwards compatible ID.

I hope to see the Timesplitters series get added to the current backwards compatibility catalogue. Goldeneye -Esque shooters aren’t made anymore.

Sheppard7t3768d ago

I loved those games so much back in the day.

Knightofelemia768d ago (Edited 768d ago )

Silent Hill 2 and 4 would be better titles to add to the BC list the a then Are You Smarter then a 5th Grader First Templar I have never heard of. I am not going out of my way to buy these two titles kind of lazy to add these two titles when all Microsoft has to do is bang on Konami's door to add SH2 and 4. Downpour and Homecoming work so why not add 2 and 4 to the list.

BehindTheRows768d ago

Because 2 & 4 were only available in the HD Collection for the 360.

MissAubrey768d ago (Edited 768d ago )

You mean 2&3 are in the HD collection.. Silent Hill 4 the Room was only on the OG Xbox, pc and ps2. But is currently playable thru BC on the xbox 360, not xbox one

BehindTheRows768d ago (Edited 768d ago )


Yes, I’m aware (I own every Silent Hill game released - yes, all, the PS1 original all the way down to the PC, Xbox, and Wii releases, and am emulating the first on PC). I know what’s what. I simply couldn’t change the typo nor finish the edit since N4G’s option expires.

Regardless, 4 was never an Xbox 360 game, and therefore, BC can’t exist in the way he’s requesting for it.

Knightofelemia768d ago (Edited 768d ago )


SH2 and SH3 are on the HD Collection and yes BC can work with the OG Xbox on Xbox 1, Series X/S Microsoft has all ready added some OG Xbox games to the list of BC games. Microsoft even announced that some OG Xbox games will work on newer Xbox systems at E3.

Knightofelemia768d ago (Edited 768d ago )


SH2 on the HD Collection is a poor mans copy it's way different from the PS2 and OG Xbox port so is SH3 in the HD Collection is way different then its PS2 cousin.

BehindTheRows768d ago (Edited 768d ago )


I never said you DID say that. I was talking about him.

BehindTheRows768d ago (Edited 768d ago )

Uh, yes I know (like I already said, it was a typo). You asked about 2 (already BC in the HD Collection) and 4, which ISN’T on the 360, unlike 3, Downpour, and Homecoming.

If you’re speaking about Xbox BC, in general, then that’s different and 4 (from the original Xbox) will most likely be added one day. Your other option is to maybe grab a PC and a copy or emulate the PS2 version with said PC.

MissAubrey768d ago (Edited 768d ago )

I said SH4 was playable on the 360 thru OG xbox backwards compatibility. "playable on 360" not playable on Xbone/Series.

BehindTheRows768d ago

Yeah, the HD Collection wasn’t very good, but that’s besides the point. :P

I remember first Templar...I didn't play it....it was garbage..😂

It's too bad we have OG titles like Deathrow and others that haven't been made compatible yet. MS has made a great effort bringing over the majority of their library but 1st gen XBOX titles have fallen through the cracks.

SirBruce768d ago

The First Templar and Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?

MissAubrey768d ago

the moral of the story here folks is they brought bc back! yes these titles suck but atleast we know now they are back at it again after alittle hiatus!
