ThisGenGaming says "Copies of the Xbox 360 version of Call Of Duty Black Ops have exploded, and are causing by far the biggest increase in used sales for a new backwards compatibility game"
Why? They are only going to run into people that have ruined the lobbies by hacking.
Haven't come across any hackers after playing all day... A lot of sweats though
played a little tonight on XB1. It looks and plays relatively well for an aged game. One lobby did have a hacker. He was invincible. Went 28-0. So they are out there but I played like 6 matches and he was the only one which, not bad, but still "sucks".
If there is 1 hacker you noticed, then there must be 10 more you didnt found out... not all of them are that stupid... (well they kinda are..) lol anyway.. any game with glitches or hackers is ruined and not playable... and developer should be embarrassed for not fixing this.. especially on consoles..
I guess there are benefits to backwards compatibility.
Nope. This only proves that Microsoft would rather spend their resources on backward compatibility rather than creating something new. It's sad that people buy new console to play old games rather than innovating and creating new IP. Xbox one step backward.
@ Tangenital You just proved my point that Microsoft doesn't have any line up for the next 2-3 years
@Pancit Wow stop with that nonsense. It's common knowledge they focus on what's available/coming in the present year and the next year rather than announcing games that come out 2+ years later and having people wait for em.
Giving both = step back? Lol you're not use to being spoiled i see. Good luck with the streaming 😂
Why are you PS fanboys such haters for BC? Is it because Sony doesn't have it? Lol and this is coming from a person that only owns Playstation consoles.
pancit sheeh you talking logic on n4g we all couldn't wait to buy next gen consoles because we were tired of long last gen. but what do we have here. people want to play last gen games on next gen consoles gamer logic
@ lastking95, how is that cloud working for you over 2 1/2 years into this gen? I know on PSN streaming is working great especially the Ps4 to other devices that aren't even built for AAA gaming. PS Now is only getting better and better as well with plenty more to come.
Lol. As if Microsoft doesn't have several different teams/divisions working on different things at all times...
@pancit and showtimefolks, Man, I thought Not having BC on PS4 wasn't a big issue...but we were wrong as it is a big enough threat for you two and others that have similiar cause against Xbox One to keep commenting every time new BC games are announced. Like the famous saying "Those that are the loudest in their threats are the weakest" Keep commenting guys, very entertaining. :)
And how do your respond to the Uncharted Collection, The Last of Us remake, and streaming ps2 and ps3 games?
Supraman216h ago(Edited 6h ago) Why are you PS fanboys such haters for BC? Is it because Sony doesn't have it? Lol and this is coming from a person that only owns Playstation consoles. ============================= === Did you buy a Phat PS 3??? You know the one that UPsampled all those PS 2 games [awa DVDs] to 1080p??? I still have mine. I also have a slim PS3 hooked up to my 4K Sony Bravia playing GT 6 which every other week gets new Seasonal Events from PD awa tracks designed by gamers... Is Forza 5/ Horizon2 of Forza 6 still being supported? Hows about Forza 4 [or 3/2 or 1] do you get B/C of those on the XBone??? There is nothing wrong with B/C but if there is so much demand, why tf did Microsoft discontinue the 360 before ALL the games were port?? Also IF B/C is that good why are people BUYING s/h copies of CoD??? Are retail games so shit on the XBone that people are buying old DVD ones?? And you people think the XBone isn't an utter flop and BAD for the Industry, or that S*O*N*Y!!! [lol] has to PAY for exclusivity??? http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... I think not. Maybe MS discontinued the wrong console.lol
"It's sad that people buy new console to play old games" You're going to pretend that people don't play new games on their consoles?
Can you imagine if MS comes onstage at the end of E3 and says almost forgot to mention that XBox original games will be BC with the XB1 and everyone in the audience gets a free copy of KOTOR .
Don't need a free copy got one on my shelf but as great as it would be you really wanna go further backwards. There's nothing currently or coming up worry about the future it's why I'm not buying an Xbox one nothing console worthy that can't be bought elsewhere so far really Apart from a couple maybe rare replay but again old games that I grew up on. At the end of the day the 360 should have and could of been able to do it and they never bothered I don't see why they would now for Xbox one. Put them up on the store to download I can see happening sure. Kerching for micrsoft.
I guess BC is a far bigger deal than what a lot of people say it is.
lol have fun hackers, make them mad.
We got a jealous sony fanboy here, get over yourself.
LMAO! Is that what I am now? Nah I was however a xbox fanboy last gen and was willing to buy a XBO but that youtube cancer of BGST and the rest of the morons made me not even want to own any MS products. Of course this is hard due to PC... but Im doing alright.
@DopeTech that doesn't make him a fanboy he's just stating a con with a older game.
Haven't come across any hackers yet... A lot of sweaty try hards though
Please tell me you didn't let vidcasters influence your decision on an xbox, that's insane. Esepcially when you have other shots like TiC Podcast, the shop podcast and a host of other positive xbox or gaming podcast out there.
I guess gamestop will be happy.
just put my 10 dollar copy on hold for pickup tomm.
And that's why this industry sucks balls.
And Activision, not so happy.
Why aren't they happy? You still have to buy DLC if you want to play everything with others... They already made over 1 billion with this game over 5 yrs ago.
Backwards compatibility has a lot of great games available so far
My favorites thus far are Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Alan Wake, and Dead Space 1.
Why? When its $10 on sale digitally on xbox.com. So is WAW and Black Ops II is 20.00 not bad deals.
True True. Just got it digital for $10. I think some people just want the physical discs tho.
Funny you say that as I had it held at Gamestop and i was like eh ill look on live. OHH 10 bones! Sold.. So I actually bought on XBL . Pretty sweet, gave me all my dlc i purchased before and kept my rank and my loadouts from 2010/2011
Time to sell my copy I guess. Zombies was good though, so that might lure me back. Holding out for [email protected] though!
That's all my friend been talking about. He's more excited BO1 bc than he is for infinite warfare. Then again, who isn't? Lol
If you listen to the N4G fanboy, no one cares about BC.....lol. Fanboys are idiots.
I don't care about it except for old cods and thats only because today's cods are garbage.
COD hasn't been good since COD4 Modern Warfare.
[email protected] was CoD at it's peak.
Fair enough but activision is just milking COD now and TBH it's boring now.
If you have gold it's only 10$ digitally
$10 well spent 👌
Get black ops 2 on there and I'll go to work naked doing cartwheels with church socks on!
This and MW2 are the only COD games I own and ever play. Everything else is trash.
Sony guys got to rebuy the same games they already own just to play again
Coz this is awesome, not!! Game stop will be happy not the devs... every pre owned bought game gives game stop the profit and the poor dev misses out on money that can go in to the next game....
You would be surprsed on how many people are actually buying the digital version.
well i hope they are. because the dev deserves to get the money :) not game stop.
Crazy that BO being B/C is more impressive than almost all other gaming news right now.
I guess if you only follow and play Xbox...
Great job by Microsoft! The Backwards Compatibility is really doing GREAT for Xbox One, I'm currently playing it right now and it looks and performs just like you would play it on the X360, and that's AWESOME, that's wizardry right there!!
I am not sure how bad hacking is as I don't really play bo1 these days, I know it can be bad at times on other older cods though although last week playing cod4 I didn't run into any on ps3. Hopefully with the influx of newer players it won't be as big of an issue since I don't know of X1 players hacking any bc games.
Hardly Xbox one is an upgraded 360 it's not like Sony when they changed to Cell processor or Nintendo always doing their own thing Microsoft basically upgraded the Xbox 360 and rebranded it The One, it's an upgraded 360 it's not all that hard to imagine them getting the older games to run on the new console considering the old console came out 10 years ago. Hey ho enjoy your gaming. I for one won't be playing Cod's from yesrs gone by moved on long time ago all good things come to an end. There's only so many times you can prestige not that it gets you anywhere or means anything yet you get people signing up new accounts to get their stats as perfect as possible... Shocking. Look forward to E3 either way... NEW games.
You have enough salt to last a century.
Yes Yes let the salt flow through you
Would you like a pretzel to go with that salt? roflmao.
"Hardly Xbox one is an upgraded 360 it's not like Sony when they changed to Cell processor " Well the Xbox One didn't have to change its architecture type of that much because the 360 was already very close to a PC also that's not true as the Xbox One added Blu-ray player on top of having 3 OS's. Both Microsoft and Sony very Progressive upgrades to their platforms in address to various issues Microsoft address their format issue an updated with a Blu-ray Drive and has a hard drive and every system Sony change their CPU type and went with x86 to be more user-friendly for developers so both companies are both very Progressive in that regard so I have no clue what you're talking about. The the Xbox One is nothing like the Xbox 360 and like most of your post I find it that comment pretty exaggerative to a very very high degree.
Wow this kinda detracts from the current generation huh...ultimately hurting current software titles!
What a horrible article. There no proof or links to what is being said. Are we supposed to take your word as fact?
when you have no new games/ip to be excited about on xbox one BC comes in handy. This is great for gamestop though because that spike in used games sales..to bad the developers get nothing out of it...
Cry, scream and cry!
Really? people are excited to play BO1 again? Is it that hard to play it on 360? You would think people would be tired of playing B01 & B02 I guess it's fun running around in the same old maps again. I'm not saying accept terrible games like Infinite Warefare or BO3 but I just don't see the hype in this.
It's $9.99 USD for Gold Members.
i had it digital so just downloaded and started to play. the lobbies seem fine its been so long i forgot how i used to play my load outs were no help. i saw plenty of people that had just gotten the game but i also came across people with modded controllers still on the 360. overall its still simple old duty find you a nice place and camp still i like it
Yesterday, around 80 000 people were playing it https://twitter.com/JamieMo... But according to N4G users, noone uses bc.
