More Xbox One X enhanced games for the Xbox 360 backwards compatibility are coming soon.
At first I thought they meant new exclusives
Call it, better support and fan service. ;)
So resale old games a 3rd time....man. this is just lazy, cheap support.
Is that what you think of SotC then thrash? It's an old game that has been sold 3 times now.
@Kingthrash360 How is it lazy, cheap support when MS is improving games I already bought on my original Xbox and 360 and updating them for My new console, some with 4K Visuals? I pay nothing more for it ...I'm just able to use my discs or digital on my new console , improved at no extra cost... Meanwhile Sony are offering backwards compatibility via a streaming service which means to play them on my PS4 I have to purchase them again ? Or Worse ... Re releasing games over again , every generation .. ie Shadow of the Colossus and Sony fans are singing their praises ? You've literally bought the same game three times lol !! Sony removed hardware backwards compatibility from the PS3 , replaced it with software and then removed it completely .. Now Sony wants to sell you the same games you already bought to play in an inferior manner via PS Now. Oh yeah "For the Players" ....lol
@Kingthrash360 We getting better versions of enhanced games on the X than Sony´s remasters on PS4 Pro for FREE! Sony will make us pay for old remastered games every single generation. Sony is making big money out remasters and that´s why i don´t belive the PS5 to be backwards compatible! Doesn´t matter what you say about old games since is the real gamers that are out there spending their money on them. According to the latest sales reports, PS4 fans love old games! All i see is games like Crash and SoT on the spootlight making to the Top 20 UK chartz! No signal of new games like Horizon, Uncharted Lost Legacy or Gran Turismo Sport. Facts.
***So resale old games a 3rd time....man. this is just lazy, cheap support.*** Or play old games you already own at better performance and HiRes graphic simulation. At least there's the option to play those games. Or are we going to go with the argument that nobody wants old games likes Shadow of the Colossus? They're not selling me anything new unless I don't already own the game from my time with my 360. And even then, I can get these games for $5-10, not $40.
@darthv72 can you name a huge hit for Xbox that deserves the shadow of the colossus treatment?
Who is reselling old games for a 3rd time? Too funny, let's bang on MS for proving enhancements for older games you might already own. Meanwhile let's celebrate other companies putting fresh paint over a tired and beaten down Datsun.
Call it a blatant crutch because MS obviously has nothing new to offer, they HAVE to rely on BC .
Lots of emphasis and support for backwards compatibility to distract xbox gamers from realizing that they have nothing going forward...
@Kingthrash360 - BC means you can play the game on Xbox One if you already own it for OG or Xbox 360. Enhancements are free. Maybe knowing just a little bit about what you are talking about before you post might help? You think?
all I know is that one of my favourite games of all time kotor looks great on back compat so I'm all for it
Mind sharing how reading the title led you to that conclusion? Anyways, it is pretty cool that BC can get upgraded this much though. Seems like devs are able to basically remaster them on 1X if they want: https://www.windowscentral....
Oh well. I tried. I guess he doesn't want to answer.
No you didn't.
Keep beating that dead horse.
I think of the same lol
While this is an amazing feature i wish even sony would adopt, id rather info on new releases in 2018/19. Other game makers choose to remake or remaster older titles instead of the backwards compat route which isnt a big deal to me either as i rent my games through gf or redbox.
I get what your saying but I'm there other way. Ide rather know what I'm getting in the next few months rather than what maybe out late on this year maybe next to then find out its been dropped.
oh look free remasters
Free renasters? The upgrades are for Xbox one x....people paid 500 for this
yep, they also paid money for the TV, couch they sit on, House they live in etc. do you wanna add all up?
No, people paid $500 for the ability to play older games to go with the newer ones just like how people brought the PS4 Pro to play a better looking version of a game compared to the base PS4 , but some people have this illusion that the only games on xbox are the BC games
Guess what... the Xbox One and Xbox One S versions are improved play over originals too... just the Xbox One X will add even more enhancements for FREE. Too bad PS4 you have to wait for a complete remade game to come and then pay for it again.
Please add and enhance ninja gaiden 2 and dantes inferno please. Also the mass effect trilogy remaster would be insanely great.
i;d love for them to give burnout paradise a try so we can compare it to the effort EA put into "Remastering" it bet it will look better emulated into 4k
Go go Xbox One X
XxMessiah23xX: Right? Like the new shadow of collosus remake that sold, played, and reviewed better than the ps2 version? Why would sony do such a thing??? /s http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... Also, the crash bandicoot remake that sold over 3.4 million and was widely well recieved by the community. https://www.polygon.com/201... Spyro will prob follow the same fate... Sadface https://www.gamespot.com/ar... Also, usually when playstation makes a remaster or remake... A new game in the universe is to follow like the new crash bandicoot game rumored to be in dev... How dare they give the consumers what they want! What do these 3 games have in common? Doabarrelroll above: Lmfao... Bravo... Standing Ovation
One of those you listed comes from Activision, not Sony. The second theoretical title isn't confirmed but just like the other the IP is owned by Activision. Crash Bandicoot: https://www.crashbandicoot.... "© 2018 Activision Publishing, Inc. ACTIVISION and CRASH BANDICOOT are trademarks of Activision Publishing, Inc.

I mean, If you're happy buying the same games two or three times over on Playstation whilst Xbox gets older games updated for free to play via BC on the latest machine then you've obviously got more money than sense.
And if you like spending $499 for an xbox 1 in 2013 and then $299-399 again for the xb1s and then another $499 in 2017 i could say the same thing about yourself... And again, i rent my games through gamefly and pay 20$ a month which only pay half of that to share with my brother.
"And if you like spending $499 for an xbox 1 in 2013 and then $299-399 again for the xb1s and then another $499 in 2017 i could say the same thing about yourself... " @Paintedgamer1984 What a stupid point to try and argue. I could make exactly the same argument about the Original PS4 , The PS4 Slim and the PS4 Pro. But I didn't because it is irrelevant and off topic.
@paintedgamer1984 Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is not a remake. It´s a remaster. The numbers that you shared here just shows how hypocrite PS fanboys can be. They talk crap about BC games on Xbox but old PS remastered games sells like hot cakes! Can you see the irony?
Actually my reply was to someone above talking shit on sonys remaster/remake of games when in all reality you know damn well if those 3 games were on xbox noone would even bat an eye. Sounds more like ppl are salty when they cant have what someone else does. ive said in my previous posts backwards compat is something i wish sony would embrace... no fanboy here. Ive owned all xbox systems except the x
It's a remake... You know those garbage ports of Voodoo Vince and Phantom Dust that MS charged you for? Those are "remasters" and not very good ones. Crash was remade from the ground up and had more effort put into it than anything MS has done lately.
Need to check your facts again bud, Crash is a "remake".
Rehashing the same tired old games , dressing them up in new graphics and selling them to gullible fools with more money than sense. Crash Bandicoot , Spyro , minimal effort to the game engine some fancy new gfx - medievil will be next and the ponies will lap it up .. And pay full price for it too .. Suckerrs!! SotC , literally the same game released three times lol .. the ponies love it :) New Crash bandicoot is just a rumour , and isn't crash only a timed exclusive anyway ? Isn't it coming to other systems soon ?
Only spyro and thats a rumor as of now
"Rehashing the same tired old games , dressing them up in new graphics and selling them to gullible fools with more money than sense." Yip because the PS4 has no new exclusives so Sony has to rely on rehashing old games right? And the xbox has exclusives in abundance so that xbox fanboys dont have to waist there time replaying old games until the next failed exclusive comes around right? But luckily for us "suckerrs" Sony's exclusive line-up is strong enough that we dont have sit in anticipation as to when the next old BC game will drop, so we can actually choose if we want to revisit our favourite games from yesteryear or continue along the path of greatness by playing the best exclusives. It kind of makes you wonder who the "suckerrs" really are. ;)
@Inzo I own a PS4 Pro as well as an X. I play my multiplatform games on the X. I play Playstation exclusives on Playstation. I choose not to buy into the fanboy hype train and rebuy the same games - ie SotC and Crash because I see it for what it is. A cash grab. I also see that MS providing backwards compatibility at no extra cost to the user as what it is - a good thing. Sony uses the tag line "For the Players" but tell me which part of "For the Players" is PS Now streaming ? Only an idiot could try to argue that PS Now is anything more than Sony making you re buy games you already own? Why if you own the disc or digital licence already can you not play on PS Now for free? It's very clear to me who the Sucker is in this conversation.
"Only an idiot could try to argue that PS Now is anything more than Sony making you re buy games you already own?" This line makes me wonder if you have a PS4. What is BC but the same cash grab, the avg gamer at any given time owns between 6 and 10 games of which 2 will be new releases, there are hundreds of games available for BC what do you think a gamer, who doesnt have a specific game, is going to have to do to play that game even as a BC game? Thats right, he will have to buy it. PS Now is a subscription service not unlike your Xbox live but I can cancel my subscription at any time and reapply at any time and for me who is primarily a SP gamer its a win win situation because I dont really care for PS+ and now I can play any game at any time and soon PS2 and PSP games will be made available so it just keeps getting better.
@Inzo I couldn't give a shit whether or not you believe I have PS4 Pro or not lol. You can believe what you want , you can believe the moon is made of cheese or that the earth is flat and you can sail off the edge for all I care. I BELIEVE it is wrong that Sony is making gamers re purchase games they have already bought if they want to play them on PS4. I also think it is wrong that after making players re purchase games they already own they are forced to play them via a streaming service which performs sub optimally compared to natively playing on the original console. I also think that Playstation fanboys are some of the most vile pack hunting idiots I have ever come across on this or any forum. Microsoft giving players improved games via backwards compatibility for free if you own either the original disc or digital license is extremely consumer friendly, only a rabid Playstation fanboy could make it out to be anything other than that. I personally enjoy the Xbox One X more as my daily console , it plays most multiplatform games better than the PS4 Pro and I can play the Playstation exclusives like Nier Automata and Persona 5 on the Pro. It's not the Playstation 4 I dislike , it's the attitude of its fanboys. There are just as many vile MS fanboys too, but they're not nearly as numerous or as quick to jump on the Sony articles as the ponies to to anything Pro Xbox. It's like the Sony fans are insecure or something ...
Alan Wake 4K please.
These are a nice little bonus!
So Nintendo does it and everyone is like omg Nintendo is the best. Ms does it and they suck
yeah well thats how things been going for Microsoft this generation
I haven't seen much backlash for BC but I just might not have seen it. This is 100% a great thing for every console. I'd love to even play just PS1 discs on the PS4 if they don't want to do PS2 or 3. Time to go retro shopping for more OG Xbox games. (Edit) I thought this was about Xbox not Xbox 360, whoops! Same stuff still applies though.
If you haven't seen the backlash then you are straight up blind or oblivious. Scroll up and down... Tons of people saying it is bad and it is only cuz ms sucks or has no games. Sorry if that is going too far or something but for reals just LOOK! Haha P.S. Ninja Gaiden Black basically looks like a Remaster with how much better it is in 4k/with enhanced textures and Anti Aliasing
I love backwards compatibility on any system, but especially love it when it's Xbox One X Enhanced.
I love how those tweets always turn into port begging.
this is good to see old classics getting some love but come on microsoft you guys have no games what are you doing?? sea of theives.
finally a reason to get a 'box!
Good to know im like some of these jerks who cant wait to say something about Microsoft
Xbox 1 X! Tomorrow's console built..... *pause for effect*....... for yesterday's games!
PS4 Pro "The Console built for . . (Pause for effect) ...awkwardly streaming yesterday's games *" *Disclaimer you will have to repurchase Your old games to use this service ** You can also stream these "exclusive" Playstation titles to your toaster or PC.
If Lost Odyssey joins the club, I have to buy the X. I still have Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon waiting to be completed, the original Japanese versions :)
Those were made backwards compatible a while ago. Check the list. Unless you meant 4k enhanced support, in which case, I wish they add it at some point, would be awesome!
Yes! I mean 4K support. They both would look great with it. I think the frame-rate, frame-pacing and memory/hdd related stutter is not an issue with Lost Odyssey any more, but I'd still want a 4K upgrade and better AA. Such a great game, best FF type of a game since FFX and until now. It is a bit shallow in terms of gameplay, but opens up later nicely.
New games no?
Xbox fanboys be mocking the Switch's Ports and all they got is backwards compatibility on old games
Wow more games that I've already finished years ago. How about something new?
Yes! Updated old games! Can't wait to replay all of these while I wait 10 years for something new to drop. Prepare for the down votes..
