SSX should be on the list! Fantastic game, and it is X1X enhanced. It looks really good in 4K.

SSX, or SSX3?

SSX 3 is tremendous. Recently played and ejoyed it again.

Tried to get into SSX (reboot) a few times, but sadly it's no match for SSX3.

Surprised Ninja Gaiden Black isn't on the list. Nor Kingdoms of Amalur; Reckoning.

There's currently a BC sale in the Xbox Marketplace, but sadly Portal 2 isn't on it.

Splinter cell is a worthy upgrade as well.

This 'Best of BC' list is a complete failure. Any top 10 or 20 BC list is a garbage if it doesn't include Ninja Gaiden games on it somewhere

I think ninja gaiden 2 is the best upgrade of all, atleast on the x. It seriously looks like it could be a current gen game now, all it took was a render resolution config change and a stable 60 FPS. Kudos to Microsoft for not trying to tell us they “remastered” the game and selling it for $60 with no option to use the old disk or old digital license.


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.

Sheppard7t3706d ago

I loved those games so much back in the day.

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.

BehindTheRows707d ago

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

MissAubrey707d ago (Edited 707d 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

BehindTheRows707d ago (Edited 707d 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.

Knightofelemia707d ago (Edited 707d 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.

Knightofelemia707d ago (Edited 707d 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.

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

BehindTheRows707d ago (Edited 707d 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.

MissAubrey706d ago (Edited 706d ago )

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

BehindTheRows707d ago

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

dreamed706d ago

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.

SirBruce707d ago

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

MissAubrey707d 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!
