Initial list is a bit disappointing but still has solid titles.

The real megaton is Black Ops being announced. Activision is on board.

sucks that there is no Halo Reach.

AC2 is pretty much the only one I am interested atm.

No RDR, no BC2, Mass Effect 2/3, etc.

Terrible list, hope they get to updating it quickly.

"We won't charge you to play your old games"

Guess he left out "because the games you actually own won't be on the list"

Terrible list, but I'm not sure what I expected. Hopefully it won't be long for Tales of Vesperia to be added.

Disappointing list but at least Activision is on board. Hoping for RDR to be added asap.

Looks like that leaked list was pretty accurate.

No Dark Souls,
No Halo Reach, no Alan Wake, only AC2, no Bayonetta, no Burnout Paradise, no Child of Eden, Crysis 3, Dead Space, no Forza games, only Halo: Spartan Assault and that's only a few.

That list was basically a wishlist, nothing more.

Yes, Lego Pirates of the Caribbean! That game messed up my GamerScore and I need to finish it to fix it.

Ctrl-F "Uno" :(

Lots of my Live Arcade games are backwards compat which is nice.


Phil Spencer said on Giant Bomb's E3 podcast this year there was a technical issue with multidisk games. No Mass Effect 2 probably means they haven't solved that yet.

So December is the proper list? Gotcha.

Seriously Phil, why do you insist on ignoring PGR. You won't make a new one, and we're made to wait even longer for BC :-(

Decent start, I'm hoping they are adding 20+ games in december and halo wars is there then, I need my RTS fix.

So like expected, a bunch of arcade titles.

Anyone who expected more at BC launch should have kept their expectations down tbh. Some of the games you guys want we probably won't see until 2016.

EA announced that BP was going to be available, so far from just a wishlist.

It just takes time to make sure everything is up and running.

MS promised 100 games at launch and they hit it.

I'll wait for the next batch in December. I've never played a Skate game and I'd like to finally get around to that.
