Yeeeeeeeeesssssssss. Hopefully character importing works just fine, but even if not, don't care. Hyped to finish the series.

Have things improved?

Last time I checked, the DF article on ME1 said performance was WORSE than on the 360, nigh unplayable at times.

I'm happy about this, but I wish they were available digitally. The multi-disc issue has been resolved with other games.

Somebody let us know what the performance is like.

Most every game from the first days of BC performs better now, I'd imagine the same is true of ME.

I was holding out for a remaster...but that seems like it might be a ways away now. May have to pick up a copy of the trilogy.

Must have not been keeping up for a long time then, about all games perform better on BC now.

Sounds like you haven't checked since then. Yes it's improved, and in many cases (RDR, Halo Reach, Bayonetta) XBO back compat is superior to the 360 version.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe it's free on Xbox one, but a gold feature on 360 so technically you'd need gold to transfer it once.

Nice! I'm hoping that my whole 360 collection eventually hits BC. I also encourage anyone who hasn't already give ME a try.
