Either this is an error or somebody jumped the gun and the BC for those games are not live yet but will be soon. Same goes with what happened yesterday with the Lost Odyssey being free debacle.

I'll say.
It was recommended to me by a Ganestop eemployee when I got a 360. I, myself, managed to be drawn to the game and the series since.

Has it really been 9/10 years?
Year When I picked up an Xbox 360 I picked Ridgeracer and Dead Rising. Shop assistant said to choose Oblivion instead of Ridge Racer.

Amazing game the initial escape from the prison when you enter the open world was incredible!

I'm looking at the page now, and it may have been corrected.

Edit: Yeah, it's been corrected. Bummer.

These are Featured Games for Xbox 360.

That's a second section on the page. Only the first half is BC.
Originally, they had some mis-categorized, so things like Oblivion had a big banner over them for being playable on XB1. They fixed it shortly afterward.
