Guess I am confused why they even need publishers approval if they are running it on a virtual 360. Guess maybe it has to do with the store or a courtesy to them but I think we are going to be frustrated with the cherry picking of games publishers are willing to put up for this.

Either way.. with a massive library of 360 games I am eager to have more pop up and I am a little let down they have not already trickled these out weekly.
If Microsoft didn't have publishing rights then it isn't there place to just put up other's published titles on any ecosystem they choose

Just give me the old CoD games and ill be happy.
Why, just why...

Will be fun playing against modders and cheater i guess
What's weird is that I actually agree with both comments.
I really want CoD4:MW and CoD:WaW to be made backward compatible. So many great memories.

But yeah....lighting up my Xbox 360 not too long ago to play CoD4:MW made me realize that its multiplayer servers seem to be home only to cheaters looking for LuLz. And thats really disappointing.

Probably a contractual issue. "You said you would sell it only here, not here AND here." that sort of thing.
There's also the fact that downloading a game to the Xbox One appears to be additioal. So you can still have that title tied to a 360 console as well for offline use. The BC is essentially giving you and additional usage license which you didn't previously own.

Yep. COD4 and WaW are the most hacked IMO. I gave up on WaW when the other team had God mode on.

MW3, BO, and BO2 seem to be doing quite well without hackers.

MW2 is just a noobtube fest.

Thats what im saying. It seems like that People vote for this games on the Uservoice site like its going to be different on XboxOne. Yeah it would be nice to play this games again etc
But you would still connect to 360 servers. Yeah no thanks. I will keep them as great memories.

I just want them to get them on the BC list so that we can move onto better, smaller titles.

The latest nod of approval comes from Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot. During a post-earnings financial call this morning, he said that the new Xbox One feature is "very good news for the industry." He applauded what it means for consumers to be able to revisit their library despite jumping forward in console technology, but he also mentioned what it means for Ubisoft. "It will help some of the brands, like Splinter Cell for us, come to Xbox One, which is great," he said."
Although it was obvious they were on board (rainbow 6 pack in), that sounds like confirmation splinter cell is also on its way.

It will be interesting to see if Ubisoft will only do a ps4/xboxone port of "Assassin's Creed: Rogue" or a port and make it available for backward compatibility or just make it available for backward compatibility.
I hope they choose to go with the middle option. This way everyone will benefit.(escpecially $$$ for Ubisoft)

Chances of MGSHD collection coming to this?

Microsoft rep: hey Mr. Konami, I don't know if you heard, but we can now have Xbox 360 games play on the Xbox one. We would love to be granted permission from you to bring your Metal Gear games to this endeavor.

Mr. Konami: Metal Gear games? What are those, what are you talking about?

MS guy: you know, the critically-acclaimed and successful franchise you guys own.

Mr. K: I'm sorry, I don't know what you are speaking of, I can't help you. However, if you would like to collaborate on new games for that Windows phone of yours, please give me a call.

MS dude: Um, yeah sure, next time.

Cool, promising words from Ubisoft.

It makes sense too. While remasters might work in some cases, it's not like they're cheap to produce. Releasing a remaster is a complex set of variables just like any other game. While the actual development is cheaper, it's still expensive to port things to a new platform, processes to release at retail and digitally, and tons of other process which takes a lot of people and a lot of time.

It seems like Ubisoft and other companies are welcoming of the idea of being able to sell their 360 games on Xbox One with pretty much no work at all instead of spending all that time and money putting together remasters (except for obvious remasters which would undoubtedly be successful)

None of my videos or screenshots of Perfect Dark show up on xboxdvr.com, or my xbox.com profile.


I'm sad :(.

I played through half the game last night on the X1....realized it was after midnight way too late...was tired at work all day.


Perfect Dark was/is such an awesome game!

Edit** Earlier last night...



...haha

So just inserted the Perfect Dark Zero disc to install it that way, but it's telling me it's not supported. Though according to the current compatible list, it should be. Anyone else have any problems with disc games not working?

Are you in the Preview and have the latest update? If so, you usually have to go into the Preview section and start a quest for some of the stuff to work,

Yes I'm in the preview, I ran the quest, the quest even states PDZero but no amounts of re-inserting the disc makes a difference, still tells me it's not supported.

That sad moment when COD is on the top of the voting list... Like seriously ... ugh.
The games are getting more votes because they're popular, not really surprising that people want their favorite games to get supported.

I'd hope MS doesn't really go off this list much anyways. Cod is fine as long as we also get more niche stuff like a deadly premonition or bayonetta.

Can you easily remove a credit card from your MS account yet?

I want to play Hexic HD on my XBO, but I had one of the launch Xbox 360s where it was on the harddrive, so I have to "buy" it again through the website to "activate: it. For whatever reason I can't do that -- even though its fucking free -- without adding a credit card.

That and Splinter Cell Blacklist would be great for me.
I've started and they're good but my 360 is just too noisy these days!
Also I'd get surround sound with the B/c versions.
I'm pretty sure that Ubisoft will make Blacklist into a HD Remake at some point.
I recall thinking that even when it first came out when it had some ridiculous additional assets on another disc.
I mean they'll just wait until another 4 years when they release the next Splinter Cell.

actually my late 2007 xbox had it on the hard drive too. Had to "buy" it recently.

What's the reason you're worried about having a card on the box?
