Well, hoped for some new titels (e.g. Star Trek games in dec). But well, holiday is holiday.
Was also suprised that there are already more than 500 titles compatible, saw it on his blog when I set the list to 500 per page and there was a second page. And still there are so many titles missing.


Btw, the duke is currently on sale, but I can really not recommend that game on x360/xb1. I bought it and something is really off with the animations. Well I still got the PC version, so this is the way to play it. It was never a really great game, but the console port is really underwhelming.

Disappointing that we didn't get more OG Xbox games or classics like Ninja Gaiden II. But this year was pretty good, at least now they are focusing on retail games. In the previous years, the majority was xbox live arcade games.

I'm still waiting for NCAA Football '14 to be backwards compatible. EA hasn't killed the online support, and people still make new rosters every year. Would love to play it w/o having to get the 360 out of mothballs.

I get this feeling like they might start making BC games available through streaming next year. There was that mention that they wanted to get 360 games working for Game Pass on Windows PC's.

Just a feeling. Hopefully they would still continue with the old software BC program along side of it if that did come to pass.

I’m wondering if they will ever make Soul Calibure 4 and 5 backwards compatible. I’m guessing they probably won’t with the licensing with the Star Wars and Assassins creed characters in the games.

Fuel is a great game. It might be better with BC as it had a lot of technical issues. I always thought a sequel would be nice to clean it up. The crew is kind of a more modern version of fuel.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Since the digital versions are cheap right now on the Countdown sale, I took a gamble on Risen, Risen 2, and Risen 3 with the hope that they get added to BC sometime in the future.

I hope we start seeing more 360 enhanced titles. It's pretty impressive how much better they look.
No lies detected. I've been replaying Final Fantasy XIII and the visuals look amazing.

The Last of Us may be third person, but it is hardly third person.

Literally got an XBOX One X for the BC - the fact that I can't even my PSOne discs on the PS4 is enfuriating. Been playing both RDR and FFXIII and they look amazing. And, more importantly, my beloved Panzer Dragoon Orta is incredible to behold with the upscaling.
That’s a pretty shitty reason to get a One X. I would think having the best possible version of current gen games would be enough motivation

It is my reason and I'll live with it. Most of my gaming is retro gaming and playing these games in 4K is well worth the price.

I already had most current gen games I'm interested in playing set up with my PS4 Pro. Though now I wish I had waited and played RDR2 on my One X.

New Vegas would be great to see X Enhanced, it's kind of strange that it's not considering Fallout 3 is.

Eh some of us love a console that can play games from a begone era where they were relatively complete. You are right though, I love cycling through Odyssey, Doom, and Witcher, while still being able to enjoy MW 2 and 3, Ninja Gaiden Black, and hell Killer Is Dead (without having to re purchase them again if I already own them).
