PS5 won't go that far back, Sony weren't really that bothered about it during the PS4's time-line and I doubt they are going to anywhere beyond that console itself when it comes to backward compatibility..

As much as it annoys me that certain games didn't get BC releases, like Dead Rising 1, 2 and Off The Record, at least I can play them on current gen buy dishing out the money for the "remasters". Other games, are not so easy to aquire.

So now that the dust has settled, and the bodycount is tallied, what are your games that never made the cut and also are either not available anywhere else, or at least not easily available?

Exlusive to 360

After Burner Climax
Bankshot Billiards
Dead or Alive 4
Project Gotham Racing 3
Project Gotham Racing 4
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1989 arcade

Others with no digital versions

Condemned 2 Bloodshot - also has PS3 disc version
El Shaddai - also has PS3 disc version
F1 2013 - also has PS3 disc version, Steam (now delisted)
Lollipop Chainsaw - also has PS3 disc version
Need for Speed Most Wanted (2005) - also has prior gen releases, no digital PC version but had a disc release
Need for Speed Carbon - also has PS3 disc version, prior gen releases, no digital PC version but had a disc release
Test Drive Unlimited - also has prior gen, no digital PC version but had a disc release
Transformers War for Cybertron - also has PS3 disc versions, delisted from Steam
Wet - also has PS3 disc version

Every time I see this thread bumped I get a bit sad, but 18 - 24 months from now it should be back in full swing.

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.

I think about the only game I'm bummed never made it to the backwards compatibility program is Eternal Sonata. Most of my other 360-era JRPGs made the cut, but this one didn't.

I REALLY wanted...

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
After Burner Climax
Tony Hawks Pro Skater

Having said that, I'm extremely grateful for all the games we did get. I still regularly play Defense Grid.

(*Genma Onimusha featured enough new content, gameplay features, and graphics enhancements that it has to be considered a different game from Onimusha Warlords. That's why I include it in this list.)

Great idea intbal with the covers. It really hits home how many gems are locked away on the original xbox.

I was just wondering, at what resolution does Perfect Dark HD run when played on Xbox One X? it is X enhanced, which usually means a 9x boost to resolution on Xbox 360 games.
a 9x boost to Perfect Dark HD, which runs at 1080p on 360, would mean it's 5760x3240, which is basically 6K at this point... that would be crazy, since I think it also has either 2x or 4x MSAA... 6k with 4x MSAA is ridiculous

Any decent platformers that are BC? is blinx any good ?
Blinx is not really a Platformer, it's more of a beat em up really. it has platforming but it's not the focus of the game.

there's Banjo... I personally don't like the Banjo games but some people do 🤷‍♂️
I think Rayman 3 HD is back compat, most Sonic games are, Super Meat Boy if you don't mind 2D stuff... also both of the new 2D Rayman games are compatible (even tho Legends is also on Xbox One natively) and I think Legends includes most levels of Origins? right?

Psychonauts also compatible, and with the second one on the way, a great time to catch up!
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, while technically an Action Adventure with fighting and puzzles, it also has some nice platforming and stuff... the Prince of Persia reboot also has a decent amount of it.

Conker's Bad Fur Day is on the Xbox One in 2 forms,
#1: the native port of the N64 original, only available via Rare Replay... basically just an HD remaster no real adjustments other than making it look decent in HD.
#2: the Live & Reloaded remake, which is back compat and is IMO by far the better version... many hate on it due to the curse words being bleeped out, but the completely remade base controls and fighting mechanincs, aswell as improved leveldesign make it by far the better game, especially from a modern perspective. And the graphics, especially on One X at 1920p, still look fantastic! that game showed what the hardware of the Xbox could do in a really awesome way.

Kingdom Under Fire: Crusaders runs fine on 360. Heroes is incompatible.

Thanks.
I made this list a long time ago. Double checked everything according to the available lists. I wonder if there was a bad entry back then.
I couldn't check every game myself, but KUF:Crusaders is definitely listed as compatible now.

Unreal Championship 2 (Xbox) looks fantastic on the X & runs at a locked 60fps:


I instantly bought a copy after seeing this. I love Unreal Tournament. I still play the OG version with bots on my retro gaming PC rig now and again.
