And how, exactly, is this a deal? It's just an announcement.
Great to see Chaos Theory, but always hoped the Max Payne trilogy would make it in one day.

If you don't have an Xbox 360 laying around you don't need to scour eBay for one, thus saving you up to £60

They made a really good effort with this. But what does this mean for the future xbox 360 games with gold? They will only choose ones which have already been readied?
Nice
Wish Marvel Vs Capcom 2 and the Simpsons arcade game was on
Aaaaah part of me wished they'd do LMA Manager 2007!! Never mind.
Splinter Cells

Interesting thought. Will they go back to doing more games after project scarletts release?

There was a line in the E3 conference (which has probably been addressed somewhere already and I've just missed it) where they said words to the effect of "bringing 4 generations of games together". Hoping it means they're doubling down on supporting the back catalogue.
I’m going to have to pick up a Splinter Cell now, given we’re not going to see anything new from the franchise for a while

Well yes, plenty of them to go.
wouldn't be surprised if the 360 games start to repeat/disappear as we get closer to Scarlett

I was praying so hard for this.....
Actually going to play it now...
The best football management SIM bar none!!!!

Never tried playing an original Xbox game on the One, does anyone know if the ‘classics’ variants of the discs are compatible?

They should be, just put the disc in and it'll download a new compatible version
Enslaved is brilliant think I'll pick that up

I would assume so
No Max Payne 3 😣
Think the backwards compatibility will continue but via xcloud.. Licensing issues for the games aside of course. Nice to see the rare games get enhanced, so I'll be playing through them.
So no Jet Set Radio Future

Me too! Starting to give up hope. I read somewhere the studio that made it was shut down (think they made the PGR games too) and there were licensing issues. Loved that game so much!

I imagine this for the next few months, maybe a year, before dropping 360 games from the lineup. Or possibly they will run it for 2 years and then drop 360 and add next gen at E3 2021. It could also mean repeats will happen.

Vice city is all I wanted
on a plus note banjo kazooie in 4K
No TMNT arcade or Simpsons arcade. Looks like I'll be keeping my Xbox 360
Damn it. I grabbed a copy of Toca Race Driver 2 hoping that would one day make the list....
@BuzzDuraband cheers for list and info in misc
As much as I’d love to jump back into Splinter Cell, can anyone tell me if they are going to display in 4:3 mode? If so, they are going to look horrendous on my current setup

Too human free this week that’s a good deal
Why are they killing such a promising programme? Seems stupid. I know the official line is for the next console but that is bull. This is Microsoft FFS, they have stacks of cash, no reason at all they couldn't have left the original team do their thing for 360 and og Xbox while setting up a brand new team for project Scarlett.

Particularly bad for the original Xbox as they barely started on that, it's got what 20 titles if that. Shameful.
They wont have to do any real optimisation for scarlet as the xb1's sdk can run with visual studio. We are likely to see scarlet even closer to a modern pc than ever before. BUT OMG Banjo in 4k. I might actually have to buy a onex for nuts and bolts. The 360 emulation on pc is still in dev so i haven't played it since it came out, I MISS THAT GAME
Omg yes infinite undiscovery I've waited so long
Fair play to Microsoft for sticking with backward compatibility.
Something Sony said they would always do for Playstation, but gave up on pretty quick. No, PS Now doesn't count.

I agree it does seem rather odd they didn’t get another team in or take 1 person from the team to over see the new people to keep the bc program running. Great feature and will surly be missed as there is still so many great games yet to be added. Hopefully once scarlet is out they can get back to bringing more games on the system. Shame though as they could of atleast left us with answer with saying it’s over forever or just taking a break for 18 months
No Commandos 2?!
Fudge it, whole thing was a stupid idea that no-one wanted anyways.
Can someone pass my rattle, it appears to have fell out my pram...
37834769-7hG4Y.jpgIt's like that, huh? No mo' BC, no way to play Def Jam Fight For New York without buying an OG Xbox. Aight
This is not the last we will see BC, MS are simply moving it to the next xbox, so every game you have already on the xbox one will be there with the next xbox, then BC for the original xbox, xbox 360 and xbox one will start again on project Scorpio, so i can't blame them for making it a selling feature of the next console, but MS have made 560 games BC on the xbox one, so there will still be 2 free to keep forever xbox and xbox 360 games every month with your GWG, i mean at 24 xbox 360 games a year free with gold it would take over 18 years for MS to give away every singe game on BC that is there now. lol

Oh, and Too human is here at last.........a game that wil no doubt shine on the BC.
