Wee we can finally play USM with progressive scan! Destroy All Humans is another fine addition... wonder how long it would take them to add the second one.

Can some try Scarface on their 360 if they have it? I hear it's a great game, but I don't really buy Xbox 1 games anymore. If they 360 cleans it up a bit with AA etc I might get it if it works good.

lol it's all Bill Gates' fault!

I don't think it's an "M$" greed thing, I think it's just a mother****er to emulate all the games.

This is the only game that matters.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Edit: Oh, after Doom 3 of course (they added support for it earlier).

Just tried out a few of those games and Soul Caliber 2 really stood out. Its amazing and looks as good as many current 360 titles. Still waiting for some more fighters and JSRF along with Panzer Dragoon Orta.

Go over to the xbox.com forums, find the Wishlist and Feedback forum, then find the Backwards Compatability thread. Most importantly read the replies written by XBOXFAN, who was part of the BC team, and knows what he's talking about in regard of the xbox emulation the 360 is running.
Yes it's a shame that all xbox games aren't BC, but taking into account the different hardware, and that there's no additonal hardware in a 360 to do the job (which would raise the cost of the 360, and anyway PS3 has it and still doesn't do it perfectly - better but not perfect) and that it's able at all to emulate, with increased quality, the previous gen system, what they've got out of it is pretty amazing.

That would be...give me a sec, I know this...


Never. This was known well before the system even launched. If you did your homework, you knew what you were getting.
