    BS, people are concerned with the backward compatibility, some sold their old xb cause the 360 was gonna be backward compatible...and some sold their xb just to afford the heavily-priced 360.

    its just that they cant play it and arent complaining too much cause they figure it'll eventually come out....

    but now, i think there will be concerened.

    I'll leave this open because no one's actually talking about it in the other thread.

    What a dumb move to do now, Xbox 360 needs all the library it can get. Especially with their arcade not doing so well.

    My Xbox just burned out and had to buy a second one because I could'nt play the majority of my games on the 360.

    Damn Microsoft, smooth move exlax

    oh man, they gotta keep adding more games. backwards compatability is a very important thing to gamers. I dont want to have to own both an X box and a 360. I don't have the room!

    I was pretty disappointed in BC when I had a 360, and it really annoyed me--there were a few Xbox 1 games I really wanted to play, but I didn't want to shell out for a second gaming system. Thus, I got to deal with slowdowns (Ninja Gaiden = nearly unplayable), weird glitches (most of the other games), and things that just didn't work (for some reason, some of the archery moves in Fable just didn't do anything, aside from occasionally crashing the game).

    "Under-promised and over-delivered" my ass. Yeah, Peter, people were really begging to be able to play "Barbie's Horse Adventure" on their 360s. :rolleyes2  IMO they UNDER-delivered. I know software emulations are a pain to do, but geez, you'd think the world's leading software company could come up with something to make it easier for everybody.

    Oh, well. It's not the end of the world, or anything. I just get irritated with two-faced corporate weasels, no matter what industry they work in.

    That's BS, honestly. They should've just incorporated the original Xbox into it so they would've have had to do all the emulation junk. Frankly now it just looks like that was another spec to put on the 360's resume and now that they're out there they're done using it. Why can't they at least add all the LIVE compatible games? You'd think those would be a priority.

    The only original Xbox game I'm dying to get is Panzer Dragoon Orta, but there's no way I'm spending tons of cash on a gigantic box that only plays Panzer Dragoon. They need to keep working on this, or I'll be very upset.

    Well Halo 2 works, and to be honest, that's all I care about enough to get pissed at.

    I thought it was doing *ok*?? Although it would help if they actually got SF2 up there.




    Hmmm... yet my copy of Mk Deception makes my 360 output a screen which looks like the cover of Dark Side of The Moon.

    Wow, taking a page out of sony's book on using enormous amounts of bullshit to convince people their move is the right and popular one. I've been holding out on getting a 360 and this isn't helping me to want one either.

    No it's not. Remeber when they gave us a smaller controller when we bitched about the gigantic one? And how the 360 pad replaces the obnoxious black and white buttons with convenient shouder buttons? Microsoft may not understand games as intimately as Nintendo does or Sega used to, but they do listen to the gamers.

    Still doesn't specify their commitment they just said "We're not done yet" but that could mean that they will be after the next update.

    I too was thinking about getting a 360 for the media center capabilities and older xbox games.
