Blops 2 was at #10 in the US sales chart for April due to BC! :shock:

Bodes well for the continued support of BC.

Was going to take a punt on Dead Space 2 & 3, but they're EA Access fodder, I predict.
Decent selection, though. Tempted to get Rage again.

It remains fairly consistent all the way through, bar the extremely, EXTREMELY abrupt ending.

I may not use my older games hugely, but it is still a great asset to the One. I often use the old arcade games as something to pop on and play when I have a few minutes. Just waiting for some of the AAA new titles to actually load a level means that I won't get to play any actual gameplay.

I guess we can start talking about OG Xbox games here too. I'm a big Crimson Skies fan so getting High Road to Revenge back would be great, along with Otogi, Yager, Outrun 2 and hope-against-hope Steel Battalion. Its been say in my parents' loft for years so should be in near-perfect condition and i just snagged a xbox to usb converter off amazon just in case.

Isn't OutRun 2 likely to be scuppered because of licencing issues?

Too bad because it really is a great game on Xbox.

You'll be able to system link across all generations, lol:
Hey, do you still have your original Xbox? And an Xbox 360? And an Xbox One? And are you planning on buying an Xbox One X? Also, do you have four Ethernet cables and seven friends? Well, guess the hell what.

While we found out during Microsoft’s press briefing that games for the original 2001 Xbox are coming to Xbox One via backward compatibility, it had another fun nugget of information to share later that day: You’ll be able to link up any Xbox in any combination to play system-link multiplayer games, Microsoft marketing lead Albert Penello told Kotaku on Sunday.

“You can take an OG, a 360, a One, and an X, system link them together with four discs, and play LAN parties,” he said.

And if you want the true OG Xbox experience even on the Xbox One, there will be a replica of the original “Duke” controller on shelves this holiday season.

Microsoft has only confirmed one Xbox title coming to Xbox One: 2003's Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge. The original version of that game allowed you to play eight-player dogfights across four consoles.

“Who’s going to do that? Very few people. It’s just rad,” Penello said.

I admit I know nothing of the technicalities of this, but... As the original Live is no more but the games support system link, would it be feasible for MS to set up a facility to do a sort of virtual system link, but over Xbox Live via the Friends list?

Since OG Xbox games are going to get a whole lot more popular, I don't know why they don't just switch Live back on.

Yes I'm aware it's not as simple as that, but what's the point in doing all this for half a product. Then they can work on Chaos Theory.
