I'm sure there's licensing stuff that makes some of these impossible, but I'd love JSRF, Panzer Dragoon, Burnout 3, Shenmue II, TimeSplitters 2, Silent Hill 2 and Freedom Fighters to eventually be added.


Some great games there.

I'd like to add Outrun, Super Monkey Ball Deluxe, Morrowind and Jade Empire to the wish list.

Do you often contemplate the complexity of life?

Yes! I’d love JSRF on backwards compatibility. Hope they do a request thing like they do for Xbox 360 BC

I'd love PGR 1 and 2, but they have licensed cars, licensed music and Bizarre Creations are no more. They're one of the reasons i rebought a 360 recently.

It's a pretty good initial line-up. Annoyingly, the brilliant Sands of Time is the one Prince of Persia game I bought on PS2 instead of Xbox, but I could be tempted to buy it digitally (added today - £8.99). And I'd totally forgotten that I own Dead To Rights, though I'm not particularly bothered about playing it again.

I might have a go at KOTOR, but can't see me investing the time to complete it again. It will be fun to revisit Psychonauts. I was thinking it was going to be a chore to find the disc - it could be in one of many boxes/cupboards - but I must have foreseen its backward compatibility, because it's been right here on the shelf next to me for all these years.

The one I'm really keen to play is Ninja Gaiden. I've got the original, but never got round to buying the Black version. After the rumours of the BC line-up last night I even checked out used prices. I didn't realise until I read this thread that it was already available digitally. That's a definite purchase for me tomorrow (and it's a reasonable £6.75).

Ninja Gaiden. May have to re-buy it.

Link no longer works. Maybe he revealed something he shouldn't have?

EDIT: Working again now.

Albert Penello‏ @albertpenello 2h2 hours ago

OG Xbox games run at 4X resolution on Xbox One S, and 16X resolution on Xbox One X - that's native, NOT upscaled!

Ninja Gaiden: Black on OG supports Widescreen (16:9) display. So not only is it 16x resolution, it's also 60fps and fullscreen!

Maybe I will get a 1X after all.

Next on my BC wishlist: Galleon, Gladius, Gunvalkyrie, Enclave and all the Splinter Cells.

Always wanted to play Black. Wonder if we'll get Burnout 2 + 3 or if the soundtrack means no.

I don't think I ever played the Black version either. At £6.75 it is a must buy imo. :datass:

We created the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program for our fans and we’re thrilled with the response we’ve seen – gamers have spent more than 700M hours playing Xbox 360 games on Xbox One. It’s been quite the journey; the team has worked tirelessly so you can experience your favorite games across generations on Xbox One. Original Xbox classics join more than 400 Xbox 360 games in the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program, which also means we’ll have our largest console launch portfolio ever when Xbox One X releases on Nov. 7.

200 million hours in the last 4 months.

amazing what happens when xbox one has no games.

on a serious note though, I think all of the 360 games I'm currently working through aren't actually BC :x so my trusty 360 is still going strong :wub:

Nice little retro buzz from the initial Xbox interface/logo.

God, I'd forgotten how the intro movie in Psychonauts goes on AND ON. Obviously the cut-scene video quality isn't all that good, but once the game itself gets going, it all looks nicely sharp. 4:3 feels so weird on this setup.
