    I have a Sony 51 inch HDTV, that takes native 720p signals and downconverts them to 480p! Can you believe that? Luckily, the XBOX 360 has it's own internal scaler, and it can convert 720p to 1080i internally before sending the signal to your TV. So if you have a TV that will display 1080i but not 720p, you're in luck.

    Oh come on now, that list will grow. I bet by the time the Xbox 360 is released, over 85% of all Xbox games will be supported. Even if there are some problems at lauch, I bet you can download updates of the emulator.
    <Evan_G> i keep my games in an inaccessable crate where i can't play them

    That's what everyone kept saying. I'm sure Mircosoft can come up with a better method to fix this. Plus like you said, there could be a patch update to correct this.

    I'm just really ticked off right now. Typical of Mircosoft to do this kind of thing from time to time.

    So we'll just wait and see. I'm just blowing off some stupid steam because I just don't like the direction it's heading. Sure I like the 360, yet what really makes me worried is do you know how many customers I am gonna have to tell this too? after we have promised them so much? Since I work for GameCrazy afterall.

    Only 11 days left, will they know the feedback from the public on this issue? Probably. Only time will tell however

    That list will for sure have to grow. That was hardly even a list. lol. I'm sure there will be software updates and there will be more and more games added.

    You know what's a trip?


    During the time I had a PS2, I probably played a PS1 game on there maybe twice. If that. Whenever I wanted to play a Playstation game, I would always play it on a regular Playstation.

    But I was actually looking forward to the backward compatibility of the 360. I was hoping that we would be able to play some of the big new releases. Actually, the more interesting issue, is not which games will work, but of the games that do work, how good do they work? Will it be a seamless experience? Will you know that your playing your games on a software based emulator? Or will it be smooth, and you won't even realize that your playing it off a emulator?


    It's definitely going to be an interesting thing to watch. The cool thing is, that some games can actually be improved. Playing the original Halo in 16:9 and 720p is going to be pretty damn fun. Anybody got a copy of Halo 1 for super cheap?


    At the end of the day, I really could give a rat's ass about BC. The only BC that I give a crap about, is that old XBOX game BC, that got delayed indefinitely. Hopefully that game will end up on the 360. But Backwards Compatibility was never a huge issue with me. I'm buying a 360 to play 360 games. I sold everything XBOX, and right now I'm looking for a used copy of Halo 1, because I want to play it in 16:9 and 720p. But that's about it. I'm going to be too wrapped up in a large number of 360 games to even really care about BC.



    It's definitely going to be interesting to see how the XBOX 1 games are going to run on the 360, though. I'll be curious about it.

    from the xbox site link:
    The folks at Xbox® are working hard to add more of your favorite games to this list, so check back often for the latest updates.


    and the interview:
    Xbox.com: So what are the 200+ games that are backward compatible as of today?

    Todd Holmdahl: It's simple: You can log onto Xbox.com/games for an up-to-date list of original Xbox games that run on Xbox 360. There are more than 200 titles as of today, and we will update you on a regular basis after launch.

    How is Microsoft "fucking" anybody? Sure, this list isn't as large as many hoped but as was already said, it'll grow in time. Besides, if you own many games not on this list then you obviously already own an original Xbox. So play your favorite unsupported games on the Xbox that you already own. No big deal, problem solved.

    Well they have less than 2 weeks to get that 85% you seem so sure about.

    Ghouls & Ghosts - Hey, you work at GameCrazy, how many 360's are you guys getting it?


    Reason I ask, is because I have a 360 reserved at two different GameCrazy locations. At one of them, I'm the very first person on the list, and I've paid completely in full. So I don't think there is any chance that I won't get that one. Some dude said his GameCrazy is only getting 4 of them, which is pretty ridiculous, but I consider that an absolute worst case scenario, and even then, I would still get mine considering I'm first.


    But the other GameCrazy that I have one on hold at, I'm like the 21st person. I guess I'm going to have to check in with them next week and see if they heard anything.

    Good question, because I heard today that some stores are only getting about 7 to 10 per store.

    Was thinking the same thing. Sega gave that system a bit of street cred. early in the consoles life. They made a Panzer Dragoon Xbox! It's a shame but i'm keeping my Xbox anyway.

    Did anyone here really expect 80-90% backward compatibility on the 360 at launch? I'm surprised this many games are BC. Just as long as I'm able to play Top Spin, I'll be happy.

    OH SHIT! NO TOP SPIN??? BURN IN HELL MS!!!

    Surprise! Well to me at least, I really was expecting the list to include Halo, Halo 2, Fable and nothing else.

    I think if anyone has any questions they should read the Q&A:
    http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/back...tibilityqa.htm

    If anyone's wondering why there are so many bad games on the list its fully explained that games that while working on the "top" games they found that other games that used similar technology also worked. I think of it like this. They worked to get San Andreas working and then GTAIII and Vice City for the most part were compatible since they all use the Renderware engine.

    As for why there's certain games missing, well that's quite simple. They want you to buy the 360 version. Burnout Revenge? Madden? And many others.

    For me this list is great news. All those Xbox games that I never got to play (never owned nor wanted a Xbox) I now might be able to try. And at the very least there will be plenty of lower priced games that I can play, instead of the $50/60 360 games that I simply can't afford.

    Hmm, Oddworld: Stranger isn't listed. Actually, neither is the first XBox Oddworld, or Microsoft's own Phantom Dust.

    Well, guess this is better than nothing...and the games will be running in higher resolution, to boot.

    So yeah, I'd rather they get the console out now and keep working on getting games to run. Glad to see Airforce Delta Storm on that list

    Well still though it's a pretty bad list of compatibility

    but it is more games than I thought they would support

    it just proves to me that the 360 is not worth it and will not be worth it anytime soon.

    Every company has to send microsoft the code for there games. There is a chance that sega never sent the code or sent it way to late in the game. So before you say "thats a big fuck you to sega" realize it could be segas fault.


    Though the list is kinda short it will keep getting updated. Im disapointed star wars battlefront 2 isnt there as I was going to buy that also but ill wait now till its on the list..

    here is some more info :
    http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/back...tibilityqa.htm

    i like this one a lot :

    Xbox.com: Will there be any benefits to playing original Xbox games on my Xbox 360 console?

    Todd: Absolutely. One of the great things about gaming on Xbox 360 is the satisfaction of knowing that every game will be playable in high definition. We are now proud to reveal that this extends to the original Xbox games as well. Every original Xbox game will be upscaled to 720p and 1080i, and will take advantage of Xbox 360’s anti-aliasing capabilities, delivering a picture that is clearer and crisper than anything available on Xbox.
    and another great feature :

    Xbox.com: Can you play games cross-platform? Specifically, can I play Halo 2 on Xbox 360 with my friend who plays it on Xbox?

    Todd: Yes. You can play backward compatible original Xbox games cross-platform from Xbox 360 to Xbox. Personally, I can't wait to see the first Xbox vs. Xbox 360 Halo 2 clan matches pop up on Xbox Live.

    It's a sad day when we get a BC list before an official list of launch day titles.

    Default This does not suprise me at all, but for customers it will

    First to answer the save question: There is no way of transferring your save to the 360 which means that you have to start over if you want to play your Xbox games on your 360. That in itself is a big "F you". As for the games, I too am very very dissapointed that games like Battlefront I, or II are not on the list at first. Again, I understand that not only will the list be updated, but that it depends on the 3rd parties sending in their code. I UNDERSTAND, BUT THE AVERAGE CUSTOMER WONT. I have heard so much misinformation in the last two weeks being told to customers, that it is crazy.

    Yeah, this really sucks. There is absolutely no way in hell I'm going go thru and beat Metal Slug 3 again. The first time was hard enough.

    FTW.

    More than I expected, but I hope they make Psychonauts compatible! That's the only xbox game I will care to ever play again that's not on that list.
