    You know that's not a bad list for starts. I doubt it will help any DP members as we're bound to have several games that aren't on the list, but it may help out more casual players...

    Cheers,

    The way I see it, the cup is half full, not half empy.

    I was honestly only expecting about 20 or so titles to be backwards compatible by launch. By my count, 19 of my Xbox games will play on the 360, and that's not a bad start. Yes, I do wish Panzer Dragoon, Unreal Championship 2, MechAssault and other games would play on it, but give it time. I believe they will add to the list of compatible games after launch. I don't know what some of you are expecting. Be happy they got this many games compatible by launch. A true "fuck you" would be a list of 15 games and that's all. They are trying, nobody can deny that. The fact that you can play Live enabled Xbox games on the 360 against Xbox users is reassuring.

    No one bitched when the Snes didn't play NES games, or when the Dreamcast didnt' play Saturn games. Backwards compatibility is something of a luxury in my eyes. Just because the PS2 has it does not make it an industry standard.

    I'm happy with the 360 compatibility list for the time being as long as they keep their promise of adding more games to the list.

    Here's to hoping this list will grow, as some people would like to conserve space by having the 360 as opposed to the original (one of those people would be me). As of now, only 3 games I own are in that list (Darkwatch, NGBlack, Fable). Many mainstream titles appear to be currently ignored, so it's not just us that are going to be pissed off come launch day.

    honestly the xbox 360 is looking amazing.... the xbox is filled with shooters so I am not a fan of the console but 360 is getting much better games.. I am totally in love with the system.

    I suppose this will be one advantage of having to wait for the console
    to launch here in Aus, the list should grow to hopefully incorperate Street fighter Anniversary collection!

    I wonder if this list is small due to Region differences in certain game code? Having the console releasing worldwide might mean they where only able to get certain games to work across all regions.?
