Today marks another odd trio of titles joining the Xbox backwards compatibility program. As of this afternoon, Bound by Flame
, The Maw
and Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown
are all bonafide back-compat games.
Virtua fight me!
I've also taken this opportunity to do a little investigative TA journalism. While Bound by Flame
was just on sale in August
, Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown
and The Maw
haven't seen a sale price since 2014
, and in the case of The Maw
, in the aforementioned 2014 sale, it was only available as a part of the Twisted Pixel bundle
. Both of these titles are long overdue for a sale — and backwards compatibility seems like the perfect occasion to provide such a bargain.
