    If so, is it possible to buy from the XONE Store? or would I need a physical disc?

    Thanks
    I'll check the regional variants when I get home. I own them all but duke nuke em is already in the post

    I got The Bureau for free from a friend of mine and I enjoyed it way more than I expected! Great game.

    I'm one of the very few that has been waiting for duke nukem to be backwards compatible. Also holding for a sale on the dlc... but might just bite the bullet today

    Honestly once I saw the titles this week for sale, I had a feeling The Darkness would become BC - very happy about this, looking forward to finishing it on BC.

    As BC makes the games run smoother, Duke Nukem might actually be playable

    Assuming they made the DE version backward compatible you can play it on the Xbox One as it is region free (well except for China). However you will need a German XBL account and German payment method and possibly a VPN to Germany to buy it from the Xbox 360 store. A disc from eBay can be easier.

    Darkness JP can be added to the list.

    Played through The Bureau this year and it is way better than its reviews were when it was initially released, I really enjoyed it for what it is.

    Finally have The Bureau on BC! Between that, Kingdoms of Amalur and FF13 trilogy my wishlist for BC has been fulfilled quite a lot lately.

    Now I just have to actually finish them all smile

    Is Duke Nukem Forever (JP) now BC? It didn’t say it was, but I thought I’d ask.
    Usually when a game goes BC, all regional variants do as well. But it sometimes takes a few days or weeks. The only exception I know of is Symfony of the Night; last I heard, the JP version was not backwards compatible.

    For reference, all BC games are region-free when played on Xbox One, even if they were region-locked on 360.
