    Always nice to see games added to the program, but it's still amazing how many 360 games I have on disc that aren't BC.

    Between this announcement and watching the Rooster Teeth vid where Geoff and Burnie face each other in Utopia via Game Room on 360 I am filled with a simmering hatred for not knowing about unobtainables back in't day...

    Damn, you just ruined my day... I never saw that achievement because I was focused on the online component. Now I'm gonna have to complete yet another game... shock

    Battlestations Pacific looks tempting since it can be double boxed now with 360/one for the mp achievements. Probably would need to look for 2 physical copies since it seldom seems to go on sale in the store.
    It was a GWG in September 2015, if you picked it up back then.
    Thank you for this! Didn't even realize I already had it, makes it even more enticing/convenient now.

    My memory isn't great either. I use the TA Game Collection feature to track what I own and how I own it.

    Go to Battlestations: Pacific Achievements, and from the Game drop down, select {#}Add to my Game Collection{#}.

    Then you can check out your entire Game Collection here (can search and filter) - wolfsburgraz's Game Collection
    Thanks for the suggestion! I went through my X1 and X1BC games recently but never gave my physical and digital X360 collection the treatment. I should spend the time and do it.

    There are a lot of games I would like to see come to back compat someday.

    - Dynasty Warriors series
    - Need for Speed series (as mentioned by others)
    - Project Gotham 3 & 4 (would love a remaster of this entire series honestly)
    - Forza Motorsport 1
    - Jet Set Radio Future
    - Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
    - Formula 1 series (only 2012 done to my knowledge)
    - Crackdown 2 (hoping for this one around the launch of 3)
    - Test Drive Unlimited series
    - Two Worlds series
    - Asura's Wrath
    - Dragon's Dogma (I know there's a remaster but I hardly played this one and don't want to buy the up-res)

    Most of these are long shots but we can dream!

    1942 Joint Strike
    Aliens: Colonial Marines
    Alone in the Dark
    Alpha Protocol
    Amped 3
    Amy
    Anna - Extended Edition
    Arkadian Warriors
    Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel
    Assault Heroes
    Asura's Wrath

    That's just what I have under "A" which doesn't included peripheral based games (AC/DC) or Games with a variation on the One (Alien: Isolation). I don't see why any of them couldn't be made BC, with the exception of maybe Aliens which might be a licensing issue.

    Aliens shouldn’t have a licensing issue considering AVP just went BC. Alpha Protocol might be a problem because it was pulled from the Xbox marketplace. Just my opinion, of course.

    I see a lot of love for battlestations. Don't you all find the controls make it basically unplayable or is it just me?
