    Yeah, I hope they resume the program sooner rather than later, because there are still a lot of games that need to see BC.
    Warmest regards, TwistedTB.

    Interesting that many here interpreted the BC's team shift to Scarlett as a hiatus instead of a permanent end to future OG/360 titles being added to the back catalog. I sincerely hope this is the case because the BC program is one of my favorite things about Xbox.

    However, I thought the Inside Xbox announcement, the official article on Xbox Wire, and Phil Spencer's interview with GiantBomb made it pretty clear this really is the last batch of OG and X360 games to be made playable on Xbox One and by extension, Scarlett.

    Time will tell, I guess.

    From the article:

    "Also, this is the last batch of backward compatible games coming to Xbox One — so while Scarlett may pick up the torch at some point, those who do not make the upgrade won't be seeing any more 360 or Originals made available on the One - unless Microsoft decide to backpedal on that position."

    I never said the TA newshounds claimed otherwise. I was referring to the sentiment seen in some of the comments here and remarks people have made on various friend feeds.

    Is Too Human one of those {#}it'll be delisted but you can still download it later from your history{#} removals, or a {#}download it and keep it on your storage device because it's gonna be proper gone{#} removal?
    I would assume the former. The latter is very rare.
    Considering the game's unusual circumstances, I figured it'd be one of the few that would be completely removed.
    My opinions are often unpopular and acerbic.

    Currently too human is still free along with 2 themes and the armor set. Very strange for this game to come back from the dead and all of this stuff free of charge.

    That's because due to lawsuits, they can't legally sell it so if they want to distribute it, they have to give it away for free.

    You missed the point completely.

    No I haven't missed the point at all. In fact I dare say that you have no clue as to what the point you are trying to make is.
    Achilles8249 why would you respond to me using the quote section ?
