    Hopefully Skyrim Xbox 360 version becomes backwards compatible, I started it years ago and never got back to playing it
    This!

    I finished most of it, but would like to revisit to mop up and do the DLC which I bought and never started.

    Fingers crossed

    Damn it! Yakuza games are like bananas to me. I know they are good, convenient, and healthy, but no matter how many times in my life I force myself to eat them, I just do not like them. I want to like the Yakuza games so badly, and there are so many, and they are doing awesome jobs with the remasters. I just don't enjoy them.
    I thought Yakuza 0 was pretty meh. Wanted to drop the series after that. Then decided to give Kiwami 2 a chance and it didn't disappoint. Far less and shorter cutscenes, better graphics, better fighting, better upgrade system, less plot holes and stupid/obvious plot twists.
    Wow I think that's an unpopular opinion but I'm no stranger to those! I think yakuza kiwami is the best one in the series (the first one)
    Wait until you play 3. The graphics for 3, 4, and 5 are nowhere near what Kiwami 1, Kiwami 2 and 6 are, as those were recent/actual remasters to the core. 3 4 and 5 are just simple ports up a console, so you can tell how old they look/play.

    Either way, 3 is the best for sure. The story is so great and it's such a great middle piece to the series.
    I can't tell if this is a troll or not laugh

    Yakuza???? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH
    Devil cracked the earthly shell, foretold she was the one. Blew hope into the room and said "You have to live before you die young"

    Honestly thought about buying Skyrim during the last Black Friday sale and then I remember MS owns Bethesda and realized this day would come eventually.

    Still holding out hope we get Hitman 2

    Hell yeah on more Yakuza! I played a lot of 5 on the PS3 a few years ago.

    hope Among Us will be crossplay
    It should be, as Steam and mobile are cross play
    Too much salt everywhere...

    Excellent news, been waiting for awhile to play Yakuza 6... I wish they released physical versions too, I have all of them on PS2 and PS3, except 5.

    I am so overwhelmed by GP that at this point I just like to play Apex legends all day
    I sometimes wonder, I'm hunting achievements or they're haunting me...

    I'll admit, I played Yakuza 1 and loved it but went off the second one as I didn't want to get into it knowing I might never be able to see the future games.
    Well, with this I'll get back to the second game!

    Super exited for Yakuza. Just finished Kiwami 2. It sucks that I just bought these games for PS4 last week since I didn’t know they were coming to Xbox. I’ll keep them for my collection.

    Starting to hate Game Pass. There are too many good games coming to the service and not enough time to play them cry

    No he's right, the story of 3 is like WOW. Real members of the Yakuza approve of the game no joke.

    The story is incredible and it was just an amazing experience, like the one thing 360 users should have been jealous of PS3. (Other than that fuck the PS3 the 360 is king)

    But yeah 3,4,5 are straight PS3 ports so graphically they look worse but they still play fantastic!

    Exactly! 3 is an absolute masterpiece of not only games, but the Yakuza friends. I am insanely happy that Xbox gets to experience this with us PS users!
