theres a reason minecraft 360 version and most halo isnt there, they aint gonna let you transfer games over that they are trying to sell to you again. A bit annoying but i wouldnt expect any different

Decent list, looking forward to seeing more eventually. Odd to not include Sonic & knuckles.

Is there an easy way to bulk switch game saves from local to the cloud on Xbox 360? Been having to do the games manually one by one.

About 30 up there for me disc and digital, but will probably only move digitals over since I'm running out of space on the One already :/

Not a bad starter list.

Maybe I'm crazy (OK, I definitely am, but maybe I'm crazy about this), but didn't they say every Microsoft game would be on the list at launch or something? I thought they gave some sort of launch-or-soon-after date for that.

I know right, no Halo? Pfft!
Calm down, Halo: Reach is already on its way. Unlike Hydro Thunder, I hope. jk

Seriously though, it's a let down not to see the first Crysis there. One of the best FPS experiences I've played on the 360.
To do or not to do. THAT is the question.

I thought the backwards compability would be more about disc games, so many arcade titles in there..

Golden Axe twice? (Golden Axe and Sega Vintage Collection: Golden Axe)
23 games owned (24 after Dungeon Siege 3 comes to GWG) Pretty decent list though.
15 Digital, 5 physical and 3 that i have on both disc and digital

I wonder how the save file is going to work with "Super Meat Boy". The 360 version didn't support cloud storage, so I'm not sure how you'll transfer saves for that.

I knew there was a reason I grabbed all those titles in the Games for Gold. Sweet!

good list imo.

pity fallout3 is there, but not FNV

also, i wonder if DLC stuff has been solved as some tests i did on the beta a few month back showed that some games wouldnt load DLC properly. (Mass Effect 1 for example)

It has been (as of the October preview program update I believe) so any DLC for the games will be available to download as well.

I can see a few things from my digital backlog. I'll be able to clear some space on the 360 soon!

And no Dark Souls. Goddamit, that sucks ass. The one game I was looking forward to and keeping my fingers crossed for.
