Phantom Breaker: Battle GroundsY'see, this is interesting because there is (or was) a rumor that there would be additional DLC (making the game 1000G), but all there is to go on is the PS4 version which has some extra stuff. No word from MAGES about a 360 update.

Great game too, but disgusting netcode.

I've had the preview dashboard for a while and Mass Effect did not auto-download for me back when it was part of the initial 20 or so titles for preview members.

meh, not too exciting IMO. I still do not know if I will move any of my games to the One.
Welcome to TA, where stats are made up and some achievements do not matter.

Great list if you're into a giant list of arcade games, not that it's a bad thing, but the promised games aren't even here....

Pretty mediocre.. I want to see more AAA titles being listed.

I was hoping to see more EA titles that would then be used as part of the vault. Mostly Arcade crap.

JamP0und32 said:Can someone explain the delisted arcades? Golden axe and pinball fx being the culprits. They'd need to be on a marketplace to do this surely? I'm hoping this means we can purchase them again but maybe that's me being optimistic.I just hope it's not a typo and they mean Golden Axe: Beast Rider. I would like to see some delisted love.

I have a bunch of those on PAL discs, anyone know if they will work in an US bought Xbox One? I know XO is supposed to be region free anyways...

If they made Golden Axe backwards compatible, I hope they do that for other delisted games, especially Midway games like Joust, Robotron 2084, and Smash TV.
Maybe not a True Story, but Truly a Story.

I am happy that Halo: reach will be going up in December but still hoping it will get released on HMCC with a new achievement list

Just to add some info if you hadn't already.

On the XBOX 360, is now showing in the game catalog the legend

"(+) XBOX ONE"

And if you go to the game info cn_X button it will in the option to "play on Xbox One".

I know theres some excited people, and it is cool but a huge part of me feels like this should have been done from the get go, just like the 1 tb console...This is how it should have came I think.

Maybe patches for fixes if you're lucky, but not much more than that.

I like the list, sad to not see more AAA titles from the get go but I won't complain. This is a free service that Microsoft did not have to do. I know I'm going to revisit some games that I haven't played in a while. Thanks Microsoft!

I really wish the starting titles were better, and maybe had things like Metal Gear Solid, Saints Row, Mass Effect 2-3, etc, because this starting list is really dang weak.

But if Halo: SA is backwards compatible, and it's already on the One, then maybe games with Defnitive/Remastered Editions could make it over, which would be nice for Borderlands 2-PS.

Great to see Stick of Truth there. It was one of the last digital games I bought for the 360 and I never got around to finishing it. Also didn't finish GoW Judgement and Just Cause 2, so those inclusions are great.
