    Okay, seriously?! I've never even heard of The Cave, and yet here we are, still waiting for the Modern Warfare series to get backwards compatibility! Could we at least get the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection in the program?! angry

    I don't really have a reason to play Comix Zone and Altered Beast again, but I never did get around to starting the cave. I bought it on sale some time way back. Maybe I will finally play.

    Arcade titles on the X1? Why not bring BC to one of the best XBLA games of all time: Mark of the Ninja.

    Really hoping we get Charlie Murder, Dust: An Elysian Tale, Sonic Adventure 2, Frogger, and Black Light: Tango Down sometime soon for Arcade BC games......

    I mean, I'd also settle for Bastion and just pick it up day one.

    Glad to see a bunch of fan favorites coming over though, the more games the merrier!

    Oh my god people put all the blame to the pulishers.
    Let's see...

    Square Enix has announced that they signed for Hitman Absolution for BC and they said it's up to MSFT to release.

    Activision has finished CoD Black Ops and it's ready for release, but it's up to Microsoft to release it.

    The sale goes for Skate 3, Bioshock Infinite, Bioshock, Bioshock 2.

    If you see the list of publishers and partners decreasing don't blame the publishers, just blame MSFT and their slow progress they have.

    DeadlyName007 said:Activision has finishedActivision didn't finish shit. It's all MS that does the emulation coding.
    Dozens of potential reasons exist for why a game isn't released to the public.
    -They're still testing stuff
    -A glitch or bug may still be present (imagine all the shit MS would get if a players console, profile or save got messed up)
    -They're waiting for the right opportunity (gotta avoid those game droughts)

    Jappe XBA said:Out of all games I don't think a lot of people were waiting games like Comix Zone and Altered Beast to become BC...

    edit: and looks like I was wrong :D
    I know right. It was cool that they brought them to the 360 for the nostagia factor but I really don't see the need to bring them onto the One so soon as well. Titles like these should be bottom of the barrel due to them being so many generation old. It's games from the 360 era that should be getting the BC treatment, not retro classics from the last century.
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!
