    For those that are wondering about the "lock-on" capabilities, my own results are mixed. Blue Sphere, the lock-on for Sonic 1, worked first-time. No luck so far with Sonic 2 or 3.

    Edit: Just realised it might be because it isn't my profile that owns those, but another one on the console.

    Can any of you guys pop in Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection into their Xbox One to see if Phantasy Star II and/or Sonic & Knuckles start to download? I was told the disc allowed you to download the XBLA versions of a few of the games.

    I want to be able to buy backwards compatible games with the money I put on my Xbox One.

    I might finally get Phantasy Star II because of this.

    There is probably a good explanation as to why this is, but I don't understand why they waste time making these random games backwards compatible vs big name games. I just don't understand. I would think more people would buy the big name games vs these games.
    I would be Unstoppable, if not for Law Enforcement and Physics

    I'm pretty excited about Phantasy Star 2, I was hoping they would get around to it. And maybe I'll go back and attempt the Dig achievement again in Dig Dug (last one I need) as well. Say what you want, but the list is steadily growing.

    Mafia II please I need to get DLC

    I take it these are for the standalone arcade games, not for the ones included in compilations (Genesis collection & Namco collection). It doesn't matter to me since I own both versions, but it would be nice to know.
