    Awesome!! I'm loading up Phantasy Star II--IMHO, one of the greatest games of all time if not the greatest.

(I only own Sonic 1&2 on XBLA)The only Sonic game I own digitally is Sonic CD. I put the disc in, accepted the update and now Sonic 1, 2 and 3 are installing. Didn't get Sonic & Knuckles oddly enough but that's three free games so I'm not going to complain. Awesome.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

    Commence the bitching

    1) when are they releasing more BC games, fuuugggg I can't wait any longer...
    2) where the hell is "MY" game ..... I've been waiting to play it on the One
    3) these current games are garbage, Xbox One BC is junk, I'll head over to PS4
    4) MEH, I could careless (yet here I am posting my two cents)


    Also as a note, I can't buy Phantasy Star 2 on the Xbox site. it tells me it's bundle only, and when I click it, it just goes to the bottom of the page.

    I wish we could have the phantasy star episode 1 and 2 that ws available for gamecube... I miss my old level 200 recast, fonewearl and humar. I was given a stolen copy of the game months before its actual console release for gamecube and ended up selling a lot of weapons and mags that I had found to other people for a total of approximately $20,000 at like 12 or 13 years old. Probably the game with the greatest nostalgia to me personally. Good times....

Might be worth a try.Ok I just tried it. Popped the Genesis collection disc in and it fired straight into Sonic The Hedgehog strangely. It then said there was an update for this game (around 500mb). I started the download, quit out of Sonic and went into queue and low and behold, standalone Golden Axe is downloading!

    So I can confirm that is true. :)
    Wow someone must have majorly screwed up over at Microsoft, it'd be all of the 16 bit console games including Comix Zone, Altered Beast & Gunstar if Sega wrote off on it, all or nothing or they'd get endless complaints - I'd say grab them whilst you can folks, but if/when they deactivate the disc trigger they'll be unplayable :,(

    odd they added Dig Dug when they just released the new Dig Dug. maybe they thought people would complain about already owning once and not wanting to buy it again.

    I can confirm you get some BC games from the Sega Ultimate Genesis collection. I got Golden Axe, Sonic 2 and a 3rd game that I don't know what it is added to my queue.

    why is more bad? sheesh it's a 360 emulator, it should just be it's own app on the xbox one and run anything the 360 can. we should be able to run the entire 360 dashboard within the xbox one.

    Until I see the Dishwasher games I know they're nowhere near done. The developer wanted that game released immediately and offered to do all the work.

Why would they care if people sell their 360s secondhand?

    I also popped in my disc. It is installing the sonic games and Golden Axe. I had already downloaded Phatasy Star from the store as I owned it stand alone.

    That is cool, I do not know you could do that.
    I didnt know that either although I cannot find the Megadrive/Genesis Collection I thought I'd try that with the Dreamcast Collection and Crazy Taxi is currently getting installed on the Xbox One :D

Could you people do some freaking research? There's a LOT of technical and legal things going on behind the scenes. Game A licensed it's soundtrack to be used on Xbox 360 and PS3, so they can't just port that one over. Game B, same for the cinematic technology used for their game, and Game C's engine was licensed.

    You can't just decide to bring an entire backlog of games over to a new console unless these development contracts were made future-proof. Which, usually isn't the case.

    i know there's the licensing to take into account. i just don't see why you need an extra 500 MB for every 360 game. i didn't say every game should be ported, but just meant that they should all work with one single emulator.

    i do think that if you own a disc and a console that will play it, then that's yours to do what you want. if you can make a non BC original xbox one game work on a 360, cool. if someone figured out the 360 "emulator" and hacked it to run on windows 10, that'd be nifty. though i'm sure there's some "walls" they'd have to get past first. anyway just random thoughts, i wouldn't really use that, i'd rather have legit online achievements, than risk a ban.

    I'm with QuickMythril on this..

    Anyway... SUPER excited about Runner2... this was a GREAT game!! And, I usually don't like rhythm games. And, I think I'm definitely going to buy Phantasy Star II now.. haven't played it since the Sega days and it's only 5 bucks.. keep the BC titles coming!
