Another Set of Titles Become Backwards Compatible

    They have been rushing these BC games faster than ever lately. Am I the only one that feels like something big is coming at E3 and they need a lot of games to be BC?

    Its most likely damagecontrol, to avoid that all the E3 articles will be about "empty promises" from last year

    Would be nice to see the Bioshock games backwards compatible.

    They promised 100 at launch, not per month. 100 per month would be the whole library already. Be realistic at least.

    I see over 6000+ votes here. Owned.
    With the exception of Sonic which got 4300+ of your 6000+ points. no one really gives a rats ass for the rest.

    So no, your not really allowed to call "Owned"

    Barring Runner 2 most of those games got almost 1k votes. Phantasy Star 2 got almost 1,400. Those put them in the top 30/31 pages for votes out of 70, so saying nobody gives a rats ass about them is a stretch. Wouldn't really use the term owned though, not for that small of a "victory" there. Still it's more than most any of the Musou genre games seem to have gotten which is kinda impressive for games that are either older or fairly niche.

    I tried the Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection disc and I get the error "This game isn't playable here." There's nothing in the ready to install list. I was able to get Frogger from the Konami Classics Vol. 1 disc but I'm having trouble with this one. Any ideas?

    Have you played the disc under your Gamertag on the 360. For backwards compatible 360 games that I've played on the 360, I'm getting 'ready to install status' on the X1 and I can install them digitally--no disc required--even if the version I played on the 360 was a physical version.

When I clicked on it it prompted for an update and then downloaded all of the games I didn't already own. I'd turn the game on once or twice on your 360 like Allgorythm suggested and then try again. Might help.

    Yes I have played it before on the 360 with my Gamertag - I have all the achievements for it. It installs and plays fine on the 360 but then on the X1 when I choose Install I get that error, can't update it like I could with Konami Vol. 1.

    I did buy XBLA Sonic 1 previously though - tried uninstalling it and still got "this game isn't playable." for the UGC disc

    Yeah that's really weird. When I put it in the drive it read it just fine. I even had Golden Axe and Phantasy Star 2 already installed. I clicked on it to install and it did the rest. Only thing I can assume is that there's something wrong with your disc.
