    Interesting. I didn't think they would make this backwards compatible after just re releasing them.

    From what I can tell the JP stacks work but not the German stack.

    If you exclude all of the regional variants there are under 300 games backwards compatible according to the official list, so I went with this more accurate number (as, as much as achievement hunters love playing 5 different versions of the same game, it's not a "different" game, just a different version).

    I only have 36 more games that need to go BC before I can finally put my good old 360 out to pasture.

    This is unexpected. Am very happy with this, having both 360 and xb1 versions clap

    It doesn't always work for everyone right away. Major Nelson, Aaron Greenberg, and Mike Ybarra all announced it today.

    If u look on wiki, it lists 303 different games and not one of them are the regional varients

    Interesting, as the official list, from Major Nelson's blog, has 293.

    Oh, I see what the problem is... the list of Wikipedia backwards compatible games lists games that have been confirmed to be coming to the program, but have not yet arrived. A lot of these have "TBA" next to them as a release date. You may use a different regional version of Wikipedia, so who knows if we are even looking at the same list.

    Edit: I just ran the official list again and got a different number... I have no idea what is going on with those columns or if they just updated it or something. Either way, I'm not going to be picky about the difference between "over 250" and over "300" if the number is 303. Next time I'll just say "a lot." laugh

    But what will people complain about in every BC article now? laugh

    Seriously though it was great of them to do it in a single batch, would love to see more series dumps of this nature in future BC announcements.

    I'm pretty sure a lot of Call of Duty games will be requested next.

    Yeah I was gonna say, wasn't there a guy that would constantly post in every BC article about how it's a travesty that Bioshock is not BC yet?

    Now he can finally save his breath for a more worthy cause. Or he'll pick another series to bitch about.

    Sometimes you need a hard reset too. I've had to hard reset for almost every BC announcement.

    Noticed the previously delisted dlc now appears to be available digitally. Is this the case for Bioshock 2 Korea as well?
