    Like a few others have said, I'm waiting for a few more of my back catalogue to go BC before I can properly box up the 360, but with each one that does, I get the bad feeling I'm gonna be left with a handful that won't make it for one reason or another. Come on Kingdoms of Amalur, Dark Arisen, Dragon Age Origins & Street Fighter 4.

    I think less than half of the 360 games I have left to play are BC. Surprised Just Cause isn't, since the second one is.

    About time lol, now come on deadspace.
    2 and 3? The first one is backwards compatible.

    I deleted all of my BC games off of my 360, and redownloaded all of my non-BC purchases; I suddenly have 90 GB free.

    If the framerate is unlocked on all 3 games, is there any sort of improvement in performance?

    not sure how the dlc is going to work - just installed bioshock 2 (korean), and when I went to manage game, all 4 dlc's were available (in reality just the mp with rebirth should have been available).

    When I go to play the game, it is indeed the Korean version, but none of the dlc seems to work.

    So not sure if it just sees that Skelix owns (as I bought the international all DLC) and then sees a Bioshock 2 and is giving me access to it, or if it's free, or if we can only dl the international versions of the dlc.

    I'm installing Japan version right now, which shouldn't have any dlc, let's see if in manage game what it says!

    But what will people complain about in every BC article now? laugh
    Well now it will be:
    Saints Row 1/2/3
    Darkness 1/2
    The Tom Clancy games ie HAWX, Future Soldier, GRAW2
    Skate 2
    AC Rogue, Revelation, Brotherhood, Liberation and III
    Fable Anniversary
    Blops II or MW2
    The remaining Halo games.

    I feel like these will all be added at some point, so reasonable list to wait for. Also a number of them were announced for BC at some point.

    ok after installing japanese bio 2, and going to manage game, I already have dlc installed. So even though seems to recognize different versions of bio 2 and install them separately, seems the dlc is just the international dlc and you can install to all the version, but it seems it will only work on international version :(

    Please correct me if I'm wrong someone, on how to install it properly - if I'm doing something wrong.

    Bought the remastered when it was on sale, could have saved a bit if this would have happened sooner as I had a few from GWG. Oh well can't win them all and I heard the HD quality is worth it so meh.

    So you own the Rapture Metro dlc on the standard 360 version? You installed the Korean version onto xbox one and installed the dlc via manage game. When you go into multiplayer and create a private match are you able to select any of these maps;

    Dionysus Park
    Fighting McDonagh's
    Fontaine Fisheries
    Pauper's Drop
    Siren Alley
    Smuggler's Hideout

    I installed bioshock 1, only achievement left is to complete the game on hard without using vita chambers, but the option to disable them is missing, as is the dlc from the manage game tab and the store. Maybe its already packaged with the game but i dont see the option on the menus, anyone know something about this?

    Bioshite Infinite wont install on my Xbox One. You guys 100% sure it's BC?
    It doesn't always work for everyone right away. Major Nelson, Aaron Greenberg, and Mike Ybarra all announced it today.
    Sometimes you need a hard reset too. I've had to hard reset for almost every BC announcement.
    Bingo. That's what I was going to suggest. Need a hard reset oftentimes for BackCompat, especially right after they're announced.

    This is something that was added in a title update, maybe that TU is missing somehow. Could you check if there are any updates available in the "My games" tab?

    No updates, maybe its still coming. Guess I'll have to try not to die then.

    You can still get it if you reload after dying instead of keep playing from the vita-chamber. The option to disable the chambers is just a safety precaution when aiming for the achievement. You might still need a title update for the achievement to finally pop, but having the checkbox checked is not a requirement for popping it.

    Does this mean the disc version of bioshock (jp) would work since XB1 is region free?

    Yes. I just installed and tested all disc versions. Every stack works.
