I will have to take a look at the BC list to see if there is any titles that I'd want. Be nice to get some arcade games for a couple bucks.

I'm hoping they add a bunch of games to the BC list at the same time.

Also DLC sale would be great

Hoping for borderlands 2 season pass. The weird thing that happened with me was when i played the first game on xbox one (i've won it through games with gold) and somehow i had all dlcs but i haven't bought none of themclap. Sadly it didn't happen with the second game.

BL2 Season pass was on sale a few weeks ago. I remember because I usually never buy DLC but I made an exception because Borderlands

Syberia 1 and 2 are looking interesting.
Syberia 1 was the only one made BC so far, if I'm not mistaken. I was kind of waiting on that one as well since 3 was coming out. (I ended up just firing up my 360 and knocking it out)

Well, here's to hoping toast

FYI, there are 373 BC games as of my post. So 73.7% of the games on the list will be on sale. Not bad odds if you ask me! smile

I am wishing for the following games to get on sale:

Astropop
Beat n' Groovy
Dirt Showdown
Discs of Tron
Dragon's Lair
Pac-Man Museum
R-Type Dimensions
SVC: Alex Kidd & Co.
SVC: Streets of Rage
Sonic The Fighters
Sonic 1

Sorry, I am on a classic game kick lately...! dance

DLC or RIOT!

But I expect just the usually sales and perhaps a bigger discount.
M$, feel free to proof me wrong :)

I hope for a lot of XBLA and DLCs to go on sale...

Who said "keep hoping in vain, you'll be ending with the usual COD/GTA sales"? ^^

AFAIR...

BL1 had all the DLC bundled with it when DL'd as a BC game on the One, though the DLC is not free for regular gamers on a 360.

BL2/BL:TP-S [360 versions] do not however have any way to get the DLC for free because all the DLC is included in the Handsome Collection on the One.

Damn, I just got some arcade games which are bc for the full price like Hardwood Backgammon, Hearts, Guardian Heroes and SEGA Bass Fishing roll. These games were never or rarely on sale. I wish I had waited a little longer but let's see what the current sale will offer us.

The Borderlands Triple Pack comes with all the DLC for all 3 games on discs and it's very cheap. I bought it for $30 last year, but it's down to $20 at Walmart now. $30 for a 6 disc set is a steal, let alone for 20

So if Skate 3 has the servers shut down, will they be available again when it goes BC?

It's already BC and they only get fixed if the developer decides to fix them. Unfortunately going BC doesn't fix broken achievements or servers

I hope this ends up being as awesome as it sounds. I'll definitely grab anything that I currently own on disc if the price is low enough.
Why would you purchase another copy when you already have it on disc.
So you don't have to put in a disc.
Yea disc drives are the biggest failures on the new consoles plus its 2017 does anyone buy CD's? Makes no sense its a digital world.
