    What percentage of X360 games are now BC Dave? I think you mentioned it on last weeks podcast?
    Well we got '2315' X360 games as tracked on TA. As of now we have '465' of them registered as Backwards Compatible.

    Making a current BC percentage of %20.

    Great game, though as others have said, a bit rough around the edges. Long since played & beaten it.

    Too bad there are no plans for a remastered "cleaned-up" version, although that would very likely damage the overall experience.

    The story & characters in this game were simply amazing.

    This is bizarre, I was just thinking to myself a day or two ago how awesome it would be if this was backwards compatible, log on today and all my prayers have been answered!

    Or a non completely broken PC port, that'd be nice too.

    And then when you figure in how many games won't go BC due to peripherals (Kinect, music games, etc.), you get a decent bump to the BC percentage out of what we would actually get.

    Agreed. It's taking them a while but I think that's a pretty impressive figure to be added to the program. People complain about a perceived lack of first party games but it's initiatives like this that make the Xbox an amazing ecosystem in my opinion.

    You actually can't rule out all music games. Xbox 360 USB microphones work with the Xbox One, so the only issue would be music licensing. It's unlikely some of these companies would bother going through that but I personally would never say never.

    Such a polarizing game, you either enjoy it or don't.
