FWIW, last year about this time they took over a month off for the holidays, so we'll see if history repeats pretty soon here.

 

And there we have it.

I'm still impressed by how good they've done with this. The library they're going to have for the next Xbox is going to be insane. Just looking over my shelf, I've still got some hidden gems and silly choices I'd like to see go BC. My wish list for 2019 (putting in spoilers so nobody freaks out thinking these ARE being added to BC, lol)

Just a rumor for now, but there has been talk (nothing official, but the usual "a guy at the company told me" thing) that MK9 will be made BC in the weeks leading up to MK11's release.

 

 

That's it for the year. See you in a few weeks.

Why are they holding off some key titles? Plenty of games were MS can make extra revenue streams.

They need permission from the publishers. Some publishers, for whatever reason, don't want their games back compatible. Others may have issues with licensing (be it the property the game is based on, music in the game, or whatever).

Probably going to start to let this thread drift off, disregarding the fact that these forums are pretty dead, it's clear at this point they don't give a shit about back compatibility nearly as much as they used to. Rumors popped up a while back that a chunk of the BC team was moved on to other projects (like Xcloud) and it sure seems like that's the case.

Pretty disappointing. They've done a decent job of getting a lot of games on there, but there's still a ton to go. And don't even get me started on how god-awful the original Xbox support has been.

I'll still update the list occasionally but it's not going to be current all the time.

I know they aren't stopping completely, but they're definitely slowing down.

Yeah, I really thought they would have added something this week considering the giant BC sale and all. But that looks like a big nope.

Final batch of 360 and original XBox games listed now. Also a small batch of new X1X enhancements including:

Banjo-Kazooie
Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts
Banjo-Tooie
Kameo Elements of Power
Perfect Dark
Perfect Dark Zero
Viva Piñata
Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise

They have announced that they're done with back compatibility. Incredibly fucking disappointing.

https://news.xbox.co...-compatibility/

It's going to continue on the next console in some form (and all X1 games will work on the next console), but what that exactly means has not been made clear.

I guess my work here is done.

Not feeling super appreciative when their messaging this whole time has been how they think you should be able to play all of your games on everything you own. Cutting off the back compatibility program ~18 months ahead of time doesn't really seem to reflect that. I understand they are diverting some resources to the new console, but I find it hard to believe that Microsoft is stretched thin by any means.

Sure, there are lots of games, but there are a lot more that didn't make it over that should have. Their support of the original Xbox has been a joke.

Anyway, picked up the last copy of Unreal Championship 2 from my local used game place. Four bucks. Looks like it's up on the store now, along with the rest of the new stuff.

Yeah, I'm honestly shocked we never got Max Payne 3. That really feels like a big one.
