Automated PM for BC Games?

Feature Requests

Found 9 posts - Go to Last Post


I logged into TA and had 2 PM's stating games I have in my played list are now backwards compatible. I was thinking what a great idea in case you've missed the forum list, don't know were the official list is or just haven't visited for a while and didn't know you could play old games.

I personally thought it was a handy feature although it needs to be more user friendly than theirs if incorporated haha.

Hi there

We have just published news of some of your games that are now backwards compatible on Xbox One:

Mirror's Edge

Click here for all the details.

To unsubscribe from these notifications please change your Backwards Compatibility setting here.
No, please no. That is the worst "feature" TA has shoved down anyone's throat after PMing you when something on your wishlist goes on sale.

Here's the thing, do we need more notifications?

Backwards Compatibility:

Major Nelson Tweets about it
He posts it on his blog
Xbox.com updates to show game a Backwards Compatible
Every single Xbox Community site seems to have a forum tracking it
Those same sites also note on the game's page on their site it is Backwards Compatible
If you own the game digitally, and own an Xbox One, your "Ready to Install" tab increments up one and shows the game's tile.

Just, there are A LOT of ways to find out about backwards compatibility. A LOT. We just don't need more.

Honestly, if BC is truly important to someone, then they should be following certain member of the Microsoft Team on Twitter, since it all gets announced there quickly.

Well TA even gets it wrong said I had The Division and it's now BC. Last I checked it was not released on last generation.
