Rare Replay, the anthology of 30 games spanning 30 years of the studio's history, does offer 10,000 Gamerscore as claimed — if you account for the 7,220 Gamerscore already offered by games that have previously launched on Xbox 360.

Rare's James Thomas, in an interview with Rare Gamer, clarified the 10,0000 Gamerscore claim, acknowledged that Gamerscore previously earned on Rare games that are part of Rare Replay already count toward the total Gamerscore offered. "The benefit of this is that you get to use your existing achievements to get a head start in unlocking the bonus content within Rare Replay," he said.

"The 360 games are as they currently are on the 360, nothing added or taken away," Thomas said.

The achievement-tracking site TrueAchievements counts 150 new achievements worth a combined 2,780 Gamerscore (one is, delightfully, "Do You Have Battletoads?" offering 15 Gamerscore simply for playing that game.)

More remarkably, Thomas says the save files from Rare's previous Xbox 360 titles (Viva Pinata and Perfect Dark Zero are two) can be transferred to the Xbox One collection. "Your saves carry across too, thanks to the wonders of the cloud," he said. "If you saved it up there on 360, it'll be there on Xbox One."

Rare Replay launches on Xbox One August 4. The earliest games it features are Jetpac, Atic Atac and Lunar Jetman, from 1983. The latest are Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts and Viva Pinata: Trouble In Paradise from 2008. For more, see Polygon's preview from E3 2015.

That article is still a little out of date. 50 more achievements have since been added, bring the total to 200.

The collection itself, dismissing all the 360 achievements which you may or may not have already unlocked, offers 4000G of brand new gamerscore.
Great collection it's gonna be fun to play all these titles again. Seriously though I'd love to see Nintendo ditch their console and put stuff like this out on the other 2 consoles, amazballs, I know this won't ever happen but oh to dream.

"Hey buy this game for 10,000s but only if you have ever played the original games" I don't understand how they think you can get 10,000 true gamer score from it then? There reasoning eludes me? Why not just say you'll get 2000 gamer score and it also tracks your 360 game play.

So, if you buy the Rare Replay, and you never played Viva Pinata, and you started playing it on the X1 Collection, every single achievement is available to you to be earned. If you had played it on the 360, and earned 250 gamerscore, then picked it up later on the X1 collection, you would still have 750 gamerscore left available.

But no, you do not have to play it on the 360, you do not need to have played it in the past, and it the X1 is the first game console you have ever owned, then yes, buy this game and you have a full 10,000 gamerscore available.

Does this mean Backwards Compatibility is turned on for non-preview people?

I'm hoping MS has a good plan for helping organize our games.

I calculated I have about 3300 points from the existing 360 games thanks to Viva Pinata.
