Rumored games to be included in the first wave of Backewards Compatibility

Xbox One

I don't understand why backwards compatibility is a big deal. It's not like my 360 stopped working, I mostly still play that instead of my Xbox One.

As a tech geek, I am intrigued by the way in which they are doing it this time around than BC 360 -> OGX.

Adding nothing constructive to a thread near you

What exactly is the point of this thread?

Thanks for clearing this up for me. Now it makes much more sense. OTs and fshguys comments seemed to further clarify for me. The initial lack of BC is why I didn't get an One in the first place. And since this list is a hoax anyways, I'm still deterred. But thanks for taking a minute there.

But, it is happening, and there will be a lot of games supported, and all 360 GwG starting this month will be included (that was announced by MS), and the initial list is announced Monday, so, no real reason to use a fake list as a reason to not buy a console...
I'm pretty pleased by the announcement; I had wanted to play Dungeon Siege 3, but it's much more convenient for me not to switch consoles just to do so.
My original 360 finally broke down on me shortly after the One came out, so I've been using the extra 360 of a friend anyway. It would be nice to return it.

I wouldn't call that "significant differences". Most of that "fake" list is on this one. The "differences" are in that there's more titles on this one. No Saint's Row, but whatevs.

Now, to have strange choices to discuss:
Pinball FX - THIS is a completely baffling choice. It's been delisted. Unless they're going to put it back on the marketplace, why? (Side note: I love being one of the few to have completed it)

Disappointed about Fable III not being on the list.

Interesting... Nice list... Wouldn't be interesting to see this compared to what people really wanted...

I thought Splinter Cell on the "fake" list would have been a nice addition.

Rock Star games would have been nice in my opinion. Odd they got one EA game in official list.

78 of the rumored games are NOT on the official list. A 78% variance would be significant to me. Only 22% actually being included would not be "most" to me.

I'm not surprised that most publishers don't want to jump on board of the backwards compatibility because it means they can't sell it to us again on this generation or give it to us as freebies/preorder bonus for the next new game (e.g. Rainbow Six).

You can go get your delisted games right now (like Yaris or Doritos Crash Course 2) by going to your history and re-downloading them. If anything it is FAR easier now because you can see what games are eligible for download on your Xbox One, a feature I WISH existed on the 360 because going through the literally 1000s of items in my history without the ability to search is terrible.

Not a terrible list. I still play the shit out of my 360s though so whatever. The dash on the X1 btw is starting to get a laggy as the x360 dash when I go to my games library, I'm sure this will only increase that enjoyment.

That is why people make fun of you. Because your post is useless.
