When will Microsoft add more games?

I have copies of Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, two games I missed last gen and am itching to try. I just grabbed them out of a clearance bin for cheap hoping they would work on the 360. They don't. Thanks, y'all!

They haven't updated it in a long time, so my best guess would be no. But I would really really really like to see Oddworld: Strangers Wrath on there. I'm a huge fan of the oddworld series, but never owned an xbox, so never got to play it.

They announced they wouldn't be updating it anymore.

I would be guessing that there will be no more updates to BC. I would like to see some more games on the list, but I won't hold my breath.

It will likely be contained in the fall update, there was no actual official announcement stating they had stoped completely.
The announcement was a marketing manager saying it had slowed down but he never officially said it had stopped completely.

Those are the only two games I wanted to buy for BC besides Psychonauts.

That is really terrible, the XBOX library has some very good games...your best shot is probably getting an old Xbox second hand, they are really cheap now

Yeah, I just might do that.
