So, while I'd love to simply type them all out, I'm going to be quick about it and make it easy on myself by just posting a link for all of you that can put it better than I could anyway. To name a few though, now all the Splinter Cell games are on there (the original trilogy from OG Xbox), the Perfect Dark games (original and Zero), as well as Kameo, have been enhanced to name a few. Anyways, here are some more goodies. I'm currently downloading Syndicate. I never thought, at the beginning of this generation, that I'd be so excited for back compat. I was someone that said 'psh, don't need it; I can just hook up my old consoles if I wanted to play those games'. I was wrong. Excited to replay a lot of these games and maybe buy Enslaved which I never played but always kind of wanted to. I'm bummed out that no more back compat games will come to this generation though.
I am really buoyed up by some the games they have been adding to the service - seems like a pretty good mix.
Has there been any confirmation that these backwards compatible games will come to the PC version eventually? After a quick search I can't seem to find a on the record mention. As someone who spent a lot of time on the Xbox and the 360 but doesn't have a One, this was something I was hoping for - especially with some of the more recent additions. I'm happy to try out the PC beta but I think my interest might start to wane if these games never make off the console version.
@ntm: Yeah, it could be me, but I thought I remembered it being hinted that the new Xbox app for PC would make all that backwards compatibility possible. But I can't find anything that suggests this so it might be a case of mis-remembering. I guess if the streaming service eventually goes the way they suggest, it might just be that they pop up on that.
Fuck yeah, Too Human! Unfortunately, I only play Xbox PC now, and my friend can't manage to get my XBone back to me, so I guess I'll have to wait until Scarlett to play some. Had like 120 hours in the first one. I wrote that review that a few gaming news outlets mistook for Cliff Bleszinski's (since my user name at the time was CliffyB, my favorite industry personality).
