So I know this forum is deader than dead...but--anyone else holding out hope to see Timesplitters 2 (and Future Perfect!) added to XB1 backward compatibility?

Not sure what the chances are, but maybe it's possible? Sure hope it happens--would be great to have a way to play this on a modern TV!

I would like to see all games added. I'd love to play Timesplitters again but it isn't the top of my list.

If Blinx got a second chance, anything can happen. Also how is this a dead forum? Unless you meant the sub-forum for TS2.

I just wish they could modernize the control schemes for old shooters with these re-releases.

I'd like to play Brute Force on Xbox One.

Soldier of Fortune 2 would make me happy but that will never happen.

I mean, that'd be cool. Oh heck, that'd be cool. I was going to add a 'but', but you can buy digitally if it comes, so yeah. Why I was really going to add 'but' in though was that I'd rather have three because I have three on the Xbox. I have two on GameCube. I've been seeing some people (including my brother) not being able to buy Panzer Dragoon Orta off the store.

So does Crytek own the IP, is it up to them?

Yeah I could see it happen. I never thought Battlefront 1 was ever going to be backwards compatible considering it's absence on Steam but there it is.

@ntm I've got both 2 and 3 on the Cube too but would be happy to buy either of them digitally for $10. Easier than digging out my old disks and finding a way to hook up my old system.

@glots I meant this TS2 subforum, only other thread was from 2009.

But yeah, it's true, if Blinx came back, anything can happen.

@dahnosaur: Yes! I have two copies for 8 player matches and am hoping I will not need to rely on OG Xboxes any more.
