360 Back-Compat Updated Again 36

Despite news many months ago that they weren't going to be doing much in the way of updating anymore, there's a new raft of old games that you'll be able to play on your Xbox 360. Some of the highlights include: "JSRF: Jet Set Radio Future, MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf, Project Gotham Racing 2, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams"

    It's just a marketing ploy by Micro$oft so they can say "look at us & all the games you can play through xbox live."

    When you're done talking out of your ass, you might take a second and re-read (or just plain read) TFS.

    These are backwards-compatibility updates. They allow you to play original Xbox games on the 360. So no, it's not a marketing ploy, it's called customer satisfaction. They make no money by providing these updates, they do it for gamers who own Xbox games and still want to play them.

    I can understand not RTFA, but for frak's sake - RTFS!

    WooT! I never actually finished Morrowind, and I was severely disappointed by Oblivion's auto-scaling system. I think I'm going to go back and enjoy the game - now in glorious HD with full-screen anti-aliasing. This is one of several games I was really hoping they'd eventually get working. I'm glad to see my patience was rewarded.
