Me too, I'm not sure how downloaded content and saved games work with this latest announcement.

Interesting take on BC.

"My main issue with it is this: that it aligns the Xbox One with the past right at the time when the console should most be focussed on the future."

This is inane.  BC was the most requested feature by a mile.  It was one of the reasons I considered not buying one initially.  People have dozens, sometimes hundreds of older games and would like their new, powerful system to be able to play them as well.  And now they can - and it's going to drive even more sales.

Fair enough.  At this point in the current generation, I can't imagine going back to play old PS3 games on any regular basis.  I have about 4 games for the PS4 I still need to play, plus whatever comes out in the next few months while I'm playing those.  I never catch up.  Maybe you guys just have a ton more time to play games than I do.

Which games on the Xbox 360 BC list do you plan to play on your Xbox One?

I agree with Rob...  BC was a huge bitch about the new consoles and I have zero time to game, but I enjoy playing some old 360 games sometimes and want that option.  I will now bring my 360 home and play kotor on it here and will finish my lego games on he one at my gf's.  My gf's son will be happy he can play all his Assassins Creed games on the One since the 360 was collecting dust till I hook it up.

I have zero time to game but this was awesome to me.  Plus I can bring the 360 home now and open up some more time I didn't have before.

For me, the older GTAs and Red Dead Redemption are games I pop in from time to time. Plus they don't make NCAA sports games anymore, so there's another. Of course it looks like none of these are going to be BC anyway.

Well, I regularly play old Resident Evil games...  I could definitely see myself playing through last generation games again - things like the Bioshock series... then I have a few that I just haven't gotten to yet like Dark Souls and Dark Souls II.  I bought Portal 2 and haven't gotten to it yet... there are others.  I don't have as much time as I'd like to for video games, but I'm also the guy that still has an NES hooked up.  I like having access to everything, the more access the better.  And to me a fancy new, powerful, xBox should be able to easily handle the lighter older games without me having to use an older, less powerful system.

It wasn't a deal breaker to not have it, but I'm really happy that it'll be there going forward.

Yeah I've got gaming backlog like that too.  The 2nd Batman game eats away at me...  :(  Now there's a new one...  ugh.  I will get to them once I've moved heaven and earth for everyone.

I know you have a weird Sony thing going, but you're really reaching for a point here, as if that's it and there won't be dozens more titles added to the list this year, and many more beyond that.

Tell me about it.  I'm playing Resident Evil HD right now, have Revelations 2 to play, and then am moving to that or Dark Souls next.

So it's going to be like the X-Box 360 with backwards compatibility.  A few games at first as a test (glad to see Mass Effect in there) and they will add games over time.  Eventually, pretty much every game will be playable.

Condescending was dismissing the whole BC program because the list of titles 3 days after it's announcement isn't terribly lengthy.
