If you're Gold, you can still "buy" it for free and cancel the download. That way you'll still have access to it when you have the space freed up. And it's only 2GB, anyway.

Resident Evil CVX downloaded and installed last night... no issues with the old purchase.

Resident Evil 3 and the original RE2 are the only ones I'm still waiting on, and I love it.

So I didn't realize that the June BC releases were going to be the last ones... That program has been incredible and I love everything about it, but I'm bummed that it's ending.  I was this many games away from being able to get rid of the old Xbox and 360...

360:
[  ] Medal of Honor
[  ] Medal of Honor:  Warfighter
[  ] Silent Hill: Homecoming
[/] Skyrim - I could live without this one because of the re-release, but my old saved game is on the 360 version...
[  ] Blazing Angels 2

XBOX:
[  ] Call of Duty:  Finest Hour
[  ] Heroes of the Pacific
[  ] Medal of Honor:  European Assault
[  ] Medal of Honor:  Frontline
[  ] Medal of Honor:  Rising Sun
[  ] Secret Weapons Over Normandy
[  ] Silent Hill 4:  The Room
[  ] Star Wars:  Jedi Knight 2 - Jedi Outcast
[  ] Thing (The)
[  ] Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4

I hope that once Project Scarlett is done, that they'll relaunch the program.

Rob, you might be able to move your saved games to cloud storage.
This is the way.


I have spoken.

I think they're all on cloud storage - but I wouldn't be able to play them if I ditched the old consoles without those last few being BC, which is my real goal / hope.

Some decent sales going up today on Xbox for May the 4th. For Xbox One, there's Battlefront I/II, Jedi Fallen Order, LEGO TFA, Pinball FX tables, and a bunch of 360 and OG Xbox SW titles that are backwards-compatible.

Pretty good sales on Steam today, too

Probably be some other sales coming up for PlayStation and Switch as well

So they ended the BC program to focus on project Scarlett. Now that the console is almost done, has there been any indication that they might spin it up again and start adding more titles??

I don't think we'll see any new additions between now and November, when the new console comes out, if that's what you're asking. But I wouldn't be surprised if there were some new ones added when or after the console launches. They're trying to make the Series X as backwards-compatible as possible. Anything that's playable on an Xbox One now should be playable on the Series X. And hopefully a bunch more.

Yeah I didn't specifically mean before launch, I was just broadly wondering if they'd ever officially said that the program would come back once they were able to stop focusing on developing the new console. 

I also saw that games for the new console can only be installed on the internal storage, and external sticks you can add. Will it still take old fashion USB 3.0 HDD's to play older games off of?  One of my favorite things is having everything installed and either instantly playable, or only needing the disc to be put in to be ready to go.
