Xbox Backwards Compatibility |OT3| All that power to play old games

I would love it if MS started adding more BC titles from all gens. There are several on 360 alone I never had the chance to play but would pay well for the ability to have them on my SX. Along with games I played on PS3 but want to get achievements on Xbox. While my first and biggest desire is for MS to get more weeb support for niche games, my second is to just go hog wild with as much og Xbox and 360 titles as possible. I also appreciate the Xbox One enhanced games too.

They shut that program down more than two years ago. All the employees working on it were moved to other teams.
I doubt they will ever start it back up.

Sad fact that this is the last batch and we won’t se games like Rez, Fez and Crimson Skies again. But seeing these 76 game with games featuring FEAR and DOA is fantastic.

THANK YOU MICROSOFT AMD XBOX TEAM.
Crimson Skies is available on GamePass and for $8 on sale

I had bought Max Payne digitally on 360 years ago but for some reason it made me have to pay $20 for it. I'm hoping this is an error and I'll be able to get a refund

Oh that is sad if it's the last update, missed that part. Going out with a bang though.
Still got my Xbox and 360 for the rest.

It's not yet showing as back compat on the 360 store. I think everything is supposed to be properly going live later today.

yeah that should not happen... do you have multiple accounts? maybe you bought it with a different one?
but if it is the same account you should be able to download it, I had Ninja Gaiden black since the 360 days when it came to the store (was the very first BC game I downloaded) and I had no issues downloading it once it became back compat on One X.

maybe give it a few hours. if you want a refund, call the service hotline, if they see that you bought it twice due to an error they will usually refund relatively quickly... I can only speak for the customer service over here in germany, but I had a similar issue with another game and they refunded me the account balance within 5h

Yeah I used the same account. I'm guessing it was some issue on their end as I've never had to rebuy a game I bought digitally on the 360. I'll give them a call tomorrow and get it sorted out

Games coming there very slowly, so I would personally just wait. But I downloaded MP3 without an issue few minutes ago.
 
When are they going to start doing resolution bumps to Xbox one games great examples of games that need a boost is battlefield 4 and Batman Arkham knight
I get the feeling that resolution is now not a priority for MS, which would be sad if true. You're right man there are so many 360and xbox one games that NEED better resolutions because they look BAD on 4k screen. So many xbox one exclusives that never got a patch which is just weird: Sunset overdrive, gears 1 ultimate (whatever happened to the 4k/60 they talked about?), ryse son of Rome, dead rising 4.

Especially Ryse and Sunset- these are gorgeous games that unfortunately have poop image quality. Dead rising 4 too although I don't think many peeps care about that game. Arkham knigjt- I know it's not exclusive but how has one of the most impressive looking games ever made not gotten a res boost? Such a shame man. At least with MS there's a little hope that something could be done. Them shutting the program down though?

Let's not forget Forza Horizon 2. That game deservers 4k patch more than any other Microsoft exclusive. Ryse, Gears of War Ultimate, Dead Rising 4 or Sunset Overdrive can all be played on PC.

Forza Horizon 2 is stuck on Xbox.
