LOL gotta wonder if they were just holding onto this gem to keep things exciting 18 months later lol. And in the meantime they got plenty of sales of the older consoles, and now maybe they'll get more converts.

Hmmm... Would make for good strategy. Like a good endurance race, pit timing can be the key.

If you have the Preview Program just go to My Games and to the right under Ready To Install it shows all the digital 360 games that you own that are supported so far.

I doubt it - given the amount they offer in trade-ins atm ($175US at Bestbuy I think = 50% off!)

Now I hope so. As a fan of endurance racing, I hope they have some varied lengths of endurance races that actually require a pit stop or two. In previous Forza's the endurances races lasted around 50-60 minutes and didn't really require a pit unless you didn't mind racing the last few laps on orange tyres, and the fuel wasn't an issue as you were still left with around 1/2-1/4 of a tank left.

It just opens up the store to way more games over time. Plus gives you 4 games a month as opposed to 2 with GwG.

 

They would of launched with it if they had it, a lot of people went from 360 to PS4 this gen. If they knew they could keep their current library on XB1 I feel like that would of kept a lot more people on Xbox.

Battle block theatre and keiflings are my partners favourite games on the 360. I'd better download them again on the one, I've been holding off using the preview program till now, I might have to use it, I think I still have a message somewhere to accept it

@Mafivee: Yeah in the Q&A they were talking about endurance stuff even in the career, or "stories in motor racing" as it is now called. Stint racing on Le Mans they talked about - 2.5 hours. Just as long as we can have losing fuel separate from simulated damage, because you can't have one or the other in 5, and there's no way I'm keeping in good shape that long lol.

 

@Gooner: Great counterpoint!

Just saw a we list of the 360 titles that I have that are available. Nothing that I would bother with yet. Will be good for HDD space too as my 360 is at its limit and constantly have to delete something to make room for the next game, now I could install them onto my One and delete them off the 360. Unless all future GwG will be coming straight to the One?

Fired up Mass Effect tonight. Works well, a few graphic glitches here and there but nothing major.

Downloaded a few of my digital 360 games but haven't tried them yet.

 

cheers

Had a look at a list of Xbox Exclusive games as I already own a tonne of previous gen games on PS3. Already got Halo: MCC and will probably hold out for Gears of War Ultimate edition.

 

Personally, I'm hoping Ace Combat 6 will be supported cause I loved AC: Assault Horizon and general air combat games :). Maybe The Witcher 2 (Haven't got 3 yet but I'll get there) and the Fable games.

 

If anyone can recommend me some other 360 games that didn't make it to PS3 then let me know, I was close to getting 360 over PS3 last gen so keen to try out what I missed out on.

Worth remembering this is basically BETA atm.

Even then - the performance of emulated games is actually BETTER. Mass Effect loads faster, there is less lag and there's less pop-in.

My partner even said the lift was faster than the messages that were playing - which if you know ME, you know is a big deal.

I got the message that I was added, downloaded the dashboard but when I put the mass effect disc in it came up with an error?

 

I registered my Xbox to my account and I think it says pending.  Anyone know what's happening?

Check if there's another update needed to dashboard?

Also region you're set to may have an impact for 360 games? (I'm guessing here)

The games being run off of the xbox one hard drive so you will see minor performance increases but so far the difference has been impressive
