All i know is they made a bunch of maps dlc in the CE anniversary release. So weird that they are pushing Halo for this BC when we have the perfectly good MCC *ducks* but seriously, is this their solution?

Probably thinking that the vanilla experience is much better than the 343i bug-ridden one. Fair call. I expect Halo 2 MP to come back when they launch Xbox OG BC if this is what 343i are doing with the series.

 

 

Slight issue with that.

 

Halo 2 Servers were shut down a few years ago.

So what if they were shut down, there's an opportunity for them to be brought back online in Microsoft Azure. And I doubt it will be any major feat anyway.

Yeah I own that one at least. SSFIV says unavailable when searching on console but not on the website. Still $50, when I had all the content on Steam, not sure I'll bother again.

There's something weird going on, it said $50 for me too (even though I know I got it as GWG) but then I clicked on a different version link thing and it came up as free.

Hmmm. I'm now seeing ssfiv $49.95 then the AE update $20 and the Ultra update $20. Lame lol. Free would be nice, wish they had just done Ultra for the One!

The rate of games coming to backwards compatibility has slowed down a fair bit. Anyone have an idea why?

Finally Fable Anniversary has been made Backwards Compatible. Bought this about a year back when Harvey Norman had it for $14 after it being 'leaked' for BC. Happy now that I have all 3 Fable games and can play through them for the first time :)

if I have an American friend buy me a backwards compatible game that isn't available in our market place, can I redeem it on my NZ account? Or do I need to switch regions to redeem?

Try it - it probably won’t work though, so you will then need to migrate your gamer tag from NZ to USA region (can do it 9nce every 90 days)

I have done this a few times, and had no things go missing, but it does warn about this possibility

I haven't looked back migrating my Xbox One to the US region. I've even created a US paypal linked to my YouShop address in order to make purchases on the US store and you definitely get access to some pretty wicked deals.
