Do anyone know what xbox games will work on the xbox 360?
Microsoft have yet to list the games that will be backwards compatible
We aint far off from the 360, so in the next few months, here's hoping they reveal which will be playable on 360
I have a feeling Halo 2 (and maybe 1) will creep in there
LOL I think at that conference they have all will be revealed - X05
Microsoft have said every game will work. Check out the specs for the machine on xbox.com
Every game will work if you have a hard drive remember so if youve ordered the core package. No backward compatibility
Not every game will work though as the Xbox 360 is running Xbox games through emulation. Even the PS2, which uses actual PS chips couldn't run all PSone games, some like Mortal Kombat Trilogy didn't work. However, 99% did.
The Xbox 360's emulator will no doubt run most games but not all will run perfectly hence the need for emulation profiles which are stored on the hard drive. Newer ones will no doubt be given free over Xbox Live and in time the majority of the game will run. However, I wouldn't rely on all games working at launch, not until Microsoft officially say otherwise. So far they've said that only "top-selling" games will be compatible...
