Jet Set Radio Future was not popular. But the four people on the planet that bought it (me is 1) want a sequel.

It wasn't? I know a lot of people that have it and they barely play games at all. Maybe I should find a statistic or something.

On second thought, I'll take your word for it.

Well maybe I'm wrong but I thought Sega said they aren't doing another one due to poor sales?

Anyone have solid figures.

Actually, I forgot that they eventually bundled JSRF with Sega GT free with the Xbox, that's probably why alot of people have it.

As for actually buying it before that, I stick with my sales figure of 4.

Shame Moore was Xbox pro at the time and only had those games release on the Xbox. I knew several Cube owners itching for some Sega love.

It came with the system for a while.

And I want a damn sequel.

Jet Set Radio went to hell once they changed the name. You know Dreamcast owners sure did anticipate this game way back before the 1st one came out. I even wanted a copy.

Well that is a let down. I probably would have bought a 360 sooner if it had more Xbox games compatible.

Guess I'll just buy a Xbox and the 360 will have to wait.

Lots of talk about backwards compatibility online today. We wanted to get to the bottom of it all, so we went right to the team working on the next back compat update. We hear directly from them that they're in the testing phase of another update, and it should be out in the next few weeks. We saw the list they're testing, and it looks like they're hoping to add at least a dozen titles.

Long before the launch, we thought we might hit a few dozen titles, and we all feel pretty good about the list of well over 200 titles on the back compat list today, including many of the games that you've asked for. You all have heard us say the work isn't simple. Many games did unique things to take advantage of the processing power of the Xbox, and that makes it difficult to emulate, especially when we then have to make new code work with existing (and future) compatible titles.

But rest assured, we're not done yet.

One wonders if they did this because of all the negative publicity they got earlier. Methinks yes.

Mine is modded which means I can't play Phantom Dust online. That's all I really want out of BC.

if the console doesn't do better than it's doing backwards compatibility isn't what they should be worrying about.

Xbox 360 doesnt suck, i think MS rush it out, because i always use to say. Before you release a new gaming system, make sure you have about 20 or 30 so games ready to be release with the system. They didnt do that, infact i think the dreamcast was the only system that came out with alot of games, not to mention alot of great games.

360 only had a few games at release, and all of them suck, expect for quake 4.

But the biggest reason about 360 is the price of the system and paying 60 bucks for a game is retarted.
