Arrow 360 backward compatibility update

Quote:
Roughly 17 months after the launch of the Xbox 360, Microsoft is bringing the Xbox 360 backward compatibility list above the 300 mark. The company today added dozens of original Xbox titles to its official backward compatibility list, with highlights including Sega releases Jet Set Radio Future and Panzer Dragoon Orta, as well as Pandemic Studios' Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction and Microsoft's MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf.

When asked if this would be the final backward compatibility update, a Microsoft representative told GameSpot that while there were no details to share yet, "don't expect this to be the final update."

The following is a list of games added to the backward compatibility list in the latest update:

for those of you who've been wanting JSRF, the stand alone version is the only one that works, not the one bundled with sega rally.

That is the same with SEGA GT 2002! Upsetting. But Panzer Dragoon was the one I wanted to play.

Glad I have the stand alone JSRF, and I was hoping for a Panzer Dragoon Orta update. Good news.

But we need Otogi 1 and 2. And Prince of Persia 2 and 3 would be nice. So far it's only Sands of Time.

Guys i have a question. I got a 360 recently and never bothered with backwards so i want to ask if Xbox games played on the 360 are any different from the original Xbox? What i mean is mainly things like frame rate/ slowdowns on KOTOR for example. Is it the same when played on the 360? or has it been improved?

edit: ok nevermind i found out the hard way. Shame i thought i could replay KOTOR without frame-rate issues.

It's good that they are even working on BC at all. I mean, they don't have to and it seems that this would be axed FAST for accounting reasons...
