Besides Halo and Halo 2, there's finally another title I still own that's emulated -- Counter-Strike. I only own it still because I kept it until I wouldn't get jack for it in trades or eBay and because it's one of the original, pre-ordered limited edition and numbered copies.

I haven't ever seen one of them on eBay, but never checked eBay for the game until it had been out about 12-18 months. All I've seen since are regular copies, but I haven't checked but maybe 5 times.

Even though it's numbered, limited, and quite possibly very rare, I'm sure it's still worth squat on eBay so that's why I still got it.

Anyway, I may throw it in when I get bored or finally finish playing Saint's Row. See if anyone is still online with it (I doubt it) and see what it looks like in WS, 720P, and with AA.

The only other title I'd even try, if it WERE emulated that is, is RTCW, but it isn't. Too bad, too, because this was IMO the best Live title ever back in it's day. Not only in gameplay but in Live features. I doubt it'll ever be emulated because of all the updates they made for it on Live to stop cheaters, but who knows.

Umm... you mean 39....

No:
Panzer Dragoon Orta
Shenmue II
Beyond Good and Evil
Soul Calibur 2

Oh well...


Exactly. I'm still not impressed, mostly because they refuse to work on games that have sequels on the 360...

Not always true, heck they just added support for Burnout 3, and it's an EA game to boot, they pretty much give up on a game 6 months after it's released. There's also Lego Star Wars I&II, and Dead or Alive 3 to name a few.

I still want to see PGR2 and the Midnight Club games added to the list though sad.gif

until street fighter anniversary edition is made backwards compatible, color me not interested.
i'm sure it's hard and all to develop specific emulators per game but, c'mon, it's a 2d fighting game that still has an installed fanbase that plays on live.



i doubt they'll have it compatable because it would conflict with street fighter II hf sales. I would love to play 3rd strike again though.

I'm glad to see they haven't abandonded BC on the 360 but as far as I'm concerned they are still missing some big titles on there:

Project Gotham I and II
Mechassault I and II
X-Men Legends I and II

I assume the PGR titles are because they want you to buy PGR3 but I can't understand the lack of Mechassault. Mechassault was their first HUGE online game. Almost everyone with a LIVE account had Mechassault. Considering the original BC releases claimed they would be releasing BC patches for the Top selling Xbox 1 games: PGR and Mechassault should've been on that list.

(I doubt X-Men Legends were huge sellers but I LOVE X-Men Legends II and thought I'd lend my support for that title)
