Microsoft Continues Back-Compat Support


Xbox 360

Despite the recent announcement of upcoming downloadable original Xbox games for Xbox 360, Microsoft has released another free backward compatibility update for its console.

On December 4, Microsoft will begin charging $15 a pop for original Xbox game downloads such as Crimson Skies, Halo, Fable, and Burnout 3 as part of its upcoming Xbox Live Originals offerings. But apparently, the firm isnít letting the opportunity to make more cash on old games get in the way of continuing to provide free back-compat support.


Xbox Live figurehead Larry Hryb said in his blog that over 80 games would be added to the list of backward-compatible Xbox games, including Baldurís Gate: Dark Alliance, Breakdown, Freedom Fighters, Future Tactics: The Uprising, High Heat MLB 2004, Playboy: The Mansion, Thrillville and The Bardís Tale.

The compatibility update is available for free over Xbox Live.

Following the recent announcement of Xbox Originals, we reached out and contacted a Microsoft rep to find out if the company would continue back-compat support, but the rep was unable to dig up an official comment. For now, back-compat updates appear to be ongoing, although the timing of the next update is unknown.

The full list of newly compatible games is below:



2006 Fifa World Cup Germany
25 to Life
AMF Bowling 2004
Apex
Arena Football
Armed and Dangerous
