Black, Battlefront II now 360-friendly

Criterion's "gun porn," Pandemic's sci-fi shooter, Konami's kicker all updated for backward compatibility on Microsoft's next-gen console.


The Xbox 360 may be loading up its library of next-gen games with more titles trickling into retail, but Microsoft doesn't want next-gen gamers to forget the games from the current generation. The company has updated its list of Xbox games compatible with the Xbox 360, and three more have joined the 200-plus Xbox games playable on the 360.

Many gun-happy gamers had hoped that Electronic Arts' Black would be coming to the Xbox 360. They got their wishes half-answered today as the Criterion-developed game can now be played on the new console. Rounding out the trio of games is LucasArts' top seller Star Wars: Battlefront II and Konami's World Soccer Winning Eleven 9.

Currently, the new additions apply to North America only. For a complete list of Xbox games playable on the Xbox 360, check out GameSpot's list of backward compatible games, or head over to the official list on the site.
