Xbox 360 BC list updated

Twenty-one more Xbox games now playable on Xbox 360; Doom 3, Lego Star Wars, Silent Hill 4 lead pack.


Early this month, Microsoft VP Peter Moore stated that "nobody is concerned anymore about backward compatibility," prompting the company's PR department into action. Moore has since retracted the statement, saying he was taken out of context.
