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

439 Comments

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.

Regardless of what was said before, it's apparent that people do still care about backward compatibility on the Xbox 360. Microsoft has announced the latest additions to its list of Xbox games run on the company's next-gen console.

Answering the prayers of many gamers, Doom 3 is now one of the 200-plus Xbox games that can be played on an Xbox 360. Also on the list are horror titles Fatal Frame and Silent Hill 4: The Room, as well as a few from a galaxy far, far away--Lego Star Wars and the original Star Wars Battlefront.

A list of all 21 games added to the list is below:

• 4x4 EVO 2
• Amped 2
• Bad Boys 2
• Big Mutha Truckers
• Doom 3
• Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
• Fatal Frame
• FlatOut
• Grabbed by the Ghoulies
• Intellivision Lives
• LEGO Star Wars
• Minority Report
• MLB SlugFest 20-04
• The Punisher
• RalliSport Challenge
• Silent Hill 4: The Room
• Spawn Armageddon
• Spider-Man
• Star Wars Battlefront
• State of Emergency
• Zapper

In addition, the following Japanese-only Xbox games are also now playable on the Xbox 360:

• Bistro Cupid 1
• Flight Academy
• Othello Seminar
• Igo Seminar
• Shogi Seminar
• Mahjong Seminar

I'm still waiting for Metal Gear Solid 2 Subsistence and MechAssault. It seems kind of dumb to have MechAssault 2 but not the original.

I am glad they brought back the backward compatibility issue for the 360. I knew that by canceling BC games for the 360 was a mistake. And hopefully Microsoft will continue to support BC and add lots more games, then what they have already done. They need to make all the Platinum Hits BC, seems easy enough.

ok i would think that being one of the recent games released before the 360, Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict would have been done by now! didn't MS say that they would be putting in a great effort to make most of the xbox games BC? so why isn't one of the best sellers up there :S

The list is getting...... better? Well.. it's getting longer atleast. Of course for the 200+ games on there, only about 1/4 of my games are on there. Fortunately the 360 has very little to entice me into buying it at the moment. Nor anything upcoming in the next year that I know about. Maybe [eA] or 99 Knights.... Superman? I dunno. I'm going to stick with my box until atleast half of my games can be carried over with me to the 360. Namely the ones I still enjoy playing.

I think the reason that Mircosoft is adding these bad games is that their rushing they keeping putting on these games cause thier easy to make BC and they just want ot show us a list of games to encourage us. Really Bad boys 2 and Barbie's adventure?????????

I think Microsoft is a huge troll. They know Grabbed By The Ghoulies and Barbie House Adventures pisses everyone off. No Panzer Dragoon, no JSRF. It's obvious.

No one plays half of those games at all. Could they at least *look* at the Steel Battalion crowd? I just dont have the space for a pair of massive microsoft consoles to play my amazing niche game.

could they have picked worse games? the least they could do is add counter-strike or give us a 360 version of the game.
