If I had to pick and choose between this and the many other "solutions" offered by congressmen without knowledge of the media involved, I'd go for this. It's just another label. It's not forcing people to not buy the game. The only people this will truly effect are the children who get their parents to buy everything for them. And if a parent notices it and starts to ask questions - isn't that what we want? It takes nothing away from the older, more mature gamers, and leaves the choice in the hands of the parent. Double-plus good.

slothboyck slothboyck i don't see what's so hard to understand about playing an old game on the Xbox 360... it's not like people just want to play their old games on the new system. Think about a person who never owned an xbox, but decided to get an xbox 360. They were thrilled when they found out it was backwards compatible, so that they could finally pick up some great games that were for the xbox. I know if I were to get an xbox 360 (which i probably never will), I'd want to play Halo 2 because i never got to have it before. That's what backwards compatibility should be about. And all this crap about "omgz0rz!!!!1!! y wuld NE1 want 2 play teh 0ld gamez NEmor? This is l1ke teh next generation!!!!1!!!!!" is dumb. Just because the graphics are on par with gaming quality PCs doesn't mean the gameplay is any different. I would much rather play Halo 2 than some unimpressive, bulky, worthless graphical update of games that I've already played. Posted 12/09/2005 9:49pm I like Microsoft, but Halo 2 is a piece of ****. Guess what else, Microsoft is GIVING you free patches for your games. Would you rather them release it in stores? There is plenty of time until the PS3 and the Revolution come out. WHO CARES how long it takes. Instead of playing video games all day, go outside. Play some football. I am confident that Microsoft will fix it all up.
