Microsoft halting expanding the Xbox 360 backwards compatibility list?


Recently Peter Moore hinted in an interview over at Kiziko Games that there might not be many more titles included in the Xbox 360’s backwards compatibility catalog. Moore said, “Nobody is concerned anymore about backwards compatibility. We under promised and over delivered on that. It’s a very complicated thing… very complex work. I’m just stunned that we have hundreds of games that are backwards compatible.“ Sure the Xbox 360 has a couple hundred titles already working for it, that’s great. Some of the key Xbox titles like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire, Splinter Cell and the Halo series are playable on the 360. However, the list is missing a few classics that might remain Xbox exclusives such as:

Jet Set Radio Future

Panzer Dragoon Orta

Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

Shin Megami Tensei Nine

Dino Crisis 3*

Soul Calibur II (well if you want to play as Spawn)


* OK it’s not really a classic
