Xbox 360 backwards compatibility increased


A number of titles have recently been added to the US backwards compatibility list like the entire Splinter Cell lineup. Not to be outdone the Japanese backwards compatibility has increased to 30 titles instead of 12. Notable additions include a catalog of Sega titles like Sonic Heroes, Super Monkey Ball Deluxe and Shadow the Hedgehog. Absent from this list is Fable, which was part of the original backwards compatibility list and is still part of the US list. Let’s hope that’s an oversight.
