    FU microsoft.

    http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/692/692421p1.html

    this is one of the many reasons why i probably won't get the xbox360.
    fkn microsoft biatchez.

    i mean like......sony has been supporting BC since PS1 and nintendo is gonna do that too for the revolution console so that we can even play SNES games on it. the xbox360 is already mediocre, and the people that work there are just stupid :/

    Assuming for a moment that those who went out and purchased an XBOX360 didn't previously own an XBOX, it's probably two things. First, building backwards compatability for original XBOX titles is most likely no walk in the park. I'd imagine it takes developers and testers quite a bit of work. I bet Microsoft is still feeling the effects of their rushed launch. Maybe they bit off more than they could chew? Regardless, I don't expect M$ to build BC for anything but blockbuster titles. And especially not titles that are going to be released (or re-released) on the 360.

    Second, why cater directly to consumers when you might be able to sell a few more units of your legacy product. It's a win for Microsoft, while the developers may eat more of a loss on it all. Limit choices, consumers either buy the game or they don't. People who solely own an XBOX360 will actually have to take that money and spend it on more accessories and (higher priced) video games for their platform.

    Microsoft is already selling their XBOX360s at a substancial loss. I doubt they want to put any more time into backwards compatability than they need to. The money is in their future progression.

    It really does suck though, I'd like to shit can the XBOX completely and still be able to pickup new XBOX titles and use them on my 360. :(

    I dunno if I'd call the 360 mediocre either, most everyone I know who owns one (myself included) admit that it's pretty damn nice. Definitely a step up from the XBOX.

    no man!
    the new rev controllers would own the keyboard and mouse too! that's the thing!
    the left hand component of the controller is the analog which lets you move your character foward, backward, or strafing and the right hand component of the controller let's you aim like the Time Crisis guns! aiming it this way would own aiming it with a mouse i'd say :/ more realistic at least :o

    Yeah I agree, it's hard to use them for an extended amount of time. I wonder how Nintendo's controller is going to handle.
