Microsoft changes how backward compatible titles will be released

Based on feedback from the fans, Microsoft has announced that instead of releasing Xbox 360 backwards compatibility titles in batches, they will instead release them as they come. That means as soon as it passes their tests, we’ll be able to access that game sooner.

A win/win for everyone, don’t you think?

On top of that, Microsoft has released the newest titles that are now available via backwards compatibility. Now available are the following titles;

  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
  • Sam & Max Save the World
  • Aegis Wing
  • Counter-Strike: GO
  • Age of Booty
  • Space Giraffe
  • Soulcalibur
  • Skullgirls
  • Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad
  • Small Arms

So there you have it. Are you happy with Microsoft’s decision to released BC titles as soon as they are ready? Let us know in the comments below.
