New titles get Xbox 360 backwards compatibility
With E3 still in full swing Microsoft are determined to keep games journalists across the globe sweating, announcing a raft of new Xbox titles freshly compatible with the Xbox 360 console.
First out of the hat is OutRun 2 and OutRun 2006: Coast to Coast, both of which were two of the most notable titles presently not backwards compatible before. However, perhaps the most notable incompatible titles were Project Gotham Racing and Project Gotham Racing 2 - both of which are now playable. Cracking news.
Elsewhere, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind joins the BC list, the RPG still offering an immersive experience even if it has faded somewhat visually. Beyond these highlights, Burnout 1, Doom III, Full Spectrum Warrior, Jet Set Radio Future, KIngdom Under Fire, Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, Mech Assault 2, MotoGP 2, Silent Hill 2 and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2X and 3 are all now on Microsoft's BC list as well.
Some less notable games are also now playable - taking the list to 70 in total - but we wouldn't want to bore you with science. You can find out more via the official site.
