A list of backwards-compatible Xbox titles for the 360 will go up on
Xbox.com sometime next week, according to
an interview with MS marketing VP
Peter Moore (and J Allard) at GameInformer.com.
Moore had a lot of interesting things to say in the interview, but the things that stood out in our minds concerned 360 backwards compatibility. First, the list of BC titles will go up on Xbox.com and then get updated as more games "get through certification." Also, auto-updates of newly compatible titles may occur in the background and you could possibly be notified via e-mail and/or the web. An ominous warning was given, however, that updates will continue "[u]ntil consumers show lack of interest, then we will move on."
Considering the deluge of similar-sounding interviews and roundtables last week (most trying to get J to say something negative about the 360 launch), we hope you'll understandable how we missed this bit of info from X05, but we'll definitely make a report when the BC list (or the more important official launch list) finally gets released.
