      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

Backward Compatibility List is out, and it's getting better!

Is this list all the games that will ever be BC, or will there be more in the future? I was hoping to finally beat Lost Odyssey. 

It will have more.  Future Games with Gold for 360 titles are confirmed to be approved for BC.  The hard sell for MS is getting games listed when a publisher might just want to HDify a game and sell it for a much larger price.

They say more are coming. That was what we heard last gen. 

But more did come. Remember they added NFL 2K5? That was a pretty big one that came a long while after launch.

(November 2007 to be exact, 2 years after 360 was launched)

I can see it now...

"Buy [insert_game_name] HD for XBOX ONE and get the ability to play [insert_game_name] Classic (BC 360 version) for free!" 

 :P

They already somewhat did that with FO4.  You get FO3 with it for free.  Might be hard to tell the difference between the two.

Flashpoint Dragon Rising and the Pac Man games.. Cool

Reach is disappointing cause i want it remastered.. Though Halo 5 takes the sting off..

No biggie either way, 360 still hooked up..

I swear I saw Future Soldier on the list ..

I am shocked by this information. 

That makes two of us. Who would have thought this BC thing would be very disappointing, and feel under-utilized?

Not me. I was always optimistic about it. I knew MS wouldn't let us down. They had my 100% confidence, but everyone disagreed with me. Well, I'll be the first to admit when I'm wrong. Sorry, guys.

I actually have to take back my original statement.

After getting over the fact that Microsoft didn't include my personal favorites (HOW DARE THEY!) I took a good look at the titles they do offer and there are some pretty solid games in there. I've already got an itch to sit down on do a play through of Rainbow Six Vegas 1 & 2, as well as the Gears trilogy, as well as Condemned.

Plus, if I originally owned some of those arcade shooters like Ikaruga or Metal Slug, I'd be tickled pink that I didn't have to buy them yet again just to enjoy them on my current gen console. 

Sure, there's a lot of filler like Backgammon to fluff up the title count, but I'd be willing to bet that the monthly updates will be smaller with more significant titles. 

We'll wait and see what happens, but for now I can put my undeserved sense of entitlement on hold for a bit and be pretty happy with what we have so far.

Annnddd MNC is basically unplayable.  Maybe plays at 15 FPS.

Not surprising if you ever saw the footage of Mass Effect running. :P

I saw it compared to the 360, and it was a few frames behind the 360 version.  This is just fucking awful.  Seriously bad, its the worst of the BC games Ive played.

So I checked the "ready to install" list and I was like whoa, that's a lot of games. :P

I thought the initial reports of ME were that loading times were quicker and run somewhat better than on the 360? Has that changed?
