Today was announced that the backwards compatibility team moves on and works on Scarlett. Many 360 shmups did not make to Xbox One.

Will you keep your 360 consoles?

This news makes no difference to me today. I was always going to keep my 360 and J360. Hopefully when they die, true BC will be working.

Yeah, that killed the remaining small traces of hope there was to get those shmups working on xbox one or later device.

I like xbone, game pass is great value for money and all that, but for shmup fans it's clearly to worst of the three current gen consoles. Most shmups, which are not available on PS4 or Switch, are BC 360 titles and for those you are probably better off with having actual 360 as even non-japan one gives you more shmup options.

But no, not selling mine as it's never been my main shmup machine and after M2STG series stopped on it, it was clear it was very highly unlikely it ever is going be (having those 360 shmups ported started to look more and more unrealistic after time passed by)

Probably a good chunk. They only got to a subset of the library as it is, and we're niche, with plenty of licensing issues thrown in.

From what I understand Scarlett will work with all Xbox games from every generation. Not just those made for XB1 backwards compatibility. But I imagine they will still be region locked because that is on the Game Disc.

Also I read it is up to the publishers / developers to contact Microsoft to get their games backwards compatible.

Most do not even care (Cave) or some might not exist anymore.

Also fun trick. For region locked games. Change your region to Japan and they will work on your Xbox One. Good way to test them. Import Raiden IV will not boot up in USA region but when I change the region to Japan it will.

I have an import Raiden IV game and EUR account, the game boots without any problem. What is the last time you tried it? I think early this year all bc games received a patch with included free region

I will have to try that. It was when it was first added.

It was not up to them to initiate but their permission was necessary, for the obvious IP/legal reasons.

Anyway, there is clearly a sea change here and we've no way to know which procedures still apply. I'm not taking their announcement as meaning there will never be more 360 games added, but this will obviously only happen after they've ensured everything already out there is good to go on Scarlett. So not for a damn long time - then we'll see how much interest they have in expanding 360 support for the new gen and beyond.
