    If I put in my Original Xbox discs of Far Cry Instincts and/or Far Cry instincts Evolution, will I be upgraded to the 360 BC download for Far Cry Predator?
    Seems only fair.

    Most likely not because of Legal License Issues where Fair does not exist.
    But... it is a mystery until someone tries it.

    Strange. GTA San Andreas worked exactly that way.

    Love the new games added(especially Splinter Cell), but it's kinda sad no more backward compatible games after this. Wonder how they handle Games with Gold after this? You still get 360 games but they're only playable on the 360 or they're repeat of ones they have already released? They should have done this next year after announcing retail plans for Scarlett. <shrug>

    No way they include games that can only be played on x360.
    Have to work on X1 also.

    I would hope not. At this point I don't know what to expect. Haven't found any official response on how they will handle it. :/

    Their wording seems to imply that they'll continue to add X360 and Xbox titles to Project Scarlett BC. Just that XBO and XBO-X will no longer receive new BC updates.

    Regards,

    Maybe they could include xCloud OG/X360 games when they run out of ones to include on native platform for Games with Gold? They wouldn't need to get an XOne BC version running, just the new Scarlett version that could run on early DevKits in xCloud beta if they had to before Holiday 2020.

    Probably too far reach.

    I'm sure there's still some that's never been on gold that is BC.
    Also wouldn't be end of world to mix in some previous ones, be nice for people that missed when they first appeared on there.
    Wouldn't be first time games been on there before either I believe.

    Was gonna run out one way or another, so be interesting if they don't just recycle.

    A bit sad to see BC put on hold, but I can't complain too much as I rarely get chance to play them (steam backlog...) Am really pleased to see the Rare games getting the enhancements though. Love Kameo, N&B and the Viva Pinatas :) Would have like to see a new VP announced , but this is a consolation prize :)

    September marks the second month in a row with Original Xbox game as one of the titles. I hope there is another wave of new Original Xbox games making the BC list, even if they may be next-gen only for Series X / Lockhart.

    Is anybody interested in some data from my Games with Gold spreadsheet? Almost done updating it with September's games.

    I'm not that great at spreadsheets but this is from Google Sheets. Sorry I had to zoom out, but I exported it from my Chromebook

    This includes 327 games from over the past 7 years. If there are any requests for different data let me know.
