It will be interesting to see how many of the more requested games will be in this first wave of backwards compatible games. While it seems like the Call of Duty games are out of the running because of Activision, there is some hope that games like Skyrim and Red Dead Redemption will be among the first batch. It will also be interesting to see if there will be any games that came on two or more discs on the 360, Microsoft has previously claimed that this has become an issue which will disappoint fans of games such as Mass Effect and LA Noire.
For all of the latest news on backwards compatibility and general Xbox, stay tuned to TiCGN.
