I understand there is no hope for backwards compatibility, but what about all those cool games we could download on marketplace for 360?

Everything has be built from scratch for Xbone even if it is just a indie or digital type game?

When I went to the live store all I found were Xbone games among a few other stragglers. I'm not sure if I was looking in the wrong place or something, I just expected to find some different games other than the Xbone games.

There are no more Xbox Live or arcade games on Xbox One. They are all just listed under games now.

Everything you bought for the 360 is now absolutely worthless.

M$ is doing that so they can sell you a way to play them later for an inflated price. If their newest laptop can play a Windows '95 game, why can't the "greatest system evar" play a game from 2012?

They aren't worthless. Just use your 360 if you want to play them. This guy sound like he has some angry issues. More games will be coming out soon and the prices will not be inflated.

I understand that, but on 360 there were other games that were digital only, indie games, lots of various games like Uno, Monopoly, Double Dragon NEON, Castle Crashers. I was curious if games like that will ever be available on Xbox One store at some point, also wondering if we'll ever get demos for any games in the future.
