I'm a big Xbox fan, but I don't understand some things

I don't understand why ms doesn't put more games on live as download, games like

Halo 4
Gears 3
Fable anniversary
And other 1st party games

I sold my 360 over a year ago for a ps3- so I could enjoy their games of the generation and I knew I would get a Xbox one.

But I would love to play halo 4 and replay gears 3 on my one.

Why is this so hard- it would be such an easy way to fill the catalogue while the one gets its roots set in and gets more games.

This seems like such and easy move. I mean how much money could it cost to get these working in the one. Emulate it, or whatever.

Well it could be because they dont have the rights to do so. Maybe they are trying to design a paywall situation where you have to have gold to get certain games from online.

A paywall system would be fine, but it should of been done by now-

Charge me 19.99$ I'd pay

And they own the games, how do they not have rights? I'm talking first party

These things are complicated. They may not actually own all the rghts to those IPs.

Without discussing copyright law at length with you, rights to distribute IP are not always carte blanch.

Also the X1 and 360 are two different systems, it would take some time to port them to the One. Unless they did a Cloud streaming thing like Sony is doing.

Not to mention porting them over would take quite a bit of work.
