I have to say I kind of agree. I think MS will have to allow you access to this kind of content, a lot of people have spent a lot of money on arcade/on demand titles etc and I think MS know that most people have a single console hooked up, and I can't see them expecting people to go swapping consoles every time they want to access any of this stuff. I assume they will use a similar kind of store on the new console, so I am sure they will allow you to re download these things. Would be a mistake if they didn't imo. --- A Valley Without Wind - Dynamic RPG from Arcen Games! http://www.arcengames.com/w/index.php/games/avww-features
not at all id rather buy 10 more 360's then a 720 if it cant play the games i bought
Ok so then why do you need the 720 to play 360 games if you will still have said 360 to play 360 games on? I mean I had a ton of NES games that the SNES never played. Didn't stop me from buying one. Same with the 64, Saturn, Dreamcast, PS3... --- Currently playing: Mass Effect 3
Not being able to transfer all my games/content i purchased on my account to the new system and its full capabilities.
Being the 200+ indie games, 400+ live arcade games and the 20 games on demand games.
Not being able to play those on the next system will be the main reason I'll never buy it!
Other then that if it impliments it you got yourself a sale.
Consoles not being backwards compatible is not a new thing.
If you refuse to pay for a console that isn't backwards compatible, that's your deal, but there have been what, 2 and a half home consoles that are BW compatible (the 360 doesn't really count, since it's only half)?
I cant think of any besides the PS2 and the PS3 (and some models of the PS3 don't even have the emulation software to be BW compatible).
I always love when people pull the "Microsoft is too damn greedy!" care on the BW-compatability debate like it's just a matter of them ticking a box next to "Back-wards compatible" on a spec-sheet. Some people don't get that it isn't Wizards that make their stuff work. --- 84% of people make up their statistics. If you are one of the 16% that don't, put this in your signature.
