With all this Cloud talk, I wonder if they'll implement a system like PS4 for "Backwards Compatibility".

It's digital programming, it can be ported, and if the hardware is as powerful as they claim, and since almost all Arcade titles don't require a ton of power, they could be emulated.

They're pulling a Sony, requiring people to re-buy the games if they want to play them on new hardware.

people need to stop acting like the second the next gen releases all 360s become doorstops

i still buy ps1 and two games and play them i still play xbox games and i will continue to play my 360 for many years only about 20% of my games will become unplayable when the servers are taken down only because a lot of indie games require it...idk why since they are single player

only games i have that will be unpayable that aren't Indie are gothem city imposters defience and maybe one or two others

ill still have many a game to play for years to come considering gamestop is just now stopping carrying ps2 games and hardware at the end of this month i doubt 360 games will disappear anytime soon

1. I don't know how credible this is, but "Online interaction not rated by the ESRB" is rumored to be a reason for the required online connection to launch an Indie game.

2. More credible, it is so that MS can pull any game that might have inappropriate/illegal content that might have gotten passed the community review of the game, and can then block all users from accessing said content.
