It's rather hard to imagine a higher utilization % when your console had limited backwards compatibility with few last-gen games people would want to revisit.

I guess it's true in a way since most likely they will only get 5% of the current xbox population.

While that does sound low I am willing to bet it's nowhere near as high as people make it out to be either.

Huh....

So a limited number of people use a feature that's restricted to what MS decides?

And now they want to restrict the console from being able to play games unless you can check in online?

Well, don't expect me to be part of THAT 5%.

barely any of the original Xbox games could be played on 360 anyways.

This number is skewed if MS is just using their own player base. BC for Xbox games was so terribly supported on 360 not many people would have bothered. If MS was using PS2/PS1 or Wii/Wii U BC numbers, then that would be a more accurate test. I think it would be a fair guess that far more than 5% of Ps2 users played PS1 games on the system.
