It sucks, there are a lot of games that Microsoft forgot about making it to the list....

At least they got a lot of the good Xbox games.

It just wasn't worth the money to make the games playable - emulation isn't easy to do just one generation later. :-)

To be exact, Invidia was entitled to royalties since they provided the chip for original XBOX, and their royalties weren't cheap...not even in the least.

Simply put Invidia charged M$ our of the ass for rights to emulate the old games and after a while M$ just wasn't having any of that.

***note: I only type M$ because I don't feel like typing the whole thing out. Don't like it? **** you :P

Anyone who uses that "abbreviation" of Microsoft deserves a permanent place on everyone's ignore list for being a complete douchebag.


You should be the first to enact this new rule of yours :)
