Gotcha, will check that out to see what I may have missed. I think Noise was following a website at one point versus manually checking.

Looks like we have our last addition. I'm impressed how far they took this.

https://kotaku.com/microsoft-ends-xbox- ... 391786/amp

If this has to be the final update, it’s a pretty good one. On the Xbox 360, there’s Asura’s Wrath, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, Infinite Undiscovery, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and more. For original Xbox, there’s four Splinter Cell games and more.

In all, Microsoft’s efforts put over 600 Xbox and Xbox 360 games onto the One, which is no small feat. Sorry to those of you who were holding out hope for Barbie Horse Adventures: Wild Horse Rescue.

Here’s the full list.

Xbox
Armed and Dangerous
Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb
Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Double Agent
Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict

Xbox 360
Asura’s Wrath
Battlefield 2: Modern Combat
Enchanted Arms
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
Far Cry Classic
Far Cry Instincts Predator
Infinite Undiscovery
Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie
Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands
Skate
Star Ocean: The Last Hope
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
Syndicate
Too Human
Unreal Tournament III

Most of the games are available now; it seems that Too Human will be added shortly and be free to download.

While I am impressed with the Xbox 360 list, the Original Xbox list is pretty feeble, in hindsight it was just something to get momentum going until their new gamepass model was ready to launch properly. Happy we got some, but so many great oXbox games I would have loved to see.

I would've like to see more oXbox as well. I have a soft spot for the console. I really think Halo CE and Halo 2 were a must and a big miss. I realize they wanted folks to buy the MC Collection, but this would've been great fan service.

It ended at 29 oXbox titles. We did get some cult following & fan favorite games like:
Destroy All Humans
Psychonauts
Panzer Dragoon Orta (unlock original PD within)
Black
Conquer's Bad Fur Day
Fuzion Frenzy
Blinx
Morrowind
Crimson Skies
7 Star Wars Games
4 Splinter Cell Game

I think we saw all the Star Wars and Splinter Cell games. That's a win there. To be fair, the 360 supported a ton of oXbox games. The One supports a ton, 500+, of 360 games. You can pick up a 360E for $80 bucks if your oXbox is long gone or you're worried about longevity. The PS4 supports no PS2 games (same gen) via disc. Pretty cool I can pop in my 20 year old oXbox Black disc and it will work. Yeah, I realize it DLs a patched copy but I don't have to buy it. I'm finally going to pick one up here towards the end of the gen :lol:. While not a huge draw, it's a nice bonus.

Really glad the OG Splinter Cells made it. Also don't forget about the free DLC for some of the OG Xbox games and the 8 Rare games that got X Enchanced!

There is a few games I still wanted to become BC but I got more than I expected to. Hopefully once Scarlett comes out, they'll release more titles.
