Question
The Xbox 360 rules!  You seem to be the perfect candidate for these questions.  If you don't know the answers, it is no biggie; so please do not worry about it.  I still own the original Xbox console and was really looking forward to playing the following games on the 360 controller because it would be so much easier given the fact the it now has the left and right shoulder buttons!  Today is 06/30/07 and I just checked the Xbox website and found out that the following games are STILL NOT on the backwards compatibility list.  Could you perhaps shed some light on this matter to as why these games are still unplayable on the Xbox 360.  I mean, these games would benefit greatly from the redesigned control pad!  Could you also tell me which characters you use on the following games too?  Except for "Sudeki" because you can't choose your character.

(1) Marvel vs Capcom 2 (Iron Man, War Machine, & Sentinel)
(2) Splashdown (Haily Hollister in the red outfit)
(3) Capcom vs SNK 2: Mark Of The Millenium (Cammy & Sagat)
(4) Sudeki (I love RPGs & would rate it 6.5 / 10 stars)

Also, why is it that "Dead Or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball" and "Tenchu: Return From Darkness" are not playable on the 360?  Is the reason behind this because of the fact that "Dead Or Alive: Xtreme 2" and "Tenchu Z" was released for the 360?  Just because a "new" version of the game is released, it doesn't mean that people don't want to play the "old" version too?

Answer

360 backwards compatibility is based on the titles popularity its not any other system which is a bummber because splashdown was an old favorite of mine too. anyways microsoft is winding down the B/C updates so maybe one or two more decent sized updates and there done with backwards compatibility so they can put those people to more next gen work. yea i also understand what you mean by the old one too but again they haven't updated the backwards compatibility since december of 06.
