You should just go ahead and post this as breaking news now.  I still can't launch it, but it's only a matter of time.

I've never played BWC games on the Xbone. How does it work? Did you have to put your old disc in and it's prompts you for a DL?

It works very well.

Recently added backwards compatible titles are re-offered digitally, at the top of the list (which will prompt new sales), for both Xbox 360 and original Xbox. Also, with a growing number of titles there are emulation based graphical enhancements in resolution and performance.

If you already own an original Xbox or Xbox 360 disc for a title that is added, those will also now work with your XBO.

So you can just straight up purchase it on the Xbox Marketplace if you don't own an older copy?

Yes. You should really check it out next time you're on XBL, there's a whole backwards compatible section. Been loving the nostalgia injection of playing original Xbox games like Knights of the Old Republic and SSX 3 with the new Hyperkin Duke controller.

Better than very well.  All of my backwards compatible 360 games have, at the very least, a smoother frame rate on the X1.  Some are enhanced even more for the Xbox One X (which is what I have).

I wish every 360 game I owned was playable on the X1 so I could experience them without the hardware limitations of their original platform.

So you can just straight up purchase it on the Xbox Marketplace if you don't own an older copy?

If you're lucky, it'll be on sale (or free) soon.  Do you have Xbox Live Gold?

The deals change every Tuesday.

Well, if it's given away next month as GWG, that'll be awesome. My copy is for PS3, though... Bah.

I wonder if they're going to time it for November around the home release for The Predator.

That's the best thing that could happen for AvP's multiplayer community.  It would instantly have thousands of new players getting into it for the first time.

If it's a free download, everyone with Xbox Live Gold will get it.   That goes for every Xbox Live Gold subscriber with either a 360 and/or an X1.  That's a lot of people.
