Back before Christmas, I had pondered getting an XBox 360. Hey, it would let me play the new Pacman, and that Braid game sounds really good.
So I’d have to keep the old XBox going to play them. That sucks.
And at least one of them is a Microsoft game.
- Midtown Madness 3
- Shrek 2
- Wallace and Gromit
- Midway Arcade Classics
- Pro Evolution Soccer 4
Evidently each game needs an emulation profile. Which means I suppose that alas the XBox 360 is not sufficiently advanced as to be able to fully and properly emulate the original XBox, which is why each game needs to be made compatible individually.
We ended up getting a Wii for Christmas. Admittedly the old XBox hasn't been switched-on since.
At least Nintendo do their backward compatibility properly. Having seen how Microsoft's dealt half-heartedly with the old XBox, I wouldn't have wanted to buy into another technological dead-end.
I might see what's out there to turn it into a Media Centre instead.
