Its all they have. Let the poor xbots have their fun. Its not their fault that their exclusives are so pitiful, piss-poor and underwhelming that they have to attach themselves to the success of their last-gen machine. Its kinda like these guys running around with rebel flags. Living in the past...back when things went their way.

Hell, mid has made more threads on wrinkly, stale old games than he has for any of the new ones. that shows just how excited he is over these "amazing" exclusives.

This is exactly right. It's good fan service and a nice-to-have. It matters. How much it matters is relative. Getting limited scope software emulation BC a couple years into the generation? Certainly better than nothing. Also certainly not a megaton.

I was thinking about buying an x1, but since the only games worth of shit to play on it have already been out for 5 years, I'll just stick with the piece of shit xbox I already have.

thanks obama

So Sony spent a ton of money on Goku and the PSNow service, and MS spent a ton of money on BC support because they just don't matter anymore?

Seems PS4 users like to pay to play their old games.
Updated versions? Sure, why not. You guys don't seem to have a problem with the fact that 2/3 of the year's XBONE lineup is cross-gen.

Also, Journey's cross-buy compatible, so it's free for people who had it on PS3. Still, nobody really counted Journey to begin with.

As for Tearaway... Barely anyone played that game on Vita, so for most people? It's not going to be an "old game" especially since it's mostly new content to boot, not a remaster.

I would assume this is the same reason you haven't bought a PS4.

Now Xbox users are being compared to racist southerners.
