Default Whoo! New BC update! (April 2007)

Microsoft drops another pretty good update for the 360 BC. The added games are:

Tenku (Japan only)
Avatar: The Last Airbender (US)
Avatar: The Legend of Aang (EMEA/ANZ)
Breakdown
Call of Duty 2: Big Red One
Call of Duty 3
Cars
Crash Bandicoot 5: Wrath of Cortex
Daisenryaku VII
FIFA Soccer 2007
Full Spectrum Warrior
Guilty Gear Isuka
Innocent Tears (Japan only)
Jet Set Radio Future
King of Fighters 2002
King of Fighters: Neowave
Mad Dash Racing (Japan only)
Mech Assault 2
Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction
Nascar 2006: Total Team Control
NFL Fever 2004
Oddworld Munch’s Oddysee
Panzer Dragoon Orta
Petit Copter (Japan only)
Phantom Dust
Reservoir Dogs
Return To Castle Wolfenstein
Rugby League 2
Sengoku Warriors (Japan only)
Sonic Riders
Soul Calibur 2 UPDATED
Spider-Man 2
Star Wars: Republic Commando
Street Fighter Anniversary Collection
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07
Tony Hawk’s Underground
Ultra Bust a Move /ULTRA Pazzle Bobble
Unreal Championship 2

Some pretty notable ones in there. Tried out Panzer Dragoon Orta tonight and it looked fantastic in HD, hard to believe it's last gen. Jet Set Radio Future is another one fans have been vocal about getting. Looks like Microsoft is starting to really get some of the critically aclaimed but terribly sold Xbox games on there.

Still painfully absent is Riddick, the other two Prince of Persia games, Beyond Good and Evil, etc... Still though, they're adding more and more. Nice to see them still showing love to people who want HD BC (I'm looking at you PS3...).

Weren't they supposed to be doing these things like every month? We hadn't seen one since December, and it's now almost May. That's nearly five months.

I love my Xbox 360, but I think that this is unacceptable. I wish they could come up with a way just to make all original Xbox games compatible.

Yeah... me too. But If they did it the way the PS3 does it it wouldn't look as good. So it's kind of a trade off. I kinda like it this way because my current favorite game is Ninja Gaiden Black, and it looks INCREDIBLE. They could practicly release it today as is.

NICE!!! Awesome game, surprised they didn't add it earlier. It would be nice if they could make a new Wolfenstein game for the 360 though...
