''Doomfall: The Longest Journey'' - http://eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=65481

Will soon be available on the 360. Now I can get it for Xbox too!! :P

Heh, someone had Doom on the brain when they wrote that list. Anyway, that is good news. :)

Whats "Doomfall" :D

For me the fact still remains that i need the 360 hard drive which is £69 and a second hand X-Box starts from £49.99...enough said.

So, will there be any difference in graphics quality?

Dasilva 06-13-2006 11:27 AM

Probably, it will look better.

Intrepid Homoludens 06-13-2006 11:45 AM

Oh my god. Those people at Eurogamers are not the least bit childish :shifty:.

Dasilva 06-13-2006 01:34 PM

They did it on purpose? :P

Microsoft has some bad choices for their backwards compatibilty. Sure they have some good ones, I believe Metal Arms was on the first list. But Barbie's Horse Adventure and Bad Boys II? Those were titles infamous for their for their crapiness.

I too still need a harddrive though. ;(

It's a pretty big mistake to make and they don't very much like Dreamfall. :P But maybe I'm just too protective.

Or not...

Nah, EuroGamer are pretty inmature at times and some reviews seem to be written by fan boys more than someone who cant see two sides of a story.

As Microsoft have said again and again. In trying to write emulation programs to get certain games to work it will mean that some other games that use the same technology will also benefit from the emulation fix.

They don't go out of their way to make Bad Boys 2 backwardly compatible it's just a side effect.

Why would it look better at lower resolution? Oblivion certainly didn't.

If sony can make universal backwardly-compatible hardware, why do MS have to emulate?

Scott Nixon 06-14-2006 07:59 AM

Why would an Xbox game look better than a PC developed counterpart? This is not a 360 enhanced version... it's the original Xbox version running on 360's backward compat hardware... it's going to look like an Xbox game, not a 360 game.

Because PS2 handles the problem by also including most of PS1's hardware. Microsoft can't do that because intellectual rights over the main Xbox components belong to NVIDIA and Intel so it wouldn't be feasible.

In some cases games will look better than that, but not nearly as good as native Xbox 360 games.

Dasilva 06-14-2006 09:12 AM

So in theory, Xbox games look much better, the ones I played anyway. Unlike the PS3, all the PS2 & PS1 game will not be 'made pretty'. :P

Intrepid Homoludens 06-14-2006 10:40 AM

:) I played a bit of Crimson Skies: High Road To Revenge and Jade Empire, both Xbox titles, on my 360. I'm not surprised that they both looked good enough, considering they were designed to go up to 480p.

Aren't PS2 games only done for analog TVs?
