Run to your Xbox collection! 360 backwards compatibility gets updated

The latest update for Xbox 360 backwards compatibility is here! Some of your favorite Xbox games like Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Jet Set Radio Future, and Outrun 2 are now playable on 360. With E3 2007 going on right now, the timing for this announcement is definitely unexpected, but we’re not complaining.

Back when Best Buy had their huge game sale, I picked up Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay for $2 thinking that it would work on my Xbox 360 … nearly 5 months later and it still refuses to play. Why must you torture my soul, Microsoft?

You guys know the drill; hit the jump to see the newly added/fixed games and pray to God that your favorites are on the list. If they aren’t, yell profanities at your computer monitor or a nearby pet.
