'Yes, finally,' says a probably very tired Phil Spencer

Ahhh, you hear that? That's the sweet, sweet silence of folks no longer hounding Microsoft about backward compatibility support for Call of Duty: Black Ops II on Xbox One. Today's the day. It's done.

Naturally, some other beloved Xbox 360 game will fill its void, and new requests will rush in.

Assuming you already own Black Ops II and haven't misplaced your copy, you're good to go here. But if you're curious about that Spring Sale, prepare for some sticker shock: even discounted, the digital version of the game is $20 with an Xbox Live Gold membership, and $25 without. Goodness.
