SuperKMx commented on Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility on Xbox ...:

@stylon Indeedy, if you had the High Definition AV Pack, a fair few titles supported higher def output. From what I remember, Crimson Skies supported 480p, while a handful even supported 1080i. I know Enter The Matrix did, even though it was dire!

@Ryno It basically means that for every race you do, you get 2x the experience points that you normally would, and they increase your player level. Your player level unlocks certain events and things such as new car parts (as far as I remember!) but I found that I would have unlocked everything even without the 2x rewards as the game hands them out plentifully.

At the moment, you can only buy Xbox 360 games via the store or via Xbox 360, not on Xbox One. It's something that's being worked on, I'm told.

If you pick them up at, you'll find that they appear on your "Ready to Install" list on your Xbox One though.



SuperKMx commented on Here Are Your Xbox One and Xbox 360 Digital Bl...:

@Ryno It really depends on how you play. If you play a racing game without really caring about the brand or version of the car, then the Standard Edition will serve you well. However, if you play and think "I HAVE to have the 1994 Honda Civic (or whatever) or this game is going to suck" then check out the extra cars that come in the Deluxe Edition.

For my money, the VIP Pass wasn't really worth it. It gives you a five-car pack and 2x player rewards in-game. I didn't see the benefit of that as the game gives out rewards readily enough anyway



SuperKMx commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

@flameboy84 I didn't yet, but I will do over the weekend. He's going to have a tough time of it. There were too many unanswered questions and really vague details on the day it got all the press attention, which were then answered or filled in after everybody had been and gone.



SuperKMx commented on Microsoft's Thank You Gift For NXOE Preview Pr...:

I think one of the problems here is the expectation that was generated which - I'll admit - we're a part of fueling. Nowadays, pretty much any time anyone from Xbox so much as Tweets something like "It's been a good day!", it gets analyzed, reposted, fired up on Reddit, and dissected to death until folks are at fever pitch.

If it was just "hey everyone, here's a free cat thing for your avatar" then that's cool. But because everyone instantly expected "something special" to mean games, store credit, free consoles, extra controllers and all manner of other stuff, it seems somewhat disappointing.

Gotta echo @flameboy84's sentiment about the beta program though. Can't really complain about problems in the beta program when it IS exactly that - a beta program. If the problems become too much, just switch out of the preview program and you'll get the features at the same time as the rest of the world. Hopefully (!) by that point, they'll have been tested and had major bugs squashed. I switched out as it was affecting some titles we had for review, and it took about 48 hours before I was back on the stock dashboard.



SuperKMx commented on Devil May Cry 4 Price Slashed in This Week's D...:

@A_BabyRed_Yoshi Buying Xbox 360 games via the Xbox One is a feature that will be added in due course. For now, you can go to and sign in with your Microsoft account to "purchase" the games from there.

Then head into your "Ready to Install" list on Xbox One and the game will be there for you to download.



SuperKMx commented on Microsoft Takes Swing At Sony With New Backwar...:

@Gamer83 ...good points, but in a fair few cases - oh, I could name some sports titles that I wanted to set fire to... - it was more like "Take a game home, put it in the system, try to play...give up because of the bugs that can't ever be fixed."

On the whole though, you're right of course.



SuperKMx commented on Microsoft Hints at Something Special For Previ...:

@KelticDevil You'll probably have to make your own! Only ever seen them from one tiny take-away place in my town and even I didn't know about it until I was casually browsing the menu yesterday.

"Hold on...this has...this has bacon AND a half-pound of beef AND cheese AND why isn't it in my face yet?!"



SuperKMx commented on Review: WWE 2K16 (Xbox One):

@Captain_Chao5 Yeah, that was one thing I forgot to mention in the review. I was trying to work out how to target a different wrestler in a Triple Threat match for ages and ended up having to Google it, mainly because the site listed in the help section just gave me an error!



SuperKMx commented on Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops III (Xbox One):

@The_Man There are some major flaws with your comment.

I assume you're laughing that the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare that scored 81/100 on Metacritic and which sold circa 18million units could be considered to be "good", right? Absolutely, everyone should just assume your opinion is the fact, and anyone else who disagrees obviously hasn't played the game?

Seems fair.

You wade right in accusing the reviewer of not playing a game he's making distinct comments about and frankly, that made me stop reading the rest.



SuperKMx commented on First 104 Xbox 360 Titles to Support Backwards...:

@JaxonH Honestly, I don't 100% know the answers to any of those questions!

I would imagine that any version of Fallout 3 would work, since the GOTY edition is just the standard game plus the DLC, and the standard version is...well...the standard version. Simply comes down to if Microsoft have enabled the console to read each specific version of the disc, I guess, unless the detection is smarter than that. I really don't know. I can't see that they'd leave one version out though.

Double and triple packs with games on the same disc might be more troublesome. The console just sees what's on the disc and downloads the Xbox One-packaged version of it, but I don't know if there's anything in there to account for two or three games being on a disc at the same time.

As for Mass Effect Trilogy...that's a thinker. Genuinely couldn't say. Mass Effect is available to Preview Program members at the moment, so maybe someone who has the Trilogy version can tell us?!



SuperKMx commented on First 104 Xbox 360 Titles to Support Backwards...:

@Red620Ti Comes down to the devs, mainly. With the third-party titles, the developer has to go to Microsoft and ask for it to be added to the service. Then the devs have to make any required changes to make it work.

Given Majesco's catalogue of games, Bloodrayne is probably about the best they could have come up with.



SuperKMx commented on Pineview Drive Set to Bring More Horror to Xbo...:

@A_BabyRed_Yoshi To be fair, the same could be said of any adventure or horror game though. If you know what's coming, then generally the adrenaline isn't pumping as much. The only difference here is that it ties it into your player's health. Again though, you're less likely to die in any game if you know what's coming



SuperKMx commented on Review: Guitar Hero Live (Xbox One):

@stylon "The white and black colours don't help either... wish they had used up and down arrows."

They have...sort of. The "guitar pick" style icons point either up or down to help you out



SuperKMx commented on Deals With Gold Trims Wolfenstein Down to Size...:

@stylon At the current time, nothing has been confirmed about that, so I'd have to say "no" right now. I'd imagine that next week's list will be jam-packed full of B/C compatible titles, though. B/C list announced on the 9th, new sale list on the 10th.
