Microsoft Is Now Branding Retail Xbox 360 Games As Backward Compatible

Microsoft's move to support backward compatibility is just one of the reasons why it has gained huge momentum during the past year. Consumers like more games to play, and this is just one way of significantly increasing the library volume.

Microsoft most recently added Skate 3, LIMBO, and The Orange Box to its list of supported titles.
