So most people who have been following Xbox One's backwards compatibility title knows that Assassin's Creed is finally BC! I was very excited to get an opportunity to go back through these titles one by one beginning with the original. I placed the disk into the game and it downloaded like normal but after playing a short time, the game crashed. I reloaded from the last check point and it again crashed at the same spot. Thinking there was a problem with the download, I exited and checked my achievements tab out of habit and I saw something very strange. There are 2 separate Assassin's Creeds downloaded to my profile, one is the typical green and white Xbox 360 logo along the left side of the game image while the other contained a grey platinum hits logo across the top. This is a profile that has never played an Assassins Creed game up until this point and I do not even own the Platinum Hits version of the game. As you can see from the attached image, one shows progress out of 1000G while the other says 0G/0G. The game keeps crashing at the same point in time (when obtaining a flag in Masyaf on the NE side). I called Microsoft and they said to delete the profile and re-download it and also to delete the install of the game and reinstall that also. As you can imagine, that did absolutely nothing but waste my time and patience. I know that the emulator that is used in backwards compatibility does not download from the disc and only uses the disc for the licenses. The game that says 0G does not show up on my friends view when they look at my profile but is on my screen. I told Microsoft and they then classify it as an unknown issue and I am currently waiting for someone "with more information" to contact me at a later time. I am posting this here to see if anyone has experienced this with any of their backwards compatible titles or is this truly just a freak incident? Any information would be appreciated and for the time being I am reinstalling Assassin's Creed for the 3rd time so I can play it.
I want to know your thoughts. But in the meantime, here's mine. Now, lets get one thing clear before I get started... I can see the idiot race saying, "I own you console, bow to me as I can play any old game I wan't! You fucking peasants". The real PC gamers know that generations on that platform don't really exists since it's upgradable hardware. I'm not dissing this at all, it's an advantage of PC gaming, even though a PC upgrade can cost as much as a console, and you do it more often, but either way just leave this topic the fuck alone! Now that's out of the way... Gaming on consoles it's about using the same set of hardware over a period of time at a lower cost, enjoying the exclusives and the convenience and comfort of sitting on your couch an enjoying a game or other media. Backwards compatibility is something we want each time a new console comes out, but is it really a worthwhile thing? You can still play your prev' gen games on you prev' gen console. I don't buy a new console to play old games on it, I wanna play new games, and it's this that brings value to new consoles. Backwards compatibility is a good thing, but I feel it's an expendable extra, rather than a necessary feature. Recent consoles rely on Internet allot more than previous ones, and since servers are an ongoing cost, after people stop buying the game, it's only a matter of time 'till the support for that game ends. It makes BC for 8th gen' even less worthwhile that older generations. I define full backwards compatibility as a console where you can use any old cartridge or disc on the same system and play the game. Simple as that. No add on's, no emulators, no restrictions and no downloads from XBL or PSN. I'm also talking about home consoles, not handhelds. Even so, the amount of consoles that have full BC number fairly low. Now I could be wrong and if I am correct me, but here is the list as I know it; Intellelevision 2 Atari 7800 Playstation 2 Nintendo Wii Nintendo WiiU Playstation 3 (The original 60 GB version only) And that's it, not a long list is it? This feature is overrated, and the game companies know. Feel free to disagree, and if you have any corrections, let me know and I'll amend this list.
