Shenmue on Xbox 360

Microsoft updated the list of backwards compatible Xbox 360 games on the Xbox website, only to retract the update a few hours later. We’re not sure why, but it was a good mixture of new Xbox titles (Family Guy, Scarface, Splinter Cell: Double Agent), old titles (I-Ninja, Pariah, Shark Tale) plus a few that I really want to play again (Shenmue II, Psychonauts and Fahrenheit). No sign of making the Midway Arcade Treasure and Taito Legend collections playable on 360 yet though.

It’s doubtful that the update has vanished for good. They’ve probably just postponed it for a bit. Oh, and that headline? Technically correct, I think you’ll find. Yep, the law would definitely be on my side on that one.
