E3: MS updates Xbox 360 Backwards-compatibility list

Finally ... I can play "OutRun" on my 360, but can't play "Riddick." What gives, MS?!

Microsoft has been working hard to get more and more Xbox games playable on the 360. Right now, there are nearly 400 (394 titles) Xbox games playable on the 360. But ... there are some very popular Xbox games that are still unplayable, including:

"Chronicles of Riddick"
"Freedom Fighters"
"Metal Gear Solid 2"
"NFL 2K5"
"All Madden games"
"Midnight Club I, II or III/Dub Edition"
"Xbox Live: Ms. Pac-Man"
and several other titles.

When titles like "Barbie Horse Adventures Wild Horse Rescue," "Catwoman" and "Digimon® Rumble Arena 2" get the nod over more popular games, customers should be concerned.

Here's the new list:
"America's Army"
"Auto Modellista"
"Bass Pro Shops Trophy Hunter 2007"
"Blinx 2"
"Bloodrayne 2"
