WTF? microsuck is doing the same shit they did with the Xbox360 and I don't think that system ever got to every original Xbox game out there. They just stopped updating that some time back. Why the hell don't they make their systems completely backwards compatible in the damn hardware to play every game right out of the box?

Also remember that most studios exclusively license the game for that console only, its why my PSN library will never be complete without owning all consoles starting from the PSX.

its not a MS problem, its a licensing contract one.
