    Now don't forget this isnt final, and some of these games could creep onto the 360, but it does amount to a lot of succesful games unable to be played on the next gen console.

    My guess is that Microsoft didn't go out of their way to include or exclude any specific titles, except perhaps the all-important Halo games and a few other important titles.

    In other words, I'm pretty sure they wrote an emulator and then tested it to see what worked and what didn't. In the end, Youself Fitness ended up working and Rid$#@! didn't. It wasn't a conscience decision to include one and not the other. It was just a matter of luck based on what did and didn't run on the first version of their emulator.

    I'm sure in the future, later versions of the emu will support more games. This is just the initial list. The only key is, how do you upgrade the emu in the future? That could be somewhat of a nightmare for users. Not to mention the usual glitches and crashes that can happen in with emulation, which might not have been discovered in testing since it doesn't happen until level 8 of the game.

    In all, MS's decision to use emulation for backwards compatibility is a half-assed approach. I just hope it works better than it sounds.
