    that's so gay you hae to download support. theres so many people that cant afford xbox live, they cant easily get the updates. maybe some people dont exactly have the knowledge how to sent it over easily from their PC as well.

    ps2 was smarter, support all games out of the box. few have their problems but 85 or 90% worked completely fine

    Most new sports games are not included?

    Sad :sigh:

    Live is free with the 360 though. Inserting the game will promt a window to pop up asking to download and install the emulater

    then on top of that you have to have an internet connection. many people dont have a router, are too cheap for it or have the ability to move the cable over to simply download. its a hassle. something so simple should come out of the box.

    Price of technological advancement, at least they opted for leting you use old games at all.

    (Btw, their not emulations -- their recompiled binarys of the exicutables so they will run on a powerPC processor.)

    Live is "sorta" free. There will be 2 versions of Xbox Live with the 360: Live Silver, and Live Gold. The Silver, which comes with the 360 at launch is free, which allows for general chatting, ability to download extra content and demos, and gives you access to purchase Xbox Live Arcade games. What it doesn't include, yet is part of Live Gold, is multiplayer game access, and exclusive downloads. This is the biggest misleading piece of info that Microsoft seems to have decided not to tell the average gamer.

    Give it a read for yourself.

    Now, the question is this: do you have to be a member of Live Gold in order to download the files that allow for support of more games?

    Indeed. Fact remains most of the people who have the games for the Xbox will have an Xbox to play them on. Who bought a PS2 to play PS1 games?

    If you can't/won't pony up the dollars, you don't get the toys....simple as that.

    Nintendo and sega fans never bitched about having to keep the old hardware to play the old games....why should XBox fans?

    I have never once used a PS1 game in a PS2. Ever. This is a total non issue, IMO, as nobody is going to have XBox games without having an XBox to play them on....and if "switching cables" is such a hassle, people can pay the $20 "laziness fee" and buy an RF switch

    I don't have my PS1 anymore, but i still have some of the best games, like FF8, GT2, and CV:SOTN so I throw them in my PS2 when im in the mood. I only wish that one of major consoles would be compatable with Dreamcast games, then I can finally unplug that mother.

    Could you imagine how cool PS3 would be if you could play DC games......
