Noticed that Midnight Club L.A. is now backwards compatible. Another two Rockstar games should join the list today including Rockstar Table Tennis and there was another one that I’m not sure many people played, San something...

Need for Speed: Payback is now available via the EA Vault.

Wasn't that impressed with the demo but this will cover my racing addiction until Crew 2 arrives later this month...

A quick update on San Andreas backwards compatibility. It hasn’t appeared on my Ready to Install list yet. I’ve read that if you switch your location to Germany it will appear which I have verified but I think their version is censored so you might want to wait. Both the original and 360 version will be B/C but owners of the Original Xbox version will automatically get the 360 version.

Edit: had a quick play of San Andreas last night and I think it is basically the mobile version, that isn’t entirely a bad thing since the textures were improved for that release. However, I really used to appreciate changing the mini map to blips only which you can no longer do. As somebody with bad eyesight I find some of the coloured blips to be really hard to see.

I also recorded some clips and the sound was completely muted. Not sure if this is deliberate or an issue relating to DVR but I tried recording clips from another game right after without issue. I still uploaded some clips though which shows the location of some weapons near Grove Street and it was also reassuring to see you can still change the size of the moon with a sniper rifle (just as you could in GTA 3 and Vice City).

GTA IV recently had a huge cull of its music but I managed to download it before the update. San Andreas has long since lost tracks that were in the original release (not as many as GTA IV, but still significant...). Big losses include Rage Against the Machine from Radio X and Tom Petty from K-DST.

Not bad, I do worry that MS is becoming like EA and buying up studios only to close them down later though
