My friend got some Xbox games the other day, not knowing that certain games aren't compatible with the 360. 2 out of his 3 games didn't work since Microsoft didn't make them compatible. Do you think this is a stupid idea? i sure do. Seriously, make it 100% compatible, or not compatible. I don't want to have to take a list with me to make sure i don't buy an\ incompatible game. Worst.Idea.Ever Microsoft.

This is why people shouldn't buy games for XBox or PSP. There is no flat-out single standard that applies to all games and games as such shouldn't have individual standards. (And according to Nintendo themselves regarding the DSi, they're not stupid enough to not do that either.)

Those consoles fail, anyway. Seriously, are there any good games for XBox besides Halo (a longshot at best)?

Backward compatibility is an issue indeed, but not so much that it makes a company sucks. Sure, we might want to play old games on our newer consoles, however, I don't think the sole purpose of buying the new gen console is to play old games. IMO, backward compatibility is a privilege, not a necessity.

And of course, there's always other ways, although that involves modding the 360.

Neutral How does PSP fails anyway? I fail to see anything that have anything to do with this issue since PSP is Sony's first handheld. The console even provide support to play PSX games.

Although I can't speak much about XBox since I never own one, 360 have a good array of great games and hardly fail. Star Ocean 4, Infinite Undiscovery, Last Remnant, and Tales of Vesperia are amazing JRPGs. Fallout 3 and Fable 2 are pretty good of Western RPGs. Bioshock and Call of Duty 4 are enjoyable, despite the fact that I hate FPSes. And what the hell, Devil May Cry 4.

360 is an improvement indeed.

To ShamanLord Well there is at least SIX legal methods of playing GBA games

-Game Boy Advance
-Game Boy Advance SP
-Game Boy Micro
-Game Boy Player
-Nintendo DS
-Nintendo DS Lite

The italicized text indicates the devices incapable of play GB/GBC games.

The new additions are a nice upgrade. I love being able to have a lot of fun with a game system without having to stick a game in. However, if you are unsure if you should waste money and already own a DS, you may just want to save your money. If you have no problem paying the cost though, or you still don't own a DS, it's worth the pick-up, as long as you don't mind losing Pal Park (Or not being able to play the DS version of Guitar Hero, but come on! If you like Guitar Hero, go buy a console version of it already!).

As for GBA games, if you have those lying around, odds are, you have a GBA somewhere too. Its no difference playing on a GBA or DS using a GBA game, except for the fact that the DS screen looks sorta brighter.

I'm honestly saying this cause some people don't understand why there's no GBA slot on the DSi.

As for the Pal Park, if you care so much about it keep your DS or DS lite.

@Gnaaye: I'm not jealous of people who have one. In fact I almost have the urge to laugh at them.

@Manaphydude: Don't you think I know all this already? I have a GBA where the buttons are virtually dead. I have a GBA SP that is in practically perfect condition. I have a DS Lite where the buttons are almost dead and the hinge is broken. And I have another DS Lite, which I bought at the same time the DSi was released, that is beginning to show signs of wear. I kept the DS Lite because of the dongle.

And the reason I like to play GBA games on my DS? It has a headphone jack. I love listening to music in the headphones. The quality of it increases by about 3 times.

It's because Nintendo is an idiot. They give it all this good stuff but they forget the best part. Seriously, I believe that GBA games are better than DS games. Over the years I have bought 20+ GBA games and about 10 DS games. Of those, I retain about 12 GBA games and only 3 DS ones. I don't get DS games unless it would be absolutely necessary (read: Pokemon).

In summation:
What the heck does any of this have to do with XBox?

Okay what's wrong with just pointing out that why the Nintendo DSi does not have a GBA slot? To improve portability, without taking away durability. So no Nintendo is not an idiot as they took away the GBA slot for a good reason.
As for the headphones you can do those on a GBA as well. Try and find another one that works.

I do apologize we should get back on topic now.

Just because GBA games are good, the fact that they are GBA games means that they are made for GBA, meant to be played on GBA. I don't see the reason to complaint about not being able to play GBA on NDS. Heck, I don't see anyone complaining about not being able to play SNES games on GBA when SNES had a lot of good games. Oh wait, SNES is not a handheld console so this argument is not valid.

Let's try it again. I don't see anyone complaining about not being able to play SNES games on N64.

In summation:

  • Newer gen console plays newer gen games. Fact.
  • Backward compatibility is a privilege, not a necessity.
  • No company/console sucks. Each has its own fanbase.
  • There's a way to play XBox games on 360 if you really need to. Google iXtreme CFW. Otherwise, buy XBox; it's cheaper nao.
