More BC titles for Xbox 360

Plus: new update for SFII.  

Microsoft has updated the list of Xbox titles you can play on your 360, bringing the number of backwards compatible games up to nudge the 300 barrier.

And it's not just old tut either. The list includes games that are due for release in the coming months, including Lego Star Wars II, Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run and The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning.

Meanwhile, in a post on his blog, Major Nelson has provided details of a new auto update for Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting.

"The title update will address connection and time out issues that have been reported by players," according to a Microsoft spokesperson.

"In addition, the Leaderboards will be cleared in order to offset players that have cheated by causing intentional disconnections." So there.

Anyways, the new list of backwards compatible titles, and updates (i.e. enhancements or fixes for games that were already BC), looks like this:

  • Aggressive Inline
