Smile Backwards Compatibility?

Will the Xbox 360 Serious Sam collection get backwards compatibility? Would be nice playing it on my Xbox one

Sadly there's no Serious Sam game on the backwards compatibility list yet. Add that page to your bookmarks and check it out every once in a while, as backwards compatibility is being worked on.

Well, I don't know the politics behind backwards compatibility or who adds support for it, but that link I posted is the official Xbox site, so Microsoft updates it whenever a new game is added to the list. It's always good to have a central location to find this stuff, if only Sony would add proper backwards compatibility.

My understanding is that the growing backwards compatibility list largely stems from Microsoft, with developers providing the greenlight. Since backwards compatibility is done through emulation of the 360 architecture, there isn't a whole lot of development involved and is more focused on bug testing.

I think it will be a long time (if ever), before we see the collection on the list. Unfortunately, it isn't exactly a widely known title and think it is pretty low on the priority list.

if you can get or already have a pc, grab them on steam and play with a gamepad, that's what i do when i want to relax. serious sam 2 the pc port is really good now since they added native 360 controller support, plus you can get a better fov for player view and weapons.

i had an xb1 for a while but ms are real slow at adding games to backwards compat and there wasn't enough content to make me keep it.
