Xbox Originals: Microsoft Cautions Users About Issues  

0 comments

Microsoft warns users about possible issues with 'Xbox Originals' - the Xbox1 games that will be downloadable from Xbox LIVE on your Xbox360 starting December 4th.

From xbox.com
There are some known issues with Xbox Originals. With all game titles, publisher logos at the start of a game can be choppy on first play when caching. Also, any additional content within a game (such as a demo or trailer) is not supported by Xbox Originals titles and selecting those options may result in crashing the game (requiring a restart of the console).
There are also some issues unique to specific game titles, as follows:
* Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge: There is some minor flickering at the top of the screen that happens very rarely. The "Press A to Continue" message is missing when the host player leaves a multiplayer game. Additional content within the game (such as demos & trailers) are not supported and selecting those options may result in crashing the game (requiring a restart of the console)
* Fable: There are some random bursts of audio static and some minor texture issues and a short hang up when removing tattoos. Additional content within the game (such as demos & trailers) are not supported and selecting those options may result in crashing the game (requiring a restart of the console)
* Fuzion Frenzy: There are some minor frame rate issues. Additional content within the game (such as demos & trailers) are not supported and selecting those options may result in crashing the game (requiring a restart of the console)
* Halo: There are some very mild frame rate drops.
* Psychonauts: HDMI 720p is not supported for PAL users. Running the game in 720p over HDMI will result in the game locking up for PAL users. If you are using HDMI output, set the resolution to 1080i or 1080p (anything but 720p)

Confirmed for release on Dec. 4, Xbox Originals come bundled with the upcoming Xbox 360 update on the same day. Originals cost $15 (1200 MS points).Additionally, Xbox Live (which turns five on Thursday) surpassed the 8 million member mark -- the most of any online console community. In commemoration, Microsoft is offering a free Xbox Live Arcade download between 12:01 a.m. PST on Nov. 15 and 11:59 p.m. PST on Nov. 16. Furthermore, every active member who joined the service in 2002 will receive 500 MS Points for free.
