The official newest Xbox 360 back-compat list

I am the great Xbox and I'm going to throw my games at you...If this list is (a) in Major Nelson‘s blog, and (b) available in PDF format, and (c) available through Xbox.com, then it dang well sure that no one’s gonna pull this list out.

It doesn’t feature all the games on the rumored (and pulled-out) list – hence, probably the pullout. But it also features a couple of new items. Also interesting is that it features some Japan-only games, so just in case your Xbox Live profile hooks up to the Japanese Live, you should also be seeing those Japan-only games playable on your 360s.

For those who don’t have Xbox Live, we’re also making the update from Microsoft available via download below. To get it running on your 360, unzip the file – it should read “default.xex” – and burn it into the root a CD or DVD (don’t place it in a folder). Then feed that disc to your 360 and follow the prompts.
