Nintendo is being crucified over their downloadable backwards compatibility.

Importantly, too, they've always tied purchases to machines. Microsoft and Sony always tied them to accounts. I think that's a clear indication of where they're going.

At the same time, I'm guessing that the publishers have some say, too. So Carcassone may be tied to your account, but if Sierra (ha!) doesn't want you to have it on a new system they may have the right to stop it

Only one game is multisystem right now, I think, being available for WP8, Windows 8 and Xbox, with the ability to pick up and leave off interchangeably. But, stupidly, you have to buy it 3 times. Eh, maybe not stupidly, as I think it may be 3 different versions. I think future games won't be that way. I mean, it's a poker game, it doesn't need more juice than what a 922 has.
