Pay for games you already own......AGAIN!

This is the future.
And it's how things will continue to be. I paid for The Thing on VHS, then on DVD, then on Amazon. I paid for Faith No More - The Real Thing first on cassette, then on CD, then on mp3, now on Spotify. I bought XCOM first on disk, then on CD, then on Steam.

But this doesn't seem to be the case, no? If you own the Halo 1 Xbox disc, you can put it into your Xbox One and play it... at no additional cost. Unless you've read something I haven't.

If you still have the disc. I recently stopped hording them as playing old games wasn't as nostalgic as I thought it was going to be. I think they are banking more on people buying digital, which is what they have milked on the online store for years.....

I had to laugh a bit in the article
Compatibility is important to Xbox, to developers and their games, and our community.

Really? Is that why you killed it years ago? Just to now resurrect it? The library is HUGE for xbox and 360 - I don't see this going far with the physical media copy.
