    So, yeah, they updated the BC list with a few titles and it looks like Skullgirls is one of them! So I'm sure that'll be good news to the five people on here that own one. (Psst: I'm one of them :V )

    Added bonus: Witcher 2 is also on that list an is apparently free right now (dunno if you need Gold for it or not).

    huh... i legit didn't think SG would make it into that list. Welp hope people they have fun on Xbox1. I'm just curious if that means the game will run a tad smoother compared to just being on the 360. Last I remember the game still dipped frames (down to 40 or something like that) when a ton of stuff was happening at once like Double Horn Crushes, Squigly's Song Notes and Bikes.

    Huh, it's even better than I thought.

    So the version you download on the XBone is better than the original 360 one. That seperate compatibility download you had to do is gone. It's all rolled into one now.

    i guess that's good. Test out the game if you get a chance. It would suck if some weird bug popped up now of all times due to it playing on the Bone.

    Won't be able to do that today as I've got to work!
    Definitely better than nothing: all your dlc carries over, don't have to worry about a compatibility pack anymore and you can play people still on their 360s. How well it works remains to be seen. BC stuff has been hit or miss at times.

    This is Encore, too, right? If so, then that's really nice. No need for Lab Zero to worry about making a version for XB1 natively.

    Can anyone confirm for us whether or not it's possible to download the Squigly, Big Band, Eliza, or color pack DLC through the Xbox One store? When we tried it, it just said "Bundle only" and doesn't let you get them.

    Beo and RF worked just fine.

    No clue. I went to manage game (press the menu button on the game icon) and downloaded all my dlc through that.

    All of it worked though apparently I forgot to snag robo fortune for free so you get another 5 bucks from me :V

    Is there a hope for xbone edition along with 360 crossplay and no xbone fightstick?
    Literally all the ps features also being in Xbox?

    Also, when is lobbies for consoles?

    Lobbies, I *think* are, supposed to be implemented when the last edition is released. So, vita. Don't quote me on that though.

    Also don't hold your breath on your first question. The PS4 and Vita version exists by money from outside sources. Unless somebody else wants to pony up for it this is as good as it gets.

    And all of them worked fine? Yay! Not sure why they were showing up as "Bundle only" for us. Hmm...

    Chances of a dedicated Xbox One port are slim to none. Exclusivity with Sony is 1 year from release, and we don't think enough people will be interested in a port that long afterward, nor is there funding for that.

    Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't you be able to play 360 players by playing the newly backwards-compatible version on Xbox One?

    The backwards-compatible fightstick thing is PlayStation-only. Not because we're jerks, but because we aren't able to do something like that on Xbox One.

    Lobbies will (finally) be finished up after the Vita version is released. The Vita version will not launch with lobbies.

    Probably because there's no way to buy 360 dlc through the Xbox One store at the moment. You either have to go online or do it through the 360 interface. If you load up the game on Xbox one and pick the store option you can buy it there and it'll work.

    And yes, playing the bc version should let you play with people on just 360s.
