Xbox 360 gets 66-game backwards compatibility update

by: Dan -
Microsoft had one more trick up their sleeve today as they announced a 66-game backwards compatibility update for Xbox games on the Xbox 360. Despite what some non-believers have thought, Microsoft has reiterated that they are continuously working on backwards compatibility update for the Xbox library where it makes sense. The news even caught Major Nelson off guard as he broke the news to the community. See the full list of this update after the jump.
From Major's blog:

July 2007 Back Compat update
Whiule I've been crazy busy down here at E3, the team back in Redmond has been busy with a Back Compat update update. (yea, it was a surprise to me too!) The latest backwards compatibility update is now available over Xbox Live (or will be very soon.) This free update brings the complete list of original Xbox games that you can play on your Xbox 360 to way 300. Remember, your original Xbox games will look better than ever on Xbox 360 running in 720p and 1080i with anti-aliasing. You can also play cross-platform between Xbox 360 and the original Xbox over Xbox Live.

When I get back to Redmond next week, I'll kick out an updated PDF file that will contain ALL the updates. For now, here is what the July ''07 update contains:
