In this <b>March 2006</b> update, three new games made it on the list: <b>BLACK™</b>, <b>Star Wars Battlefront™ II</b> and <b>World Soccer Winning Eleven 9</b>.

Along with the new games, several games were updated with bug fixes. The most notable part of this update was the omission of <a href="http://www.trmk.org/games/mkd/">Mortal Kombat: Deception</a>. During the <b>Xbox 360</b> initial launch, <b>Microsoft</b> announced that <b>Mortal Kombat: Deception</b> was among the list of initial <b>Xbox</b> games that could be played on the <b>Xbox 360</b>. Unfortunately, the emulation was not playable at all, which we detailed in our <a href="http://www.trmk.org/features/Mortal_Kombat_Deception_on_Xbox_360/">Mortal Kombat: Deception on Xbox 360</a> feature. Shortly after our feature was published, <b>Microsoft</b> removed <b>Deception</b> from the backwards compatibility list in the <a href="http://www.trmk.org/news/16308/mortal_kombat_deception_removed_from_xbox_360_list.html">December 2005 update</a>, stating <a href="http://www.trmk.org/news/8403652/microsoft_comments_on_mk_deception_on_xbox_360.html">quality issues</a>.

The earliest that <b>Mortal Kombat: Deception</b> could return was in this <a href="http://www.trmk.org/news/8404141/earliest_mk_deception_on_xbox_360_return_march.html">March 2006 update</a>. Now that this update has passed without the reintroduction of <b>Deception</b>, <b>Mortal Kombat</b> fans will just have to wait a few more months to get their <b>Mortal Kombat</b> on <b>Xbox 360</b> fix.
 
Word for the wise.

If you get a 360 , Do not , I repeat DO NOT play xbox games on the 360. The emulater is very bad and screws up textures , models , sounds , and lags . So if you have a regular xbox and get a 360 , just play your reg xbox games on the reg xbox and not the 360. When i get my 360 im not even gona try halo 2 on it becuase of the many problems the emulater cuases. Im just goan play that on my reg xbox.
 
Halo 2 runs great on the 360. The games that are supported are supported pretty well, some more than others.

Um, i have played a few games on the 360, and they run much more smooth than they do on the regular xbox. Since you don't own a 360, how do you know that the emulater is bad?
