Today, Larry Hryb, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, announced that Xbox 360 games Mafia II and Prey are now backward compatible. Both games are two of the heavy-hitters fans have been requesting for months now.
Mafia II is a third-person shooter that provides a look into the dark and unforgiving world of the mob. Expanding on the original hit, this new incarnation takes players even deeper into the mafia with a mature and exciting experience that allows players to explore the world as they wish and immerses them in it like never before. The game is supposed to be a complete gangster movie experience, with a wide variety of combat — including vehicular — and much more.
In Prey, gamers enter an unpredictable world where nothing can be taken for granted. You step into the shoes of Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic stuck on a reservation, going nowhere. When an otherworldly crisis awakens spiritual powers from his long-forgotten birthright, he and his girlfriend are abducted by aliens who need him to save the planet.
