About Anthony Lasala

When i'm not playing sports video games, you might spot me playing Yu Gi Oh 5DS on Xbox Live.


  1. I was just wondering if there is going to be an update for backwards compatibilty for the orginal Xbox game EA Sports NHL 07- I picked one up yesterday along with EA Sports Tiger Woods 07 and only Tiger Woods would work on my 360-is there going to be an update for NHL 07 soon because I am dieing to play this game and it feels useless right now sitting here and not being able to play it. Please reply back..

    Good question, the last update was on July 12th. There is no telling what game(s) are being work on for backward compatible. I would assume maybe NHL 07 since ESPN NHL 2K5 is updated. I would guess another backward compatible before the end of the year. Why not return and get EA Sports NHL 07 for the xbox 360?

    Well reason I got these two in particular was because they came together in one package at Walmart for $18-so do the math on that one..LOL!!! and I dont think walmart would take back an open disk….anyway, I will wait it out for the next update..

  7. Thanks for sharing these Xbox 360 thoughts. I’m bookmarking this for future reference.
    First we have the Xbox 360 which of course is the next generation in the Xbox line. We also have the Sony PlayStation 3 which is Sony’s newest incarnation of the PlayStation which caused quite a ruckus upon its release, and then we have the Nintendo Wii which on its opening day completely sold out all available units
    I am currently on holiday so, for this reason, I’ve nothing better to do than surf the web for Xbox 360 games, lie around and update my blog. Well, more or less anyway. Doug
