Forza Motorsport Backwards Compatibility Update

I have to give the Microsoft Xbox team serious Kudos Points for their latest update to the backwards compatibility list. I still do not understand why every single game released after the November 2005 launch of the Xbox 360 is not backwards compatible, but that is a different story. Besides, I am not here (at this moment) to rant.

Forza Motorsport, one of my favorite Xbox titles was/is on the original list of backwards compatible games. The problem was clear however: it ran like shit. Not only was game play hampered by severely long load times and frame rate issues, but the intro video would not even play at full speed! I am sorry, but I cannot see the problem with emulating full motion video, pre-rendered I might add.

All is forgiven after last week's update, as the game loads just as it did on the Xbox, the game play actually feels like I am driving 100 MPH when I am driving 100 MPH, and most importantly, the intro video runs at full speed. All the herky-jerkyness is gone.

So thank you Microsoft.

Now where is the first party solution to move my gave saves over to my Xbox 360 hard drive?
