PAL Xbox 360 users who tried using the console’s backward compatibility to play Panzer Dragoon Orta may remember that the game crashed at the start of Episode 4. In a surprise move, Microsoft has now apparently patched this bug, as pointed out by Kimimi on Twitter who posted screenshots of the game’s transition from Episode 3 to Episode 4 on a PAL Xbox 360. In the past the game would always crash there, but a 6MB update that will be installed when you start the game while connected to Xbox Live finally resolves this problem.
It’s reasonable to assume that this is the result of Microsoft working on the Xbox One backward compatibility for the game, and apparently in doing so they figured out the problem with the PAL version and backported the fix to the Xbox 360. While it would have been nice had they fixed the problem all those years ago, it’s still a pleasant surprise to see them update the game now. Better late than never!
