No, I mean, I know that XBLA won't be backwards compatible. I mean, if you bought the game and your 360 breaks, if it's not backwards compatible and they shut the 360 XBLA service down, you're not getting your games again.
Also re: good graphics/small teams/production values:
First, I don't think graphics have improved THAT much since the PS2-gen. They're subtle improvements -- more detail, better lighting, things that look great in still imagines but get tuned out if you either have a small TV or are only focusing on what's actually happening in the game. Those little details require a lot of effort but they're not really making THAT much a difference as far as I'm concerned. It's a waste of money.
Second, Euro Truck Sim 2 is one of the prettiest goddamn games I have ever played and SCS employs like 20 people total and I don't even know if they have a budget.
