San Andreas: present

The Sims Busting out: absent

If you want to know WHY it's like this, it's the fact that the first xbox ran with nvidia, but they got into some dispute with microsoft and the 360 uses ATI hardware. So, ATI has to pretend to be nvidia to play the xbox games - not easy.

It's a software emulator that powers backward compatibility and as anyone who knows anything about emulators will tell you they can be tricky beasts to get working especially for the more recent consoles. Ye olde PS2 and Ye newe Wii had the guts of their predecessors inside them (PS1 & GC respectively) hence them having no problems with any game.
