Microsoft announces Xbox One backward compatibility
Finally, in a win for Xbox gamers, Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One will soon be compatible with a host of Xbox 360 games, and at no extra cost!
Here’s great news for Xbox gamers; Microsoft, at its 2015 E3 conference, has announced that the Xbox One will soon get backward compatibility with Xbox 360 games. And this will work with both digital and disc-based titles, so you can bring to life your collection of Xbox 360 games.
The programme is available right now only to Xbox Preview members, but Microsoft will give it a wider launch come fall this year. There will be over 100 Xbox 360 titles for the Xbox One in the fall and many more will be added each month. The games already available under this program include Mass Effect, Perfect Dark, Super Meat Boy and Zuma, among others.
If you want to get your favourite game fast-tracked to the XBO, Microsoft has a forum where fans can vote for the Xbox 360 games they want to be part of the XBO backward compatibility programme. So far, Red Dead Redemption, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Skyrim and Halo: Reach occupy the top spots. Go here to vote for your favourite Xbox 360 game.
