Xbox One Is Getting Backward Compatibility With Xbox 360 Games


Backward compatibility is coming to Xbox One, and will make the console backward compatible with Xbox 360. 100 titles will be available this holiday, with “hundreds more” scheduled for backward compatibility in the future.


Microsoft confirmed that Xbox 360 retail discs will work on Xbox One, and digital 360 titles will begin showing up on Xbox Live for Xbox One once you insert your discs. All games will be played natively on Xbox One.


Developers and publishers will simply need to approve what titles work with backwards compatibility, Microsoft said. Xbox One backward compatibility is available right now for preview members and will be available to everyone else this holiday
