Xbox One Will Have Backwards Compatibility with Xbox 360 Games

/ Jun 15th, 2015 No Comments

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

Microsoft announced Xbox One will have backward compatibility with Xbox 360 games during its press conference at E3 2015.

Disc-based Xbox 360 will work on Xbox One and digital titles users have previously purchased on Xbox 360 will begin to show up on Xbox One. Users will be able to connect their digital titles through their Xbox Live gamertag.

It was implied that not all games will be backwards compatible, but Microsoft said more than a hundred Xbox 360 titles will be available to play on Xbox One this holiday. During its press conference, Microsoft showed off Mass Effect 3 running on Xbox One. The company released an initial list of games that will be backwards compatible, most of which are Rare titles.

There will be no charge to use backwards compatibility. According to Microsoft’s Larry Hryb, developers will just need to approve titles before they can be played on Xbox One.

Microsoft said members of the Xbox One preview program will be the first to be able to use the new feature.

Quick Take

Backwards compatibility is a huge move for Microsoft. As Sony tries to build up its PlayStation Now service, Microsoft decided not to compete and instead give Xbox owners the ability to play older games. This will no doubt help sell consoles as consumers who still own an Xbox 360 will trade it in and get some value for it to upgrade to Xbox One.
