Microsoft Brings 16 More Games To Xbox One Via Backwards Compatibility

Microsoft continues to please Xbox One fans with another wave of backwards compatibility titles from the Xbox 360. The company noted that since its launch last month, alongside The New Xbox One Experience, players logged more than nine million hours playing Xbox 360 titles on Xbox One.

In November, 104 Xbox 360 titles were available to play on Xbox One. This month, the list contains only 16 games. However, it does include some favorites such as Braid, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Halo: Reach and Portal.

It’s likely that Microsoft will have another round of Xbox 360 games with backwards compatibility next month, but the company is offering you a chance to have a say in what titles should be picked for consideration by voting on the Xbox Feedback page. The top three contenders are Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Bethesda Game Studios’ The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption.

    Oh good, the memorable classic, Doritos Crash Course. The seminal potato chip simulator of 20-whatever-year. So glad this can be played on the modern generation of consoles again.

    Or they could just concentrate on the PC and never have to worry about backward compatibility again.

    @ innocent bystander: You're probably too young to remember all the great games that came out for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 that no longer play on modern PCs...like Wing Commander.

    Seriously. There are even some XP games that are a pain to get running on just two versions of Windows later. Backwards compatibility is always going to be a big problem on any platform. Nintendo are being the good guys with their Virtual Console and the Wii U being compatible all the way back to Gamecube games. But I feel like their generosity in that regard is going to have to end soon.

    Yeah, but if they don't support a game you want to play, you're boned.

    Why the fxxk a 3 years old console still care about to play some old games? Is it because it doesn't have enough new exclusive?

    Because a lot of them got rid of their 360s and old games are fun to revisit. I replayed Bioshock not too long ago. Not like I don't have plenty of other games to play.
