Microsoft has really been trying hard lately to sweeten the deal for current Xbox fans and possibly captivate a whole new wave of players. The major change we are referring to is the much requested Xbox 360 backward compatibility, just recently introduced to Xbox One.
For anyone unfamiliar with the ambitious undertaking, last month, Microsoft released a major Windows 10-based, update to the Xbox One, complete with backward compatibility with Xbox 360 titles. Seeing how it is quite a complicated endeavor, the process does require a fair amount of work from the EOM so the project was launched with an initial list of 104 supported Xbox 360 games, but also with a promise to periodically enrich the database.
Today, Microsoft has shown commitment to keep said promise with another 16 titles joining the list. Highlights among them include fan favorites, such as Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Fable III, and Halo: Reach. The full list is as follows:
If you own any of these titles as a digital edition or on a disc, they will now work on the Xbox One, as well as any of the other 104 titles, a fully list of which can be found here. The announcement also came with a statement by a Microsoft spokesperson, which hints that legal matters might actually be more of a concern to adding additional titles to the list than technological issues.
We're continuing to work with our publishing partners to grow our library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles … We'll be adding to the catalog on a regular basis.
As an added bonus, since Xbox One also has support for Windows 10 streaming, so you can play all your Xbox titles on your PC as well.
Thanks for the article. Just want to inform all folks who live outside US that Xbox 360 is a great media Player. If you want to access Netflix and other streaming stations on your Xbox 360 you can use UnoTelly as I do to get around the geo block.
