Super Mario Odyssey is absolute joy! How is it that Nintendo has come back with two of the greatest games of all time, both in one year?

Xbox 360 Games Now On Xbox One with Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

Xbox 360 Games Now On Xbox One with Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

Xbox One players will no longer need to have space in the entertainment center occupied by their old Xbox 360. Today, Microsoft announced that Xbox 360 Backwards compatibility is coming to Xbox One this holiday season.

Approximately 100 Xbox 360 titles will be available when Xbox One backwards compatibility launches, with more titles being added via patch regularly. Titles that you have purchased digitally for Xbox 360 will automatically show up in your library once the Xbox One backwards compatibility feature launches.

Developers will only need to approve the title becoming available, no extra technical aspects are needed, as Microsoft has pledged to handle those details themselves.

In a thinly veiled shot at Sony and their PlayStation Now subscription service, Mike Ybarra, Head of Platform Engineering at Microsoft said, “We don’t believe in making you pay to play games you already own.”

More details on Xbox One backwards compatibility will be coming in the days and weeks ahead.

Stay tuned to NerdBacon for our continuing coverage of E3 2015!

    While I am happy that they are finally doing this, they should’ve done it from the beginning. This probably won’t convince me to buy the console, though it’s a start.

  2. Last quote is a bit off, “We won’t charge you for games you already own.” but yeah, definitely a weak, and petty, jab at Sony.

    Also, find the quote ridiculous anyway, after 1.5 years of a significant number of games being Xbox One releases of Xbox 360 games, they have the balls to say that? Should have said, “Sorry that we’re complete idiots that only listen to consumers AFTER we release a product… here’s that thing we should have given you at launch”

    • Along with the fact that currently there’s less than 20 compatible games. I’m not claiming I know all of the factors that come into play to make the One play 360 titles, but it’s a bit of a letdown that instead of full compatibility, we’ll have to wait for select titles to work. Blockbusters will likely be first, with titles like Deadly Premonition and other cult classics maybe never working on One.
