What do we know about It?
So, after a few months of the Xbox One’s release, Microsoft decided to add backwards compatibility to Xbox One so that players who previously owned an Xbox 360 could play their Xbox 360 titles on the Xbox One.
And here’s what the official Microsoft website says about their backwards compatibility, “Now you can play over 300 Xbox 360 games on Xbox One. Experience both generations of games on one console, including digital and disc-based titles, with advanced features like Game DVR and in-home streaming to Windows 10. Keep all your game saves, add-ons, and hard-won achievements from Xbox 360. And with your Xbox Live Gold membership, you can even play multiplayer games and chat with friends across Xbox One and Xbox 360. Plus, Games with Gold titles for Xbox 360 are now playable on Xbox One, giving you more free games to play every month when you own an Xbox One. Enjoy the greatest games lineup and Xbox 360 classics all in one place — exclusively on Xbox One.”
This will be very advantageous for Xbox One owners, as their Xbox 360 titles will not go to waste, but there is still a limited number of games available for backwards compatibility. Meaning, the games in your Xbox 360 library will appear on your Xbox One library after the update.
The games which are requested after updated to be backwards compatible. During fulfilling some requests, Phil Spencer, Xbox’s boss, teased future compatibility by referring to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 in a tweet which reads, “One of my most anticipated is coming in the next few weeks, some good ones tee’d up. <no comment on BO2>”
This way, it is very beneficial for people who own both. Let’s hope the future consoles have the same thing.
