Xbox One backward compatibility
You would now be able to play your favourite Xbox 360 games on Xbox OneMicrosoft

Microsoft has just announced a list of Xbox 360 games that you would be able to play on your Xbox One, once the backwards compatibility feature is made available with the new Xbox One Experience incorporating Windows 10 operating system on 12 November. Without paying any additional amount you can play all your favourite games such as the full series of Gears of War, Assassin's Creed II, Fallout 3, Borderlands, and Castle Crashers on Xbox One.

The initial list contains 104 Xbox 360 games. As noted by Mike Ybarra, director of programme management for Xbox, starting 12 November all the Xbox 360 games that are available through Games and Gold will be playable on Xbox One.

Note that games and availability are subjected to change. If you don't find your favourite titles listed, you can visit the Xbox Feedback option and vote for the Xbox 360 games you wish to be added to Xbox One backwards compatibility.

However, this list is not all, as Microsoft promises to add hundreds of more titles starting December. They include Halo Reach, Halo Wars, Call of Duty: Black Ops 1, Bioshock, Bioshock 2, Bioshock Infinite, and Skate 3.

"At Xbox, we believe that gaming is universal and should be enjoyed by everyone, everywhere. Our philosophy since launching Xbox One two years ago has been to put gamers at the center of everything we do and create the best, most seamless gaming experience possible. We're taking a major step forward in that journey on November 12 when we start rolling out the New Xbox One Experience with Xbox One Backward Compatibility," said Mike Ybarra in a posting on Xbox Wire.
