Remember that you don’t have to pay for the games again if you already have them on disc or digitally. And just like all previously-announced backwards compatible games, players have access to all of the features the Xbox 360 possess. This means you keep your Gamerscore, game saves, add-ons, and achievements.

Additionally, you gain access to features the Xbox One provide, such as taking screenshots, streaming and recording in-game DVR clips. You also will be able to play online with other players, no matter which generation of hardware they play the game on.


Backwards compatibility for the Xbox One was announced at this year’s E3 press conference. The service officially launched November 12. Since then, Mircosoft announced that over 9 million hours of Xbox 360 gaming has been on their current-gen hardware. Microsoft has also said that their most popular Xbox 360 titles have been Fallout 3, Gears of War 3, Just Cause 2, Assassin’s Creed II, and DiRT 3.

With these latest additions, the number of backwards compatible Xbox 360 games increases to 120 titles and counting for the Xbox One.
