E3 2015: Play Xbox 360 Games on Xbox One

E3 2015: Play Xbox 360 Games on Xbox One
Published by: forahobby on Monday, June 15, 2015
Tagged: Gaming, Live Arcade, Xbox 360, Xbox One,

Microsoft announced today that Xbox One preview members can now play over twenty (20) Xbox 360 games on Xbox One, with over 100 titles slated for release later this year.

Play Xbox 360 games on Xbox One

Backward compatibility on Xbox One will be a standard feature when it launches later this year. The digital titles that you own and are part of the Back Compat game catalog will automatically show up in the "Ready to Install" section on your Xbox One. For disc-based games that are a part of the Back Compat game catalog, simply insert the disc and the console will begin downloading the game to your hard drive. After the game has finished downloading, you will still need to keep the game disc in the drive to play.

Now you can play a growing number of your Xbox 360 games on Xbox One at no additional cost. With over 100 titles slated for this fall, and hundreds more added every month, Xbox One is now the best place to play your Xbox 360 games.
