Play Xbox 360 Games on Xbox One (List of Games Backward Compatible)



Big news from Microsoft, Xbox One will now be able to play Xbox 360 games! Microsoft made this exciting announcement today in which they said that there will be a Xbox 360 emulator on Xbox One which will exactly bring Xbox 360 dashboard, including the games you have already owned on Xbox 360. But take this news with a pinch of salt as not all the games will become immediately available as Microsoft has to battle out some legal issues with the Game developers. When games were made for Xbox 360, they are only meant to run it and not on Xbox One, so the Game Developers has to come in terms with Microsoft to make their games available on the Xbox 360 emulator.

This means Microsoft owned games will be the first to take stage in the emulator, and slowly we should see others follow through, so this is a time taking process and we should see constant updates on this. 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, you need to insert the disc and the console will begin downloading the game to your hard drive. After the game has finished installing, you will still need to keep the game disc in the drive to play like you used to do on Xbox 360.
