At Gamescom 2015, Microsoft announced an expansion to the Xbox Live Games with Gold program, notably that all future Xbox 360 games with Gold titles will be backwards compatible on the Xbox One.
With this announcement, fans the Xbox now only need one console to enjoy both new old games instead of requiring two.
The Xbox One backwards compatibility program has been well received by gamers and critics alike, allowing gamers to dive into their old games on the Xbox One with little to no hassle. All they have to do is download the available titles and then sit back and relax.
Undoubtedly, the fact that only future Xbox 360 games with Gold titles will be backwards compatible might limit the number of games that Microsoft will be able to select from for the Xbox Live Games with Gold program. Even so, it will ensure that those that want nothing to do with the Xbox 360 can still play them when they become available.
Xbox One backwards compatibility will be live for all gamers in November 2015. Too bad the PlayStation 4 doesn’t have
something like it.
