Microsoft dropped a bombshell at E3 2015 when it announced that the Xbox One will be backwards compatible with Xbox 360 Games starting holiday 2015.
While not all games will be compatible initially, the software giant promises to increase the library over time by adding your digital games from Xbox 360 to your Xbox One library as soon as they go live. Discs games are also compatible -- all you have to do is download the game to your HDD after inserting the discs.
As cherry on the cake, the compatibility is native, meaning you don’t have to stream the Xbox games online or pay a subscription, which Sony does with PlayStation Now.
But wait there is more! Most games deliver a better gameplay experience when they migrate from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One, such as Mass Effect
, which was demonstrated in the video below...
Xbox Live Preview Members can currently try out a library of Xbox 360 games, while everyone else will have to wait until the Holiday Season to gain access to this awesome feature.
Does backward compatibility with the Xbox 360 make the Xbox One more desirable than the Xbox One? If you don’t currently own Microsoft’s next-gen console, are you more likely to buy it now?
