Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

In 2013, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles were released, and it was a disaster as none of them were backwards compatible in the least. Both Sony and Microsoft ignored the pleas from fans and still didn’t deliver in any capacity. Sony started to offer selling PS2 titles for download only as a means to be somewhat backwards compatible. There is a list of confirmed games for backwards compatibility on the Xbox One. Here are some of them:

And many more. It’s quite a long list of games, but that goes to show just how passionate Xbox has become about backwards compatibility. They’re even taking it further and implementing backwards compatibility in all their future consoles, starting with the Scorpio. The way backwards compatibility works on the Xbox One is simple:

There Are Two Ways To Do It

• If you wish to use your Xbox 360 digitally downloaded games, go to the “Ready to Install” section on your Xbox one and find them there and install them.
• If it’s a disc-based Xbox 360 game, all you have to do is insert the disc into your Xbox One and then the console will automatically start downloading the game you put in on your hard drive.
