Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

Arriving November 12, 2015

The New Xbox One dashboard update arrives on November 12, you'll find a tab that shows all your backwards-compatible Xbox 360 titles that you downloaded digitally. To play physical games,
however, you'll need to put the disc in the drive every time you want to play.

In addition, your Xbox 360 saves will carry forward (provided you saved them to the cloud), while all the DLC you bought for the last-generation console will also show up. On top of that, since the Xbox 360 games are technically running on Xbox One, they also support screenshots and GameDVR.

Could they have done this sooner? Shouldn't the next gen console have made the 360 obsolete? That is how Microsoft had put it in the beginning. Either way this will be a very cool update. I am happy I should get some of my games back. Now they need to get back some of those Kinect Games.

The full list of the 100-plus Xbox 360 titles that will be playable on Xbox One through backwards compatibility will be announced this coming Monday, November 9.

Microsoft has high hopes for Xbox One backwards compatibility. Xbox executive Aaron Greenberg says this new feature will help the Xbox One stand out against rival platforms such as the PlayStation 4. So sorry Playstation users, doesn't look like you're in for this one. Yet?....

He added that backwards compatibility, along with Microsoft's game lineup, will lead to a "massive migration" this holiday of Xbox 360 users moving over to Xbox One. Uh Huh. This is what it is about. When the Xbox One came out, not enough people leaped to buy it.

Microsoft has published a new overview video that explains how it works. The video, featuring Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb and FLitz from Smosh Games, covers just about everything you'd want to know. Below...
