The list of Xbox 360 games playable on your Xbox One is growing all the time – we’re at 322 right now – thanks to new games joining the Backwards Compatibility programme. That’s 217 Arcade Games and 105 Games on Demand titles, stats fans! Fun fact: With 99 games on the list, Microsoft Studios has more backwards compatible titles than any other publisher! Some of the most popular Xbox 360 games have already been added – Call of Duty: Black Ops and Red Dead Redemption among them. There are some truly classic arcade titles in the list, too – including Geometry Wars: Retro … Read More »

It’s that time of the week once again. 5pm on a Thursday, Xbox’s Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson reveals the latest additions to the backwards compatibility program. It’s like clockwork, except with occasional Tuesday reveals to throw us off the scent. Today, Major Nelson followed the usual procedure and took to Twitter to reveal the following: TEKKEN 6, Midway Arcade Origins and Mutant Storm Empire are coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today https://t.co/qPMRNrLoTQpic.twitter.com/CmQGOS4hPY — / Larry Hryb / (@majornelson) January 19, 2017 Midway Arcade Origins is okay if you want to relive the glory days of Rampage or Joust, … Read More »

After the strong announcement this past Tuesday, which brought Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3 and Dragon Age: Origins to the backwards compatibility program, the next announcement had a lot to live up to. Striking while the iron is hot, Major Nelson tweeted the next couple of additions to the ever-expanding library. Check them out below: MEGA MAN 9, MEGA MAN 10 and Beat’n Groovy are coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today https://t.co/qPMRNrLoTQpic.twitter.com/YRhZrnypJv — / Larry Hryb / (@majornelson) January 12, 2017 It’s fair to say that unless your interests lie in old school platformers or bizarre rhythm action … Read More »

It’s a new year, the Xbox One is still in it’s prime and we’re in the year of the Scorpio. Despite all that there is still an overwhelming demand from Xbox fans for them to be able to play their favourite Xbox 360 games on the current gen console. It would seem that the team at Xbox are aiming to start the year with a bang as far as Backwards Compatibility goes. Today has seen Major Nelson confirm that no less than SEVEN new titles are now part of the already extensive library. The first Tweet confirmed the addition of … Read More »

The list of Xbox 360 games playable on your Xbox One is growing all the time, thanks to new games joining the Backwards Compatibility programme. With hundreds of games to choose from, let’s look at a few hidden gems on the list. First up is Space Giraffe – a typically psychedelic Jeff Minter shooter that tragically underperformed in sales-terms on Xbox 360. A real shame, because this is one of Minter’s best (don’t know who Jeff Minter is? You might know his work). This colourful Tempest-inspired blaster can be utterly overwhelming, until that moment where it clicks and it becomes utterly … Read More »

Welcome back to Xbox One UK’s regular reflection, where we take a look at the list of Xbox 360 titles that became backwards compatible in the last month and try to point out a couple of highlights. December didn’t offer much in the way of quantity, as the Backwards Compatibility team took some well earned time off over the Christmas period. Luckily, the quality of those games picked up the slack. First, the honourable mentions: Injustice: Gods Among Us The Batman vs Superman film might have been a little disappointing, but watching those two cornerstones of the DC Universe duke … Read More »

December was a pretty good month for Xbox One’s Backwards Compatibility. Even with a limited number of titles added, a lowly quantity of 14 games, there were still some stellar additions to the programme. Below is a comprehensive list of all games added to Backwards Compatibility LAST month: ◦ Haunted House – XBLA – Added December 1, 2016. ◦ Injustice: Gods Among Us – Added December 1, 2016. ◦ Shadowrun – Added December 8, 2016. ◦ Shotest Shogi – XBLA – Added December 8, 2016. ◦ Space Ark – XBLA – Added December 8, 2016. ◦ BioShock – Added December 13, 2016. ◦ BioShock 2 – Added December 13, 2016. ◦ BioShock Infinite – Added December 13, 2016. ◦ Bully: Scholarship Edition – … Read More »

We have to admit, we were pretty disappointed with FIFA Street. Not because it’s a bad game – it isn’t. It’s a very good game. But from the title we were expecting to be playing with a squashed Coke can for a ball and piles of jumpers for goalposts. That’s how we remember football in the street, anyway. EA Sports FIFA Street would be a strong favourite for joining the backwards compatibility list, we think. It’s part of the annual update crew, so it’s unlikely to steal focus (or sales) from FIFA 18, and EA are supporters of the initiative, with 17 games … Read More »

There are a few key big wigs at Xbox that are always worth paying attention to, even when what they say is extremely vague and shrouded in mystery. One of those people is the Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, even when Spencer gives out no real information his Tweets can still send his followers into melt down. Want a prime example of this? Check out the Tweet below: @BestXboxGamerEU January looks pretty good for BC. — Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) 20 December 2016 See all the really good juicy information in that Tweet? Yeah me neither. That doesn’t mean people haven’t latched … Read More »
