Backwards Compatible

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 absorbing and surprisingly deep. Play the tutorial, and pay attention. Being a  360 Arcade game, there’s a free demo available, but the full game is absolutely worth the measly £3.39 asking price.

Space Giraffe

If you prefer your games a little less eyeball-searing, may we humbly recommend Carcassonne. This is a fully-featured version of the classic strategic board game, and it’s all too easy to get lost in it for hours. Managing resources and planning complex strategies is fun whether you’re playin against the surprisingly good AI, or friends either over Xbox Live or in the couch next to you.

This game might be nine years old, but if you’re a board-to-video game fan, this is a must have. Again, pick up the free demo or shell out for the full thing for just £6.75.

Carcassonne

We’ve travelled from outer space to the surface of the earth – let’s continue our journey with unbelievably good dungeon crawler Torchlight. Often described as ‘Diablo Lite’ – though it probably has more in common with PC dungeon-crawler Fate – Torchlight does more than enough to stand on its own.

Beautifully realised dungeons, plenty of treasure, characters and quests, and a dog companion who’ll sell your unwanted items while you continue your adventure uninterrupted, Torchlight is an absolute must-have for any adventurer. Pick up the free demo and we’re sure you’ll be happy to splash out £9.99.

Torchlight

There you go – three of our favourite ‘hidden gems’ on the list. We think there’s something for everyone – but do let us know what your favourites are!

How to install and play Xbox 360 backward compatible games on your Xbox One

  • Disc: For disc-based games that are a part of the Back Compat game catalog, simply insert the disc and the console will begin downloading the game to your hard drive. After the game has finished downloading, you will still need to keep the game disc in the drive to play.
  • Digital: The digital titles that you own and are part of the Back Compat game catalog will automatically show up in the “Ready to Install” section on your Xbox One, and once they are installed they will show up in the Games section of your Xbox One.

TIP: To open the Xbox 360 dashboard from within the Xbox One environment, hold the view and menu buttons.

How to purchase Xbox 360 games if you don’t own an Xbox 360 – using xbox.com

If you want to purchase an Xbox 360 title and don’t own or have access to an Xbox 360, you can still purchase the game digitally online from the Xbox marketplace. Simply log into your account at http://www.xbox.com and navigate to the catalog of Xbox 360 titles. Once you select a title, you will see the option to download it to your Xbox 360. Clicking on the download button actually brings up the purchasing screen. Once you purchase the game and the transaction is complete, the game will be registered to your account.

How to purchase Xbox 360 games if you don’t own an Xbox 360 – using your Xbox One

Xbox 360 games that are part of the backwards compatibility programme can now be purchased directly from the Store on your Xbox One – you won’t be able to use Store Credit to purchase these games though – you’ll need to have a payment option associated with your account.

A few things to note:

  • You have to have a valid payment option on file to purchase any title., but you’ll still need to have a valid payment option on file.
  • If a game is free, you’re still required to “purchase” it – you just won’t be charged anything for it.
  • The Xbox 360 Marketplace and the Xbox One Store websites use different architecture, so if you have credit but no payment option associated with your account, you won’t be able to use the credit to purchase Xbox 360 titles. You will have to add a payment option or purchase the title using an Xbox 360 console.
  • Not all Xbox 360 games are backward compatible with Xbox One, but more are being added all the time.

Games with Gold

TIP: Every month Xbox Live Gold members get two free Xbox One and two free Xbox 360 games with the Games With Gold program. You can redeem these free games at http://www.xbox.com whether you own the console or not – as long as you have an account. If you don’t own an Xbox One and decide to purchase one in the future, you’ll already have a collection of games available to you. And if you don’t own an Xbox 360 every Games with Gold 360 game since November 2015 is included in the backward compatible programme, so you’ll be able to play them on your Xbox One.

Make sure you like our Facebook page, join our Facebook group, subscribe to our YouTube channel and follow on Twitter and Twitch for all the latest Xbox One news, reviews and competitions.
