One of the biggest announcements from E3 2015 was backwards compatibility for the Xbox One, and Xbox owners have been waiting for more Xbox 360 to be confirmed for the program ever since.
In a reply to a fan’s tweet yesterday, Phil Spencer teased that more Xbox 360 games will be announced later this week. One of the games included could very possibly be Red Dead Redemption, one of the most requested titles and the subject of the original tweet, although this has not been confirmed.
While not a lot of games have been confirmed for the program so far, Microsoft has been looking for more fan-favorite titles to include through a poll on their website. Currently, the leading games are Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Red Dead Redemption, and Skyrim, but hundreds of others have been nominated.
The backwards compatibility program will allow users to re-download and play their old Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One, free of charge. Players can insert their old game discs to the Xbox One, and though the console can’t read them, it’ll trigger a free download of the game. This program is slated to release this fall, but a beta version is already available for members of the Xbox One Preview Program.
What do you think? Which games do you want to be included in the program? Let us know in the comments below!
