Microsoft Announces Backward Compatibility for Xbox One, Coming Holiday 2015

By   /   Jun 15, 2015

Microsoft broke the stage of E3 2015 after announcing that Xbox One will support backward compatibility with a native support for all Xbox 360 games.

Xbox One features such as Snipping, Screenshots, in-game DVR will continue to work with Xbox 360. Microsoft also provided a brief glimpse of the original Mass Effect running on Xbox One.

Phil Spencer also confirmed that you will not have re-buy the Xbox 360 games you already own in order to play them on Xbox One.

Backward Compatibility on Xbox One is now available for all Xbox Preview Members and will be available to everyone in Fall 2015.

It seems like Microsoft will provide support for the Xbox 360 games in waves with the first wave containing Mass Effect, Gears of War, Halo: Reach, and more.

There are two ways to play your good old Xbox 360 games on Xbox One: if you own a digital copy of an Xbox 360 title, you will be able to simply re-download it on Xbox One. As for physical copies, you will be able to copy it to Xbox One hard drive, but the console will still check for the physical disc.
