Nearly Half Of Xbox One Owners Use Backwards Compatibility Feature
The service is, justifiably so, a hit.
The backwards compatibility offering from Microsoft hit a landmark yesterday, with over 300 Xbox 360 games now playable on Xbox One. And to commemorate the occasion, Xbox head Phil Spencer posted a special tweet about it on his account.
The tweet was interesting, however, because it revealed another important statistic- almost half of all Xbox One owners use their consoles to play Xbox 360 games, too. This means that Microsoft’s backwards compatibility feature is a major hit this generation- which makes sense, given Microsoft’s consistent support of the service, and their efforts made at securing the best games from the Xbox 360’s catalog for it.
I sincerely hope that Microsoft don’t stop with this, going forward- I also sincerely hope that they can get Xbox games running on the Xbox One and the upcoming Scorpio, too. One Xbox system to play every Xbox game ever made sounds like a hell of an appealing proposition to me.
