Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Has Bumpy Launch
Some games that are backwards compatible at all aren’t showing up.
The Xbox One’s backwards compatibility feature has officially launched for all users and while Microsoft is noticeably excited about that launch, it hasn’t gone without some problems. While launch problems for something like this should be expected, because it’s entirely new and on a large scale, some users are reporting the service isn’t working at all. According to ThisGenGaming the biggest issue coming from users is they have digital Xbox 360 games that aren’t showing up in the ready to install section of the Xbox One while others are.
Other users are saying none of their digital Xbox 360 games are showing up at all. Digital games are not the only titles that are seeing some problems. There are also reports that disc based games are being inserted but not showing up and giving an error message instead. This is despite the fact that UK Xbox went so far as to taunt Sony by showing a video of just how “easy” it was to use backwards compatibility simply by inserting a disc.
This report comes on the heels of a number of reports of users having issues getting the new dashboard to work the way it’s supposed to work. Obviously, considering this new UI is brand new, there are going to be some issues at launch. If Microsoft really wants to score the points it can by offering the backwards compatibility service, it’s going to want to fix the issues rather quickly. Hopefully, for Xbox One users, the practice the company has had all summer will help.
