Xbox One Backwards Compatibility List Coming on November 9th
A list of the first 100 supported titles will be revealed in six days.
Whether or not you believe Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg in that there are tens of millions of Xbox 360 users who will migrate over to Xbox One due to backwards compatibility, there’s no denying the push being made for the same. The company has promised 100 games that will be backwards compatible and according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer, that full list will be out next week.
Responding to a fan on Twitter, Spencer said, “We will announce the back compat list of the first 100 on 11/9.” Mark your calendars then, because the New Xbox One Experience is out on November 12th.
It should be noted that the list will encompass both first party and third party titles. There have already been a number of confirmations thus far including Gears of War 1/2/3/Judgment, Burnout Paradise, Mass Effect, Borderlands, etc. Which Xbox 360 title are you hoping is backwards compatible? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for November 9th.
