It looks like Microsoft is in a mood to revamp all of its products. From “Windows 10,” the company is moving to the laptop domain with Surface Book, an improved Surface Pro.
But the company is in no mood to stop here. It is giving equal attention to gaming as well. Here’s how.
The company on November 9 announced on Xbox Wire, its dedicated news site for Xbox, that is unveiling “the first 104 Xbox One Backward Compatibility games.” Following are a few games included in the list:
Halo (original game)
Call of Duty
Gears of War, and
South Park: The Stick Of Truth
The complete list of games is available on Xbox Wire. From November 12, your current generation console will start recognizing discs of all approved titles. In your download queue, you will also be given access to digital downloads. Along with the announcement, Mike Ybarra, Director Of Program Management for Xbox, also added,
“Our launch of 104 titles on Nov. 12 is just the beginning. You can expect new Xbox One Backward Compatible games to be announced on a regular basis, starting in December. More titles are on the way, including fan favorites like Halo Reach, Halo Wars, Call of Duty®: Black Ops 1, Bioshock, Bioshock 2,Bioshock Infinite, and Skate 3. Stay tuned because this is just the beginning of a long list of Xbox 360 games that will run on Xbox One.”
While Xbox wants us to believe that the reason behind bringing select Xbox 360 games to Xbox One is nothing else than for user’s enjoyment, experts have something else to say. They believe that Sony PS4‘s sales figure is double than that of Microsoft’s Xbox One, and this is just another strategy implemented by the company to boost sales of its gaming console. Whatever the truth may be, Xbox users are surely in for a treat.
