What's This?

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility just got three “new” game titles this week. The blast from the past has gotten the community going as Xbox 360 games become playable titles for the Xbox One.


The new game releases come as fans anticipate if any more of the top 5 most requested game will be made available for the console. And Microsoft could still be planning more releases in the future.

More Xbox 360 Titles For The Xbox One

According to Express, Boom Boom Rockets, Syberia, and Triggerheart Exelica are now playable on Microsoft’s latest-gen console. The latest of the three, Exelica, is an arcade title featuring vertical-scrolling shooter ported to the Xbox 360.

This brings the number titles available for the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility to a total of 16. This number is expected to grow as more Xbox 360 titles are made playable on Xbox One.

And the best part about the Backwards Compatibility is that you don’t have to rebuy the games. Meaning if you had previously owned the game, it should appear in your library.

Users can also utilize their Xbox 360 disk to gain access to the game. So before you unload all your games at Gamestop, keep in mind that Microsoft has four more games it plans to add in the future.

For those who didn’t own the game, they can still purchase them at the Xbox One store. If you’re willing to try this new feature, consider purchasing Red Dead Redemption, which is the highest-rated title released so far.

With the latest-gen console’s higher specs, the Xbox 360 titles also got a performance boost. Some issues such as screen tear were completely removed and the frame rate was improved a great deal.

This new strategy has greatly increased the console’s title sales as players who have missed the 360 glory days relive the nostalgia. Xbox One Backwards Compatibility is also one way for Microsoft to make money without investing in the development of a new title.
