Xbox One Is Getting Backwards Compatibility

By Mark Delaney, 1 year ago
After some Halo 5: Guardians gameplay and the introduction of a brand new IP, Phil Spencer took the stage at Microsoft's E3 presser and took no time to announce a much sought after feature is coming to Xbox One: backwards compatibility with the 360.

The feature will release this holiday season with a digital library of over 100 games right away and more to come in the lifespan of the console thereafter. Xbox One preview members can get a look at a limited library of games starting today, too. The games will work with the features of the Xbox One, like taking videos and screenshots. You won't be charged again for games you already own either, so your digital library carries over in addition to the discs that will work with the One. No list of launch titles has yet been revealed.

This bit of news kickstarted the show and if it's any indication of what we're in for as avid gamers, this should be fun. Keep it here with TA as we dive head first into E3 2015.
