This list contains every Xbox 360 game that is backwards compatible on the Xbox One.What does backwards compatibility mean?
If an Xbox 360 game is backwards compatible on the Xbox One, that means that owners of that 360 game can play it on the Xbox One. This is true whether the game is purchased digitally or if the game is on a physical disc.
Backwards compatibility works via an on-board Xbox 360 emulator. When players load an Xbox 360 game on Xbox One, they are actually loading up an emulated Xbox 360. They are loading up a digital version of the game even if they own it on disc. Achievement toast notifications and the Guide menu appear in the old 360 style while playing an Xbox 360 game on Xbox One.
Microsoft started adding backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games back in 2015, and ended the program in 2019 in order to focus on ensuring all games currently playable on the Xbox One will be available on the Xbox Series X.
Not every Xbox 360 game is available on Xbox One. This is due to licensing agreements rather than an engineering issue. We also have a list of Xbox 360 games that are not backwards compatible
