Here’s the list of the Xbox 360 games you can play on your Xbox One right now

 In Canada Web Developer, News, Uncategorized

Microsoft caused quite some waves yesterday, when it made a surprising announcement regarding backward compatibility on the Xbox One, much to the delight of Xbox gamers and developers alike. Microsoft accomplished this by engineering an Xbox 360 emulator inside its latest console which will allow users to natively play physical and digital copies of the older games they own.

While Microsoft has promised that over 100 games will be available initially, with hundreds more added in the next few months, 22 Xbox 360 games are available for you to play right now, provided that you are an Xbox Preview member.

These games include:

  • A Kingdom for Keflings
  • A World of Keflings
  • Alien Hominid HD
  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Banjo-Tooie
  • BattleBlock Theater
  • Defense Grid
  • Geometry Wars Evolved
  • Hexic HD
  • Jetpac Refuelled
  • Kameo
  • Mass Effect
  • N+
  • Perfect Dark
  • Perfect Dark Zero
  • Small Arms
  • Super Meat Boy
  • Toy Soldiers
  • Toy Soldiers: Cold War
  • Viva Piñata
  • Viva Piñata: TIP
  • Zuma

As can be seen from the list, most of these games aren’t exactly block-buster titles, but it’s still a decent indication of what we can expect to see from Microsoft over the next few months. As the company demonstrated at E3, these games can be played without performance issues and they perfectly utilize Xbox One features such as screenshots, game streaming and Game DVR.

Moreover, any games you own will be free to download digitally and even using physical disks, provided that you insert the disk into your console while playing the game. Along with a “new Xbox One user experience” reportedly planned for this week and the first major Xbox Dashboard revamp with Cortana and more, Microsoft has certainly got its work cut out over the next few months.

As has been the case with Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview and the Xbox One Preview program, Microsoft has been very forthcoming in receiving input from consumers regarding its products, in order to further improve upon them. The company’s recent announcement about backwards compatibility has been one of the major highlights of its E3 event, and Microsoft is again eager to receive feedback from its users – this time, about which Xbox 360 games they would next like to play on their Xbox One.

It is notable that five out the top ten games are from the Call of Duty franchise, but the list itself is not surprising at all considering that nearly all of these titles are critically acclaimed with ratings revolving around 90/100 on Metacritic. Other games also include Mass Effect 3, BioShock Infinite, Alan Wake, GTA IV and Halo Wars.

If you want to vote for some of your favorite Xbox 360 games, you can do so by visiting the Xbox Feedback forum, but remember, as Microsoft has already pointed out, not every game you vote for may make it to the Xbox One compatibility list lineup.
