10 Video Games We Want Backward Compatible on Xbox One


Xbox boss Phil Spencer dropped a bombshell on Xbox fans when he announced that the team at Microsoft is bringing backward compatibility to Xbox One, allowing gamers to play Xbox 360 games on their current-gen system.

In the meantime, Xbox gamers can vote on the Xbox 360 games they want to play on Xbox One. While not every title is guaranteed to be available, there’s a good chance the highest voted games will become backward compatible.

Red Dead Redemption is the main one for me!

Good luck getting those publishing licenses Microsoft lol

The chance to have old non revenue generating games suddenly start making money again through digital and or physical purchases and the developer doesn't have to lift a finger? Well that's just crazy. Why would any sane developer or publisher do that?

I have nothing against BC, and as polls have shown, most gamers want this option. Similar polls also show that most will never use it, or rarely. Now, I give MS props b/c it's a brilliant move. Sony can't counter it 1:1, and it plays well as an incentuve, despite its actually usage.

RDR will most likely get a remaster, as will a few on this list. It will also get a sequel. Now, I've thought about this, as I own a PS3, 360, and PS4. If Sony came out with BC for PS4, I guess I'd be happy, but why? I would never use it. I'm planning on selling my old machines, as mist who save their games wont. They do so much more than play games now.

Also, as a fan of Sony (and MS), I want their company to do well. I want them to wake up and do something smart with their TV'S and Mobile devices. They have Now and Vue, and I want their focus on these apps, not something that has minimal benefits.

That said, of it didn't cost much and isnt that hard for MS, I would have recommended they do just what they did b/c, as I wrote, it's a great business move that will help them regardless.

But honestly, how many last gen games will anyone be playing this yr?

Halo MCC is one of the most played games on Xbox One. And its made entirely of last gen games. Also Tomb Raider remaster did pretty good too.

poppinslops1119d ago

I'd happily replay Alan Wake, the Witcher 2, Red Dead Redemption and Bioshock Infinite... then there's the last-gen games I never played, like Arkham Origins, Southpark tSoT, the Dead Space series, Lost Odyssey and Assassin's Creed: Rogue.

I'm delighted by this feature... playing these games with an Xone controller is going to be great.

COD4 over MW2? No way. That is just plain nostalgia clouding your vision.

theRell1119d ago

Although they will never come, I'd like to see some of the Marvel vs. Capcom fighters return. Sadly... Disney. :(

Some of the games I'm really hoping to be included with backwards compatibility:

- Battlefield: Bad Company
- Battlefield: Bad Company 2
- Battlefield 1943
- Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
- Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2
- Ghost Recon Future Soldier
- The Darkness
- The Darkness 2
- F.E.A.R.
- F.E.A.R. 2

FEAR had the best, smoothest multiplayer that no one played. That spike gun is one of my favorites from any game.

Those battlefield games have the server shut down

BattleAxe1118d ago

They're still going on PS3, and Bad Company 2 on PC is still going strong, so I doubt that's true. Also Battlefield 1943 is still up on PS3.

So many good games that I want, those xbox 360 deals with gold are becoming interesting again.
