Microsoft has announced that all future Games With Gold titles will be backwards compatible on Xbox One.
Nice to hear. MS is really do BC properly... Love the inclusion of previous X360 games with the new versions, love that 100 games are announced for launch, and love that there seems to be solid 3rd party publisher support. And now love the mandating that all games with gold will be BC!
Wait....we get all the games from games with gold that WERE on the 360 for XB1 now? For free ? like retroactively ? Awesome.
Not retro. All going forward games with gold on 360 must be BC.
4 games I can play on xbox one each month? Yes please.
Xbox is making all the right moves. the disaster of a launch for the xbox one was worth it to get phil spencer in charge of the brand he has been amazing so far
I think that they were so shortsighted that they always looked at giving to the gamers as a loss, but in reality the good will it brings will always lead to better product reception.
I knew they will have all X360 gold titles BC as that will give more value to their fans. Really well executed. If anyone missed it, Just cause 3 also come with a free digital BC version of Just Cause 2. These are great incentives to add value to the console. Great move by MS.
Dualshockers is reporting all previous games with gold titles will work as well. I wonder if there's any truth to that.
I wish i could download gow3 right now on my Xbox one , so I can play it later
I had a feeling this would be the case. I got toy soldiers 2 as a free game with gold and its been available to install for a few days now.I had 143 digital games on XBL. Not including free games. I never did finish super meatboy either.....Did ten levels the scream out of frustration. Its harder than mega man 9 and 10 combined and they damn near drove me up the wall. No way I was gonna put myself through that again...but SMB is addictive...maybe a quick ten mins every now and again wont make me feel like headbutting somebody when im done. :). But I loved the game. the cutscenes were funny too! EDIT: almost forgot. I noticed gears of war 1, in my 'ready to install' section. I bought that on disc ages ago. I think I may have gotten it again as a GWG. I know I didnt buy it digitally. so yeah..GWG games seem to be included.
Awesome... 4 free games a month.
Wow, 100 free games just like that...guess i'll upgrade to gold now, and buy an x1 sooner than later...looks like i should invest in a bigger hardrive as well...if all these features and announcements don't give microsoft the upperhand now then i don't know what will.
