Microsoft Will Bring First Party Titles To Xbox One Game Preview

If you're looking forward to Microsoft's big 2016 lineup (and beyond), you may be surprised to find out that you might not need to wait for those games to release. Microsoft confirms to us that it will begin using the Game Preview program for its in-house games.

The early access-style program launched at E3 with Frontier Development's Elite Dangerous and Hinterland Studio's The Long Dark. This week, Unicube's Sheltered joined Game Preview, with Compulsion's We Happy Few on the way.

We spoke with Microsoft Studios Global Publishing general manager Shannon Loftis about the program, to find out how the company plans to evolve it. "First party will be using Game Preview for our games," Loftis tells us. "It's not 100 percent. It's very much developer choice, but it is definitely an option."

Let me preface by saying I had previously vowed I'd never read or write in forums again for reasons I won't go into. I'm a little desperate however, so I've suspended my integrity in lieu of getting some answers:

I think I'm previewing wrong. I go to the preview dashboard and all I'm able to do is surveys (complete), check stats, and invite friends. I don't see anything that even hints at backwards compatability. Anyone toss me a bone? Is it, in fact, possible to download 360 games that I bought digitally in my 360 days?
