The Xbox One backward compatibility program allows gamers to play their favorite Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One for free. The list of compatible games already includes important titles such as Call of Duty, Borderlands, Witcher 2, Red Dead and more, with more games to come soon.

According to user reports, the frame rate may drop in Xbox One backward compatible games. The same issue has been reported soon after gamers installed the Anniversary Update on their devices.

Frame rate drops in Xbox One backward compatible games

So my xbox one has always had trouble with backwards compatibility. Not that it doesn’t work. It works, but every game seemed to drop frames really bad. To the point it was unplayable. I had gotten rid of my xbox 360 and was excited to do gears of war 2 and 3 coop story with a friend. When we attempted this the frames were so bad we could not even aim properly. […]

Recently, I saw that Call of duty 2 was made backwards compatible on my xbox one […]. Seeing this made me excited as I have not played that game yet and wanted to try it out. So I put in Call of duty 2 and discovered the same problem I had with gears. Laggy, dropped frames everywhere.

Fortunately, the same user who reported this issue also offered a fix. Apparently, deleting the local Xbox 360 storage solves the problem. Go to Settings > System > Storage > Clear local Xbox 360 storage.

Other users who were experiencing the same issue quickly confirmed this workaround helped them solve the problem. In other words, in case you encounter frame drop issues while playing Xbox One backward compatible games, simply delete the local Xbox 360 and that should fix everything.

Don’t forget to back up the content you saved before deleting the Xbox 360 storage.
