Saints Row IV for Xbox 360 was just added to the backwards compatibility list for the Xbox One, so people who own this game can now enjoy it on the latest generation of Microsoft’s flagship console. Xbox’s Larry Hryb, aka Major Nelson, shared the news with his followers on Twitter and with Saints Row IV being such a well-known and beloved title, it was only a matter of time until it happened.
