Backward compatibility is always a great feature to have, and Microsoft has been working hard to bring it to Xbox One. And now this feature is finally here which means that Xbox One gamers will be able to enjoy in Xbox 360 titles on their Xbox One consoles.

Xbox One backward compatibility is free for all Xbox One owners, so you can play your favorite Xbox 360 games without any fees. All the compatible games will appear on your Back Compat game catalog in the Ready to Install section on Xbox One. After you’ve downloaded the digital version, you can run it on Xbox One without any issues.

We have to mention that your saved games, achievements and friend lists are still available when using Xbox One backward compatibility, so you’ll get exactly the same experience as if you’re playing on Xbox 360. While using the backward compatibility, you can still use Xbox One features such as Game DVR, Screenshots or Windows 10 streaming, and you can also play Xbox 360 titles with your friends that have Xbox 360.

We also have to mention that Xbox One backward compatibility will work with disc-based games as well, and in order to play a Xbox 360 game that you have on a disc, you just need to insert the disc and the console will start downloading the game to your hard drive. After the game has been downloaded, you’ll still need the game disc in order to play it.

As for compatible titles, there are currently about 100 Xbox 360 games available, and Microsoft is working hard to bring more Xbox 360 games to Xbox One.

In order for Xbox 360 games to run on Xbox One, Microsoft had to develop an emulator for Xbox 360 that runs on Xbox One, and according to Microsoft they are planning to bring even more Xbox 360 games to Xbox One in the future.
