Microsoft officially closed its ongoing backward compatibility program for Xbox One devices. The tech giant now wants to push all of its Xbox games to Project Scarlett.

The company updated its Xbox One‘s catalog with some more titles. Gamers will be glad to know that they can now access more free DLC, some Xbox classics and Xbox 360 games.

A flashback from the past

The tech giant started its Xbox One Backward Compatibility program back in 2015. The idea got a lot of appreciation from the Xbox gaming community.

Many users like to keep their old collection of movies, songs and even games. This program provided gamers with the opportunity to play their favorite childhood games.

Many gamers played classic titles at comparatively higher resolutions on Xbox One. The company announced that:

You’ll be able to play all these Original Xbox and Xbox 360 games on Xbox One with the disc you already own, or you can purchase them digitally in the Microsoft Store.

The popularity of this program can be seen from the fact that more than 600 games are now available on the catalog. This helped Microsoft to give a tough competition to Sony in the console industry. Microsoft’s latest move may leave many fans of old Xbox games in despair.

Cheer up “Too Human” is free

The good news is that Microsoft released a free a digital copy of Too Human for Xbox One to end this program. The tech giant is actually looking forward to competing again Google in terms of game streaming.
