Microsoft has now confirmed that 104 Xbox 360 games will be available for Xbox One owners to play via the upcoming backwards compatibility update, and more games will be added on a regular basis. However, gamers who have been voting on the official Xbox UserVoice forums have been requesting many more Xbox 360 games that are not currently announced for the Xbox One backwards compatible list

Here's the top 20 list of most requested Xbox 360 games that have not been confirmed by Microsoft to be added to the Xbox One playable list:

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops II: 109,686 Votes
  • Red Dead Redemption: 100,358 Votes
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - 97,844 Votes
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - 87,272 Votes
  • Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - 63,453 Votes
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - 57,582 Votes
  • Call of Duty: World at War - 54,523 Votes
  • Mass Effect 3 - 53,801 Votes
  • Fallout: New Vegas - 51,534 Votes
  • Left 4 Dead 2 - 49,367 Votes
  • Grand Theft Auto IV - 47,431 Votes
  • Batman: Arkham City - 45,669 Votes
  • Mass Effect 2 - 45,464 Votes

  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - 29,713 Votes
  • Fable III - 29,709 Votes
  • Assassin's Creed III - 29,632 Votes

Keep in mind that the current list of Xbox 360 games that will be backwards compatible with the Xbox One is just the first step, and that the company will likely add many of the above games to that list in the coming months. Also keep in mind that there may be licensing issues for some of these games from their publishers that could keep them from joining the Xbox One list

  • Isnt San Andreas an original Xbox game? Cant remember it on 360.
  • They released a remastered version last year as part of the 10th anniversary celebration alongside the mobile versions
  • Ah ok!
  • Not much of a remaster though. Just 720p, same textures. But I'm happy with it cause I learned to love this game with the graphics it had.
  • Just remember that while it definitely helps, cheering for a certain game to Microsoft can only go so far. We also would have to bring our voices to the publisher themselves as they are the ones with the final say generally.
  • They failed
  • It's impossible to fail. Releasing any backwards compatible game is already a win as it wasn't a promised feature. It's a gift.
  • If providing an unpromised feature is a gift, what do you call it when they take away promised features?
  • @coip: Without context, I'm not sure how to respond to this. It may simply be a loaded question. But yeah, here's a definition for gift: "a thing given willingly to someone without payment; a present." So yeah, I think this fits. Not sure why you're going off-topic though. My guess is you feel you have some axe to grind about something? OneDrive probably? If that's the case. This isn't the place for it. Go complain on the article where that was discussed.
  • No his complaining is about gestures with Kinect being removed. Oh and anti consumerism.
  • I don't really see how my question was off-topic. You stated what a gift was. I asked what the opposite of that was. Seems on topic to me. The larger question, though, is if it's okay to sell someone an orange and then take it away and give them a banana instead and say it's okay because you gifted them a banana. Well, bananas are nice and all, but I bought an orange because I wanted an orange.
  • It's perfectly ok if you sign an agreement beforehand that states the person who sold you the orange has the right to change anything at any time. By purchasing an Xbox you agreed to the EULA, so go sit in your corner and cry about what you can't use on Xbox anymore.
  • As I told you before Axe Body Spray, take your sociopathic ramblings elsewhere. I have no respect for uneducated ignoramuses who mock the plights of disabled folk, defend anti-consumeristic crap pulled by multi-billion-dollar corporations, and have no understanding of basic logic. Legality ≠ morality.
  • And yet again, you build your own delusion about what I had said, but that's ok, 3 more days till your face melts over the new update and I'll enjoy that.
  • I know exactly what you said and I know that you fit all the criteria of a sociopath. I also know that you have no understanding of basic socioeconomic exchange theory, nor do you understand basic logic. In short, I find you to be an obtuse, nescient, boring, and condescending ignoramus, whose ramblings are like a boilerplate case study of the Dunning-Kruger effect. The only impressive thing about you is how painfully oblivious you are to all of that.
  • The sad part about your comment is it is literally impossible for you to know that about me. So you keep thinking that if it makes your life better. I'll keep using my xbox and having a good time.
  • That you think that is all the more evidence of how clueless you are. I'm qualified to categorize sociopathy. You fit the bill. Being in denial about it only undergirds it. Now, I know this is hard for you to understand, as a sociopath, but we're trying to live in a society here: take your trolling elsewhere. I have no interest in anything you say. I do not respect you. I've advised you before to stop imposing your bastardizations into my conversations, yet, like the sociopathic troll that you are, you continue rudely doing so. Go away. You're a terrible human being and you're not welcome here.
  • Yup, you're qualified for it I'm sure. Considering all you do is just throw out a label, I'm guessing you're just like most people on the internet, faking it and hoping someone will believe it.
  • I'll tell you what. I'll scan a copy of my PhD and send it to you. Just provide your home mailing address and I'll send it out presently along with a full breakdown of how you're a sociopath that, perhaps you can have your mom explicate for you, since you're unlikely to be able to comprehend it on your own.
  • Sure like I'm going to give you my home address, or believe a scanned copy of a degree from someone like you who provides insults instead of facts. 
  • It's ludicrously ironic that you're lecturing me about providing "insults instead of facts", but I have no desire to explicate that for you again, as I have done numerous times already. I have told you dozens of times on dozens of articles over several months to stop harrassing me, yet you continue to do so like the sociopath that you are. I have no respect for you. You're a terrible person. And I have no interest in anything you have to say. Take a clue and take a hike.
  • I challenge you to provide a screenshot of me mocking anyone that is disabled (other than you with your delusions)
  • "I have told you dozens of times on dozens of articles over several months to stop harrassing me, yet you continue to do so like the sociopath that you are. I have no respect for you. You're a terrible person. And I have no interest in anything you have to say. Take a clue and take a hike."
  • just a shame they didn't teach you any kind of common respect or decency in that PhD class...  
  • You do not have the full picture. He has been harassing me for months, insulting my disabled family and friends, and engaging in all sorts of sociopathic behavior. He lost the right to "respect or decency" months ago with his perpetual trolling, despite being told dozens of times to stop his harrassment.
  • You sound like a Democrat. And this was all because I put "fail" I'm face palming right now :/
  • Not even quite sure how that qualifies as an argument/insult/what ever you meant it to be. 
  • Gotta love it when two fanboys battle it out with each other. One angered by the recent, and I might add not too unpredictable, decision of the corporate entity which he once supported and the other still an ardent supporter as ever. "face melt"! "sociopath"! How much better can this get? LOL. If only I was quicker to see this.
  • But, you are a grumpy douchebag. So we have no respect for you.
  • Please, just go buy a PS4 if you want to continue to constantly bitch about trivial things such as gestures with Kinect being removed. 
  • How would purchasing a PS4 enable me to use Kinect gestures? Kinect gestures are not a "trivial" thing for my family and friends, some of who physically rely on gestures to navigate their consoles and who only purchased the console in the first place because Microsoft promised that "Kinect is Xbox One". So maybe know reality before yapping like a judgmental, condescening nitwit.
  • Coip u have complained on every Xbox post on this site, have you once complained on a Microsoft forum, if so please provide proof. Or are you just attention seeking by flaming every article about Xbox, do u work for Sony, Nintendo or any of there affiliates and are here to sow seeds of doubt. Only asking cos all of your arguments come without a seed of proof. Purely using your argument that a "key feature" is being removed, what about getting a car, you can't drive it over 70 without getting in trouble in the UK, so do u take the car back and say can I have one that doesn't go above 70 please. People would laugh at you which I'm sure some are doing now at my comparison. But at the end of the day u constantly complaining about this is becoming laughable and the soundings of a person desperate for attention. If by any chance you find this insulting then I apologise but will you apologise for going on about the same problem every time a Xbox article is added. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • "have you once complained on a Microsoft forum, if so please provide proof" Countless times. I'm active on Xbox Uservoice and on Twitter effecting change and organizing pro-consumer social movements fighting for the rights of Xbox owners and Windows Phone owners. There is evidence in the Windows Central forums of links to UserVoice threads that have since been deleted by Microsoft's Xbox Support team, who have been actively trying to quell criticisms of the NXOE. Once November 12 hits, a new UserVoice will be posted that cannot, by their own rules, be deleted. I trust that you will find it and vote for it. "Only asking cos all of your arguments come without a seed of proof." Not really sure what you're talking about. It's been publicly stated by Microsoft executives and reported by Windows Central that they're removing Kinect gestures. What other proof do you need? "Purely using your argument that a "key feature" is being removed, what about getting a car, you can't drive it over 70 without getting in trouble in the UK, so do u take the car back and say can I have one that doesn't go above 70 please." This is a false analogy. This key feature--Kinect gestures--was already a feature on Day One and has been for the past two yars. My friends, family, and I bought Xbox Ones BECAUSE this feature existed. In your scenario, you would be buying a car that didn't have a feature and then complaining that it didn't have the feature. In reality, the correct analogy is that they sold you a car with a key feature, promised you that this key feature is the core of the car, took your money, and then came back two years later and ripped it out. That's rubbish. "But at the end of the day u constantly complaining about this is becoming laughable and the soundings of a person desperate for attention. If by any chance you find this insulting then I apologise" I am insulted by it, yes. Some of my friends and family literally cannot physically use their Xbox Ones without gesture navigation. This is a serious issue, and it is not right for Microsoft (or any company) to take away features that people made purchasing decisions based on. Your argument that I'm doing it for "attention", besides being insulting, doesn't make logical sense. I'm doing it because the move is screwing over my friends and family, and I'm not okay with that--and, quite frankly, cannot comprehend why anyone else would be either, regardless of whether they personally use Kinect gestures or not. The reason I post it on many Xbox articles is beause 1. I'm passionate about it, and 2. that's how social movement mobilization works: you have to advertise and recruit like-minded potential participants to join the cause, if you are to have any chance of success.
  • @coip: This will be my last response unless you actually post a question that's on topic with Xbox backwards compatibility (honestly, at this point I'd be happy with it even just being about xbox). Saying BC is a gift is on topic. Asking what the opposite of a gift is is *not* on topic. The topic is backwards compatibility, not gifts. Now, if you have something to discuss about Xbox, just say it. If you keep trying to frame it with an analogy without my knowing the context, I won't respond.
  • I completely agree with you on this one, bc is a gift and a gift that will keep on giving. Microsoft didn't have to do this, they chose to. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • My question was on topic with Xbox backwards compatibility, but as you don't like analogies, I'll strip them away and explicate the point for you: the investment in backwards compatibility consumed a great deal of resources at Microsoft, resources diverted away from maintaining prior features that were already a part of the original Xbox--features that people made purchasing decisions on. Your classification of backwards compatibility as being a 'gift' is interesting, but it also begs the question of whether something is truly a gift when it comes at the expensve of something you already had.
  • Where is your proof that the inclusion of Backward Compatibility compromised the inclusion of Kinect gestures? You may be right in being mad that a feature will be leaving (if only temporarily), but you make no connection, other than in your own head, that the resources spent on one had any impact on devoting resources to the other. Personally, what I have seen thus far has indicated that Kinect gestures in the dashboard had so little regular use, its priority was drastically reduced, but it has not been ruled out for inclusion in the future. Similar to Backward Compatibility, it will rely on having your voice heard by the right people to make it known that you value the feature.
  • Xbox Chief Marketing Officer Mike Nichols said so in an interview with Polygon's Brian Crecente a few weeks ago. It's also the basic principle of Human Resource Management theory. However, I see it as a rubbish excuse. Microsoft is a multi-billion-dollar company. They already developed the technology to do this (sunk costs), already know how to program it in (sunk costs), and promised consumers that "Kinect is Xbox One". They have no legitimate excuse to throw Kinect users under the bus, regardless of how few of them are out there. When you sell a product based on certain promises, you have an obligation to ensure those promises are upheld. I don't get why anyone would extol a company for reneging. "Kinect gestures in the dashboard had so little regular use, its priority was drastically reduced, but it has not been ruled out for inclusion in the future. Similar to Backward Compatibility, it will rely on having your voice heard". Minorities have rights too--especially when they made purchasing decisions based on promises Microsoft made in the past. They shouldn't be forced to upgrade, nor should they be forced to mobilize just to regain what they paid for in the first place. That's the problem.
  • Also this is now becoming a mute point since its been confirmed it won't be in on Thursday so no matter how much grand standing u do that aint gonna change. At least they said it "might" come back in. There is far worse things in this world than a console losing gesture support, something very, very few people used. END OF. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • "There is far worse things in this world than a console losing gesture support, something very, very few people used." These are fallacies. The first, in essence, is an argument that murdering someone is fine because genocide is worse. The second implies that minorities don't deserve rights. Both are wrong.
  • Oh the minorities argument again, which as a disabled person I find deeply disgusted that you keep bringing that up. Look if you are not happy with a product you paid for then take it up with the company. But bear in mind the company has answered that query then that would be pointless. Now please do not insult any more of the population who are classed as minorities by putting them in the same sentence as u. This is just a gaming console with media function, NOT A DISABILITY DEVICE. People who have to use comments like yours to win arguments in my opinion have lost. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • "Oh the minorities argument again, which as a disabled person I find deeply disgusted that you keep bringing that up" That is demented that, as a disabled person you would not support the plights of other disabled folk, siding instead with a multi-billion-dollar corporation who screwed over disabled folk who relied on Kinect gestures to navigate their consoles. "his is just a gaming console with media function, NOT A DISABILITY DEVICE." That is irrelevant. It was designed to have, sold with, and marketed as a device that could be operated a particular way, and some disabled people found these features facilitating. It's not okay for a company to sell something to someone with certain features, take their money, and then come back and rip-out those features. That you are even defending such a move is flabbergasting. "People who have to use comments like yours to win arguments in my opinion have lost." That's not only insensitive, it's also illogical, as the argument holds up regardless of who the user is. Disabled or not, it's not okay for any company to sell any product or service and then retroactively disable those products or features.
  • I like this guy. I bought the Xbox day one on the promise of a console with gaming, media, Kinect features. The execution of some promises were not delivered until well after release. Gestures was there from the start. They could have continued to improve the gesture feature, but are opting to disable it. Backwards compatibility is a gift / marketing ploy but not a core feature. I don't want to play the 360, i want next Gen games and gaming, next Gen gestures and media presentation.
  • Let's look at it this way and Microsoft figures back this up, a lot of people want backward compatibility and a "very, very low" number use gestures. So which do u go with if u r a big company like Microsoft. Well u try to please the many, yes a few get upset but a lot of people get happy. It makes complete business sense. Or since u like analogy, say a sheep goes walkabout at night does the farmer risk losing the masses of sheep he has to look for one or does he let it go and take care of the masses. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android Coip go read the Xbox terms and conditions then explain what part I don't understand. I believe sir then that is u who is confused, u forget Microsoft can change whatever part of the operating system of the console whenever they want has we are all using under licence and they are the licence owner.
  • "So which do u go with if u r a big company like Microsoft." You do both because 1. you already accomplished one of them and sold it as a key feature, and 2. you are a multi-billion-dollar corporation with nearly $100 billion in cash on hand who can afford to divert the few extra resourced needed to do both. Not screwing over customers--that is what makes business sense. (I like analogies when they're applicable, but that one is not: the sheep didn't pay the farmer to take care of him after the farmer promised he would, and the farmer isn't a multi-billion-dollar company who could easily hire a few helping hands to go search for the sheep).
  • did they really cite gestures on the dashboard as being a "key" feature?
  • "did they really cite gestures on the dashboard as being a 'key' feature?"
    Yes, the entire system was designed around it and Microsoft stated numerous times that "Kinect is Xbox One". Gesture navigation was featured in all television advertisements leading up to the launch of the console.
  • "Microsoft can change whatever part of the operating system of the console whenever they want" Legality ≠ morality.
  • No. It doesn't "beg" the question. If you are going to act like you are smart and can string together a sentence you MIGHT want to use the term correctly. Hint: It "RAISES" the question. "Begging" the question is a type of logical fallacy. Look it up. You used the phrase incorrectly. And it irks me
  • No, I didn't, actually. Begging the question as a logical fallacy is one meaning of the phrase, but not the only one, and it's in reference to a different situation. My usage was correct, according to the grammatical rules of the English language and the definitions of thoe words involved: to beg is "to ask humbly or earnestly". To "beg the question", then, is one way to earnestly ask a question. In your reference to 'begging the question', you are are referring to the name of a form of circular reasoning that is applied to a statement, not to the actual use of the phrase 'beg the question' itself.
  • That's not quite correct as you still have your orange - so now you have an orange and a banana! Unfortunately, the orange doesn't taste very good anymore... in fact, it's almost like a lemon! ;)
  • I guess they should have released this list way before that (thinking as a consumer and a fan). I knew what was coming, in the PR area we are instructed to hold the information as much as you can when it have the potential to disappoint your audience. In this case, they did it right (in the PR point of view), in 3 days they'll make those poor titles avaliable and will let a lot of people busy playing those games. And then, the complaining will stop for a little bit. But, as I said, they created a huge buzz and they delivered a very poor list, even without the games that they own, like Halo Reach. They should have worked way better for the initial list, to show people that they're commited to the BC. Well, I agree with you, it's more like a gift, a fan service, but once it's there, it becomes part of the product and your audience will put a lot of pressure.
  • Kind of ridiculous to claim that since the feature is just launching and the list will be updated.
  • I'm just saying it's a fail that they asked us to vote and none of the top games are on this list at launch. It isn't a fail that they made this happen but the fact they failed on delivering.
  • No, if anything the publishers failed. Microsoft did what they can in the available time and you can be sure they are continuing to push the publishers of the top voted games with the highest priority. Did Microsoft ever say "vote for the games we should launch with"? No, they said "We're launching with over 100 games; now let us know which are your favourites so we can work on them too."
  • It's not very promising for the future of backwards compatibility, though, if 5 months after they announced it was coming, all they could get was 104 games. I cannot comprehend why any publisher would say say no to "hey, you do nothing, we'll do everything, and you'll potentially earn more money", but the fact that only 104 games have been agreed to after five months is not a good sign.
  • Hey man why you always get on here and hate on MSFT. They are getting more games soon. I think its a great move to provide it. Other platforms are making you buy the game again. So in my opinion there is not much to complain about
  • My comment has nothing to do with MSFT. It has to do with publishers not agreeing to backwards compatibility.
  • Ah ok. I thought you were saying its MSFT fault there weren't more games. Like you said its on the publishers who are all about profit
  • Hey Coip. May I ask what your complains from MS are then? I'm honestly not following. Just read that you have many forum posts and so on so I would like to hear from you. Not the ones hating on you. I'm genuinely interested to hear what's the problem with Kinect and so on. Cause from what I've seen voice commands are taken to the next level with Cortana integration through Kinect, or now even through a simple mic.
  • @davisorle: My pleasure. My complaint--and this holds for any company, not just Microsoft--is that with the Xbox One on Day One, Microsoft sold a product with certain features. Some people made purchasing decisions based on the existence of those features--for example, Kinect gesture navigation. Microsoft has already collected their money, but now they are retroactively going back and taking away those features. They are not giving consumers a choice--they are forcing the upgrade on them (unlike say, as they do on PC where the Windows 8.1 upgrade was optional--those who wanted it could get it, those who wanted to stay on  Windows 8.0 could stay). So, for those consumers who bought and paid for their Xbox One's for a specific reason, they are now, unfairly, having what they paid for stolen away. That's anti-consumerism. The end result is that the consumer is getting screwed over, while the multi-billion-dollar corporation profits. That's not okay. Now, in a normal society, filled with socially integrated folk, people would empathize with the plights of others, even if such plights did not personally resonate with them, but on this website (and, really, the entire Internet), you often get a lot of sociopathic egomaniacs, incapable of empathy, who hypocritically attack others without actually using logic, reason, and compassion. That's a compendium of what has occured here.
  • In the world of self entitlement, everything takes a week. FACT >I cannot comprehend True also.
  • @coip: that's not how it'd work. MS can say that, but a penny pincher may see it as "oh, people will be able to play a game without having to buy it again? maybe we'll just wait to see if we decide to make a port to xbox one." moreover, publishers may want to time their release with other releases. fallout 3 coming out with fallout 4, that can be useful. so maybe some others may release some earlier games in a franchise when a new one comes out so they can try and hitch a ride on people buying the latest one and then being, "eh, lets buy some of the earlier ones too. why not?" you're severely oversimplifying things without really putting any thought into it whatsoever.
  • There are, what, more than 1000 games on Xbox 360. How many of those have been or in the process of being remastered? A dozen? Two dozen, maybe? In essence, almost none. Most of those titles will not be competing with remastered versions of themselves. Most of those titles will never be released on 8th-generation consoles at all. Many people would purchase 7th-generation games--games that would otherwise not be purchased as they'd be stuck on a dying platform--if they could be assured of having access to them on their 8th-generation console, for a decade to come. In short, nearly every publisher, with very few exceptions, who turns down backwards compatibiity, is literally turning down the opportunity for free money.
  • 100 games was the initial projection - they are delivering 104, regardless of being exactly what has been of interest from the community, this is a win. More games are to come, this is entirely a bonus to the Xbox community. As publishers see the interest this feature has, more will agree to be included. While I have no plans of getting rid of any of my 4 Xbox 360s, being able to play some of the games on my Xbox One is welcome.
  • 101 games was the target, and they over-delivered. There is much more to consider than "you'll earn more money", for instance if those companies are planning on releasing remasters (then BC could cost them potential earnings), or to scale up multiplayer servers that were previously being scaled down because of lower usage, or publishing rights having changed hands, or any number of things that you're not at all privy to.
    People around here need to stop complaining about things being doomed before they're even released and start taking more of a "wait and see how it's received by the public" approach.
  • "There is much more to consider than 'you'll earn more money', for instance if those companies are planning on releasing remasters"
    As I wrote above, "There are, what, more than 1000 games on Xbox 360? How many of those have been or in the process of being remastered? A dozen? Two dozen, maybe? In essence, almost none." Very few publishers have to consider that possibility. Your other point--about maintaining servers--is a bit more widespread of an issue, but even then, there are hundreds upon hundreds of single-player only XBLA games that have no online component, have no remasters planned, and therefore have no logical reason for not being on the list after five months of negotiating. I'm not "complaining about things being doomed". I'm pointing out that it is odd that the majority of publishers are acting economically irrational.
  • When was it up to Microsoft to deliver any games that they didn't publish? If you followed any of this you would know that it's up to the publisher to ok the emulation, MS can do nothing but ask, they can't force their hand. Not to mention they only just rolled it out with more to come.
  • MIcrosoft is saying if the game is not there is because the publisher didn't let them. Lets boycott them
  • Not really. Are you going to boycott Microsoft Studios for Reach's omission? Some might have declined, some might have said they are still looking into it (maybe evaluating a game for online play), and might have not responded yet.
  • So are you gonna boycott Bethesda for not putting Skyrim out, even though they did ok Fallout 3? You don't know the plans of Bethesda, or any of the other publishers. It's not a cut and dry thing.
  • Why would they put Skyrim up when they are making money with ESO subscriptions and releasing a big update to ESO next week Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I just want a full 360 emulator. So that I can plop in ANY 360 disc and have it played. That way i can play origianl Xbox games via 360 emulation. I desparetely want to play Shenmue again.
  • I guess you mean Shenmue II? I'm looking forward to that and other OG Xbox titles. Microsoft has hinted that may be in the works. But a full 360 emulator is unlikely, due to technical and legal restrictions. They've taken the Bleemcast! route. This had the benefit that it shows better integration into the OS.
  • Skyrim oh Skyrim....... with full dlc take my money NOW (never owned on 360)
  • Both Lego Harry Potter games. That'd be nice!
  • Hope GTA IV is part of the second/third patch of backward compatible games ... Or any patch
  • Batch*, not patch
  • My bad.
  • Everyone should vote for Dig Dug and Ms. Pac Man
  • This
  • Sonic generations although the current sonic listings are pretty nice
  • Where is Alan Wake?! Posted via the Galaxy Note 5
  • A lot of Xbox 360 games are missing from this list.
  • Ok Posted via the Galaxy Note 5
  • I expect it to be added when Quantum Break launches, with a free DL for it in the QB box, like with Fallout 3/4.
  • I hope so too. Posted via the Galaxy Note 5
  • Whre is your Windows Phone?!
  • Well I had a software problem that was out of my control. It could not be fixed so it remains bricked. I took it to the store and there was nothing they could do for my Lumia 1520 sadly. It would shut off no matter what I did. It started acting weird after the Lumia denim update. Posted via the Galaxy Note 5
  • Halo 2 - 4
  • Halo 2 wasn't on the 360 in any form, it was on the OG Xbox and part of the Master Chief Collection on the Xbox One.
  • I'd rather a next gen sequel to Red Dead.
  • It's in the works as we speak.
  • You know, I know it sounds silly, but I really think that they should add things like Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo 3 and Halo 4, which was available for 360. I realize that it's part of MCC, but I think that the whole point of backward compatibility was to say, "Hey, you can upgrade to an Xbox One but your old games will still work", not only to increase the size of the library.
  • Nope, sorry, your logic doesn't make sense.
  • I think his logic does make sense, and that it will happen. Microsoft has said they intend to make every first-party release backwards compatible.
  • I wholeheartedly agree. I have the MCC but would much rather just play Halo 3 when I want to play Halo 3. I hate the way MCC handled multiplayer. Microsoft has to set the precedent here, releasing games regardless of their stake in current "remastered" XB1 versions. True backwards compatibility will bring back hordes of PS4 defectors, these 104 games will not...
  • They're probably waiting for more feedback on the first batch before releasing the important heavy hitters. Imagine the response if Forza 3 or Halo 3 were totally glitchy on release.
  • Capcom fighters where you at?
  • Unfortunately, my Capcom fighting games are on my PS systems.
  • I'll take an Elder Scrolls 6 please and Mass Effect 4. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • That would mean building those games for 360, which would ruin them.
  • No, just cut 360 and ps3 off, plain and simple, "next gen" aka current gen is been out for awhile now, they just need to focus on those. Sorry 360 and ps3 people, time to upgrade. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Then don't say you want those games in an article about requesting backwards-compatible games...
  • Quick question. Do my free games with gold on the list work on my Xbox One
  • They would just appear in your available downloads list on your One.
    Because your live account has 360 purchase history. That is assuming they are listed as backwards compatible.
  • O ok so AC 2 will be available for me. I'll check now im on the preview
  • Not available yet, possibly tomorrow or Wednesday, if not then it will be on release day. Microsoft just gave the list out they didnt say they are available to preview I'm afraid Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Needs Reach and NFS: MW (the original) and Carbon. Probably no other games I would be that interested in. MAYBE Black Ops 2.
  • F U, Activision.
  • How about give an ability to plot 360 and orig Xbox game discs into a PC and be able to play them????
  • Does it make games better? Graphically?
  • No its just and emulation. So its basically a virtual Xbox360 from what I understand
  • Actually it's not a virtual 360. They're making a version of the 360 software that will run in Xbox One. Which is why even if you own the disc it will download the entire game to your XB1 hard drive. It's not an emulator. It's also why they have to have the publishers approval. They're technically modifying the software.
  • I would have no problem paying $5/game to get my faves ported over. Pay the companies for their work and a little profit to encourage them. Might get some of the COD titles done that way
  • Shhhh... Don't give Activision any ideas.
  • The orange box. Half life 2 never gets enough recognition. Too many people voting for CoD because they don't know any better.
  • I've been wishing Valve would release the original Half Life on Xbox for years now.
  • Battlefield Bad Company!
  • What the helll ????? Why the need for those POS COD ???   Bring Bayonetta ASAP!
  • Supposedly black ops 1 is in the works right now.
  • A vote for GTA IV on Xbox One
  • GTA 5 for the 360 on the Xbox one ? Never going to happen, as they already have a Xbox one version available.... You can dream for that one but, it will never happen...  
  • reread my comment, GTA IV which is GTA 4
  • Injustice God's Among US and Batman Arkham Origins!! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 if this goes on the list I will purchase the Xbox One.
  • Dead Space Trilogy for me!
  • This just shows, voting didn't work.... If Microsoft really cared, they would of put a MAJOR effort to get those games on the list... Not sure why devs/company would not want these games on it... People still have to buy the game/or buy a licence for it, so they will make money on it anyway about it...
  • but there's a whole lot of people who won't have to buy the game, plus find that they magically have a big library of games they could play instead of buying new ones. so, its not so cut and dry with the publishers. voting does work. just because microsoft *didn't* get a game does *not* mean they didn't put major effort into those games.
