Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Double Agent join Xbox backward compatibility

Today, Larry Hryb, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, announced that Xbox 360 games Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Splinter Cell: Double Agent are now backward compatible on Xbox One. Both games are the heavy-hitters fans were hoping for, and they're still a lot of fun.

Backward compatibility opens Xbox One to a huge variety of games, spanning three generations of Microsoft's consoles. Despite hardware differences, it remains an outstanding feature, allowing a select library of older games to be played on Xbox One. While the majority of them are Xbox 360 titles, there are also some original Xbox games in there.

  • Awesome, love these games!!
  • I wish Microsoft had a plan where we could take our backward compatible Xbox 360 discs and exchange them either at the MS Store, or through the mail for a digital code for the same game, or maybe trade it in and get the code for $5. Something to that effect.
