Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Coming Today for Preview Members

on June 15, 2015 12:53 PM

Microsoft just dropped its first megaton and announced Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility for Xbox One during its press conference at E3 2015.

The games will look the same as they did on Xbox 360, but will include full Xbox Live features, Game DVR, Screenshots, and Windows 10 streaming. We also won’t have to pay for the games we already own, which is a massive perk.

A few initial backwards compatible games will be available today for preview members, and the feature will be available for everyone in the holidays.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
