XBOX One’s backward compatibility games list

| |

XBox One’s backward compatibility is a new shoutout of the gaming world this time. As a gamer, I too was very excited after I heard the news of Dark souls getting Xbox ones backward compatibility. If you are a hardcore video game lover, backward compatibility is not a new word for you, but if you are new or play video game very less, you might be thinking what is this. So to put your search to end here we are describing what backward compatibility really means:

If you own XBox one but want to enjoy games of Xbox 360, then this news will definitely spark a light of joy in your eyes. While not all the games( some really good old games) are not available for XBox one, now is the time, you can also enjoy those games even on your Xbox one. i.e. without buying a new or old Xbox 360.

If you are a hardcore video game lover, backward compatibility is not a new word for you, but if you are new or play video game very less, you might be thinking what is this. So to put your search to end here we are describing what backward compatibility really means:

If products designed for the new standard can receive, read, view or play older standards or formats, then the product is said to be backward-compatible; examples of such a standard include data formats and communication

It means: you can now actually enjoy Xbox 360 games on Xbox one.


Just after when I heard the news about Dark Souls, I searched if there are more games that are getting backward compatibility of XBOX One. This lead me to 4 more games that Xbox One’s owner going to enjoy: These games are confirmed but are not available at this time. The games are:

  • Red Dead Redemption
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • Left 4 Dead 2
  • Halo Wars
  • Castlevania: Symphony of the night

With more research on this, I found full list of games and then I thought of sharing it with my dear readers:
