    XboxOne Xbox One will play over 100 Xbox 360 games, preview starts today

    Backwards compatibility is coming to current-gen gaming. Microsoft just announced that the Xbox One will be able to play Xbox 360 games. Announced on stage and demonstrated with Mass Effect by Mike Ybarra, it sounds a lot like the OG Xbox -> Xbox 360 setup, you just plug in the disc, the system downloads a patch if necessary and then plays it. Microsoft took a chance to ding Sony for its PlayStation Now setup too, promising "gamers won't have to pay to play games they already own." According to Major Nelson, if you're in the Xbox preview program you will be able to try this out later today. A teaser image for the feature showed off other games like Perfect Dark Zero, Gears of War, Super Meat Boy, Halo Reach, Halo 3, Shadowrun and Borderlands.

    That would be a nice feature if it actually works. Backwards compatibility on the 360 was never great and they planned to have that from day 1.

    classic dead rising on the xbox one sounds good to me
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    If this was available from the start, allowing me to play all my 360 favourites, i would have probably bought an Xbone instead of a PS4.

    If this works I see this as good news. Wonder why they kept a lid on this as surely it will have effected sales of the ONE.

    The install works the same as on the Xbox One by the looks of it. If you insert a 360 game disc it will install on the Xbox One HD and you will need the disc in the drive to play it. If it's a digital download you will obviously not need the physical media.

    Not got any games from the initial list to try it out myself though.

    Hope this isn't as crap as the 360 running original XBox games where they have very limited support for games and they drop it so don't support many games. I'm guessing that it will go this way though as it's going to be pretty tough to get 100% compatibility of all 360 games.

    Liked that you can play cross platform online too. Nice little touch that.

    It's a nice feature to have that will not get used, if you play games and are in awe of how it looks then the last thing you will want in your nice shiny Xbone is an old generation game or am I missing something?
