100+ Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Game List Coming Soon
Not much longer to wait.
Microsoft will announce a list of more than 100 Xbox 360 titles playable on Xbox One through backwards compatibility this coming Monday, November 9. Xbox engineering boss Mike Ybarra shared the timing in a tweet. "For those asking, we'll announce the initial set of 100+ backward compatible titles on 11/9," he said.
That's just a few days before the New Xbox One Experience, the significant update that introduces backwards compatibility and more, arrives on November 12. For now, you can check out all of the confirmed titles so far, which include games like Borderlands, Fallout 3, Gears of War 1-3, and Mass Effect.
Looking beyond the initial list, Microsoft has pledged that new titles will be added to the lineup on a regular basis. In addition, all future Xbox 360 Games With Gold titles will be backwards-compatible.

Microsoft has high hopes for Xbox One backwards compatibility. Xbox executive Aaron Greenberg says this new feature will help the Xbox One stand out against rival platforms such as the PlayStation 4.
"I think it'll be tremendous. It's another differentiator for us," he said. "We're going to be the only next-gen console delivering backwards compatibility."
