It appears Xbox 360 games Halo 3: ODST and SSX are coming to Xbox One by way of backwards compatibility. Reddit user joecamnet spotted Amazon listings for both games, with ODST said to come out on June 7 and SSX on June 14. In the case of ODST, it's being called the "Campaign Edition," since it reportedly includes the story mode and Firefight, but not online multiplayer as the original release did.
As you can see, the box art for both games clearly says, "Plays on Xbox One" (via VideoGamer.com). ODST and SSX are not among the five Xbox 360 games confirmed for the backwards compatibility program but not released yet. Those are Skate 3, BioShock, BioShock 2, BioShock Infinite, and Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Microsoft has pledged to continually add more games to the Xbox One backwards compatibility program in the future. Just this week, Microsoft launched seven new games into the program across two releases. You can see all of the 360 games you can currently play on an Xbox One here.
The rumored mid-June launch timing for ODST and SSX is also curious, considering that's around the time of E3. Microsoft recently announced exactly when its briefing at the show would be held.
