The Xbox One's backwards compatibility feature launched a year ago this month with the New Xbox One Experience update.

This is up from 145 million hours as of August 2016.

There are now more than 280 Xbox 360 games that are playable on Xbox One; you can see all of them here. Games added to the catalog this month included Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, Skate 3, and Blue Dragon.

In other news about Xbox backwards compatibility, Microsoft engineering lead Mike Ybarra said recently that Project Scorpio will "of course" support backwards compatibility. The console goes on sale in holiday 2017.
