Two More Xbox One Backwards Compatible Games Arrive
More Xbox 360 games are now playable on Xbox One.
The Xbox One's backwards compatibility library expands again today with two more titles.
If you already own these games on Xbox 360, they should show up automatically on your Xbox One. If not, you can buy them on your console or through the Xbox Store links below.
- Civilization Revolution (on sale this week for $9; 4.95 GB)
- Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet ($10; 577.14 MB)
In other backwards compatibility news, Microsoft's Bill Stillwell posted an detailed message last month in which he discussed the technical and operational considerations for games in the catalog. People have been clamoring for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, but it hasn't happened yet.
"I can't underestimate the complexity of the non-technical part of this," Stillwell said. "We are in some cases reviewing licensing agreements that are a decade old, evaluating the impact of new technology on those agreements, and then negotiating with a host of other parties for terms to get renewed/changed. This is not a quick process most times."
You can read the full message below, but remember that it's from March 14.
No BC releases today, but the week isn't over. More importantly though, a message that might help explain the state of things today. pic.twitter.com/9ML0VPDqJx— Bill Stillwell ?? (@wcstillwell) March 14, 2017
