Xbox One Adds 3 More Backwards Compatible Games
More 360 titles are now playable on Xbox One.
Xbox One's steadily expanding library of backwards compatible games continues to grow. Major Nelson announced on Twitter that three more Xbox 360 titles are now playable on Microsoft's current-gen console, including two more installments from the Saints Row series.
Both the original Saints Row and the 360 version of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell are now backwards compatible with Xbox One. That makes three Saints Row games to receive backwards compatibility support this month, following the addition of Saints Row II at the beginning of May. Rounding out the new BC games is the tabletop racer Toybox Turbos.
As always, if you own a physical copy of any of the aforementioned games, you can now pop it into your Xbox One to initiate a download and begin playing. Alternately, if you own any of the games digitally, you'll find them waiting automatically in the Ready to Download section of the My Games and Apps menu.
If you're interested in playing any of the new BC games but don't happen to own the 360 versions, you can also purchase them digitally from the Xbox Store. Saints Row and Toybox Turbos are available for $10 / £9 each, while Gat Out of Hell runs for $15 / £12.
Since it was first implemented back in 2015, backwards compatibility has been a very popular feature among Xbox One owners. Microsoft recently revealed that players have collectively logged nearly 1 billion hours playing backwards compatible games on Xbox One.
