Rockstar Games is the developer of the world's famous game "Grand Theft Auto" and it announced today that its open world game developed in 2006 "Bully" will be playable on Xbox One, but through backwards compatibility.

According to Gamespot, those who already have "Bully: Scholarship Edition" on Xbox 360 could access the game on Xbox One game library automatically. Otherwise, those interested to have "Bully" could purchase it on their console or from the official website of Xbox.

Microsoft's Major Nelson announced on Twitter that two more Xbox 360 games- "Catherine" and "Raskulls"- were included in the backwards compatibility catalog. "Bully: Scholarship Edition" could be purchased at $15 with 2.96 GB storage. "Catherine" could be purchased at $20 with 5.26 GB storage while "Raskulls" could be purchased at $10 with 152 MB storage.

There are more than 300 games composing the backward compatibility library of Xbox One. Earlier this week, all the core first-person shooter "BioShock" games- the original BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite- joined the backward compatibility library.

According to Cinema Blend, some players are excited to play an old game on their newest console without a need to break out an old console. After 10 long years, "Bully" could now be played on the latest console. Besides, it is currently celebrating its 10th anniversary. On the other hand, RockStar Games allowed iOS and Android users to have the updated version of "Bully" earlier this month.

It was also reported that players should expect some graphical improvements compared to the rerelease of the game "Bully: Scholarship Edition" in 2008. Developers also confirmed that in order to suit to high resolution screens, they have already made the game's adjustments.  "Bully" that will be playable on Xbox One will also have physical control support, context sensitive touch controls and 3D touch for selected controller actions.
