Undoubtedly, the Xbox One offers one of the highest end gaming experiences currently available. Being the flagship offering from Microsoft, its premium specs and performance does not come as a surprise. However, the Xbox One did not support backward compatibility with Xbox 360 games when it was launched in 2013. This caused the public to clamor for the feature to save up on money get the most out of the console.
It was only in 2015 that the tech giant faced the issue and finally implemented the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program. The console now supports hundreds of games that were originally playable through the Xbox 360, with plans of expanding to even the original Xbox. There are currently almost 300 games in the roster, with weekly updates for games to be added on the list. This week, three more titles are added to the game library.
