It looks like Xbox One owners are actually spending more time playing the old classic Xbox 360 games via Microsoft's backward compatibility service, according to Phil Spencer. Over 300 back compatible titles have already been added to the list and nearly half of Xbox One owners are playing backward compatible games now.

It is a great achievement for all the people who are behind the project for its huge success. The initiative was launched back in 2015 with only a handful of games on its list until it expanded to include even some of the biggest titles in the console. Some of it includes "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" and "Red Dead Redemption". 

Although it's not clear how much time players allot in using the service, but it's apparent that Microsoft did make a good decision in starting such an initiative. Meanwhile, Sony wanted to take things differently, instead of following the path taken by Microsoft. European boss Jim Ryan also stated that the reason why they started the PS4 project is to deliver the much advance and socially-connected console, We Got This Covered reported. 

The fact that almost half of XBox One owners are using this feature is quite a feat, especially when there are already a lot of great games that are coming out for the Xbox One. But the system isn't just adding little games as well. They've also added games in all levels as well. It even came to a surprise that they were able to include three Bioshock games as the game already released "Bioshock: The Collection". But Microsoft seems to just keep on giving. 

According to Attack of the Fanboy, the backward compatibility service by Microsoft even turned the tides in as it helped undecided players choose the Xbox One, as they could still have the option to play their favorite 360 games without turning on the Xbox 360.
