First 104 Games For Xbox Backwards Compatibility Released

By Chip Tamplin

Published on Monday, November 9, 2015

Microsoft dropped the hammer at E3 2015 that backwards compatibility would be coming to the Xbox One with their newest system update. With said update launching this week, it was only a matter of time before the list was confirmed. Games like Gears of War, Borderlands and Mass Effect had already been confirmed, but with a voting system implemented, how many other big named titles would we see make the leap? From the looks of the list, there are definitely some standout games but there are still a lot of AAA titles that need to (and most likely will) be added down the line. With Games with Gold only featuring games that will make the leap over to new gen, your library will be growing exponentially.
