First 104 backwards compatible 360 titles officially revealed


It’s been a little while since Microsoft announced that they’d cracked backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One. In truth, I remember saying at the time of the One’s release that it shouldn’t be that difficult to run an emulator inside the One’s OS to be able to play your favourites from the previous console generation.

The November console update that introduces this is due to start hitting machines from the 12th of the month for the majority of Xbox One owners. With this in mind Microsoft have officially announced via Mike Ybarra on Xbox Wire, the first 104 games to get the backwards compatible treatment.

The notable big-hitters in this list are arguably Assassin’s Creed 2, Borderlands, Fable 2, Fallout 3, Mass Effect and Mirror’s Edge.

For those wondering how it will work, it’s quite simple. If you had purchased a digital version of one of the games below, it will appear in your “Ready to Install” list. If you own the game disc itself, well, it’s the same as the current One titles. You load the disc in the console and it installs to the HDD. You’ll still need the game disc in the drive to play though.

Additionally, all future Games With Gold Xbox 360 titles will be available on this programme too, so One owners will get double the value from their Gold account.

You can find more information here as well as a comprehensive list of the games already available and those that will be coming to the programme soon, like the Bioshock series and Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Microsoft have even provided us with a handy trailer for the feature, with the ever-ready Larry Hryb.

Level up with Ubisoft Club


Ubisoft have announced a new incentive program – Ubisoft Club – that promises extra game content, access to betas, exclusive goodies and discounts in their store.

Unlike Ubisoft’s Uplay reward program, progress isn’t restricted per game and per milestone, at least that’s how the website reads. Sign in to the Club now using your Uplay account and boost your level with existing game progress you have made.

Could this be the end of Uplay? or will the Club bolster the game specific challenge and rewards? Only time will tell.

UPDATE: Ubisoft reached out to us to confirm:

Ubisoft Club replaces Uplay Win as the free single platform that rewards our players. Uplay remains the account that enable players to access all Ubisoft services such as forums, customer support, Uplay shop, Uplay PC and Ubisoft Club. Rewards already earned in Uplay Win will automatically be transferred to Ubisoft Club. Ubisoft Club also creates XP/Levels and Badges to enhance the game experience.
