Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Test

We predicted it in our latest podcast and Microsoft revealed it in their E3 2015 press conference: backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games on Xbox One.

Initially the following games are supported, but more will follow:

A Kingdom for Keflings
A World of Keflings
Alien Hominid HD
BattleBlock Theater
Defense Grid
Geometry Wars Evolved
Hexic HD
Jetpac Refuelled
Mass Effect
Perfect Dark
Perfect Dark Zero
Super Meat Boy
Toy Soldiers
Toy Soldiers: Cold War
Viva Piñata
Viva Piñata: TIP

But how well does it work? Well, we take a look at it by loading up the original Mass Effect, with footage of the process including any problems we meet.


We’ve found the Backward Compatible digital titles. Rather than appearing in your download queue, these titles can be found in Games and Apps, Games, scroll all the way to the end to see what you can re-download, and boom there they all are – if you’ve previously downloaded them on the Xbox 360 of course.
