assasins creed.

Thanks to backward compatibility, your Xbox One library has gained quit a lot of new (previous titles) games. Although the list of compatible Xbox 360 games consists mostly of digital-only games and retro remakes, major blockbuster titles such as Dark Souls, Mirror’s Edge, Fallout 3, Halo Reach and the entire Gears of War series can still be found among the list. Microsoft has recently been adding new games to the list as often as multiple times a week so lets expect more soon from them.

To get your console ready for backward compatibility, simply download the free New Xbox One Experience update. After which you can access your digital 360 games from the “My Games and Apps” menu, from there you can play your games the usual way, by putting them in your Xbox One console.

In telecommunications and computing, a product or technology is backward compatible (BC) or downward compatible if it can function properly given input generated by, or meant for, an older product or technology, such as a legacy system. If products designed for the new standard can receive, read, view or play older standards or formats, then the product is said to be backward-compatible; examples of such a standard include data formats and communication protocols. Modifications to a system that do not allow backward compatibility are sometimes called “breaking changes.” Or simply put, a new component is said to be backward compatible if it provides all of the functionality of the old component..
