List of Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Games Supposedly Leaked

The Xbox One will be getting an update on November 12th that will enable gamers to play a selection of Xbox 360 games on their newer console. But which ones? Now, it seems, we have the master list.

German site Xbox Dynasty claims to have the full list and reveals that many of the biggest 360 games will now be playable on Xbox One, including the entire Assassin's Creed and Gears of War series, all of the 360 Halo releases, Far Cry 2, 3 and Blood Dragon, Fable 2 and 3, and many more.

Microsoft announced plans for allow Xbox 360 play earlier this year - but support will only be on a game-by-game basis, as the Xbox One uses a software emulator that will need to be configured for each game. Interestingly, when playing a 360 title it will seemingly run the entire 360 dashboard software inside the Xbox One, giving you access to all of the online features (including multiplayer and DLC) from the 360. Brilliantly too though, you'll still be able to use the Xbox One's Game DVR to stream your games.

The update is due to hit on November 12th, so it is time to start blowing the dust from your 360 collection in preparation. [Xbox Dynasty via IB Times]
