When Microsoft announced its backwards compatibility, many people wondered just how many games and what kind of games will be available for that. Since it has been nearly a year since it was announced, some questions have popped up regarding some of the older multi-disc games and if they will ever be able to have some backwards compatibility options. Well, it seems that the answer is yes.
Major Nelson took to Reddit, as one does, to announce that Xbox One consoles have been quietly enabled to play multi-disc Xbox 360 games starting with Deux Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut.
“We know fans were asking for this feature and our engineers worked hard developing a solution to enable it so we could further expand the titles included in Xbox One Backward Compatibility,” an Xbox spokesperson told Engadget. “We’re continuing to listen to our fans on Xbox Feedback and work with our publishing partners to grow out library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles and will work to include more multi-disc games.”
Backwards compatibility has been a boon for Microsoft and their initially struggling Xbox One console. It seems that since the launch of the backwards compatibility it has caused Microsoft to enjoy boosted sales, as well as better feedback from users. There are over 100 games that are available to pay on the Xbox One. Sony better start bringing their A game.
