Microsoft To Celebrate Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Anniversary

by Damian Seeto


Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb said that Microsoft is set to celebrate the anniversary of Xbox One backwards compatibility later this month.

Larry Hyrb attended the PAX Australia event and were in attendance. The website said a “huge announcement” is coming, but Hyrb corrected them on Reddit.

He said:  “(sigh) pretty sure I did not say there was a HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT. So this (’s) headline is misleading. I said we had plans to celebrate the one year anniversary of the program.

If you want to know, Xbox One backwards compatibility started back on November 12th, 2015. The first few Xbox 360 games were made playable. Now there are lots of Xbox 360 games that you can play on the Xbox One.

Sadly, Major Nelson did not give out any more details on how Microsoft will be celebrate the anniversary. Hopefully it means a lot of Xbox 360 games will finally be backwards compatible. Many people are still hoping for Skate 3 to be playable.

A cool thing that should happen is original Xbox games being backwards compatible. This could be hard to achieve, although Microsoft has expressed interest in it in the past. Anyway, hopefully November 12th will bring us something cool in regards to backwards compatibility news.
