Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Tops 300 Titles with Bioshock Trilogy

by Kyle Hanson


What began as a surprise announcement has become a major selling point of the Xbox One console, and has just crossed a new huge milestone. Xbox One Backwards Compatibility has officially hit 300 supported titles with the addition of Bioshock, Bioshock 2, and Bioshock Infinite. These three games bring the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility list to 300 Xbox 360 games exactly.

These 300 games range widely, from small indie titles to huge AAA games like Bioshock. There are definitely still games that are on many gamers’ most wanted lists, including Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but Microsoft has seemed very quick to react to those interests. Two of the most requested games include the original Black Ops and Red Dead Redemption, both of which have been added to the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility list over the last few months.

Bioshock is another big get for the feature, adding the entire collection all in a single day. Each game in the series has its fans and detractors, so it’s nice that they were able to get all three games running on Xbox One. It is also nice seeing as how the remaster of Bioshock was recently released, which usually deters companies from allowing older titles to be playable on the new hardware.

To play Bioshock on Xbox One all you need is to either own the game digitally for Xbox 360, or insert the disc into the console. If you own it digitally you should be able to download it for free without much trouble. If you purchased the disc, you will need to insert it into your Xbox One to prompt the download. You’ll then need the disc available if you want to continue playing later on.

With Xbox One Backwards Compatibility hitting 300 games, the question now is, where is there left to go? Let us know what games you’re still dying to play on your Xbox One in the comments below.
