For the love of Backwards Compatibility

(Featured image sourced from Gamespot)

Released to the public on November 12th 2015, Backwards Compatibility lets gamers play a select number of Xbox 360 games on their Xbox One console. The number of playable games started at 104, but more have been added periodically since then. Personally, I adore the idea of being able to pop my old games into my Xbox One and firing up Gears of War or Alan Wake. Hell, I discovered my love for Beyond Good And Evil HD thanks to it.

It was a smart business move by Microsoft and i’m glad they decided to implement the feature. I confess that i’ve spent no small sum of money during my time on the Xbox 360 and i’m glad it hasn’t gone to waste. Sure, I have my moderately powerful computer to play games on now. It’s something I prefer, but there is a certain satisfaction booting up a console in my living room.

And for all the raging between which platform to play on is better, to me, it doesn’t matter. I play games for the fun of it, and the more games I can experience and enjoy the better. Backward Compatibility is just one of the many options I have. Every so often I log onto my Xbox One and an old dusty game that I forgot I bought a while back pops into my ready to download list. It’s like Christmas and all the presents were bought by me a few years ago.

Thanks for reading about my love for Backward Compatibility! If you liked it, then please follow this blog for similar updates in the future.
