E3 2015: Xbox One with Backwards Compatibility for 360 Games

By Sam Coles:

So Microsoft dropped a real bomb as you can play Xbox 360 games by the end of the year, at first it will be a select few games and if you downloaded them they will automatically turn up in your ready to install folder. If you own the disc all you have to do is pop the disc in the drive and it will start to download the game, however even if you've downloaded it you must keep the game in the drive to verify that you own the game. This makes me happy not because of this new feature but because it shows if we shout loud enough they will listen and Phil Spenser has really turned Xbox around since the major disaster that was 2013.

The backwards compatibility is available to preview members now but it will be available to everyone this winter.
