Red Dead Redemption Is Most Wanted for Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

John Marston rides again.

You may well have heard by now that Microsoft dropped a huge bomb on gamers when it was announced that backwards compatibility would be coming to the Xbox One. Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer announced that all publishers would need to do is give the go-ahead and Microsoft would do the rest.

A poll on Xbox feedback has been opened and Xbox gamers everywhere have been casting their vote on which game they’d most like to see become backwards compatible on the Xbox One. The top ten includes many great games from The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, to Fallout 3, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. However, it’s Rockstar’s hit 2010 game Red Dead Redemption which is currently in the number one spot.

Red Dead Redemption comes in first with six thousand more votes than Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 which is currently second. The top 20 are as follows:

  • Red Dead Redemption
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops II
  • Skyrim
  • Halo: Reach
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • Gears of War 3
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops
  • Fallout 3
  • Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
  • Mass Effect 3
  • BioShock Infinite
  • Fallout: New Vegas
  • Mass Effect 2
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  • Gears of War 2
  • Left 4 Dead 2
  • Call of Duty: World at War
  • Grand Theft Auto IV
  • Batman: Arkham City
  • Halo Wars

It doesn’t matter how much people want it, Microsoft can do nothing unless Rockstar approves the game to be backwards compatible. We see no reason why Rockstar wouldn’t approve such an action and the company should be very proud that Red Dead Redemption has beaten all these other great games.
