Games for all!
The backwards compatibility feature of the Xbox One allows players to play Xbox 360 games. The feature has proved to be hugely popular and many great games like Red Dead Redemption and Mass Effect have been made available.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer has revealed on Twitter that he’s a big fan of the backwards compatible feature and that he would like to see all 360 games eventually be playable on the Xbox One.
@BlackOpsXboxOne I like the progress on BC. We'd like to have all and work on 3P games is always a partnership with publisher.

As it stands, Call of Duty: Black Ops II is currently the most requested game to be ported to the Xbox One however, it’s not up to Microsoft. The publisher of the game must give Microsoft the go ahead before the game can be made available. One the green-light has been given, Microsoft does all the work. Many publishers have been very supportive of the feature, but some may be hesitant due to plans to remaster their games. Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3, Call of Duty: World at War, and Call of Duty: Black Ops are already available to play but time will tell if we ever see Black Ops II come to the Xbox One.
As we reported earlier in the week, four new games have just been made available through backwards compatibility. What games are you hoping to see come to the Xbox One?
