Xbox Backward Compatibility program news: Backward-compatible games showcased but no final and official list yet


Has the list of new games under the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program already been unveiled? Not quite. Microsoft typically announces the “official additions” to the backward compatibility catalogue at 9 a.m. PST or 12 p.m. EST on the third Sunday of November each year. So, fans will have to wait few more days before a formal announcement could be confirmed.

To keep fans from frowning on this update, rumors reveal that Microsoft has already set up a new page for its Black Friday sale event. To start off, “Modern Warfare 3” generated above 111,000 community votes indicating that the game must be on the roster of Backward Compatibility program. This game proved to be one of the most requested media titles as well, according to the survey report from Xbox Feedback site.

The same survey report identified “Oblivion” at rank 15 with more than 55,000 community votes. Microsoft likewise teased other game titles like “Soul Suspect” and “Super Dungeon Bros” on Xbox One, while “Monkey Island” will be on Xbox 360. Currently, approximately more than 280 game titles are stored in the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program.

A few more spoilers to the unsatisfied fan, be mindful that “Murder Soul Suspect” is rumored to be live until the midnight of Dec. 15 for Xbox One. “Far Cry: Blood Dragon” is downloadable on Xbox 360 starting Nov. 21 until the month ends. The lineup for Xbox One Backwards Compatibility offering promises to get a little bigger with rumors of “Dead Space Ignition” and “Escape Dead Island” being part of the compatibility scheme.

Xbox Feedback Community Manager Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb noted some errors in their list of games for the said program. He added that the game list is currently being cleaned up, and these games will be available soon, as reported by Daily Star .

Watch out for the final lineup of game titles for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
