backwards compatible xbox 360

Now that backwards compatibility has been added to the Xbox One, we have plenty of exciting things to look forward to in the future. Whilst the catalogue of available backwards compatible Xbox 360 games is still quite expansive, Microsoft plans to add more games to the list.

In fact, Microsoft has revealed that they will be unveiling new backwards compatible titles each month. If you've got any Xbox 360 games lying around that aren't yet supported for backwards compatibility, we'd definitely suggest holding onto them.

Phil Spencer revealed on Twitter that the Xbox team will announce new games monthly. It's expected that each month a new updated list will be posted online by somebody working at Xbox, although the exact date for the monthly titles has not yet been decided.

It's great to see that Microsoft will still be putting resources into the new backwards compatibility feature. I personally cannot wait to see what new games are added to the list each month. I have a big backlog of Xbox 360 games that I still haven't played through so the backwards compatibility feature will give me more of an incentive to dust off my collection.

In other news, Xbox announced the free Games with Gold that would be available in December. Unfortunately the December backwards compatibility list has not yet been released but we do know that the following games will be available for free to Gold members throughout the month:

Thief - Dec. 16 to Jan. 15, 2016

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing - Dec. 16 to Jan. 15, 2016

CastleStorm - Dec. 1 to Dec. 15

Sacred 3 - Dec. 16 to Dec. 31

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising - from Dec. 1
