You’ll Soon Be Able to Play 104 More Games on Your Xbox One

E3 2015 was filled to the brim with outstanding announcements. A bevy of surprise game reveals made the whole event truly memorable, but the Xbox One getting backwards compatibility support was easily the most impactful announcement at the event. It instantly bolstered the One’s increasingly impressive catalogue of games and today, Microsoft finally confirmed which titles will be supported—and there are quite a few awesome franchises that made the first cut.

Here’s the massive list of 104 (!!) games that will be backwards compatible on the Xbox One come November 12 (via digital license or disc):

There’s a nice mix of games here—and a good chance there’s something on this list you’re interested in playing. I’ll be personally going through the Gears of War series once again, and South Park: Stick of Truth is worthy of a second play. Microsoft announced that regular updates to the list will start in December, with several Halo and Bioshock  games already planned to make an appearance. Also, remember that all future Xbox 360 Games with Gold releases will be compatible on the One, so you will now be getting 4 free games to play on the newest console every month. It’s an incredible deal that Sony currently can’t match with PS Plus. So it’ll be interesting to see if Microsoft sticks to their word and consistently adds more titles to the list that will be BC.

Will you guys be playing any of these games on November 12? Will you have enough time to play them with Fallout 4 being out in the wild? Do you think this means we will see fewer remasters hitting retailers shelves the next few years? Let us know in the comments below.
