This article is based on the new Xbox one backward compatibility.  The Xbox one backward compatibility has just arrived worldwide.  The backward compatibility arrived on November 12th.  Originally the Xbox one had plans of having no backward compatible game.  But ever since Phil spencer took over the Xbox division, there has been many changes and tweaking to the ecosystem that included one of the biggest news on Xbox one and that being the Xbox one backward compatibility.

It requires the users to upgrade the console with the Xbox live experience once it is available on 12th of November.  The users will be able to play over 100 Xbox 360 titles after the upgrade.  This includes the games owned by the user as a digital copy or in the physical disc.  If the user owns only a disc, the user can insert the disc and the Xbox one will download the game form the library and the users can play the game as long as the disc stays inserted.  If it is a digital copy, it will show up on the game library under ready to install.

If the player has DLC purchased, the DLC will show up in the manage game option in the menu.

The Xbox one is tricked into thinking that it is a Xbox 360 in the Xbox one backward compatibility program.  The users can see all the achievements, friends list, use the same Xbox live servers.  Having the same server serves the purpose of being able to play an Xbox 360 game in Xbox one and also play it with friends who own an Xbox 360.  By using the Start and select the players will be able to see the guide to use an Xbox 360.  And pressing the guide button on the Xbox one controller will bring up the Xbox one interface leaving the Xbox one backward emulation.

The players can use these features in multitasking settings but it completely shuts down the Xbox 360 features as soon as the Xbox one apps are launched in leaving the Xbox one backward compatibility.  Just make sure that you save the Xbox 360 games as you are going to quit the game and do something else.

Now we know that we can play Xbox 360 games on an Xbox one backward compatible, how well can we play it?  When the preview had released and tested, the frame rate drop was noticeable in game like andromeda.  But when the official release has been made, the performance has been improved a little bit actually.  The games do work well with the Xbox one backward compatibility.  Even the graphical showcase like the Gears of War was performing pretty good in Xbox one.  But there were times of slow down but it happened in xbox 360 as well.

The overall performance of Xbox one backward is good.  The process of downloading and installing the game is also easy.  Everything just works.  The games work equally well if not better.  Microsoft has promised to increase the Xbox one backward compatibility.  We do not really know how well Microsoft is going to keep its word but below we have listed the games that are already out in Xbox one backward compatibility.  If they also figure out the Xbox one backward compatibility for multi disc games like andromeda, they will make it easier for Xbox 360 users to upgrade to Xbox one.
