Since last month, the Xbox One received a system update that allows it to play select Xbox 360 games. You can stick the original disc inside, or if you bought a digital copy via the 360’s Marketplace, or on Xbox.com, you can download it to your Xbox One and launch it from there. But what if you have done neither and want to just buy the game off the Xbox One?
After hundreds of requests through his Twitter feed, the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer finally spoke up. Stating to one tweet, “we’ve heard this request and we are working on a solution.” It’s a bit of a headscratcher as to why this convenience wasn’t included as part of the system update, especially since the list of compatible games is over 100 compared to the thousands that came out on the 360, but with that being the case it shouldn’t take long for this slip-up to be remedied.
