The Xbox 360 versions of all three BioShock games are now backward compatible with the Xbox One. Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb took to Twitter to make the announcement.

Like with most backward compatible games for Xbox One, if you have the original Xbox 360 disc then you can just pop it into your Xbox One and start downloading the game (the disc will have to stay in the console in order to play, though). And if you got rid of your Xbox 360 games, or if you just never owned the games, then you can purchase them from the Xbox Store and download them digitally.
This is a generous move from 2K Games, the publisher of the BioShock series, as this year they released a remastered collection of all three BioShock games for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. When Microsoft first announced that backward compatibility would largely depend on publishers allowing their games to be backward compatible, one of the concerns some Xbox fans shared was that publishers might prefer to sell you their games again instead of letting you play the copy you already own. For many fans, it is reassuring to see a publisher who is already reselling their older games be open to backward compatibility as well.
Microsoft has shown no signs of slowing down when it comes to adding to the list of backward compatible titles. Recently they have added some fan favourites such as Bully, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
