Microsoft included seven game titles for the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility January 2017 and the list shows quite the potential. However, fans express their disappointment as Microsoft shows no sign of releasing the most voted Xbox One Backwards Compatibility idea. Xbox console owners hope that Microsoft would include Call of Duty: Black Ops II in the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility feature.
Xbox Head Phil Spencer teased before in GameSpot’s report that January would have several games included for the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility feature. Spencer did not disappoint the fans as Microsoft added more than three in the list. The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility January 2017 list include the following:
- Battlefield: Bad Company 2 – US$20; 4.88 GB
- Battlefield 3 – needs physical copy
- Dragon Age: Origins – US$15; 6.44 GB
- Ghostbusters – US$15: 6.18 GB
- Scrap Metal – US$15; 130.06 MB
- The Splatters – US$10; 505.95 MB
- Strania – US$10; 206.86 MB
If fans previously own the above mentioned games on their Xbox 360, it would automatically show up on their Xbox library. If not, they can purchase the said games which they can finally play on their Xbox Ones. Microsoft launched the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Program in November 2015 and has more than 300 games included.
Xbox One Backwards Compatibility January 2017: Still No Call of Duty Black Ops II
Although Microsoft statistics show that players spent at least 265 million hours playing Xbox 360 games on Xbox One in 2016, fans still wait for the top Xbox One Backwards Compatibility ideas to turn into reality. Four of the top five games include Call of Duty game titles.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II secures the first spot with at least 206,000 votes, Skyrim with at least 172,000, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 with 165,000, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 with 116,000, and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare with 113,000. Microsoft has yet to confirm their plans for the top Xbox One Backwards Compatibility ideas but fans expect these game titles soon.
