Which Xbox 360 games will make it to the Xbox One?

2 min read


One of the best bits of news to come out of E3 is that the Xbox One is getting backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games. This is huge, and may be exactly the push some people need to adopt Microsoft’s latest console. The only problem is that implementing this feature isn’t as simple as releasing an update which magically makes older 360 titles work in the Xbox One drive. No, games will have to be downloaded digitally from the marketplace, and not all of them will be available.

To somewhat remedy this, Microsoft are putting the power in your hands. Which games do you want them to make available first?

With new games added to the roster every month, now you can play both generations of games on one console. We can’t promise every title will be available, but we’re working hard to make as many of your favorite Xbox 360 titles playable on Xbox One. Let us know which Xbox 360 games you’re most excited to play on Xbox One.

This is bad news for those who perhaps own some niche Xbox 360 games that they were hoping to play on their new console. For others though, all is wonderful – the top hitting games will be receive compatibility at some stage.

Here’s the top 10 of most wanted Xbox 360 games at time of writing:

  1. Red Dead Redemption (37 219 votes)
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops II (33 168 votes)
  3. Skyrim (33 031 votes)
  4. Halo: Reach (28 651 votes)
  5. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (28 042 votes)
  6. Gears of War 3 (23 414 votes)
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops (22 750)
  8. Fallout 3 (22 331)
  9. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (20 906)
  10. Mass Effect 3 (20 356)

Sheesh, that’s a lot of Call of Duty that people are wanting. I also find it odd that both Gears of War 1 and 2 are up there, considering that Gears of War is being remastered.

For interests sake, I took a look at the bottom 10 games. Here they are, from worst to less worse:

  1. Espn 2k5 (8 votes)
  2. Dance Central (12 votes)
  3. Fireburst (35 votes)
  4. Go! Go! Break Steady (36 votes)
  5. BCFx-Doug Williams Edition (36 votes)
  6. Beat’n Groovy (36 votes)
  7. Field & Stream (36 votes)
  8. Masquerade (36 votes)
  9. Inferno Pool (36 votes)
  10. Obut Pétanque 2 (36 votes)

If you own any of these games and hold onto the hope that you’ll be able to play them on the Xbox One… sorry. It doesn’t look like that will ever be happening, unless of course, Microsoft get around to making each and every single title in the Xbox 360 available on the market. I feel that could take a few decades or so though, so I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you.

What do you think of the top 10 otherwise? Are your most wanted games up there?

  1. My 360 is only used for Red Dead Redemption and Forza 4 / Horizon. Should RDR make the list I know what I’ll be investing in ASAP. 😀

      Instead of Nier 2 they should have announced Lost Odyssey 2! That game was FAR more popular and better in all aspects in my opinion. So sad they forgot about that game.

    Gears of War 2&3, and the Mass Effect series. I don’t need Gears of War 1 since it is getting the upscale treatment.

    Surprised by how many CoD titles there are. Once I’ve played it and it’s run its course with multiplayer I move on

    Definitely Viva Pinata. THE BEST XBOX GAME EVER MADE! and the first Gears of War – I don’t like the last two.
