Xbox fans rejoice! For Microsoft has heard your plea. A list of Xbox One backward compatible games 2017 is now available and it includes a lot of old favorites.
Microsoft has made several Xbox 360 games compatible to Xbox One. This allows players who have their old Xbox 360 disks playable in the Xbox One console. Aside from the physical game, previous digital downloads can also be installed in the new console.
The backward compatibility feature wasn’t included in the Xbox One at first. But Microsoft later made this feature available and has been slowly adding more games to the list.
Here are the titles for the list of Xbox One backward compatible games 2017:
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Battlefield 3 (disk version only)
Dragon Age: Origins

With this feature, Xbox One is garnering positive feedback as compared to the Playstation 4. The PS4 has no backward compatibility available for games on the PS3. However, PS4 players can stream several PS3 games under Playstation Now for a monthly subscription of $10.
Highly Petitioned Xbox Games
Battlefield 2 and 3 and Dragon Age: Origins were among the highly petitioned games to be included in the list of Xbox One backward compatible games 2017. Other titles that players wanted to have included were Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Grand Theft Auto 4.
Nevertheless, with this move from Microsoft, many will be giving their old games another round with this backward compatibility feature. No other games were confirmed to be added to the list but this is deemed a great start. More Xbox 360 games could probably be made available on the Xbox One soon.
Which game are you most excited to play again? Which ones are you banking on for Microsoft to include soon? Let us know!
