Xbox One Users Have Spent Nearly 1 Billion Hours Using Backward Compatibility

Backwards Compatibility Is Really Popular With Xbox One Owners!

Earlier this week, Microsoft announced that Xbox One users have spent almost 1 billion hours using the console’s backward compatibility library in order to play original Xbox and Xbox 360 games.


There are hundreds of older Xbox games that Xbox One users can play such as Bayonetta, Battlefield: Bad Company, the Dead Space trilogy and, as of most recently, Saints Row 2.

Even a classic early 2000s RPG such as The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is playable on the current gen console.

“It’s a great time to be a gamer and to be a part of Team Xbox,” read a recent Xbox news post about E3 2018. “We’re hard at work on exciting plans for E3, from what will be a great briefing filled with new games to the fan experience at the Microsoft Theater. This is our biggest E3 yet, and we look forward to a great week for gamers. Again, thank you to the amazing Xbox community.”

Microsoft has described their upcoming E3 2018 showing as their “biggest showing ever”. Their E3 conference is scheduled for June 10th at 1 PM PT (4 PM ET).

It is currently unknown what exactly Microsoft is going to reveal next month at E3 but Xbox boss Phil Spencer sure sounded confident last month when tweeting about their conference.
