Thought this was worth sharing, making my way through it now.

It has FREE DLC that is available for a number of Back Compat games.

Facts:
  • All Games with Gold titles on Xbox 360 will be backwards compatible
  • Games need to have publisher approval
  • Microsoft plans to have all MS published titles available (except for Kinect games or games with license issues)
  • 360 games using peripherals/kinect will not work
  • Menu+View brings up the 360 guide while playing a BC title.
  • You can party chat with 360 users while using a BC title.
  • Xbox One features such as screenshots, clip recording, Snap and twitch streaming can be used with BC games.
  • If you upload your Xbox 360 game saves to the cloud you can access them when playing BC titles via Xbox One

Thanks for putting this all together in one post.

I don't think they want me for their preview program, so looking forward to the rollout!

Don't forget all the other Gears of War games :)

For me, though, the list so far is Rare Replay, Shadow Complex and friends :p

Joking aside, I'm actually really happy that Toy Story 3 is in the list. That's a super fun little game.

I can definitely invite you, no promises you get accepted though. PM me!

Yep, just edited those in :p

Great title and thanks.
You're welcome. Thank Zorbs for the title, I originally had "Building The List" :p

Sweet! Thanks for making this! Subbed for sure!
No problem! Post here if you ever find anything and I'll update it!

Should add to the Facts section...

"360 games using peripherals/kinect will not work"

Other than that great job!
Very good extra point. Added

Great to see the games all in one place. Not much will change in the coming weeks, but I have a feeling MS will be adding to this list in the new year.

Just thought of a few things you could add.

Menu+View brings up the 360 guide while playing a BC title.

You can party chat with 360 users while using a BC title.

Xbox One features such as screenshots, clip recording, Snap and twitch streaming can be used with BC games.

I figure these would be good things to add as they are always asked about in the other thread.

Well I looked at where your link got their source from

http://www.finder.com.au/updated-xbox-titles

They say all future games released on the 360 will be BC on the X1.
That's not true is it?
They're just making things up.
Haven't read that link but it should say all future Games with Gold will be BC. Which should be added to the OP if it isn't already there

Maybe they got it mixed up with "all future GwG games will be BC."?

No they said all future GWG will be BC and all future 360 releases will be BC.

All future games released on the Xbox 360, and any games provided for the Xbox 360 for free through the Gold Live service, will all be backwards compatible by default, too. It's pretty tidy, and you can find our pick of the top 10 here!
Microsoft has informed us as of Gamescom “all future Xbox 360 Games with Gold titles will be playable on Xbox One,” and it’s believed that upcoming games available for Xbox 360, will also be backwards compatible out of the box.
They've got Kinect games, Guitar Hero, Disney Infinity, Lego Dimensions and Skylanders on their list.

Oh well it being believed doesn't necessarily mean it will be. But I have been mildly curious if they do make cross gen games BC.

Edit: As far as kinect games being BC, Microsoft already stated they wouldn't be. Only the "Better with Kinect" games would be.

That site probably just misinterpreted the announcement.

I guess it could be true, but does it even matter? I want BC for games I can't get otherwise on the XB1. I could care less about BC for the games I can.

Are you sure? I mean if you already own it, then yes, but I don't think you'll be able to play it on Tuesday if you're relying on the licenses that you'll be getting for playing Gears Ultimate.
Good point. I forgot the Gears games will be digital. So I rescind my previous comment, but it shouldn't be to hard for them to just give digital access to Gears 1 on launch day since it's already working.

This is cool, very useful thread. I've got an Xbox One coming in next week so I'll have to try BC out. Is it hard to get into the preview program or can I just sign up on a website somewhere/on the console itself?
