Battlefield 3 for Xbox 360 is now playable on Xbox One, as it was added to the backwards compatibility program. The Xbox One backwards compatibility program allows classic Xbox 360 games to become playable on the latest-generation console. More classic games are expected to be added to the growing list of backwards-compatible games.

One of the best things about modern technology is that is can do a lot of things old technology could not do. Game consoles are still the one of the most popular entertainment products that have a huge market. The Xbox One backwards compatibility is a godsend to console gamers.

While others may argue it is still better to get the new and updated games, the older games are still fun to play. There were games that were released in remastered editions. However, a remastered version for the new consoles are not guaranteed.

New Addition to Xbox One Backwards Compatibility List

Aside from Battlefield 3Daily Star revealed that another game in the franchise, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was also added to the list. This game was included in the list along with Dragon Age Origins, Strania, The Splatters, Scrap Metal, Ghostbusters, Mega Man 10, Mega Man 9, and Beat’n Groovy. Fans are expecting more games to be added in the list in the coming months.

According to Express UK, there are a lot of gamers looking forward to seeing Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 makes it into the list. In fact, Even Xbox Chief Phil Spencer really wants to see the game playable on the Xbox One. The game has already made it to the top list of most requested games. It also has over 200, 000 votes for it to be included in the list.

Spencer stated he wants to see the game make it on backwards compatibility. However, the game has to get approval. Right now it seems unclear whether or not the join will list. This is because there are no signs of Activision striking a deal with Xbox recently.

More Games

There are actually more than 300 games that are in the confirmed list of backwards-compatible games. Games like The Bioshock Trilogy, Mass Effect Trilogy, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and Red Dead Redemption were added. While players can already play the games on the console, there will reportedly be more games released in the coming week.
