Final wave of Xbox backwards compatible titles goes out on a high

To date Microsoft has done some amazing stuff when it comes to the support of backwards compatible games on the Xbox One. They’ve created amazing support for people who cherish older games, like yours truly. They have now announced that the following set of backwards compatible games will be the final wave on the Xbox One.

Why is that? Well, they’re moving their focus over to their next generation console. They want to ensure that thousands of games will be compatible on the next console too. There is simply no one else in the business that takes backwards compatibility as serious as Microsoft in the modern age.
