Xbox One plays these Xbox 360 games with backwards compatibility

If Microsoft completes its efforts in full, you might not have need for your Xbox 360 console one day. As of November 12, the Xbox One is now backwards compatible with Xbox 360 games. Microsoft will not be making every game on the last-gen console available from the start, but more and 360 games will be playable as time goes on.

With that, here is every 360 game that is backwards compatible with the Xbox One so far. Don't forget that many of the games are coming free as bonuses with new Xbox One games, too - buying Fallout 4 will net you Fallout 3, Rainbow Six Siege gets you its two Vegas predecessors, and snapping up Rare Replay nets you, well, a fair chunk of the list. Also, the Games with Gold titles that come free to Xbox Live Gold members work with the backwards compatibility. So, you'd better make room because you'll have twice as many games to download each month.
