It is not that long ago now that the Xbox One was on the verge of being written off by certain members of the tech press, and even the wider public. The last year has seen a massive turnaround in the fortunes of the console however, following a renewed focus on the needs of the gamer.
And it was this year, with the announcement of backwards compatibility with the Xbox 360, that this new reputation became concrete. Following this, according to Major Nelson, the deal is only going to get sweeter, with the announcement that Xbox 360 owners with Xbox Live Gold can get up to 10 free Xbox One games before the end of the calendar year. Starting right now, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition are available not only to Xbox One owners, but Xbox 360 owners as well, with more titles coming soon.
It was also announced that all future Xbox 360 Games with Gold titles will be backwards compatible, meaning that there is something in this for existing Xbox One users too, with Microsoft asking gamers to be prepared for “the greatest games lineup in Xbox history”.
