Yesterday, Microsoft announced that to celebrate the milestone of 300 games backward compatibility on Xbox One, they will give away the title of Xbox 360’s Lost Odyssey to all users.
To make a bit of memory, remember that Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon, 2 exclusive Xbox 360 RPGs, reached the autumn to backward compatibility program. Now, a few weeks later, the titles are now available on the Xbox Store in digital format.
Previously, only the owners of the physical versions had access to these titles due to its multi-features. However, the novelty is that those who do not have a copy may get them in digital format.
So, Lost Odyssey will be free until December 31 for all Xbox gamers, whether you have membership of Gold or Silver, or if you’re using Xbox 360 or Xbox One. For its part, Blue Dragon is available for $19.99 USD.

This is a big step for the acquisition of multi-titles digitally, because until now the only way to have them is if you own digital versions. It could also mean that in the future Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 will no longer be exclusive to EA Access, and will be available to the public.
Recently, Microsoft announced that the complete series of BioShock is now available on Xbox One through backward compatibility. The company also announced that more than 300 Xbox 360 games can be played on Xbox One.
