Chatting with fans on Twitter, Phil Spencer, head of the Xbox division at Microsoft, has revealed that he would like to have all Xbox 360 games compatible with Xbox One. Backwards compatibility is a popular feature of the Xbox One owners.

Therefore, Microsoft has increased the catalog with high demand titles like Red Dead Redemption or Call of Duty: Black Ops. Now, the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, shared on Twitter that they would like to have “all” games, and that this will have to work with distributors of third-party titles.

This statement came following questions from fans who want to see Call of Duty: Black Ops II, as part of backwards compatible games. This is the title that now has more feedback requests on the site of Xbox, with 193,000 votes.

Recently, Microsoft added more titles to this program, such as Jurassic Park, Battlestations: Midway, Dragon’s Lair and Tour de France 2011.

  • there is a reason people arnt upgradeing to a xbox one.its not much better then the pc terms its more like a difference between a gtx 970 and a gtx 970 ti and with the new console coming out next year why bother.this is why we dont need mid gen upgrades.usually by the 4th or 5th year people will make the switch to the new console imo.

  • They are all waiting for XB1X, that’s why. Watch how may gamers jump from XBox 360 to XB1X this fall.
