360 Backwards Compatibility Updated

Published On April 20, 2007 | By Console Monster | News

Microsoft have announced a number of Xbox “1” titles are now backwards compatible. The highlights of this update include support for Star Wars: Republic Commando, Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction, Panzer Dragoon Orta and Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

To get your favourite Xbox “1” games to work on your 360, just stick the disc into your 360 and you’ll be prompted to download the update. Don’t forget, Xbox games are upscaled, so they’ll look better played on your 360. You can also play online games against Xbox 360 players and Xbox “1” players.

The list of new and updated BC games is below. You can see the entire list here.
