Backwards compatibility support is coming to the Xbox One, it has been revealed.

Speaking during their E3 2015 press conference, Microsoft announced that, for no additional charge, gamers would be able to play select Xbox 360 games on their Xbox One starting in the autumn.

The feature is currently available to members of the Xbox One Preview Program.

Posting on Xbox Wire, Microsoft said: “Not only is backward compatibility one of the most-requested fan features, it’s also part of our vision to provide the biggest and best games catalogue without limits, so you can get more out of the investment you’ve made in your game collection, and your games library is not limited to just one device.”

The post continued: “We will continue to release Xbox 360 titles on a regular basis and build a substantial catalog over time. With the best of yesterday and today together in one place, this will truly be the biggest lineup in Xbox history.”
