Six backwards-compatible Xbox 360 games get huge discount

In November, the Xbox One will receive an update adding a backwards compatibility feature to the console. It will allow many – but not all – Xbox 360 games to play on an Xbox One, and some of those titles just went on sale.

At finder.com.au we have been closely following the backwards compatibility story for Xbox One. We have compiled the world’s most up-to-date list of titles scheduled to be included when the feature launches in November, and as of this writing, that list is already at 130 games.

For many gamers, this feature will offer a chance to dust some key titles off their pile of shame and give them a new lease on life. However, for the thrifty consumer, there is also a chance to enjoy some fantastic experiences for very little money.

Available until August 24, Xbox Gold subscribers have access to some substantial discounts on a host of Xbox 360 titles through Xbox Live. We’ve cross-checked these titles with our list of backwards compatible games and located six gems you can purchase now for 75% off, and that we anticipate you will be able to play on your Xbox One when the update drops in November.
