This month, Microsoft has been slow on releasing the next titles for the Xbox One backwards compatibility lineup. Despite that, at least three of their latest releases received an update on August 11, mainly Dirt 3, Dirt Showdown and Grid 2. As you?ve noticed, the backwards compatibility racing games are the ones that received the update.
According to reports, the updates received by these Xbox One backwards compatibility games have something to do with their programming. Like in any other racing titles, players can only do so much where controls are concerned, and for games which have been extensively available for years, the only way you can update them is through their respective programming.
Meanwhile, if you aren?t updated on the latest Xbox One backwards compatibility list, some of the recent titles that were included are ?Red Dead Redemption,? ?Fallout New Vegas,? ?Fallout 3,? ?Call of Duty: Black Ops,? ?Halo Reach,? ?Left for Dead? and ?Halo Wars.? Currently, there are over 200 titles in the Xbox One backwards compatibility list, and the recent and one of the biggest games is ?Red Dead Redemption.?
This month also paved the way for the inclusion in the list of ?Shank 2,? ?Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon,? ?New Rally X,? ?Mr. Driller Online? and ?NIN2-Jump.? Unfortunately, the much awaited Skate 3 has not made any appearance in the Xbox One backwards compatibility lineup. Recently, Xbox head Phil Spencer subtly confirmed the arrival instead of ?Blue Dragon? in the backwards compatibility list.
The success of the Microsoft feature has been one of the reasons why the Xbox One console beat the PS4 in console sales this July. For months, it has been the PS4 which dominated the console war. Fortunately for Microsoft, the company?s effort to include some of the best titles in the Xbox One backwards compatibility list company resulted in good sales, which is reflected in the company?s latest sales report.
