360 games on Xbox One

While you've been able to play some 306 games on your Xbox One, you haven't been able to play them all.

Well, that's all changing for you console fans, as Microsoft representatives have announced that the next-gen console is going support a number of types of Xbox 360 titles, which basically means you'll have greater options when it comes to playing old games you've bought.

So don't be taking your old video games down to Game to trade them in just yet!

"I can confirm that the BC team has done work to support multi disc scenarios. Be sure to thank the BC engineers," wrote Microsoft's Larry Hyrb, who is the director of programming for Xbox Live, in a recent Reddit thread.

Now, there's no more details than those given above, but seeing as Microsoft has just added Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut to their backward compatibility list, it looks like Xbox fans will be getting access to a lot of their old games!

"Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut was the first multi-disc [backward compatible] title added to the program. We know fans were asking for this feature and our engineers worked hard developing a solution to enable it so we could further expand the titles included in Xbox One Backward Compatibility," read a statement from Microsoft.

"We're continuing to listen to our fans on Xbox Feedback and work with our publishing partners to grow [our] library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles and will work to include more multi-disc games."

This is a change from the previous stance from Microsoft, who said that backward multi-disc compatibility wasn't possible.
