Xbox One backwards compatibility dated for November

Gotta get back in time.

Xbox One will finally receive its long-awaited backwards compatibility update on 12th November for all console owners.

Microsoft community manager Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb made the announcement on Twitter.

This will add some, but not all Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One's library. Users can vote on the rest, and here's what's been popular so far.

This will also be the debut of the new Xbox One experience, a UI overhaul that will match the look of the Windows 10 Xbox App. It will include Cortana, Microsoft's Halo-inspired answer to Siri.

Yesterday it was announced that Criterion's racing classic Burnout Paradise would make the cut of backwards compatible titles. Other oldies being added include Mass Effect, Viva Piñata and BattleBlock Theater.
