Criterion Games has announced on Twitter that they’re working with Microsoft to bring their classic racer, Burnout Paradise, to Xbox One as part of the console’s backwards compatibility. “They approve the game, we run it through a test pass, obviously, to make sure everything’s fine, then we have to wrap it up as an Xbox One game so the Xbox One knows you’re actually running a game”.
Major Nelson briefed more over what the update will consist of by stating: “This update prepares for game streaming to Windows 10 and our upcoming Backward Compatibility feature launching in a few months”. Aside from the massive discount, more deals will be made available for Xbox Gold Live members, with select titles to be offered with an additional 10 percent off, translating to added discounts.
The streaming feature will go public with the release of Window 10 on July 29.
Microsoft won’t be able to get every Xbox 360 game available onto the Xbox One’s backward compatibility list. So here we are, talking about how a seven year old game might be playable on the Xbox One sometime in the near future.
