Microsoft has dropped a huge megaton during their E3 2015 conference and have announced that your Xbox 360 games will be playable on the Xbox One console. The games will run better too and you can take advantage of Xbox One features such as snap and the ability to take screenshots and record videos.

It’s not as simple as putting the disc in and playing the games though. The games that are playable are subject to publisher approval and if the games are approved you can simply download them from Xbox Live.

The games will be playable from the disc and you can download them as well. Either way this is a massive announcement that puts Sony on the backfoot.

There will be no need to buy the games again. You just need to own the disc.
