As someone who is in the Xbox One Preview program I grow excited with each update that comes out way. Well this upcoming update is going to be big and just reading the list provided below makes me wish for the update now. Who can blame me? Funny to find out as I write this that Xbox Preview program members are getting the update TODAY.
My favorite feature of this is the picture below, which is what EVERYONE has been asking for for quite sometime. We now have the ability to purchase Xbox 360 games that have been enabled for backward compatibility with Xbox One in the Xbox One game store. This feature is going to be very useful. A separate section of the Xbox One still will display, showing Xbox 360 games that are able to be run on Xbox One.While this news is a summary of the update information. We’ve provided pictures of each of these features below in a Gallery. Well time to boot up my Xbox One and install the update.
