Where's my backward compatible Xbox game?

Games you own digitally appear in your Xbox One games list under Ready to install. If you're not seeing a backward compatible game you've played on a previous Xbox console, it might be for any of these reasons:

  • The game isn’t yet playable on Xbox One
  • You own the game on disc rather than owning it digitally
  • You were playing on someone else's Xbox
  • You were playing a game that was installed by someone else or preinstalled on your Xbox

To play a supported backward compatible game that you own on disc, insert the disc into your Xbox One.

Note This does not apply to the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, which doesn’t include an optical disc drive.

To see if games you own are backward compatible, sign in at My games, then select Xbox 360. If a game shows as being Backward Compatible, you can play it on Xbox One.

To see the full list of backward compatible games, go to Backward Compatible Game Library.
