Here’s the full list (updated Jan 2022) of every game available in the Xbox Backward Compatibility programme.

Video game preservation is a thorny issue. The move from physical media and standalone games to digital downloads and online experiences has shifted the onus from issues for preservationists (like disc rot and missing media) to systemic access issues for the community as a whole (like entire games disappearing when servers go offline).

It used to be that, as long as you keep the hardware in reasonable condition, you could play a retro game. That doesn’t always hold true anymore.

While most other publishers seem keen to do their back catalogue dirty in some form or another – Square Enix prefers to sell you expensive, “improved” versions that are way worse than the originals; Nintendo likes to make things artificially scarce while also blocking emulation at every turn; PlayStation might put an odd game on PlayStation Now if you’re lucky; and EA just shuts all its studios down – Xbox is generally unique in its commitment to making old video games easier to play through its Xbox Backward Compatibility programme.

If you own a physical version of an old game, chances are, you can play it on a modern Xbox console. (Lack of disc drive in the Xbox One S or Xbox Series S notwithstanding.) If you own a game on your Xbox account, you can probably play that, too.

And if you don’t own an old game? You might still be able to get hold of it via the Xbox Store, or possibly even included in your Xbox Game Pass subscription.

Games marked with an asterisk “may not be available in all regions and/or may not be available for purchase digitally in the Xbox Store”, but “previous owners of the disc/digital versions of these titles should still be able to play them on an Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S console”, according to Microsoft.

At nearly 700 games, that’s quite the list, isn’t it? And, allegedly, that’s the final list. With the addition of the last 70 games at the end of 2021, Microsoft announced that it wouldn’t be bringing any further games into the Xbox Backward Compatibility programme.

“While we continue to stay focused on preserving and enhancing the art form of games,” said Peggy Lo, compatibility program lead at Xbox, “we have reached the limit of our ability to bring new games to the catalog from the past due to licensing, legal and technical constraints. Thank you for being part of this journey with us.”

So it’s done, then. It’s finished. The Xbox Backward Compatibility list is complete. (But we’ll keep an eye out for any last-minute stragglers and update this list if anything further gets added. You know. Just in case.)
