Rockstar Games have announced that of trio of classic games, including Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, are coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility.
Three Rockstar Games games are coming to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility programme from June 7, 2018
First up is the classic 2005 open world action game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Both the original Xbox and Xbox 360 versions will be compatible with Xbox One, although saves from the OG Xbox version can not be transferred. Owners of that version will get access to the technically superior Xbox 360 edition, however.
Also coming over is muscle car racer, Midnight Club: Los Angeles. Both the original release, and the expanded Complete Edition are compatible. The final game is the surprisingly deep – and enjoyable – table tennis sim, Rockstar Tennis.
If you own the digital versions of these titles, they will automatically appear in the ‘Ready to Install’ panel on the Xbox One dashboard from June 7, 2018. If you still have the physical edition, just pop in the game disc to kick off a download.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
