Red Dead Redemption And More Leak For Backwards Compatibility On Xbox One – UPDATED


Red Dead Redemption has been a long timed requested title for the Xbox One. Many people have waited for some word, with a sliver of hope, there would be some sort of news that we could load up the adventures of John Marston on Xbox One.

Today might be that day – there is one tiny little issue, though, as reported by Kotaku. To play Red Dead Redemption on Xbox One, you first off need a copy of the title that is digital, the second part required in getting back into the old west requires a friend that is already following the game.

If you want to try this out for yourself you can purchase Red Dead Redemption here, or you can wait until the disc based version is supported.

The same process can be followed for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night!



As we reported earlier the appearance of Red Dead Redemption, Castlevania, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on the weekend, turned out to be a mistake on Microsoft’s part.

Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb took to Twitter and Reddit to explain and apologize for the mixup.

The sudden appearance of one the most requested titles for backwards compatibility stirred up lots of excitement and maybe this is confirmation we’ll be seeing Read Dead and more sooner or later.
