When Microsoft announced a while back that they were rolling out Backwards Compatibility for XBox 360 games to become playable on XBox One, I was pretty excited. That excitement dimmed a bit when I heard that the 360 disk would have to install to the XBox One, further eating up the already non-existant space on my hard drive. But, the fact that I will have to purchase an external drive is already a foregone conclusion, so whatever. My excitement was further dimmed when seeing the list of the first 100(+) XBox 360 games that were made backwards compatible. But still, there were enough to maintain my interest while further titles become available later.
My issue is that since November 12th, when the first 100+ titles were supposed to become available, I have only gotten 1 game out of 4 that I have tried to work. I tried Dungeon Siege III, Fallout 3, Fable II, and Mass Effect. Only Mass Effect triggered an install after putting the disk into my XBox One. When putting in the disks for Dungeon Siege III, Fallout 3, and Fable II, I received the message "This disk is not playable. For a list of playable games please go to xbox.com/backcompat"
Has anyone else had any issues? I know there are people who don't care about backwards compatibility, so please don't respond with opinion in that regard, since that is not the question I'm asking. I'm just asking for responses of successful or unsuccessful attempts.
