#XboxOne #Xbox360Xbox One backwards compatibility turns 1, adds Skate 3 : The Xbox One’s backwards compatibility feature turns a year old today, and Microsoft is celebrating the occasion by adding the much-requested Skate 3 to the list of compatible Xbox 360 titles.

Skate 3 has followed a busy couple of weeks that have brought other big titles like Mass Effect 2 and 3, along with Blue Dragon to the program. Skate 3 is currently available at the Xbox Marketplace for $12, or $10 for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Here’s a little about the game for those unfamiliar:

The SKATE™ franchise is back and rolling into new territory as SKATE™ 3 heads to the brand new city of Port Carverton. Delivering a unique co-op skateboarding experience, build your own customized skate team and change the face of the city by taking on unique team challenges, competing against rival crews online, and shredding the streets of an all-new skaters’ paradise.

Following the addition of Skate 3, Microsoft says that there are now more than 280 Xbox 360 titles that are backwards compatible with the Xbox One. That’s up from 100 when the feature launched a year ago.

That’s a pretty impressive increase, and the pace of new additions show no signs of slowing down, with multiple Xbox 360 games being added every week. Source: windowscentral
