Microsoft announces the launch lineup for backwards compatibility on the Xbox One

As of November 12th, 2015, you will now be able to play up to 104 different Xbox 360 titles on your Xbox One.

The new backwards compatibility will be available with the NXOE (New Xbox One Experience) that rolls out on that same date. We’ve written a bit about NXOE in the past, but if you aren’t familiar with it, this is essentially Microsoft giving the Xbox One a new user interface that is built with Windows 10 and can work with other Windows 10 devices.

Through the Xbox One Windows 10 app, you now are able to see what your friends are doing online, manage your Xbox One from another device, and even stream and play games from your Xbox One on another device like a tablet, laptop, or desktop. If you want to use your Xbox One controller to play games on your computer, you will need an Xbox One wireless adapter, which Microsoft just released on October 20th.

Microsoft had originally said there would be 100 titles available at launch. The final list includes 104 titles, along with a list of some games that will be added soon. Below is the list of the games available through Xbox One backwards compatibility at the launch of NXOE:
