Xbox One Backward Compatibility works with disc-based and digital games.



Xbox One Backward Compatibility is easy to use
The digital tiles that you own and are part of the Back Compat game catalogue will automatically show up in the “Ready to Install” section on your Xbox One. For disc-based games that are a part of the Back Compat game catalogue, insert the disc and the console will begin downloading the game to your hard drive. After the game has downloaded to your hard drive, users will still need to keep the game disc in the drive to play.
