I think we might be looking at a new trend here thanks to the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility feature that was announced at Microsoft’s E3 conference. Since it’s announcement, Bethesda has announced that Fallout 3 come with copies of Fallout 4, and Ubisoft confirmed that Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2 will also come with copies of Rainbow Six Siege.
Following this new trend is Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, a current-gen remake of the first Gears of War game. The new team behind the Gears franchise, The Coalition, have announced today that people who purchase Gears of War: Ultimate will be able to play the 360 version of all 4 Gears games, which include Gears 1, 2, 3, and Judgement. There is a catch though. This is a limited time deal, and refers to anyone purchasing Gears of War Ultimate Edition between it’s launch date of August 25th and December 31st 2015.
The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility rocked E3 when it was announced, especially with the inclusion of working with both disk and digital versions of the games, as well as the use of Xbox One features such as DVR, screenshots, and Snap.
