Xbox One Backward Compatibility
Xbox 360 video games that are Xbox One Backward Compatible might become region

Rumours have suggested Microsoft is working to remove the region lock on Xbox 360 games that are available for Xbox One Backward Compatible.

When Microsoft released Xbox One, it had removed region-wise lock following complaints about Xbox 360 not being so when PlayStation 3 was.

An Xbox Support personnel was quoted by Spanish site SoloXboxOne (via Attack of the Fanboy) as saying Microsoft has plans to remove the region lock from its Xbox 360 games.

"Sure thing. Though right now, Microsoft and Xbox are already in discussions about it because most of our customers do not have Xbox 360 consoles anymore but only Xbox One but still want to get 360 games for backwards compatible games," said the Support personnel.

"So we are currently planning to remove region lock so customers can freely get 360 games without having a console that make use of local credit. But there's no actual schedule yet for this plan. So we would like to recommend to our customers to look forward to this in the near future," he added.

These measure are yet to be taken by Microsoft and are only in the planning stage, and the players might have to wait for some time before it might become a reality.

Dark Souls to be added soon?

The original "Dark Souls" could be part of the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list very soon. But for that to happen, players will have to pre-order the upcoming video game "Dark Souls 3."

"For a limited time, purchase a digital pre-order of 'Dark Souls 3' on the Xbox One Store and get the original 'Dark Souls' playable on Xbox One. The code for 'Dark Souls' will be delivered to your Xbox message centre in 7-10 days. You can redeem the code on your Xbox One console or at," Australian Xbox Store announced.

This offer is likely to apply only for digital pre-orders of "Dark Souls 3".
