This is a big one.
Ever since Xbox One backward compatibility was announced, gamers have been asking for a few high-profile games. While the majority of requests revolve around the Call of Duty franchise, Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 HD has been another hot title. Today, Xbox Live’s Director of Programming, Larry Hryb, announced that Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 HD was backward compatible.
Backward compatibility opens Xbox One to a huge variety of games, spanning three generations of Microsoft’s consoles. Despite hardware differences, it remains an outstanding feature, allowing a select library of older games to be played on Xbox One. While the majority of them are Xbox 360 titles, there are also some original Xbox games in there.
