As per a new report published by Kotaku, they managed to get the names of famous Xbox 360 games which will be playable by the Xbox One owners due to Backward Compatibility, which was announced by Microsoft a few weeks ago.

Microsoft also made easier for Xbox One owners to vote for the Xbox 360 game which they would like to play on their Xbox One through online game request service. This is really a great service by Microsoft where current-gen Xbox can easily play both the games, i.e., Xbox 360 and Xbox One games on a single console.

From the request service, most of the famous previous gen titles like Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Red Dead Redemption, Skyrim and many more are leading but from the forum, there are too many games with many votes, but not every game voted on that forum will be made backward compatible, so one can only hope for the game they have voted and want to play. Also, there will be no cost charged for playing last gen games (if you have the DVD with yourself).

Below are the List of games with a chance that most of them will be playable with backward compatibility while few of them are confirmed.
