As promised back at E3, backwards compatibility is finally making its way to the Xbox One. Yesterday, Microsoft officially introduced the first 104 Xbox 360 games that will be playable on the tech giant’s latest console. If you digitally purchased any of the games on your 360, you’ll have the ability to download the game right to your Xbox One’s hard drive. On the other hand, if you have a physical copy of the game, you can simply insert the DVD into the One and the console will download a patch — basically emulation software — that will make the game playable on your newer Xbox.

Look for backwards compatibility to hit the Xbox One with a software update this Thursday, November 12. A full list of the initial 104 offerings appears below.
