Just this Tuesday, Microsoft announced the return of its Backward Compatible Sale! The sale itself offers deals on Xbox and Xbox 360 games that can be played on the Xbox One. It’s also the company’s biggest sale on backward-compatible games yet, with over 200 titles going for as much as 75% off!

What’s on sale?

Here are some of the popular titles on sale that you might recognise, along with their prices after discount:

  • Catherine – $9.99
  • Street Fighter 4 – $9.99
  • Assassin’s Creed – $7.99
  • Grand Theft Auto 4 – $6.99
  • Mass Effect 2 – $5.99
  • BioShock – $7.99
  • Borderlands 2 – $7.99
  • Dragon Age: Origins – $3.74
  • Red Dead Redemption – $9.89
  • Alice: Madness Returns – $4.99
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – $14.99

These aren’t even all the games that are on sale! Note that these prices are in USD, though. If you’re Singaporean, the prices of these games will likely be slightly more expensive. Despite that, the prices for all these games are pretty much a steal.

You have to click each title individually to see its price, unfortunately.

It’s great that Xbox has a backward compatibility program. After all, it allows such old and classic games to still be playable on the Xbox One. This gives gamers access to a library of at least 500 games, and the freedom to revisit their favourite classic games without having to “upgrade” their consoles.

Plus, some games even get the XBox One X Enhanced treatment! This optimises the game for a better gaming experience on the Xbox One. In fact, many of the games that are discounted as a part of this backward compatible sale are part of this XBox One X enhanced program!

How long will the sale run for?

The Backward Compatible Sale will be on until May 27. In other words, you have about 4 days left to snag your old favourite Xbox games, or catch up on classics you might have missed, at a deeply discounted price. Don’t miss this chance!
