Latest Xbox One Backwards Compatibility update is NOT what fans wanted – Express.co.uk

The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility games list has lost one of its titles.

In an update that nobody wanted, Xbox Live Arcade release Poker Smash is no longer playable on Xbox One.

Fans can still play the game on Xbox 360, where Achievements and saves will be transferred over.

After removing the game last week, Microsoft has told fans how to claim refunds and pick up a free copy of Hexic 2.

In a Microsoft FAQ, the company said: “Any purchases made on Xbox One, or since the game was made available on Xbox One on March 16, 2017, will be automatically refunded to the payment instrument you used to make them.

“Additionally, you will also receive a copy of Hexic 2, which is playable on Xbox One via backward compatibility, as an appreciation of your continued support of Xbox gaming.”

According to Microsoft, codes for Hexic 2 will be sent via Message Center to the same account registered with Poker Smash.

In terms of timings, Microsoft will send codes within ten days of sending messages to fans.

“You will receive a second message shortly after the first message is received, with a code for Hexic 2,” the post continues.

“If you have not received your second message within 10 days of receiving the first message, contact Xbox Support for further assistance.”

The news comes after Microsoft announced plans to make Original Xbox games Backwards Compatible on Xbox One.

Fans will be able to insert original game discs, and are likely to be able to purchase titles via the in-game store.

The only downside is that the Original Xbox games list won’t be as extensive as Xbox 360.

As an added bonus, one accessory manufacturer is remaking the classic Xbox Duke controller.
