Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Super Sale Coming 16 May

Backwards compatibility has proven to be a popular feature for Xbox One, and whether you've been using it already or or not, next week should be a good time to stock up on supported Xbox 360 games.

Microsoft and Larry Hryb (aka @majornelson) has recently announced via Twitter that the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Super Sale will kick off on 16 May with more than 275 game titles being offered at a flat 75 percent off on the original price. Some of the noteworthy titles making this list include Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Red Dead Redemption, Skate 3 and GTA 4.

Although the discount deal for the Xbox One backwards compatible games has been confirmed, there is still no word on the official price list. Nevertheless, avid Xbox gamers can now replay some of the older Xbox 360 games on the current-gen console, thanks to the backwards compatibility feature being offered on Xbox One.

Interested users may go ahead and check out the complete list of Xbox 360 backwards compatible games for Xbox One on Microsoft Xbox official site.

While we're pumped for Skate 3 and Black Ops II in particular with over 275 games on offer it's obvious that there are many more exciting classics that weren't mentioned specifically. While we still have more than a few games that haven't been updated for Xbox One compatibility, most of the can't-miss titles are there. So what else are we expecting and hoping to be discounted? Here's a short list of the games we expect to show up dirt cheap:
 - Assassin's Creed
 - Assassin's Creed 2
 - Halo: Reach
 - Gears of War 3
 - Fable 2
 - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
 - BioShock
