An update to the Xbox One Update Preview has just come through the channel that includes a notice about changes to the recently introduced backward compatibility feature. Though no details were given, it was recommended that a select number of games in the preview be reinstalled else they may become unplayable.
The games impacted are:
- Viva Piñata
- Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise
- Perfect Dark
- Perfect Dark Zero
- Kameo: Elements of Power
- Jetpac Refuelled
These games are also part of the upcoming Rare Replay compilation so I’m making the assumption that it’s either:
- Improvements in emulation due to having a team building a title like this, or
- Tweaks to allow both a BC and a Rare Replay version of the same game to coexist.
Hopefully we will also see a few more games appear here soon as it seems like Xbox gamers are pretty keen to find out what else works.
