Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker HD is now backward compatible on Xbox One

Also, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

At this point the Xbox One’s backward compatibility feature has defied expectations. Several games that boast a “remaster” on current generation systems already have Xbox One enhanced compatible ports, leading me to instantly downloading some old favorites in my library instead of re-buying them.

That trend continues this week, as Microsoft just approved Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker HD Edition and Axel & Pixel on the Xbox One. If you haven’t played Peace Walker yet now is a good time to do so, especially coming off of the disappointing and mind-bendingly non-canon Survive.

There is a catch though — you can’t buy Axel & Pixel if you don’t already own the game on Xbox 360 — likely due to a 2K Play licensing issue. The others are good though, and follow up the recent releases of Hitman: Blood Money and LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars.
