The house that CoD built
A lot of Call of Duty titles remain the most-requested games for Xbox One backward compatibility, but that list may soon change. Last week, Call of Duty 3 was given functionality and this week, Call of Duty: World at War has been added.
In addition to more CoD, E4: Every Extend Extra Extreme, Funtown Mahjong, and Encleverment Experiment will be coming to the backward compatibility service, bringing the games to over 260! Woooo….though that is pretty awesome.
The more interesting tidbit is that the Call of Duty titles seem to have improved functionality. No new features are present, but the performance is smoother and any instances of screen tearing have disappeared. Playing Call of Duty 3 on the Xbox One is the best way to play it; now there just needs to be an actual reason to play it.
I’m still holding out hope that Activision can find some way to make DJ Hero work. I would run out and get an Xbox One if I could have Daft Punk digitized onto Microsoft’s new box.
