There won't be anymore Xbox One backward compatibility updates for 2017


We'll just have to make due with 140+ from this year

2017 has been an incredibly fruitful year for Xbox One backward compatibility.

To say that we've been spoiled would be an understatement, especially considering you don't even need to rebuy any of your old games.
