Xbox One owners will eventually be able to buy 360 games on the actual console


Right now it's web-only

I know it sounds weird, but bear with me.

Right now, the Xbox One backward compatibility feature has worked out to the point where most folks can merely download their existing library on their current console with little fuss. But the game count is getting bigger each month, and at some point, having to locate new titles by way of the web marketplace isn't going to cut it.

Microsoft has picked up on this, and announced a new initiative for the Xbox One preview program -- soon, members will be able to simply find them on the new storefront. That's it! It's a simple little addition, but a welcome one.
