Good news for fans of the original Black Ops game who are also Xbox One owners. The original Call of Duty Black Ops game, originally released in 2010 for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Nintendo DS and Windows is now part of Microsoft’s Backwards compatibility program for the Xbox One. So if you have the disc version lying around still, or can get hold of it easily you will now be able to play it on your Xbox One console.
Alternatively the digital edition is also playable via the Xbox One. Normally the digital edition is priced at £44.99 – quite steep for an older 360 game but, it is currently on offer for those with Xbox Live Gold memberships. Reduced down to just £11.24 if you’re a fan, this is almost a too good of a price to miss out on, as many places selling the disc based version are selling it for at least £15. In fact Amazon has seen a 13,400% increase in sales following the announcement that it was now part of the Microsoft Backwards compatibly program, which has put it at the number 2 spot for hourly sales, with Uncharted 4: A Thief’s end in the top spot and Doom in 3rd.
