The Best GTA Game is Getting Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

More Rockstar games are joining the Xbox One backwards compatibility library.

Three more Rockstar Games will become Xbox One backward compatible starting on June 7. They are Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Midnight Club: Los Angeles, and Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis.

Rockstar clarified that both versions of GTA: San Andreas—the original Xbox and Xbox 360 versions—will be backwards compatible. Likewise, both Midnight Club: LA and Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Edition will also be available on Xbox One.

Midnight Club: LA

These games join Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Bully: Scholarship Edition as part of the Xbox One's growing library of backwards compatible Rockstar games.

The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility library is quickly becoming one of the Xbox One's best features, and a really smart way to expands the Xbox One's library. Even if we also really want new games and IPs. Still, pretty soon it looks like you can have a full digital library of Rockstar classics, especially now that Table Tennis will be backwards compatible.
