Xbox gamers, rejoice! The Xbox One Backward Compatibility program is going to allow users to play all three generations of Xbox games on a single console. Of course, you'll need to own an Xbox One in order to snag this amazing deal, but, hey! Think of the benefit! When has a console ever been compatible with this many games from year's past — we can't think of a single example, y'all.
