Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Question.

Hello Xbox Community, I have a question. I heard all about the backwards compatibility and since that I have been wondering, when I download a game via disc will I have to insert my disc everytime for it to launch?

Hi Zinqeeh,

I'm assuming you will have to insert your disc everytime you want to play the said game, even though you may have installed the game on the console. Otherwise, it will just be a loophole, which can be easily exploited by sharing that disc with friends, or perhaps returning it back to the store for a refund. Hence I doubt Microsoft will allow such exploitation to happen.


I can confirm you need to have your disc in the console in order to play backwards compatible games that you did not purchase digitally
