Backwards compatibility question

I bought an Xbox one as soon as it came out and at the time there were no plans for backward compatibility.  I used to have all of the gears of war games and all of the mass effect games but when I try to download them they are not free.  I guess I don't understand how this works only the people who held onto their xbox 360 or waited to buy an xbox one get to have a game they already owned free?  Or am I missing something?

If you owned the digital download version of the games u had for the xbox360 you should be able to download them to your xbox one for free and also if they're on the backwards compatibilty list..If you only had these games on disc then unfortunately you will physically need the xbox360 disc for these games to work via backwards compatibilty..Hope I've explained myself well enough for you..



yes thanks.
