Update 3: Major Nelson has replied to a reddit thread saying: “Microsoft tests all Xbox 360 games with our emulator to ensure a quality experience across a breadth of titles. Due to an error, some of the games currently in test were accidentally made available. We have since removed access to those games, and apologize for any confusion this may have caused. We will have more information on upcoming releases soon.” – we hope it will be back properly in the Xbox backwards catalogue soon enough
Update 2: According to Microsoft’s official Xbox Support team (via GTAOnlineNews), Red Dead Redemption will be fully playable again on Xbox One later today. When asked about the title being removed from the program, an Xbox Support agent told GTAOnlineNews that they were fully aware of the error and that it’s currently being worked on by their engineers.
We know this isn’t Grand Theft Auto related, but we love the Red Dead Series just as much + it’s from Rockstar Games and we love everything R* ! Red Dead Redemption, one of the most popular games of the last generation, it seems its been added to the Backwards Compatibility list on Xbox One – well kinda
At the moment the game has not been released officially on the Xbox Live Store and you won’t be able to download it by inserting a disc just yet, but you can play it earlier thanks to a little trick.
To access Red Dead Redemption on Xbox One earlier, first of all, you need to own the digital version on Xbox 360 or buy the X360 version from Xbox.com using your Xbox One account. Then you need to find the Xbox Live user “RockoHoward”, view his full profile and navigate to his “Following” list.
From there, filter it to show “Games” only, and you’ll be able to find Red Dead Redemption on the list. View the game in the store and if you own it digitally, you will be able to install it directly from the Xbox Store.
If you don’t have it digitally, the game will just say “Bundle Only” and you won’t be able to download it
