Microsoft wants to know which Xbox 360 games you’d like to see on Xbox One via backwards-compatibility.

Microsoft is working to make Xbox 360 games run on Xbox One, but it can’t just flip a switch and make them all work, so it’s bringing them across in batches.

Hopefully one day we’ll see the majority of Xbox 360 games brought over, but in the meantime Microsoft wants to know which games it should focus on, and has opened up a handy voting portal to aid its decision-making process.

Head on over to the Xbox User Voice portal to have your say – it’s an easy matter of signing in, then clicking the vote button. If your game isn’t on the list, just search for it.

Note that these votes don’t guarantee which games we’ll get in the next batch of compatibility updates, because third-party publishers need to give permission for their product’s inclusion in the scheme. That might not happen if a remaster is on the cards, or if the rights to a product have been lost, for example.

At time of writing Red Dead Redemption is at the top of the list, which gets my vote, too.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
