One of the most requested additions to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility list, Red Dead Redemption is now available for download and play. Folks just need to own the game digitally and find someone already following the game. Don't worry, I know a guy.
From a screenshot showing Rockstar's Western available for download on an Xbox One posted at NeoGAF the news spread like wildfire, but don't expect the game to show up in search on your Xbox One. In order to access the Red Dead Redemption page on the Xbox One you have to find someone following the game. If you look up F4hey you should be able to go to my followed games and find it.
Once there you can download the game, as long as you own it digitally. If you don't own it digitally you'll see "Bundle Only" in the purchase options. You can grab the Xbox 360 version over at Xbox.com for $US29.99 ($42), which is what I just did.
And here we are.
If you own the game on disc, give it time. If the digital is working the disc should get a roll-out soon.
Looking through Twitter I am seeing folks reporting other games popping up the same way -- Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night -- but my "games I already own on other consoles" budget just got blown.
