This new labeling for backward compatible Xbox 360 games is helpful

While it doesn't appear to be widespread, I hope this approach to labeling Xbox 360 games that are playable on Xbox One through backward compatibility catches on. NeoGAF user Xyrmellon snapped these photos at Walmart and wondered if anyone else had run into them yet. I sure haven't!

The box on the right is a cleaner look than the typical Platinum Hits design, that's for sure.

Yeah, you could just find out if a game is supported on Xbox One with a quick Google search, but if you're shopping in-store, having that noted front and center would make browsing that much easier.

wait, they are still selling 360 games?

Most of my stores up here of major chains have stopped selling 360 and PS3 games months ago.

Prefer the one on the left. The one on the right is misleading because it might make the buyer think it has Xbone assets and abilities.

Also, not the first time something like this has been done:

Yeah but no one owned Sega consoles in the 90s.

Wrong there were 3 of us who owned a Master System and rumor has it that more than 10 people owned a Genesis.
