So how do you even get access to backwards compatible games? I'm looking at the store on Xbox One and all it says is "Bundle only".

Go to your My Games and App, scroll to the right on Games and it should pop up on Ready to Install.

Is it safe to assume I need to hook up the 360 and sign in/get on the game for it to work, or can I just pop a Reach disc in the One? Because it's not there.

 

Haven't dealt with backwards comp before this, so sorry for the basic questions.

It'll pop up if you own it or put the disc in the X1. No need to turn on the 360.

Also, it takes a while longer for the disc version to show up

So awesome it just showed up as ready to install. Installing now and it's moving very slow. I'm guessing the sever that holds that game is getting hammered.

With the convenient full file browser and file sharing system that Halo 5 doesn't have you can easily look up a file by tags, author, or popularity; for MLG game modes, you can just look up the files of the gamertag called "MLG Gametypes" using the File Share search feature under new custom search. It contains the last gametypes MLG used.

Thanks! Damn, what an amazing feature a fully functional file browsing system is! Imagine, since this game was made in like 2010, what future Halo titles will do to expand on this! Oh wait...
