If you’re an Xbox gamer, you have heard about or even used the backward compatibility program. It basically allows selected games on the Xbox 360 and the original Xbox to be played on newer hardware. The Microsoft Store was also updated to make purchasing backward-compatible, supported titles easier. That service will no longer be added too as we know.

The titles available are varied, and it’s allowed the return of some popular classic titles. When Quantum Break launched, preorders came with Alan Wake, which has since been remastered. We’ve seen Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas arrive; these are just a couple of the many games available. However, a service alert from Xbox adds some interesting news that will affect Xbox 360 games on the program.

How This Xbox 360 Update Has An Effect On Backwards Compatibility

Microsoft sent out an email service update about upcoming changes to the Xbox 360 store in certain locations. The email states:

Starting 7‌ F‌ebru‌ary ‌2023, a limited set of games, add-ons and in-game content will no longer be purchasable in selected markets via the Xbox 360 Store. You will still be able to play discs or previously downloaded games on your Xbox 360. For more information, visit Xbox Support.

The full information of the alert can be found here and Wario64 posted the list. Just in case you can’t view the information, here’s the list in full:
