While the early life of the Xbox One backwards compatibility feature is starting off well. One of the things you will notice is that there are currently no games which shipped on multiple discs for Xbox 360 that are available for Xbox One backwards compatibility.
Due to the Xbox 360 using DVD’s, space was limited and a number of games in the consoles later life ended up releasing on multiple discs. Supporting the disc swap feature is another complexity that Microsoft has to overcome to allow the Xbox One to handle a game being ejected from the drive without returning to the dashboard.
The reveal that Microsoft was working on such a feature came through the Deus Ex Twitter account after announcing that Deus Ex: Human Revolution is available on the backwards compatibility list. This prompted questions regarding Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut and Deus Ex: Missing Link DLC both of which rely on the disc swap function to work. The Twitter account responded;
For those asking: Missing Link and DXHR Director’s Cut are currently not supported, but the Xbox team expect them to be early next year.

So this suggests that not only is Microsoft working on the feature, they aren’t that far away from figuring it out either.
For players that own Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Xbox 360 either on disc or digital download, they will have access to play their games without having to re-purchase the game. For those with the DLC or the Director’s Cut they will have to wait a little longer to play their version.
