It appears, however still just rumor, that Xbox 360 games Halo 3: ODST and SSX are coming to Xbox One by way of backwards compatibility. Reddit user joecamnet spotted Amazon listings for both games, with ODST said to come out on June 7 and SSX on June 14.

In the case of ODST, it’s being called the “Campaign Edition,” since it reportedly includes the story mode and Firefight, but the online multiplayer will not be a part of the game as the original release did.

As you can see, the box art for both games clearly says, “Plays on Xbox One” (via ODST and SSX are not among the newest five Xbox 360 games confirmed for the backwards compatibility program but not released yet. Those are excitingly Skate 3, BioShock, BioShock 2, BioShock Infinite, and Call of Duty: Black Ops.

The rumored mid-June launch timing for ODST and SSX is also curious, considering that’s around the time of E3. Perhaps there will be a connection? Would you like to see ODST and SSX added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility lineup? What other games are you waiting for? Let us know in the comments below.
