50% of Xbox One owners have used backwards compatibility

Xbox 360 titles usually in Microsoft's daily ranking of most played games

Microsoft execs have disputed claims that backwards compatibility is barely used on its Xbox One console.

Ars Technica reported that Xbox Live user data shows Xbox One owners only spent 1.5% of their gaming time playing previous generation games between September 2016 and February 2017.

However, Xbox's chief marketing officer Mike Nichols has since taken to Twitter reporting much healthier stats.
