Considering a recent post on its official Twitter feed, it appears that Criterion Games is trying to bring one of the best arcade driving games of all time to a modern console near you.

“Yes, we ARE talking to Microsoft about making Xbox 360 Burnout Paradise available on Xbox One via backwards compatibility,” states the tweet. “More news soon!”

Of course, the users gaming on modern platforms have a handful of drivers to keep them busy, including games from the Forza series, Driveclub and Need for Speed: Rivals, though it isn’t like genre fans are exactly drowning in options when it comes to racing for the virtual finish line.

At the same time, Burnout Paradise is a fantastic racer from yesteryear's which is full of content, featuring a couple of major expansions that added an entire extra island to cruise around, motorcycles and etc.

Burnout Paradise boasted a massive map with various types of landscapes and a ridiculous number or routes, a huge roster of cars and events, as well as all sorts of extra distractions like billboards to crash through and fences to wreck. After that, there was the amazing online mode, which players could drop in an out of seamlessly in order to goof off or compete with friends and strangers alike.

Considering the aforementioned, if I had to come up with a list of games from the Xbox 360-era that I’d like to see added to the backwards compatibility roster on the Xbox One, Burnout Paradise would be right up there with the likes of Red Dead Redemption, Halo 3 and the Mass Effect trilogy.

If you’ve missed out on all of the backwards compatibility discussion so far, during the latest E3 press conference, Microsoft reported that the service will be rolling out to the Xbox One in stages. This means that collections of titles will be available for the service in stages, though no one knows how those games will be selected. In any case, a developer like Criterion is probably keen on having their game added to the compatibility list, which is a great way to get the ball rolling.
