Two main entries in the Metal Gear Solid series, Metal Gear Solid 2 HD and Metal Gear Solid 3 HD, are going to hit Xbox One later today thanks to the Backward Compatibility feature.
Earlier today, Major Nelson confirmed that Metal Gear Solid 2 HD and Metal Gear Solid 3 HD will become available for play on Xbox One later in the day. Sadly, it seems like Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker won't join the other two games.
