Microsoft made a lot of gamers happy at E3 when it announced backward compatibility was coming to the Xbox One in November. The Redmond-based company made good on that promise last month and now, several additional titles have been added that are now playable on its latest console.
An additional 16 Xbox 360 games join the 104 titles that are already backward compatible, bringing the total count to 120. The new games include Braid, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Doritos Crash Course, Fable III, Halo: Reach, Hydro Thunder, Iron Brigade, Kane & Lynch 2, Motocross Madness, Ms. Pac-Man, Peggle, Portal: Still Alive, Spelunky, Splosion Man, Ticket to Ride and Zuma's Revenge!
As is the case with all of the games, they work regardless of whether you have the physical disc or a digital copy.
Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb announced the new additions on his blog, noting that gamers have already logged more than nine million hours playing Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One. The most popular games thus far include Fallout 3, Gears of War 3, Just Cause 2, Assassin's Creed II and Dirt 3.
Hryb said Microsoft is continuing to work with publishing partners to grow the list of backward compatible titles and that they plan to add to the catalog on a regular basis. Gamers are also encouraged to vote for which titles they want to see added to the list over on the Xbox Feedback site.
