Microsoft Adds 16 Xbox 360 Games To Its Xbox One Backwards Compatibility List

Deal from Microsoft is something that for Xbox One owners by following through on its promise to deliver backwards compatibity for more Xbox 360 titles. Although, by adding Xbox One compability for 104 varied Xbox 360 games last month, the company has some good on its promise by bringing additional support to a further 16 more Xbox 360 titles today just in time for Christmas holiday vacation season. With the additional support, Xbox One owners are now able to interact with a whooping 120 legacy Xbox 360 titles in total as of today.

The welcoming of backwards compatibility in itself is a great news for everyone who has upgraded to an Xbox One but still look for those occasions where they can play their favorite titles of yeasteryear. Good news here is that, in fact that consumers are able to take advantage of additional support for these 16 new titles, regardless of whether they own the hard copy disc version of the game or the digital version downloaded from the Xbox Store.


The ignition of backwards compability on Xbox One has seen gamers explode logging more than 9 million playing hours on those titles originally intended for playback on the Xbox 360 console. Out of which from 100_ games, the most playable hours have been enjoyed on some of the larger titled franchises like Fallout 2, Gears of War, and Just Cause 2. However, those numbers are almost certain to increase now that owners of the Xbox One have well-known titles like “Deus Ex: Human Revolution,” “Halo: Reach,” “Braid,” “Doritos Crash Course,” “Portal: Still Alive” and “Peggle,” Fable III and Halo:Reach to reminisce over.


The newly supported backwards compatible games are as follows:

  • Braid
  • Doritos Crash Course
  • Fable III
  • Halo: Reach
  • Hydro Thunder
  • Iron Brigade
  • Kane & Lynch 2
  • Motorcross Madness
  • Peggle
  • Portal: Still Alive
  • Spelunky
  • Splosion Man
  • Ticket to Ride
  • Zuma’s Revenge!

The integration of backwards compability made by Microsoft and Xbox team has clearly garnered a lot of excitement from gamers, which was made possible after the recently rolled out New Xobox One Experience (NXOE) update to consoles across the world. The company is keen in pumping out additional support for excellent, nostalgic titles like it has just done, then it is likely to continue giving Sony’s PlayStation 4 a tough competition in the ongoing console war.
