Microsoft confirmed earlier this year that by November 2015 the Xbox One will be able to play games that were initially released for Xbox One courtesy of the backwards compatibility feature. The feature was launched last month with 100 titles supporting it at launch. Ahead of the holidays Microsoft has now confirmed that an additional 16 Xbox 360 titles are now backwards compatible on the Xbox One.
Starting today Xbox One owners can choose from 16 titles, even if they play using a current-gen console they will be able to play with friends, take screenshots, stream and record in-game DVR clips.
The new titles 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.
Microsoft says that it continues to work with its publishing partners to further grow the library of backwards compatible titles for the Xbox One, it promises that additions will be made to the catalog on a regular basis.
It places importance on fan feedback when deciding which games should be added to the catalog and then works with the game’s publisher to that end, Xbox One owners can provide their feedback here on the Xbox 360 titles that they would like to see added to the catalog.
