Microsoft will leave no stone unturned in its effort at ensuring that its gaming fans enjoy its Xbox One Backward Compatibility. That is why it is making efforts geared towards making its Backward Compatibility as robust as it can.

The Backward Compatibility is a feature that lets its users to play the Xbox 360 titles on Microsoft’s latest console. The feature has continued to enjoy tremendous growth and improvement, thanks to help by developers. According to a statement made available on its official Xbox website, the company said a slew of new backwards-compatible games arrived on Thursday. These include Soulcalibur, The Witcher 2,: Assassins of Kings (available for free until February 5th) and Counter-Strike: Go, and a couple of others.

It is interesting to note that Microsoft will now start releasing titles as they become available, instead of setting a launch date for them every month. This is a great move in my opinion, since it gives me the opportunity to reminisce over old games.

“Starting today, we’ll release titles as they become available, rather than a set monthly launch date. What this means for you is that you won’t have to wait to find out the latest titles; we’ll release whatever is available, when they’re available, once each title has received the engineering and publisher stamp of approval,” the company said on its Xbox website on Thursday.

Microsoft kicked off its Backward Compatibility last November, and the response rate has been quite impressive, especially in terms of fans feedback. This helps the company to shape its Xbox experience, and was integral in making the “Xbox One Backward Compatibility a reality.”

The company explained that millions of Xbox gamers around the globe have already logged more than 21 million hours playing Xbox One Backward Compatibility games; and this further encourages it to listen to feedback and response.

The Xbox One Backward Compatibility allows you to play Xbox 360 games on the console. In terms of user experience, nothing beats the Xbox One as it remains the best place to play your favourite Xbox 360 games, regardless of whether you are playing them for the first time of finishing games you have started already.

Upon launch last November, the following titles were made available to Xbox One Backward Compatibility:

  • Braid
  • DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION
  • Doritos Crash Course
  • Fable III
  • Halo Reach
  • Hydro Thunder
  • Iron Brigade
  • Kane & Lynch 2
  • Motocross Madness
  • PAC-MAN
  • Peggle
  • Portal: Still Alive
  • Spelunky
  • Splosion Man
  • Ticket To Ride
  • Zuma’s Revenge

However, the title list was updated on Thursday to now include more such as:

  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
  • Sam & Max Save the World
  • Aegis Wing
  • Counter-Strike: GO
  • Age of Booty
  • Space Giraffe

Xbox will continue to work with its partners to grow and update its library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles; which is a form of good news for those whose favourite game has not been added to the list yet.
