Microsoft adds 19 more OG Xbox games to Backward Compatiblity; over 500 games on the list

As it stands right now, there are about 485 games on the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list, after Microsoft added two more games last week. Today though, the company announced that it will be adding 19 more original Xbox games to the list this month, which will bring Xbox One Backward Compatibility beyond the milestone of supporting 500 Xbox and Xbox 360 games.

The following Xbox games will be added to Backward Compatibility on the 17th:

  • Blinx: The Time Sweeper

  • Breakdown

  • Conker: Live & Reloaded

  • The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

  • Hunter: The Reckoning

  • Jade Empire

  • Panzer Dragoon Orta

  • SSX 3

The following are coming on the 26th:

  • Destroy All Humans!

  • Full Spectrum Warrior

  • Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction

  • MX Unleashed

  • Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory (Europe only)

  • Star Wars: Battlefront

  • Star Wars: Battlefront II

  • Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

  • Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter

  • Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

  • Star Wars: Republic Commando

There are also some Xbox 360 games that are receiving enhancements for the Xbox One X, which was also announced during Inside Xbox today. The following games will be enhanced:

  • Darksiders

  • Gears of War 2

  • Portal 2

  • Red Dead Redemption

  • Sonic Generations (first time available on Xbox One)

  • Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

All of the Xbox One X enhancements that were announced today will also be available today.

Indeed, 500 Xbox and Xbox 360 games that are playable on the Xbox One family of consoles is quite the milestone, being that the program was introduced in June of 2015, which was almost three years ago. Microsoft has made great strides toward the idea of one Xbox where you can play all of the games you've purchased throughout the console's generations.
