Microsoft adds eight more games to Xbox One Backward Compatibility list

Microsoft continues to expand the list of Xbox 360 games that are backward compatible with the Xbox One today, as eight additional titles have been added to the list.

Even though the list is always expanding at a rapid pace, eight new games is still a lot, and there are some big titles in today's addition. Last week's addition of five games saw a major milestone for the company, as there are now over 200 Xbox 360 games that can be played on the Xbox One.

Here are the new games that were added today:
