Microsoft adds three more games to Xbox One Backward Compatibility

Today, Microsoft announced that it's adding three more titles to the list of Xbox and Xbox 360 games that are playable on the Xbox One family of consoles via the Backward Compatibility program. All of the new additions today were originally made for the Xbox 360 console, and it brings the list to a grand total of 513 games, with the 500-game milestone being crossed last month.

The new additions today include Saints Row, Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, and Toybox Turbos.

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell ($14.99)

After the space faring antics of Saints Row IV, many fans asked what we could do next... the answer? Shoot The Devil in the face. Play as either Johnny Gat or Kinzie Kensington as you tear apart Hell in a quest to save the leader of the Saints’ soul. Historical icons, old friends, older enemies, a talking gun, a full length musical number, and a whole lot of other shenanigans all await you in the open world standalone expansion playground that is Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell.

Pinky swear.
