Microsoft adds three more games to Xbox One Backward Compatibility

Today, Microsoft added three more titles to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list, including The Darkness II, Spec Ops: The Line, and The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom. The list now includes a grand total of 470 Xbox and Xbox 360 games that are playable on Microsoft's latest generation of gaming consoles.

The company has been adding new games pretty frequently since it came back from the holiday break. Two backward compatible titles were added last week, with six the week before.

Here's what's new today:
