Microsoft introduces 16 new games supported by Xbox One backward compatibility

Just over a month has passed since Microsoft rolled out the New Xbox One Experience. The update increased the speed and efficiency of everyday interactions and introduced a range of new features that further integrated the console into the Windows 10 ecosystem.

Alongside the update, the long-awaited ‘backward compatibility' feature was launched, which enabled select Xbox 360 games to run on Xbox One hardware and overcome the differences in system architecture. At launch, the feature supported 104 titles, with new games scheduled to arrive on the list each month. Microsoft promised that the next wave of games would arrive in mid-December, and as of today, sixteen new Xbox 360 titles are now playable on the Xbox One.
