The Xbox One's straightforward backward compatibility is a huge win for Microsoft, and Redmond isn't about to give up on one of the only edges it has over Sony's PlayStation 4. Now Team Lime Green has shown off the new batch of Xbox 360 games that are playable on the Xbox One, including some nice yesteryear hits.
Major Nelson announced the fresh releases in a new blog post, along with a bit of extra info. Like every wave of new backward compatible games, this new list is made up of retail games as well as digital Xbox LIVE Arcade titles. Truth be told, the new offering isn't that exciting, with The Witcher 2 and CS: GO being the most popular hits. Skullgirls has stirred up acclaim, and you can't go wrong with Soul Caliber (even if it's only the first game), but the rest just seem to be the result of Microsoft practicing the new feature.
Check below for a complete list of the new Xbox One backward compatible games:
- Aegis Wing
- Age of Booty
- CS: GO
- Jeremy McGrath's Offroad
- Sam and Max Save the World
- Small Arms
- Soul Caliber
- Space Giraffe
- The Witcher 2: Assassin's of Kings
