Don't question it... just do it!

In November, when Microsoft announced the first 104 Xbox 360 titles that would be newly compatible with the Xbox One, the company announced further compatibility would be added "on a regular basis" starting this month. That process began Thursday, with the announcement of 16 additional Xbox 360 titles now supported by Microsoft's newest console. Those titles are:

  • Braid
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution
  • Doritos Crash Course
  • Fable III
  • Halo: Reach
  • Hydro Thunder
  • Iron Brigade
  • Kane & Lynch 2
  • Motocross Madness
  • MS.PAC-MAN
  • Peggle
  • Portal: Still Alive
  • Spelunky
  • Splosion Man
  • Ticket to Ride
  • Zuma’s Revenge!

Though Microsoft says some games require slight tweaks to Microsoft's emulation system to allow for compatibility, the major factor slowing down the rollout seems to be securing permission from the various publishers of each game. Indeed, today Microsoft said it is "continuing to work with our publishing partners to grow our library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles, so stay tuned for more."

At the current rate of 16 newly compatible games per month, it would take about five years for the 1,000 or so Xbox 360 titles released in North America to be fully supported on the Xbox One.
