When Xbox announced that they were implementing backwards compatibility, a lot of people cheered. Now even more people will be happy. Xbox has added more games to the list of Xbox 360 games that will now be playable on the Xbox One.

Sixteen new titles were announced today. The titles are mixed bag. There are some really great big ones in there, such as Halo: Reach, but there are also a lot of smaller puzzle games. Here’s the full list of new titles.

  • 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!

The backwards compatibility program has been live since November 12. It allows gamers to play a selection of 360 games on the Xbox One. In order to do this, you must have an Xbox Live Gold account, and you must have owned the game for the 360. Your digital purchases will show up automatically and be ready for download. For disc-based games, you need to put the disc in the console and leave it there while you play. Currently there are more than 100 titles available in the program, with more to be added down the line. If you’ve got a game you’d like to join the list, you can submit a suggestion to Microsoft.
