List of games that have been added to Xbox One Backward Compatibility program just keeps getting longer as they've recently added "Modern Warfare 3" and "Oblivion" to its list. Microsoft recently launched a new page especially for its Black Friday Sale and with it is "The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion" and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3."

According to GameSpot, both "Modern Warfare 3" and "Oblivion" has been advertised as backward compatible, although the company still hasn't officially made an announcement yet. Microsoft would usually announce the additions to their list every 9 AM PT/ 12 PM ET, so formal announcements are expected to be made more every week. "Oblivion will be the first of the "Elder Scrolls" game series for Xbox 360 to be playable on Xbox One. Meanwhile, "Modern Warfare 3" would be added to other "Call of Duty" games that are already included on their backwards compatibility database like "Call of Duty 2", "Call of Duty: Black Ops", "Call of Duty 3", and "Call of Duty: World at War".

Both "Modern Warfare 3" and "Oblivion" are marked down and will be included in Xbox Live's Black Friday sale. Xbox players can select from more than 280 games in the current Xbox One backward compatibility database released in their website. November has been a great month for fans who are looking to play their favorite Xbox 360 games. Other games that were recently added are "Mass Effect 2", "Mass Effect 3", "Skate 3", and "Blue Dragon.

The Xbox One's idea of getting their old games back was launched a year ago and have been adding games ever since. In fact, a day after the release of "Dead Space Ignition" and "Escape Dead Island", Microsoft soon added "Military Madness" and "Omega Five" to its long list of games that were added to their backward compatible games list, Express reported.
