The Xbox One Backward Compatibility program is not a new development, having been introduced in November last year. But over time, as new games come out, hundreds of game titles have been slowly but surely making their way into the Xbox One roster. To date, a total of 297 games have been included in the collection.

In recent months, some new games have given Xbox One enthusiasts something to get excited about. New titles just added this month are "Haunted House," "Injustice: Gods Among Us," "Trine 2," "Oblivion," "Medal of Honor: Airborne," and "Astropop."

Of the newest of the bunch, the game "Gods Among Us" is the disc-only Ultimate Edition. The addition of "Oblivion," which is part of the "Elder Scrolls" game series indicates that bigger games are now being added by Microsoft to the Xbox-One-playable games. This latter game found a home with other Bethesda game titles which became part of the collection this year, such as "RAGE," "Doom 3 BFG Edition," as well as the popular "Fallout: New Vegas."

With "Mass Effect 2" and "Mass Effect 3" also joining other titles in the Xbox One library, "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" has remained a much clamored for title with some 200,000 fans voting through the Microsoft-created portal for its inclusion. A highly popular game title, "Call of Duty" games take five of ten most popular titles found in the backward compatibility Xbox One feature.

A comprehensive list of existing games which are now part of the Xbox One backward Compatibility feature can be downloaded. These titles include "Assassin's Creed," 'Borderlands," and "Call of Duty 2, 3, Black Ops, World at War," "Crystal Quest," "NBA Jam: On Fire Edition," and much, much more.

Fans whose favorite games have not yet been added to the program may not despair as yet. Microsoft has revealed that it is holding talks with various game publishers and developers to bring more games into the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program.
