Following the addition of backward compatibility to the Xbox One last month, Microsoft has unveiled the next batch of Xbox 360 games to be playable on their console.  The publisher has announced 16 more titles coming to the system, all of which are playable today.  Revealed on Xbox Wire today, the games being added are as follows:

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

Microsoft guarantees that these will not be the last games made available.  "We're continuing to work with our publishing partners to grow our library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles, so stay tuned for more."

Absent from the slate were some of the top requested titles on Microsoft's voting site for games fans wish to see made backward compatible.  The top three selections - Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption - are currently showing no indication of an imminent release.  However, Call of Duty: Black Ops - the fifth most voted upon game - is confirmed to be "on the way."

Microsoft's announcement comes at a time when Sony has begun implementing PS2 emulation on the PS4.  Titles like Grand Theft Auto III, PaRappa the Rapper 2, and more have recently become available for purchase costing $10-15; all have been up-rendered to 1080p and given Trophy Support.  Similar to Microsoft, Sony has also been asking fans for their input on what games they would like to see -- Dave Thach, of Playstation Worldwide Studios America, has requested fans to use the hashtag "#ps2ps4" so Sony can keep track.
