Xbox One latest news: Microsoft Extends list of Xbox One backward-compatible games this week

(Reuters/Carlos Barria)Xbox One Backward Compatibility list now has a total of 300 titles

Microsoft's initiative to bring back some of its popular games has just extended its list this week. Xbox One Backward Compatibility Program ended the month of January by adding Xbox 360 versions of "Mad Tracks," "JUJU," and "Stuntman: Ignition" to the list. This move is in addition to the 15 titles that were already added last month.

Director of Programming for Xbox Live Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb first announced on Twitter the addition of the three aforementioned titles to Xbox One Backward Compatibility starting Feb. 1.

Even though none of the titles are well known, more compatible games are expected to be added in the next couple of months. "Stuntman: Ignition" lets the player take the role of a Hollywood stuntman in his rise to becoming the next Hollywood stunt superstar. "JUJU" is a fun adventure game that lets players control a shaman panda named JUJU, while "Mad Track" is an interactive miniature car racing game.

Other games that were recently added are "Battlefield 3" and "Battlefield: Bad Company 2," "Alice: Madness Returns" and "Shadows of the Damned." There are currently more than 300 console games available on Xbox One system via backward compatibility. According to Express, many fans are hoping that "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" will be added to the list as well. 

The games will automatically appear in the player's games and even apps list if he or she already owns any of the titles included in the Backward Compatibility program. Gamers can also purchase digital downloads from the Xbox official website and the Xbox One store.

In other Xbox One updates, Microsoft has recently updated its lineup for Games With Gold for February. There will be two Xbox 360 games and two Xbox One games available for download on Microsoft's official stores.
