This is the second time this week that new titles are now backward compatible – Jet Set Radio, MX vs. ATV Reflex and Texas Hold ‘Em were added to the list on Tuesday 3rd May.

With this, the list of backward compatible games on Xbox One grows again. When backward compatibility was officially added to the Xbox One, there were 104 available titles, including Beyond Good & Evil and all games of the Gears of War franchise.

This pair of games for Xbox 360 debuted over the past decade, the first in 2008 and second in 2010. Now they are back, its price will drop from $19.99 USD to $4.99 USD for a limited time.

Remember that Microsoft has also made it possible, in a recent update, to buy Xbox 360 games directly from the Xbox One store. In addition, the update also brings the chat up to 16 people, increasing the game clips of recording time (which can now go up to five minutes), the option to set where the audio Party Chat will come out – in your headphones, speakers, or both – the ability to watch videos directly from the Feed Activities and Achievements display in the Xbox Guide.
