More of your old Xbox 360 games could now be playable on Xbox One today.

Microsoft revealed 10 more Xbox 360 titles that are now playable on its newest console. Backward compatibility is a feature that the Xbox One can boast over the PlayStation 4 (which can only play PlayStation 3 games via the PlayStation Now streaming service, which you must pay for). The new 360 games include:

  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
  • Sam & Max Save the World
  • Aegis Wing
  • Counter-Strike: GO
  • Age of Booty
  • Space Giraffe
  • Soulcalibur
  • Skullgirls
  • Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad
  • Small Arms

Microsoft also noted that starting today, it will release 360 games as they become available. Before, the company would release batches of backward compatibility updates on a monthly basis.
