Microsoft continues to expand the #Xbox One backwards compatibility feature after it added three new titles last week. According to the Express UK, the "Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition" is the latest to arrive following the release of "Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon" and "F1 2014." The Street Fighter joined the most requested titles after it garnered 22,000 votes; securing a spot on the leaderboard. It was also confirmed that the Halo series would also arrive on the BC feature.

There are several Halo titles mainly "Halo 3," "Halo 3: ODST," "Halo 4," and "Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary." This means that fans can still expect a triple A games to arrive on the feature based on the franchise title itself.

Interestingly, all of these games' DLCs will also be included on the free Xbox One backwards compatibility offer. 343 Industries, the developer behind the franchise, also confirmed the inclusion of campaign and multiplayer as well as support for LAN play between the Xbox One and Xbox 360 console.

Shelved titles in the BC feature

With over three hundred titles in the Xbox One backwards compatibility list, Microsoft previously announced that they have indeed shelved some of the less popular titles. In a previous report by the Express UK, at least 160 Xbox 360 classic titles were already shelved. These games were mostly dependent on Kinect and some third party hardware to play. The Xbox One backwards compatibility feature is based on "software emulation" making these titles less candidate to stay in the feature.

Xbox 360 vs. Xbox One console

This feature from Microsoft has kept their fans from jumping to another platform after the Xbox 360 was succeeded by the Xbox One console. Apparently, those who diligently supported the Xbox 360 only needed to migrate to the Xbox One and they can play selected titles on the current gen console. Players who previously bought the titles on the Xbox 360 will automatically see them on the Xbox One store. Otherwise, players will need to purchase and manually download the game.

In other news, the Xbox One X console will be released on November 7, 2017. That means migration of games from the current gen console is also expected; similar to the Xbox 360. Some of the confirmed titles for the new Microsoft gaming platform include Tom Clancy's "Ghost Recon: Wildlands," "Halo Wars 2," "The Elder Scrolls Online," "Destiny 2," "Paladins" and much more. The console is currently priced at $499 with no confirmed bundle at the moment. #Xbox One Games #Xbox 360 Games
