Just days after its press conference at E3, Microsoft continues to excite gamers with more backwards-compatible titles for Xbox One. A tweet from majornelson, a Microsoft senior employee, revealed five new games that are now available for download.


Thanks to Gamezone we got our hands on the tweet, which showed posters of Left 4 Dead and Portal 2 side by side along with a message confirming the games for Xbox One. Majornelson also provided a link to all Xbox One backward-compatible games, including three more titles — Babel Rising, Flashback and Brain Challenge.

Microsoft has been making headlines by releasing backwards compatible titles like Call of Duty: Black Ops and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Although Microsoft may seem slow in releasing titles based on Xbox user’s feedback, we can certainly expect more flagship titles from the company.

During an interview with Game Central (via Metro), Phil Spencer spoke about the agenda of Xbox and how the console company looks at success in a different aspect. Although it’s clear critics are busy bashing Microsoft for losing against PS4 in the battle of total sales, it looks like the Xbox-makers have a different strategy in mind.

“We announced Xbox 360 backwards compatibility for the Xbox One last year and fans loved it, because they bought those games from us and they wanted to be able to continue to play,” Spencer said. “So putting the customer at the centre of what we’re doing is really the core to the strategy, and this is the reason I stay out of the dialogue about how many consoles did Sony sell last week versus how many we’ve sold…”

Microsoft’s game plan seems to entirely concentrate on bringing its community together. Their primary concern is improving interest on their latest console, which makes it a no-brainer the company will release more backward-compatible games for Xbox One in the near future.
