Xbox One Backward Compatibility update to add Oblivion and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3?

MICROSOFT has once again announced more excellent backwards compatible Xbox 360 games available to play on Xbox One consoles.

Xbox may have inexplicably announced the addition of two more games to their ever growing backwards compatibility library.

Usually this would come from community manager Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb on Twitter.

But in this instance it was revealed when Microsoft launched a new page for its Black Friday sale that lists discounted Xbox 360 games that are also playable on Xbox One.

In the list was The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, both of which have not been announced for backwards compatibility.

Major Nelson has since reported that these were added in "error" and that the list is in the process of being corrected. But it wouldn't be surprising if these games are on the way.

Oblivion would be the first Elder Scrolls Xbox 360 game playable on Xbox One, while Modern Warfare 3 would be the fifth Call of Duty title added, joining the likes of Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and Call of Duty: World at War.

On the Xbox Feedback site, Modern Warfare 3 has more than 111,000 community votes for it to be added into the backwards compatibility program, making it one of the most-requested titles.

On the other hand, Oblivion has more than 55,000 votes, which still puts it in the top 15 requested titles.

However, these latest four games pale in comparison to some recent backwards compatible additions.

Should The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 be made available, it would bring the total number of Xbox 360 games playable on the Xbox One up to 290, slowly edging ever closer to the elusive 300 mark.
