  19. The Witcher 2 headlines Xbox One January back-compatibility gamesRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Jan 21 | Eurogamer

    Microsoft has added another 10 titles to its Xbox One backwards compatibility programme, including the Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2. January's batch of back-compat titles also includes downloadable fighting game Skullgirls and Telltale's Sam & Max Save the World. Counter-Strike: GO is also now back compatible, which means the game has been released on Xbox One in Europe before PlayStation 3. It's... an okay list, but Xbox owners will likely be looking at the most-requested games on Microsoft's Xbox Feedback site and wondering if any of them are ever going to see light of day - such as all of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series, plus all the Grand Theft Auto titles and Red Dead Redemption.
