Riding the momentum of its backward compatibility program, Xbox One included three more titles in its catalog as the month of January came to a close.

Last Tuesday, in a tweet by Larry Hyrb, also known as Major Nelson, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, "Mad Tracks," "JUJU," and "Stuntman: Ignition" became the latest additions to Xbox One's game library. Gamers who already own these titles in their Xbox 360 will get to enjoy them automatically, while those who do not will have to purchase them through their Xbox One consoles. "JUJU" and "Stuntman: Ignition" go for $15, while "Mad Tracks" cost $10.

In a report by Gamespot last month, 15 games were already added to the catalog in the month of January, prior to the addition of the latest three. Some of the earlier titles that were included last month are "Shadows of the Damned," "Rocket Knight," "Alice: Madness Returns," "Mutant Storm Empire," and "Tekken 6."

The Xbox One backward compatibility program was launched in November 2015, which allows Xbox 360 users to play their most-loved games and favorites in the new console. To date, there are over 300 Xbox 360 games that are now playable on Xbox One.

Xbox Wire, Microsoft's official website for Xbox, previously announced a milestone year for the gaming platform. The website reported that close to 400 new games were enjoyed by Xbox One owners last year, bannered by "Forza Horizon 3" and "Gears of War 4." Moreover, Microsoft also claimed that more than 265 million combined hours of playing Xbox 360 games were spent by Xbox One owners through the backward compatibility offering.

Furthermore, Xbox Live was honored as the "fastest and most reliable gaming network" by an independent study conducted by HIS Markit, covering the U.S. and the U.K.

Meanwhile, a report from Express said that another batch of games will be included on the backward compatibility list on Feb. 2.
