Microsoft has updated the Xbox One backward compatible versions of three Codemasters racing games for the Xbox 360. Following the update, the games can now be played using wheel controllers made for the Xbox One.

The three games supported by the updates are DiRT 3, Dirt Showdown and GRID 2. The addition of wheel controller support was initally revealed on the Major Nelson's Twitter account earlier today.

This is great news for hardcore racing fans who prefer to use a wheel controller to a standard Xbox One controller. Hopefully, this support will be extended to other Xbox 360 racing games in the near future.
