Street Fighter IV (opens in new tab) should be a boon for any big fans of the fighting series. If you're familiar with the franchise, there won't be any surprises here: the likes of Ryu, Chun-Li and Ken are here with a dedicated arcade mode to boot.

The other 3 titles are much more minor entries on the list. Luxor 2 (opens in new tab) is a puzzle game in which you destroy colored balls to take on Egyptian god Set. Poker Smash (opens in new tab), on the other hand, is an interesting arcade-like take on poker with 7 different game modes. Finally, Madballs: Babo Invasion (opens in new tab) looks like a violent little top-down shooter in which you take on dozens of different game modes as an armored sphere character, attempting to kill as many enemies as possible.

If you already own any of these games, you should be able to start playing them on your Xbox One now. For more, be sure to check out our running list of backward compatible games.

  • Finally...
  • bring the PGR series
  • Wow, this is great news for SF fans :-)
    Now we want SoulCalibur 4 and 5 please :-)
  • MadBalls are a thing again??? I had so many of those when I was a kid!!
  • Yay!! Street fighter IV! And Just after I bought it on Steam on my PC...rats! Great news tho, This'll be my 1st BC game I'll be buying.
  • Quick question. Wouldn't it be a great idea to bring BC games to windows 10 also? I see two advantages to this. 1. It will Grow the windows 10 ecosystem as the app store (games) will explode with these high quality Xbox 360 games. 2. Because Xbox 360 games are less high def (for lack of a better term) than current games, most will run pretty well on most windows 10 computers further growing windows 10 as a gaming OS..
  • Finally a street fighter... Holy crap.
  • To bad my Super Street Fighter 4 doesnt work. Ridiculous!
  • Sf4?!, why not make it ultra sf4? This makes no sense, would you rather have SF2 or Super SF2: Turbo? The latest and the final version is what we all want. I just want Marvel vs Capcom 2 now.
