Backwards compatibility list just got even bigger, as two Xbox 360 classics join the list.

Mafia 2 and Prey have become the latest Xbox 360 games to join the Xbox One backwards compatibility list.

Both games are available from the Xbox One online store, and can also be played by inserting the original discs.

Anybody who downloaded the games in the Xbox 360 era will find the new release in the ‘My Games and Apps’ section of the dashboard.

Even better news is that both games are available at a discounted price as part of the latest Xbox One sale.

Fans can grab Mafia 2 for just £6.24, while Prey costs just £2.99.

Prey – which has nothing to do with Bethesda’s recent PS4 and Xbox One release – has an impressive 79% score on Metacritic.

“Prey tells the story of Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic stuck on a reservation going nowhere,” reads the official post. “Along with his people, he is abducted to a menacing mothership orbiting Earth, where he sets out to save himself, his girlfriend, and eventually his planet.”

Mafia 2, meanwhile, is an open-world crime game with a Metacritic score of 74%.

“Mafia II is a beautifully crafted look into the dark and unforgiving world of the Mafia,” the official description reads.

“Hi-octane gunplay, brutal fighting and white-knuckle driving bust onto the screen as a Hollywood-style cinematic experience. It is the intriguing story of Vito Scaletta, who along with his childhood friend, Joe, will descend into the world of organised crime.

“Together, they will work to prove themselves to the Mafia as they try to make their names on the streets. Starting with low-level jobs like robbery and stealing cars, Vito and Joe escalate quickly up the Mafia family ladder…but the life as a wise guy isn’t quite as glamorous as it seems.”

Hopefully Microsoft will now turn its attention to the original Xbox Backwards Compatibility list.

While Microsoft is keen to assure fans that more games will be added over time, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said that there are complications with licenses.

“There are a number of OG games in BC pipeline, they won’t drop as often as the 360 games but team is working to validate and get permissions,” Spencer tweeted.

“More complicated with some just due to the age of the rights etc.”

Original Xbox releases joined the backwards compatibility lineup last year. Compatible games include Ninja Gaiden Black, Bloodrayne 2, Crimson Skies, Dead to Rights and Grabbed by the Ghoulies.
