Microsoft announced that the next Xbox 360 games you can play on the Xbox One would be Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon and F1 2014.
Both titles were almost tipping 3,000 votes on the Xbox One backwards compatibility leaderboards, and fans are expecting more to come.
Despite a fairly slow June in terms of backwards compatible announcements, the month yielded a total of 6 BC games.
Blockbuster games Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Call of Duty: Ghosts were among some of the titles revealed last month, and while the first two titles this month aren’t necessarily the same caliber, there is more to come.
Microsoft seems to be massively extending their coverage, as they aren’t just adding backwards compatible games to the Xbox One.

All currently released BC games will make their way over to the Xbox One X come its release in November.
Microsoft is also set to bring Christmas early for Halo fans, as they are ensuring that you can play every single Halo game on their consoles.
Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary all being added, and the DLC will not only be made backwards compatible, but released completely free along side it.
Xbox hasn’t stopped at backwards compatibility this month, as they have also revealed two impressive titles for their games with gold feature.
This month, fans will have the opportunity to pick up Kane and Lynch 2 and the Lego Pirates of the Caribbean game completely free with an Xbox Live subscription.
Kane and Lynch 2 will only be available until July 15th, then it will be taken over by LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game the following day on the 16th.
Even with these announcements, backwards compatibility will still be very much at the top of many gamers agendas.
Halo developers 343 Industries are excited about the ever growing list of BC games, saying:
“The Xbox One’s list of backward compatible titles has grown by leaps and bounds since the initial wave of games came out in 2015, with nearly three hundred Xbox 360 titles currently supported.
“Today we’re thrilled to announce four more very special additions coming later this year to the Xbox One back-compat program: Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: CE Anniversary!
343 Studios are stepping up the much-loved Halo multiplayer, as all multiplayer modes will be playable on backwards compatible games, and LAN parties may now be hosted between the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
