The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility titles’ library has been updated, adding Prince of Persia, Earth Defence 2025 and SINE MORA to the hundred others available already. Microsoft is still going strong with the creation of a competitive retro gaming service since they point out that it is more popular that fans expect.
Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, programming director of Xbox LIVE, shared the news on Twitter yesterday. He revealed that Prince of Persia along with Earth Defense Force 2025 and Sine Mora for Xbox 360 can be enjoyed on Xbox One through the backwards compatibility function.

In contrast to popular belief, the program works with physical and digital copies of games for Xbox 360. What is important to mention is that if you have them on disk it will be necessary to insert it into the console every time you want to play, since it is used as a method of license verification. Here’s a list of all the titles added to the service since July:
