If you already own (or decide to buy) these games, they'll show up in the Ready to Download area of the My Games and Apps section on your Xbox One. You can download and play them like any other game.

With these five games, Microsoft has now added 10 Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One backwards compatibility lineup this week, following the release of three titles on Tuesday and two more on Wednesday.

There are now more than 150 games in the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library. You can see all of the Xbox 360 games you can currently play on an Xbox One here.

New games are added to the mix whenever they are ready, not on a set schedule. There are five games confirmed to be coming to the program but have not been delivered yet. These are Call of Duty: Black Ops, BioShock, BioShock 2, BioShock Infinite, and Skate 3.
