Almost 50 percent of Xbox One owners are using the Xbox Backward Compatibility system, according to a recent tweet from Xbox head Phil Spencer.

It’s been just over a year since the program started rolling out to users, and in that time, Microsoft has made over 300 games Backward Compatible. A few new games usually join the program every week, with recent big titles including Injustice: Gods Among Us, and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Though limited to 140 characters, Spencer thanked fans for their support of the program.

Most recently, the entire BioShock series was added to the program. Check out the full list of Backward Compatible games here.
