Xbox’s Major Nelson has confirmed an earlier leak that 8 new games will be arriving on Xbox via backwards compatibility today.
The leak came yesterday from Twitter user @ekim_gaf, the same person who outed the Gears of War Xbox One S early. No doubt, at this point, Microsoft will be trying to locate the source of all these early leaks. They should probably give Nintendo a ring and hire their resident plumber.

- Capcom Arcade Cabinet
- Crystal Defenders
- Fret Nice

There are no triple-A titles to speak of, but plenty of old arcade classics for you to enjoy on your warm summer evenings.
