The number of Xbox titles playable on the 360 now totals over 300, with online games playable cross-platform between Xbox 360 and the original Xbox over the Live service.

New titles added to the list include Burnout 2: Point of Impact, Fight Night Round 3, The Chronicles of Narnia and Worms 3D.

As well as playing original Xbox games on the 360, from next week users will be able to download a select number of titles from Xbox Live for 1200 Microsoft Points, as the company continues to make the most of its back catalogue.
