While the games are likely to be best with a Bluetooth controller, the team at Xbox has also added touch controls to Jetpac Refuelled, Viva Pinata, and Viva Pinata Trouble In Paradise.

The games will also support cloud-save sync via Xbox Live, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Members can jump in right now.

Here's the full list of titles included in the beta:

  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Banjo-Tooie
  • Double Dragon Neon
  • Fable II
  • Fallout: New Vegas
  • Gears of War 2
  • Gears of War 3
  • Gears of War: Judgment
  • Jetpac Refuelled (touch controls enabled)
  • Kameo
  • Perfect Dark
  • Perfect Dark Zero
  • The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  • Viva Piñata (touch controls enabled)
  • Viva Piñata: TIP (touch controls enabled)

Honestly, if you'd told me back in 2006 that one day I'd be able to play Oblivion a phone, I would have said you were mad, but here we are.
