Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility: Here Are The First Games

Microsoft Xbox One X

Microsoft also confirmed IGN's list and also claimed that the next assortment of original Xbox games with Xbox One backward compatibility is expected to land next spring. All titles will run at 1080p, with a frame rate per second higher than the original and reduced load times.

Starting Tuesday, October 24, Xbox One users will be able to play select original Xbox games thanks to a backward-compatibility update. Xbox One X is said to be "the world's most powerful console" by the company as it boasts 4K experience to gaming.

If you're curious to see how much different these games will look, you can check out the sample of videos in the post to get an idea.

These are now the first wave of games that are being worked on by Microsoft with plenty of more games in the pipeline for the Original Xbox and the Xbox 360. Many of these games can also be purchased from the Xbox Store in digital form for $9.99.

As revealed at E3, all titles that support system link still support it, including cross-generationally. Not to mention that we won't complain about the awesomeness that is the Knights of the Old Republic becoming playable on another platform. As it turns out, 13 titles will be joining the program and they will be hitting Xbox One consoles as early as tomorrow.

As for what original Xbox games will be brought forward next, the team is being careful to keep expectations in check - though they have a good reason. There will also be no Achievements for Original Xbox games because this functionality was also not originally available. Well, guess what - it starts tomorrow! What's more, it's perhaps easier and less time-consuming to make specific games backwards compatible rather than work with developers to remaster games (and whole series).

How excited are you for OG Xbox backwards compatibility?
