Original Xbox Console Games Joining Xbox One’s Backwards Compatibility List Later This Year

Original Xbox games will become backwards compatible on Xbox One later this year, it’s been revealed.

As with 360 games on Xbox One, original Xbox games will receive a performance boost when played on the new hardware.

More details will be released at a later date, we’re told, with the only game confirmed as on the list thus far being 2003’s air-combat game Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge.

The surprise announcement was made on stage by Phil Spencer at Microsoft’s Xbox E3 press briefing earlier tonight.
