Original Xbox Games will be Backwards Compatible with Xbox One

Microsoft announced original Xbox games will be backwards compatible with Xbox One during their E3 press conference.

Xbox chief Phil Spencer said the games will “look better and play better across the Xbox One family.” The first game confirmed is “Crimson Skies.”

Lead Marketing for Xbox, Albert Penello, wrote on Twitter, “Your original Xbox discs will work. Digital licenses will carry over. AND you can system-link play across all three generations.”

Original Xbox backwards compatible will be available later this year.
