Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Could Include Original Xbox Games
Recent comments by Phil Spencer suggest that the Xbox One's backwards compatibility could one day include games from the original Xbox console.
Xbox head Phil Spencer is no stranger to interacting with his company's fan base on social media, and a recent Tweet led to some interesting information. In an exchange on Twitter (courtesy of GameSpot), Spencer revealed that he has been asking his development teams about making the original Xbox library compatible for the Xbox One.
"Very silly question, but if Xbox One essentially has Xbox 360 emulator, how much work would go into making original Xbox titles backwards compatibility?" a fan asked.
"I don't think it's silly. I ask the backwards compatibility team this question a lot. Need to finish 360 backwards compatibility for now," Spencer replied.
Obviously, their primary concern when it comes to backwards compatibility is expanding the number of Xbox 360 titles to be playable on the Xbox One, including as many must-play titles from that generation as possible. The actual backwards compatible service will hit Xbox One consoles this November, and the company will have over 100 playable games from the 360 ready when it launches. Starting in November, every Xbox 360 Games With Gold release will be backwards compatible. There are plenty of classic Xbox games we'd love to see work on our current-gen console.
