Matt Sayer 24 October 2017 NEWS


The original Xbox games will be enhanced with better performance and support for 1080p resolution.

As promised back at this year's E3, Microsoft is adding an extra layer of backwards compatibility to Xbox One with the ability to play original Xbox games on the console. Today, Microsoft has revealed the first 13 games to be playable as part of the backwards-compatible initiative, and all of them will be available to play from tomorrow if you own the original game in disc or digital form.

Here are the games:

  • Black
  • BloodRayne 2
  • Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge
  • Dead to Rights
  • Fuzion Frenzy
  • Grabbed by the Ghoulies
  • Ninja Gaiden Black
  • Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
  • Psychonauts
  • Red Faction II
  • Sid Meier’s Pirates!
  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
  • The King of Fighters Neowave

Each game has been upgraded with support for 1080p resolution along with faster and smoother framerates plus quicker loading times. System Link multiplayer remains intact, too, with the ability to play against your friends on any system within the Xbox family, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Xbox One X included.

The folks over at IGN got to test out a few of the games ahead of tomorrow's launch, and they put together some comparison videos showing off the improvements over the original Xbox versions. Check the videos out below:
