Tomorrow (October 24th) we’ll be able to download and play some OG Xbox games on Xbox One. The first batch of compatible games has been announced. You can check out the full list below:
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
- Ninja Gaiden Black
- Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge
- Fuzion Frenzy
- Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
- Dead to Rights
- Grabbed by the Ghoulies
- Sid Meier’s Pirates!
- Red Faction II
- BloodRayne 2
- The King of Fighters Neowave
If you happen to have any of the above games lying around in their physical disc form then you’re good to go. Otherwise you’ll be able to buy digital copies from the Xbox store.
Unfortunately there are no achievements being added to older games, though they will have improved frame rates as well as a nice bump in resolution to a full 1080p. Most games from the OG Xbox era were 480, so it’s a massive improvement. Also, games will load a little quicker, too, which is a pleasant bonus.
