Xbox One backwards-compatibility expanding to original Xbox games

Phil Spencer announced today at Microsoft’s E3 press conference that a collection of original Xbox consoles will soon be playable on Xbox One consoles via its backwards-compatible functionality.

One of the first original Xbox games to become playable on Xbox One will be Zipper Interactive’s Crimson Skies, a 2000 aviation dogfighting game popular within the Xbox community. Microsoft promises to bring more Xbox games to their current console in the near future.

This announcement comes as a poignant statement, just days after Sony’s Jim Ryan spoke somewhat unfavorably about certain prior-generation games, exemplifying the company’s indifference for backwards-compatibility support.

Microsoft today officially revealed its 4K home console, the Xbox One X, along with a slew of exclusives coming to the Xbox One family of consoles.
