During E3 2017 Microsoft made an extraordinary announcement that there would be support for original Xbox Games on the Xbox One including the already confirmed Xbox 360 game support. The list of current Xbox 360 games is past 385 games and it looks like it will continue to grow. But will the lineup of OG Xbox games be as big? It’s “too early to say,” according to Microsoft’s Dave McCarthy, but it sounds like it will not be.
While at E3 2017 Microsoft only talked about Crimson Skies and Fuzion Frenzy. However, they did say there are more games up and running.
“We have multiple games up and running–we just decided to tease the first one[s],” McCarthy explained. “There will be a library of games available, for sure.”
Xbox boss Phil Spencer confirmed earlier this month that the line up of Original Xbox games would be smaller than that of Xbox 360 games.
“Phil is really good for this, in terms of audacious challenges we give the team,” McCarthy said. “It fits nicely into our compatibility story–games will play great across all our lineup. They’ll play best on Xbox One X. It kind of fit the whole vibe that we were trying to get in terms of choice for our customers. It is going to be a big program for us.”
The OG Xbox backward compatibility program for Xbox One launches later this year. Are there any games that you are wanting to see!
