These are the first 13 original Xbox titles coming to Xbox One backwards compatibility


Microsoft has revealed the first 13 original Xbox games coming to the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility program.

The games will be available starting tomorrow, Oct. 24, on the Xbox One, according to IGN. If you own the game, you can play it right away, but a bulk of them are being offered on the Xbox Live store for $9.99. The games are enhanced with 1080p resolution, higher/smoother framerates, and faster load times.

The 13 titles available now are 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, Psychonauts, Dead to Rights, Black, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, Sid Meier’s Pirates!, Red Faction II, BloodRayne 2, and The King of Fighters Neowave.

Original Xbox backwards compatibility was first announced at this year’s E3, and these titles are just the first wave of old games coming to the platform.

“A curated list of key games was the way to go with this,” Xbox platform lead Bill Stillwell told IGN about future backwards compatibility titles. What games come next are up in the air as of now, because a lot of the old game’s publishers simply don’t exist anymore or the contracts are missing because they weren’t done digitally.
