XBox One backwards compatibilty

Recommended Posts

This is great! The improvements are really nice. Some solid titles at launch. Hopefully Sega will get some love with the next few updates. Between Microsoft Game Studios, Sega, Tecmo, Bioware, the Splinter Cell series and a few other stellar 3rd party games, the OG Xbox is one of my favorite consoles of all time.

This is the game that blew me away during the PS2/Xbox era. It's pretty dated graphically, but gameplay is a masterpiece. Warning: Very difficult, learn to block\dodge and play in Ninja Dog mode for first run if you have to. (Just die three times at the start).

Yeah, I've finished the original so I've got an idea on what I'm getting into. Just kept putting off Black, but now that it's going to look even more crisp it seems like that waiting has paid off. :)

Same here, you could easily stick a hard drive in it and mod it. Great emulators etc. Loved the games with 720p/1080i, the list goes on and on..... :thumbsup:

Recompiling of some sort might be present.

Can't think of another obvious reason for why downloading would still be necessary for a retail copy of a game. So that means that any wishful thinking of the entire library being made BC in one fell swoop is out of the question.

 

Eurogamer put up a video about Xbox One backwards compatibility today. Apparently recompiling here is happening due to the need to convert the 32 bit x86 code of the original Xbox to 64 bit compatible x86 code for the Xbox One.

Where can I get a list of ORIGINAL Xbox games that work on the One?

 

Edit: Specifically looking for Playboy: The Mansion, but would like to check other titles too.

Well, disappointing that it's not bigger yet, but Microsoft is being more aggressive on this front than I would have predicted.

What would you want specifically? I'd like access to Capcom vs. SNK 2, myself, but it was never available for the Xbox 360 so I'm not hopeful it'll appear here.

The games in my collection now are as follows:

 

Aqua man

Batman Begins

Brute Force

Crimson Skies

Doom 3

Fable

From Russia With Love

MechAssault

Ninja Gaiden

LEGO Star Wars

Star Wars: kotor

Sudeki

Superman: TMOS

 

 

Naturally, I'd like those to work, though some of the quirkier ones I could understand not making the cut. There are also games I don't have but am open to picking up, such as Playboy or Simpsons: Road Rage.

Sudeki is such an awesome hidden gem RPG, IMO. The Sudeki soundtrack is amazing. Sudeki had a small but hardcore fan base for years after the game was released, that just adored the game. I remember they wrote a ton of Sudeki fan fiction back in the day.

Original Xbox backwards compatibility news of some sort is coming on April 10th.

 

 

https://twitter.com/majornelson/status/980839686515015680

 

https://majornelson.com/2018/04/02/inside-xbox-episode-2-debuts-on-april-10/

 

And godslabrat, Crimson Skies and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic were in the first wave. I'm assuming you know that and just included them since you're listing your entire collection of original Xbox games, but just in case you didn't, you're all set with at least two of them. :)

 

Many of these are unlikely, but here's my own wish list.

 

  • Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood
  • Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30
  • Capcom Classics Collection Volume 1
  • Capcom Classics Collection Volume 2
  • Colin McRae Rally 04
  • Colin McRae Rally 2005
  • Fatal Frame
  • Fatal Frame II
  • Midway Arcade Treasures (Several great games here that aren't on Origins, which is already BC)
  • Midway Arcade Treasures 2 (Ditto)
  • Midway Arcade Treasures 3 (MS seems to control Hydro Thunder, which hopefully isn't a roadblock)
  • Namco Museum: 50th Anniversary (Although Virtual Arcade for the 360 would be even better)
  • Outrun 2
  • Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast
  • Project Gotham Racing 2
  • Rallisport Challenge 2
  • Taito Legends
  • Taito Legends 2 (Euro release, but was region free)

 

And they're not musts, but I'd love to see Doom 3 and Half-Life 2. The former since I dislike some changes made with the remaster, and both because of how much they pushed the hardware back in the day.

 

Mostly as a curiosity, I'd get a kick out seeing just how close they are to the 360 versions when they're rendered in HD via emulation with the frame rates smoothed out. I bet visually they're not very far apart, especially Doom 3.

I'm hoping for some Sega love with Panzer Dragoon Orta, Gunvalkyrie, Otogi I & II and Shenmue II. Crazy Taxi 3 and the Outrun games would be cool, but CT3 has tons of licensed music and Outrun has Ferrari issues.

Oh, nice.. I was thinking about playing Morrowind soon. Now I know where I'll be playing it, haha. I agree as well, hopefully there are more to be announced.

 

*Edit: Actually, hmm.. The listing has a description for the GOTY edition, but box art for the original edition. I wonder if both editions will work.

Yeah, Atariboy, I'm pretty well set on getting an XB1 now. The last round of announcements sealed the deal for me.

That is awesome news. Panzer Dragoon Orta is probably the #1 I wanted to be compatible. GG, Microsoft.

I never thought those Star Wars games would come back ... especially the Jedi Knight games that used the Quake engine that didn't work on the 360. I don't think I kept my discs for those because of that (esp since they're also on PC). I might spring for digital copies because I'm a chump.

 

A great lineup. Panzer Dragoon Orta!!!

None of my wish list is there, but there are several that I'm still happy to see, including Panzer Dragoon Orta.

 

I wonder if region locking is lifted? I've been curious about Panzer Elite Action for a while and was going to import the PS2 disc, but this would be even better. Xbox 360 releases are region free on the Xbox One.

 

I might give it a try when I get a XB1 hopefully sometime soon. Panzer Elite Action is a very cheap game.

^^^^

Not any more! There are only two copies of Panzer Elite Action on eBay and they are both between $50-$60. Best to go digital on that title.

 

I'm ready! This is such a great feature. The graphic upgrades that Microsoft showed for some of these titles running on the Xbox One X look amazing.

I don't need it in the least, because I barely play my Xbox One, but this feature is making me want an X the moment I can find one for under $300. I will justify it in my mind by saying, "won't it be nice to lose that big power brick?"

I doubt it will be up in our digital store, considering it's a Euro exclusive.

 

I'd be importing from Europe though, which I do from time to time. I have almost 30 PAL PS2 releases for instance (And much smaller numbers for several other systems, including the region free Taito Legends 2 for the Xbox).

 

If it's also a bit pricey over there as well, I'll just revert to buying it for my PAL PS2 the next time I import some PAL games.

KOF Neowave didn't get a PAL release. Can people in PAL regions buy KOF Neowave digitally? Can't you switch regions when buying digital games on the Xbox and get around it that way?
