Original Xbox games will soon be backwards compatible on Xbox One

As expected, Microsoft is continuing its backwards compatibility push for the Xbox One family of consoles. In fact, the company that Bill Gates built even had a big announcement pertaining to the games of yesteryear during today’s E3 2017 press conference.

If you’re one of the folks who’s been pining for the ability to play original Xbox games on your Xbox One, then you’re in luck. Today’s announcement guaranteed that vocal group that such titles are coming down the pipeline, and will be available later this year.

Although few details were shared pertaining to this addition, Microsoft did reveal that Crimson Skies will be one of the games that will become playable on the Xbox One. Not only that, but the game — and those that join it — will look and play better on today’s modern hardware.
