13 Xbox Games Coming to Xbox One October 24
One of the more eye-catching surprises from Microsoft's E3 press conference was the announcement of backwards compatibility between the Xbox and the Xbox One. Today, the company announced the first 13 original Xbox games coming to the Xbox Marketplace -- all of which will be playable starting tomorrow, October 24.
Here's the list of available games:
- BloodRayne 2
- Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge
- Dead to Rights
- Fuzion Frenzy
- Grabbed by the Ghoulies
- Ninja Gaiden Black
- Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
- Red Faction 2
- Sid Meier’s Pirates!
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
- The King of Fighters Neowave
These will be rendered in 1080p resolution, have vastly improved framerates, and of course, provide gamers with faster loading times.
If you own the physical disc for any of these games, the disc should work in your Xbox One. And in the case of original Xbox games that were previously re-released for Xbox 360, digital copies of those games will transfer over as well.
For those of you that don’t already own any of these titles, many of them will be available for $9.99 through the Xbox Marketplace.
