Earlier in the year, Microsoft made the epic announcement that a select amount of games from the original Xbox console would be made playable on the Xbox One using an all new Backwards Compatibility feature.  Today, I’m happy to announce that feature is going to be activated very soon and here’s the official list of games you’ll be able to play on the Xbox One console.

  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
  • Crimson Skies: High Road To Revenge
  • Ninja Gaiden Black
  • Fusion Frenzy
  • Black
  • Psychonauts
  • Dead to Rights
  • BloodRayne 2
  • Red Faction II
  • Sid Meier’s Pirates!
  • Grabbed by the Ghoulies
  • The King of Fighters Neowave
  • Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

It’s a little sad the original Halo or Halo 2 isn’t on the list but I’m sure they’re still under consideration. Players will be able to play these games on the Xbox One using either the original game discs or they can purchase the games digitally on the Xbox Store. Why upgrade?  Well, Microsoft made this video comparison showing the difference between how Knights of the Old Republic plays on the Xbox One S vs how it looked on the original Xbox.

System Link in each game will work fine with any other consoles the game is backwards compatible with, however Xbox Live functionality on those games were discontinued back in 2010 and because of that you won’t be able to play the games online.
