Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility Now Live on Xbox One

Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility Now Live on Xbox One

Select original Xbox games can now be played on your Xbox One, via backwards compatibility. If you still have them, you can insert and play with your original discs. You can also purchase them digitally.

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

While you’ll see some visual improvements, most of these games still run in a 4:3 aspect ratio, with lower resolution textures. You won’t be able to play these games online, as original Xbox Live support was discontinued years ago ago – but you can still play local multiplayer.

Don’t expect games to be added with any amount of frequency though. Unlike the Xbox 360 initiative, the next set of original games will arrive in autumn 2018.
