Original Xbox Games Are Coming to Xbox One

Microsoft is selling the Xbox One X as the "world's most powerful console". As such, Xbox 360 games in the program will be displayed at higher resolutions when played on Xbox One X.

Original Xbox classics join more than 400 Xbox 360 games in the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program, which also means we'll have our largest console launch portfolio ever when Xbox One X releases on November 7. Oblivion, and Assassin's Creed are all getting upgraded on the Xbox One X, some powerhouse games that helped defined the console generation. This is done using the Heutchy Method-named after the Microsoft engineer who developed it-which is also used to play improved versions of original Xbox games on Xbox One. The first original Xbox games arrive via Xbox One Backward Compatibility tomorrow, October 24.

Found in the Games On Demand section of Xbox.com, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Prince of Persia, Neowave: The King of Fighters, and more are available.

On the plus side, system link multiplayer is available across different Xbox systems. If you want to revisit one of these games (Knights of the Old Republic anyone?) you will be able to purchase a copy from the Xbox Store digitally for $9.99. While these games will not receive a complete visual overhaul, they are all now compatible with 1080p screens.

A player was approached by bookie, confirms Najam Sethi
Earlier it was reported that Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmad was approached by a bookie for match-fixing which he turned down. The man who approached Sarfraz and the Pakistani skipper an offer is based in Dubai and is known to most of the players.

You can access the games by inserting the original discs and waiting for the titles to install. The feature might be ready to launch as some original Xbox backward compatible games have now surfaced in the online games marketplace for Xbox.

Since then it has added a number of titles on a monthly basis but based on fan feedback, the Xbox Engineering team will start to pilot a new way to launch Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles.

It's similar to how Xbox 360 emulation works on the Xbox One right now.
