Next wave of backward compatible original Xbox games are coming Spring 2018

Xbox One X 4K game assets Alpha update

Microsoft also confirmed IGN's list and also claimed that the next assortment of original Xbox games with Xbox One backward compatibility is expected to land next spring.

The announcement says that these select titles will run at higher resolutions, 9X the original pixel count as well as expanded color details.

Microsoft will bring free Xbox One X enhancements to four Xbox 360 games playable through Xbox Backward Compatibility. Xbox One X is a great addition to the Xbox family which will be available at $500 in the US.

You can see that the leak was more or less spot on, and according to gematsu, Black has also been added to the list. Online multiplayer is not supported, however, as servers for original Xbox games were shut down years ago. The Xbox One backward compatible version looks very similar to how the game plays on a PC, which is excellent (and expected). Many of these games can also be purchased from the Xbox Store in digital form for $9.99.

How excited are you for OG Xbox backwards compatibility? Starting October 24, you'll be able to use your already-existing discs (if you've held onto them this long) or download more than a dozen OG Xbox games directly to your modern-day console. While these games will not receive a complete visual overhaul, they are all now compatible with 1080p screens. System Link multiplayer still works, though, for those of you who want to relive the days of old LAN parties.

Over the weekend, an image circulated on social media showing more original Xbox titles that could be part of an initial launch. Basically, you can have players on the original Xbox, Xbox One, and Xbox One X face each other in old-school LAN parties.
