    Original Xbox games are coming to the latest console. Microsoft announced backward compatibility for games from its first console coming sometime later this year. “Our team of engineers are working hard to bring some of your original favorite Xbox games to Xbox One today,” Phil Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s Xbox division, announced at the company’s E3 2017 keynote.

    “OG games will look better and play better across the Xbox One family,” Spencer promised, name-checking a personal favorite in the process, Crimson Skies. Spencer had hinted as far back as 2015 that backward compatibility for the first Xbox could be a possibility. Xbox One introduced backward compatibility with Xbox 360 games in November 2015, though the games must be readied for backward compatibility before they are added to the library.
