Xbox One Could Eventually Be Backward Compatible With Original Xbox Games

Damn, Microsoft is really rubbing it in Sony’s face, isn’t it? First they announce that a hundred Xbox 360 games will be playable by the end of this year on Xbox One, and now it looks like they could be taking the feature even further. While the backward compatibility feature isn’t available yet, that hasn’t stopped people from asking Phil Spencer where else this could potentially go.

When asked by a curious fan on twitter whether or not original games may become backward compatible with Xbox One, Xbox boss Phil Spencer replied with the following:

“I don’t think it’s silly. I ask the BC team this question a lot. Need to finish 360 BC for now.”

This would be friggin’ awesome if they went through with this, as it would be great to be able to play all of the classic original Xbox games without having to whip out the original console. Hell, I just recently had to do that to replay Shenmue II, but you best believe it would have been sweet if I could have played it on Xbox One!
