List of Backwards Compatible Xbox Games Leaked Out

Xbox boss Phil Spencer promised backwards compatibility to the original Xbox during E3 2017 and it is expected before the end of the year. In fact, Reddit user /u/HiPanda123 noticed that the product pages for some titles have already begun appearing online. However, these pages are not complete yet and have broken links. Most likely because it is not official yet. To lend credence to these assumptions, Twitter user @h0x0d has posted the image above showing cover art of the older titles. He is well known as a reliable leaker of Microsoft information so the photo is most likely from an upcoming promotional art material.

Backwards Compatible Xbox Games List
Here is a list of the games from that image:
- Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2003)
- Dead to Rights (2002)
- Red Faction II (2003)
- Fuzion Frenzy (2002)
- King of Fighters Neowave (2006)
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (2003)
- Ninja Gaiden Black (2004)
- Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge (2003)
- Sid Meier’s Pirates! (2004)
- Psychonauts (2005)
- Grabbed by the Ghoulies (2003)
It will be interesting how these older games adapt to the Xbox One. They lack official widescreen support for example. One thing that Spencer has confirmed howeer, is that these older games will not have Achievements.
UPDATE: October 23
The official Xbox YouTube channel has now begun uploading comparison videos showing the enhancements from some of the original games to the new Xbox One version. The first is Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, with other titles expected to follow.
