Microsoft announces rush of backwards compatible games for Xbox One

Microsoft has given Xbox One backwards compatibility another boost, with a new wave of some of the best OG Xbox games.

Upon checking, it hasn't hit the Australian store yet, but hopefully it will overnight.

Thanks to the Xbox Marketplace, it may have slipped that four Original Xbox games may be coming to the Xbox One very soon. Should these games be included in its catalogue, it will bring the total number of original Xbox backward compatible games to almost twenty.

If there's one thing you can not criticise Microsoft for it's their support for backwards compatibility.

You'll be able to play all of these games on Xbox One through the disc you already own, or you can purchase them digitally in the Microsoft Store. It launched with 13 titles including Crimson Skies, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Fuzion Frenzy, and a few more.

If that wasn't enough, Microsoft is also buffing a number of Xbox 360 games with Xbox One X support, including Darksiders, Gears of War 2, Sonic Generations, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Portal 2, and Red Dead Redemption.

The list has some great names, but the most prominent among those has to be Elder Scrolls Morrowind, which was a revolutionary open world game that set the ball rolling for the whole series ahead.
