Enhanced versions of 13 original Xbox hits to drop on Xbox One

I got to play a four-player round of Crimson Skies, with me on the original Xbox, another person on an Xbox One X, another on an Xbox One S, and the fourth on a launch Xbox One. All are enhanced with 1080p resolution, higher and/or smoother framerates, and faster loading times.

First announced back at E3 2017, Microsoft showcased a new feature coming to Xbox One consoles: original Xbox backwards compatibility. Oblivion, and Assassin's Creed are all getting upgraded on the Xbox One X, some powerhouse games that helped defined the console generation. Microsoft will also give all of the games nine times their original pixels compared to the games on the original Xbox console.

You can see the full list of Xbox originals by checking out the gallery below. Also, remember that any online multiplayer aspects of these games are no longer available.

You can buy them all now.

Spanish aim to sack Catalonia leaders
The goal is 'the return to legality and the recovery of institutional normalcy, ' the prime minister said Friday. Catalonia's administration now runs its own policing, education and healthcare.

Playing the games will work similarly to playing existing backwards compatible Xbox 360 games: if you own the disc pop it in; if you own it digitally, it will automatically show up for download.

Likewise, numerous titles will be available to purchase from the Xbox store, which means you can download them directly to your Xbox One. For instance, games that supported system link play - such as Crimson Skies - will still support system link play. There will also be no Achievements for Original Xbox games because this functionality was also not originally available. What's more, it's perhaps easier and less time-consuming to make specific games backwards compatible rather than work with developers to remaster games (and whole series).

Since then it has added a number of titles on a monthly basis but based on fan feedback, the Xbox Engineering team will start to pilot a new way to launch Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles.
