Eggplante breaks down how original Xbox games could in fact run on the Xbox One with the newly announced backwards compatibility. Microsoft commented, saying it is technically feasible, but has no plans to go forward with it at this time.
Not only are 360 game BC on x1 but it's possible for xbox games as well (though it probably won't happen)! I really tip my hat off to MS. It was revealed earlier that the emulator is running on W10. So it could possible on PCs in the future (for both xbox and 360 games). MS really have outdone themselves. I can't imagine what might have happened had the x1 been revealed with everything it has now (or the promise of these features) Everything would have played out differently from that gawd awful 2013 reveal and DRM bs.
* Crimson Skies * Blood Wake * Deathrow Three of the best multiplayer games ever created, and LITERALLY almost nobody went back and even copies these formulas. * Crimson Skies = All different planes, most fun online multiplayer I've ever played. * Blood Wake - Similar to Crimson, but with boats. Each boat was different with different stats, abilities, and guns, local multiplayer was awesome. * Deathrow - Sports/ RPG hybrid,. Teams of 4v4 try to throw a disc into the goal of other team. * The catch ? - There is melee combat and you beat the crap out of the other team to get the disc from them, and there are various strategies. - Also, each team starts with 4 different characters, and you unlock 8 more as you go, per team. - All characters had different stats, look & ablities so you they all felt different. * Each team had it's own 10-12 characters, & their own homer stadium. 3 amazing multiplayer games, that I would buy day 1 if we got them on XB1.
@kraenk12 If BC was cut from PS3 because not many people used it, why have sony created PSNow? Why spend $Millions on something that not many people want to use?
Yeah BC was cut out for future plans of selling games through PSN and PSNow
If the rumors are true about 360 emulation on Win 10, I'm sure the PC community could help with that. Problem is the original Xbox used Nvidia and there are some bugs running it on AMD. They did do it on 360, but it had bugs.
I doubt MS could do it officially. It would probably cut into Steam sales for the publishers. I wouldn't doubt the emulation community tears apart the X1 emulation to make one for the PC though.
Probably even easier than X360 BC. The original Xbox was an X86 platform, much like X1. Should be REALLY easy.
It's not quite that simple, the architecture is still different, and they still need to emulate the environment well otherwise you will have frame problems or artifacts. I mean our PCs are X64 (backwards compatible with X86), yet Xbox emulation is still extremely buggy. When ever your dealing with hardware that isn't 100% exactly the same as the original you will always have to emulate/Virtual Machine the other software.
Still, they seem to have done a great job of it.
its not so simple, but ms has the documents and everything they need to know to make emulation that much easier. they could also hire those guys dedicated to emulation to make it happen. could also make it xompatible with windows 10 since they seem to be dedicated to gaming and can help with an xbox store on windows 10
Shenmue 2 Xbox BC with X1 :o
Now wouldn't that be interesting :P I also imagine quite a few copies of Shenmue 2 being sought after if it happened.
This is what I'm waiting for lol. If they do original Xbox I'll grab this system in a heart beat. Shenmue 2 Simpsons Hit and run Black Many more so many classics!
Hell, I still have Hulks ultimate destruction that I would love to play on my xb1!!!!!
I would probally buy an X1 if they add OG Xbox BC so I can't play ultimate D.O.A 2,Brute Force,and NFL 2K5
Whoa you beat me to it... That really would be cool..
God I love the Original xbox dashboard!!
Wouldn't mind playing some of the old original xbox games, especially using new controller.
Well if window 10 can emulate x360 with full functionality, and x360 already have an emulator to ran origins xbox, I don't see why not? Playing an emulator on an emulator? Genius. Phantom dust Panza dragoon orta If only they add Otogi 1 & 2
problem is that the original servers for the original xbox online games are shut down. still would be cool for single player games, but maybe microsoft dont want any problems of complaining cust with online
Cutting Bc on the ps3 later into it's life cycle made sense last generation. But this time around its different, There is not that big a gap in graphic fidelity. Last generation we had SD to HD which is a huge difference. This generation developers are repackaging their games with a new coat of paint and it's getting to be pretty ridiculous in my opinion.
xbox to this gen can improve stuff, but we kinda got remakes or remasters or pc ports to make anything worth while. pretty much same as ps2 but thats been proven on pc to be easy to emulate. i dont personally care about remasters or emulation. i probably would have to buy it again if i wanted to, or i could easily ignore it. its a shame console players are not as flexible as pc players but i am used to it.
I would love og xbox games on my xboxone. I still have 2 games that I haven't played advent rising bein one of them. I would love to have ps2 and ps1 games on my ps4 I do not want to hookup my ps2 and use wired controllers if I don't have to. And my phat ps3 is 8 or 9 years old this year. Yoy it is a ticking time bom before I have to get a slim and eliminate my ps2 backwards compatibility.
One issue that would prevent it is that they would have to emulate the Nvidia graphics card and software that ran the original xbox. If I'm not mistaken that could mean that they would have to pay a fee to Nvidia.
og xbox is definitely possible on xbone if they tried, the end question is if they are bothered. og xbox emulators on pc is rare because the community isnt too big so ms cant just buy code of those guys, sony could easily buy psone and ps2 emulators and get them to program for ps4. backwards compatibility doesnt make enough money for these companies. they rather release a remaster for atleast $15 each title instead pf a classic $5-10. anyway, its not worth it. which xbox og game hasnt been released on any other console or pc that is worth playing now? halo series got rereleased on xbone. shenmue 2 had a definitive but dodgy us dub. ng got released as ng sigma on ps3 but not as good as black(?), cant even name anymore games.
That would be awesome to be able to play XOriginal on XB1.. but sadly all of my XOriginal games are gone.
I don't care if they have to build an emulator that allows an emulator to run another emulator as long as I can play the copy of KOTOR I still have.
This is really cool, if MS comes thru with this I'll be forced to buy an X1. This gen is looking really from now on!
I loved my original Xbox to death
Let me play Deathrow and Gladius again. Apparently I am the only one to play these games..
