I remember Phil said he asked the BC team if they could do it, he never followed up.

The Xbox One architecture is closer to the original Xbox. I would love to see original Xbox games one day.

my theory is that it has a lot more to do with business reasons rather than technical reasons. They'd likely have to pay Nvidia some extra money to do it properly, since they didn't own the original Xbox hardware completely the way they do with the 360/One. And of course, there's way less of a demand for stuff from the original Xbox, in comparison to the Xbox 360.

I do not believe the last part is true at all. NGB, and KoToR would be huge, plus the OG Xbox had so many gems that people missed out on since it didnt sell as well as it should have.

I think one of the major reasons is because the OG Xbox emulator on the 360 was absolutely trash. There were so many bugs and performance issues that I almost feel like it'd make more sense just to remaster or even build a new emulator from scratch just for OG Xbox games.

Tried playing Halo: CE with my buddy a couple weeks ago on a 360 and had numerous, horrendous frame drops and slowdown. I honestly don't understand how MS thought releasing a game like that was considered passable.

I honestly would prefer remasters with Xbox Live support (achievements, mulitplayer, social features, etc.) and some visual improvements (even if it's just an up res) rather than a BC feature.

I truly hope the get on board at some point...... I have a decent amount of CAPCOM games that I'd love to be BC and play for the first time ever. Hell, my 360 might end up being a primarily CAPCOM focused machine at this rate.

Woof... I guess it's nice to get Contra but this is about the most "meh" lineup of games they could've put together.

I had a lot of great experiences with the 360's bc enjoying KOTOR 1 & 2, Fable, Morrowind, and Jade Empire to name a few. It wasn't perfect but I could handle the bumps along the way.

BC of the bc would be nice.

Roboblitz was a neat little character platformer while the size limit was still 50 mb for XBLA games. It had no business looking as good as it did. You're a little robo-guy. No footballs are involved.

On the original 360, they attached Nvidia's licensing fee to the hard drive. It's why the core unit didn't have BC unless you bought a hard drive, and why the hard drives were so stupidly expensive.

Just gotta be ready for some droughts due to complications with the emulation and licenses if that becomes the case! Especially with the bigger titles.

OK but really intesting that this is a one-time fee.

I assume everyone would be willing to pay lets say 10-20 USD/Eur as a one time licensing fee to enable BC for OG Xbox on Xbox One....

Same here. Original Xbox BC would be a huge selling point to me. 360 BC was what drew me back to Xbox and made me use the One regularly.

Not even remotely close to being that bad.

In fact, if you approach it from outside this fashionable hatred for SK or Denis Dyack, it is fairly playable.

One of the reasons I still have my 360. Also because of phantom dust being BC on 360 as well as Ninja Gaiden.

I would actually pay $100 for a remaster of Ninja Gaiden Black and 2 for Xbone.
