The title says it all. One of Microsoft’s biggest announcements at today’s Xbox One conference wasn’t a new game, it was that games from the original Xbox will be backwards compatible on the Xbox One and Xbox One X later this year.

The first title announced for the service is the truly excellent Crimson Skies: Road to Revenge, a rollicking flight combat game. Nothing else has been said thus far – and it’s unclear whether these titles will be updated with achievements – but hopefully more games will be announced soon.
