The 10 original Xbox games we want to play on Xbox One

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has now discussed original Xbox backward compatibility a bit more, revealing that it won't be quite as ambitious as Xbox 360 BC.

You can check out the entire video below as Spencer sits down with Giant Bomb to discuss all things Xbox One X, but here are some of the cliff notes to the backwards compatibility mission that was left out of the presentation.

KitGuru Says: While Forza 7 coming to PC isn't much of a surprise, especially after seeing Forza Horizon 3 land on the platform, it is still nice to see Microsoft supporting PC.

Ultimately though, what Microsoft did at this year's E3 was give a more compelling reason to buy an Xbox One S; given it's cheaper, and can play all the games that newfangled $499 console can.

That PC-style scaling doesn't necessarily mean console gamers will get fine control over graphical options in their Xbox games, though.

Timing is everything within the world of console releases, it can even ruin a company if they get it wrong. Microsoft made it known that the Xbox One X will be the smallest Xbox yet, Express reported. "I do think we need to lose the cords at some point, we're a few years from that", he said.

Current Xbox One console owners will be glad to know that the Xbox One X will be compatible with all of their existing accessories. We'll sell more S's than X's because the price point is important to a lot of people. All of the best Xbox One games are also available for the PC, so building a PC instead is certainly a viable option. There's no accounting for optimization of each individual game, and any PC gamer will tell you that some games just come up short in terms of performance, but the concept here is very solid. Microsoft's latest release has taken things one step forward.

While it hasn't been announced one way or the other, we can probably not expect any cross-play for Dragon Ball FighterZ.

In other words, Taykey said that Nintendo perhaps generated more buzz because there were so many games that fans were excited about and could interact with. We didn't get get any hint on how numerous original Xbox games would be coming to the program, but Spencer said to Giant Bomb after the show that "It won't be as big as Xbox 360, I'll tell people that".
