Xbox One Backwards Compatibility will allow players to play their Xbox 360 games on their Xbox One, but what about original Xbox games? Well, nothing is for certain, but that feature could make its way to Xbox One one day.
A fan asked Xbox Head Phil Spencer what thought was a ‘silly question’ pertaining to original Xbox backwards compatibility. Turns out this question isn’t silly at all, and is something that Spencer asks his team all the time.
@HadleeSimons I don’t think it’s silly. I ask the BC team this question a lot. Need to finish 360 BC for now.

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility was announced at E3 2015 to thunderous applause. The feature is currently only available for members of the Xbox Preview Program, but will launch for every Xbox One owners this holiday season. Over 100 Xbox 360 and XBLA titles will be backwards compatible with more coming in the future. Who knows, perhaps we’ll see some original Xbox games someday soon.
