OG Xbox Backwards Compatibility Detailed, Second Game Announced

By Claudio Barata,
One of the biggest headlines to come out of E3 is the OG Xbox backwards compatibility announcement, starting with Crimson Skies. Microsoft waited until its second Xbox Daily show to announce a second game to be available when OG Back Compat hits later this year: Fuzion Frenzy.

Fuzion Frenzy

Fuzion Frenzy was a launch title on the original Xbox in 2001 and featured 22 game modes in 45 different mini-games. The sequel, Fuzion Frenzy 2, launched in 2007. Fuzion Frenzy has a Metacritic score of 70 and an average user score of 6.9.


Furthermore, in the interview with Major Nelson, Bill Stillwell has expressed the commitment to bring forward playing all three generations of Xbox games through emulation and specified that the Pentium III processor on the original Xbox is an x86 processor as well, with some of the same capabilities as the new, much more recent Xbox One Jaguar SoC (which also uses an x86 instruction set) and that the initial prototype was already tested by "system-linking" with an Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Bill Stillwell also explained that the backwards compatibility works similarly to the Xbox 360 backwards compatibility. Players who own the original game can just insert the disc and the game will be digitally downloaded, players that own the digital versions will just be able to download it and play.

Original Xbox backwards compatibility is coming later this year.
