13 Original Xbox games will be playable on Xbox One starting tomorrow

Leaked by an insider on Friday, Microsoft has finally confirmed that the first 13 original Xbox games that will be playable on Xbox One.

The following OG Xbox games will be playable on Xbox One starting tomorrow, October 24th: Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Ninja Gaiden Black, Dead To Rights, Psychonauts, Red Faction II, Fuzion Frenzy, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Crimson Skies, Sid Meier’s Pirates!, Bloodrayne, Grabbed By The Ghoulies, Black and The King of Fighters Neowave.

If you own the original Xbox game disc, pop it in your Xbox One and let it install. Now you can play your 2001 games! Several of these titles are downloadable for just $9.99 on Xbox Live.

This is just the start, of course. It is strange to see Microsoft launch this feature without Halo CE or Halo 2. Of course, you can play Halo CE Remastered and Halo 2 Remastered via The Master Chief Collection but still.

I’m hopeful for Silent Hill 4, Jet Set Radio Future and Shenmue II myself.
