    One of the pleasant surprises Microsoft had in store for E3 this year was the announcement of Xbox One backwards compatibility support for original Xbox games: Spencer was recently asked about its status and replied that it was “close, we’re really close.” However, only two games, Crimson Skies and Fuzion Frenzy, have been confirmed so far.

    Spencer remains confident that the feature will be out before the end of the year, as planned. "Oh yeah," he said about his certainty of a 2017 launch. He also teased that there are still details about backwards compatibility will work on Xbox One X that have yet to be revealed: "There's some stuff we're going to talk about in that space in terms of how compatibility's going to work on [Xbox One] X specifically that I think people will find pretty interesting.

    What games are people excited for? I'm not being sarcastic. Just curious as all of the original Xbox games I enjoyed have been remastered or re-released.

    Be nice, Microsoft is finally coming into the "retro" feeling. It's their first time.
