At this year’s E3 keynote, Microsoft got a big round of applause from the audience when it announced that original Xbox games would become backwards compatible with the Xbox One.

At the time Microsoft only mentioned Crimson Skies and Fuzion Frenzy and there’s been much speculation since with regards to the initial list of original Xbox games that would work on Xbox One.

Oddly, some of the biggest games released on the original Xbox such as Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Project Gotham Racing, Forza Motorsport and Fable are absent from this list.
