Microsoft updates Xbox 360 backwards compatibility

By on November 28, 2007, 2:26 PM
Continuing its support for backwards compatibility on the Xbox 360, Microsoft has announced a further 84 Xbox titles will now play on the console, bringing the complete list of original Xbox games which are playable on the Xbox 360 to 465.

New titles added to the list include Burnout 2: Point of Impact, Fight Night Round 3, The Chronicles of Narnia, Worms 3D, Blood Omen 2, and Freedom Fighters. You'll find a full list of compatible games over on Xbox.com.

The original Xbox games will now run in 720p and 1080i with anti-aliasing, with online games playable cross-platform between Xbox 360 and the original Xbox over Xbox Live. In addition, today's update increases the number of titles Microsoft will offer via the Xbox Originals program, which will enable Xbox 360 owners to download original Xbox titles from Xbox Live and play them without a disc. Each game will set you back 1200 Microsoft Points (or $15) when the service debuts on December 4.
