Original Xbox games coming to Xbox One via backwards compatibility

UPDATE: Original Xbox discs will work.

UPDATE 12TH JUNE: You didn't throw away your old Xbox discs did you?! Quick, go find them in your local time-warp video game store, because old Xbox discs will work in Xbox Ones. Not only that but digital licenses will carry over and you can system-link across all three generations of console too.

ORIGINAL STORY 11TH JUNE: Microsoft has announced original Xbox games are coming to Xbox One as part of an extension of the backwards compatibility feature.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer took to the stage during Microsoft's E3 2017 media briefing to announce Crimson Skies as the first OG Xbox game to come to Xbox One.

Spencer said OG Xbox games will run better on Xbox One, as you'd expect. The service rolls out later in 2017.
