Achievements & Widescreen TVs Won’t Be Supported By Most Backwards Compatible Xbox Games

Hope you weren't hoping for achievements & widescreen TV support.

The time has arrived. Original Xbox games will become backwards compatible. What could be bad about that, you get to play your childhood favourites on your Xbox One, reminiscing about the good ol' days? Well, unfortunately original Xbox games won't support modern features such as achievements and widescreen TVs.

Phil Spencer's announcement that original Xbox games would be playable is great news, for sure. However, you can't teach an old dog new tricks, as each game relies upon its original code, so I hope you weren't hoping for some sweet nostalgia in the form of achievements.

"Most OGXbox games didn't have [widescreen]," Spencer explained when the question arose on Twitter. "Can't really easily change the frame buffer aspect ratio on a shipped game from [backwards compatibility]"

 

 

"We run the OG code, so the game will support what the original game supported" Spencer explained in another tweet. I hope you weren't looking forward to new Xbox Live achievements either as that would mean every single game would need to be patched.

 

 

 

While the service will support fewer games than Xbox 360 titles, Microsoft is considering other additions, such as the ability to run a separate Live login for classic Xbox games. At this moment in time, only Crimson Skies and Fuzion Frenzy are the only Xbox games confirmed to have backwards compatibility, but I'm sure that list will grow in time.

Will you be replaying some classics on your Xbox One? Let us know below!
