Archive for OG Xbox to One BC

Fusion Frenzy will be part of the lineup for OG Xbox BC.

We already had Crimson Skies, we knew that was coming, but now we have another title in Fusion Frenzy,  a 2001 Party game that had an assortment of mini-games akin to Mario Party and like games.  And they have confirmed that no new achievements will be added to these games either, no surprise.  I am excited by the possibility of OG Xbox backwards compatibility..but the first two games (which will be coming in the fall it looks like) do nothing for me.  Feel free to read more information at this link. 

Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility Coming to Xbox One!!

Sorry for not capturing this sooner, but alas some weekends with a 2 year old are rougher than others.  I’m surprised I’m not on my 3rd cup of coffee to be brutally honest.  Anyway, this article comes thanks to E3 and first covered by I will point out it is actually 386 games that are BC at the moment but if you follow my page, you would already know that.  Anyway, I do like this announcement but I’m not as excited as I thought I would be. Mainly because it will likely include no new achievements and more than likely mirror the old backwards compatible list that 360 had with the Original XBOX.  I’ll attach it here if you would like to peruse that and Crimson Skies was a part of that.

Anyway, I’ll have to think about how I’m going to represent those titles in my spreadsheet/table for this site.  I want to avoid using another column but at the same time, I need a proper way to note it for filtering and counting.  And I would rather not have another table to worry about.  We’ll wait until we get an official announcement of the first game or two before I figure it out for good.  Enjoy kids.
