Nineteen Original Xbox Games are coming to Backwards Compatibility! (I don’t have enough exclamation marks)

Late yesterday, we got a very awesome announcement of NINETEEN original Xbox games being added to backwards compatibility.  They will be released in waves, first eight on April 17th (next Tuesday), and then another eleven on April 26th (the following Thursday).  Among them besides a ton of Star Wars, we get gems like Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Jade Empire, Destroy All Humans!, and Panzer Dragoon Orta.  The nice part is I own a lot of these (Breakdown, Morrowind, Jade Empire, etc).

One of the ones I would want to own is Panzer Dragoon, but that goes for pretty rough prices on Ebay.  If it is $10 digitally, I will certainly opt for that.  Heck, I might opt for the digital package of Morrowind if it includes all of the DLC (just so I don’t have to mess with the disc).  The full list is below, I’ll be updating the spreadsheet later today but this announcement is certainly the best of the year so far.  Enjoy!
