All of the original Xbox games have been enhanced to play at a resolution of 1080p.

The newly launched commercial gives an impression into the titles coming up on the console including "Forza Motorsport 7", "Super Lucky's Tale", and "Minecraft". It was teased yesterday on Xbox Wire and has now made its global release on the Xbox YouTube channel. There's also a visual comparison of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic below.

Microsoft is using the same technique in its emulation of original Xbox games on Xbox One.

Microsoft confirmed at E3 2017 that the Xbox One will get support for some original Xbox games. Halo 3, Assassin's Creed, Fallout 3, and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will all include tweaks that push the on-screen pixels to nine times more. There will also be no Achievements for Original Xbox games because this functionality was also not originally available.

Reddit users also found the same lineup above via leaked listings, although user Krvavi_Abadas notes that the pages in which these games appear are unfinished, and their interaction with the Xbox One ecosystem either goes nowhere or invokes a glitch.

There is no timeline for when backwards compatible games will be playable, but since games have started appearing, it should not be too much longer. You can play multiplayer games with these titles across console types, but only in System Link mode.

Like backwards compatible Xbox 360 games, one simply needs to insert an Xbox game disk into the Xbox One.
