Xbox 360 backwards compatability

http://www.gadgetspy.co.uk/2005/11/1...-compatibility

The XBox 360 has always promised backwards compatibility with software sold for the XBox. It†ƒÂ¢Ã¢Â€ÂžÃ‚¢s now been announced that the compatibility will be available ready for the UK launch date.


To start with, the new console will play 200 of the original Xboxâ₠™s games including - Halo 1 & 2, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic and all the Grand Theft Auto series. Support will be gradually added to the rest of the old Xboxâ₠™s catalogue, ultimately leading to all first gen Xbox games working on the 360.

The behind-the-scenes magic is based entirely on software. To play the old games on the new console you†™ll need to download a software patch which MicrosoftÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šà ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s doing directly through Xbox Live, via CD burning on a computer hooked up to Xbox.com or by a CD in the post.

The XBox 360 is due for public purchase on December 2nd, 2005 in the UK. Amazon.co.uk are offering the premium edition for £279.99 delivered at the moment. Or you could opt for the cut-down ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬à …â€œCoreââà ¢Â€ÂšÃ‚¬? system at just £209.99.

You can read more about the compatibility over at xbox.com.



Halo 2 online, halo 2 online...
