We are pleased to announce that the next episode of Inside Xbox will air Tuesday, April 10 at 3:30 p.m. PDT / 6:30 p.m EDT, and while we can’t reveal all our goodies just yet, we hope the video above will whet your Xbox appetite.

One of our most common requests is for Original Xbox Backward Compatibility news, and we’ll be starting off the show with a big update on just that.

the "big reveal" is tonight at 6:30 PM EST, however a few original Xbox games have leaked onto the Xbox One marketplace, among them Morrorwind!

I look forward to seeing what the full reveal is. Last time MS did this we got a dozen original Xbox titles at once.

As someone who loves the original Xbox's backwards compatibly on the Xbox One (they play and look great), I hope they were not all the games we are getting. Sure Morrowind is great, but more Xbox exclusives is where it's at.

I would have been excited about this, but the game has inverted controls that you can't change.

I feel like this was a rather solid dump of new-old games...

ORIGINAL XBOX GAMES RELEASING ON APRIL 17:
Blinx: The Time Sweeper
Breakdown
Conker: Live & Reloaded
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
Hunter: The Reckoning
Jade Empire
Panzer Dragoon Orta
SSX 3

ORIGINAL XBOX GAMES RELEASING ON APRIL 26:
Destroy All Humans!
Full Spectrum Warrior
Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction
MX Unleashed
Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory (Europe only)
Star Wars: Battlefront
Star Wars: Battlefront II
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
Star Wars: Republic Commando

...Morrowind and Panzer Dragoon Orta are the two biggies for me here. As a reminder, Orta has the original Panzer Dragoon as an unlockable as well.

I've heard good things about Jade Empire, but I don't really know much about it. SSX3 is def a good game, although the SSX reboot that came later is probably my preferred game. Maybe not, though.

Anyway, all those Star Wars titles are icing on the cake for sure.

Oh geez, I don't remember that, that does put a damper on it lol.

Noise, Jade Empire is great! Do you like those types of games, it's very "of that era" like KOTOR and other Bioware titles of the time.
