The issue of whether the Xbox 360 will be able to play original Xbox games has dragged on for so long now that, quite frankly, it?s getting a little boring.
Microsoft has confirmed a certain level of backwards compatibility, though details have been thin on the ground to say the least. Throwing some light on the question today are our women hating soon-for-jail-loner friends over at UKR
who found this little gem buried amongst paperwork in their in-tray.
It?s a marketing brochure from Microsoft, reproduced in full to the right of this story and, as you can see, a hard drive will be required to play Xbox games on your 360. Exactly why this is the case is not clear, though we?re guessing that each game will require some sort of custom download from Live.
So have a peruse through the images and feel free to point out any other pertinent information in the forum below.
