Original Xbox listings surface ahead of Xbox One backward compatibility update

Microsoft is soon set to unveil a "big update" surrounding original Xbox backward compatibility for Xbox One, as a part of its monthly gaming news show, Inside Xbox. Set to air at 6:30 p.m. ET on April 10, many expect a new wave of compatible titles for the system, following an initial rollout late last year.

Although a few hours remain until an official announcement, new Xbox Marketplace listings have begun surfacing via the Xbox.com. New pages for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Destroy All Humans, MX Unleashed and Full Spectrum Warrior have been published, ahead of the impending announcement.

Similar leaks occurred leading up to the initial rollout of backward compatible titles, revealing three titles from the final lineup before an official announcement. With many of these games making their debut on digital storefronts, this is a likely a byproduct of preparing for online distribution beforehand.

There's a chance this isn't the final list of new titles hitting backward compatibility soon – many original Xbox titles are already listed on the Xbox Marketplace from the Xbox 360 era. Other previously-listed games could be on the way, alongside these new titles. For now, we'll have to wait for the full announcement.
