Microsoft’s Backward Compatibility project for the Xbox One has been a smashing success, with literally hundreds of Xbox 360 titles make their way to the company’s latest consoles. The program is a tremendous boon to Microsoft’s console business, as any Xbox 360 owner can feel comfortable at least some of their investment will carry over with the purchase of a shiny new Xbox One or Xbox One S.

Apparently, Microsoft could possible make the Backward Compatible list even longer at some point, but adding in the ability to run original Xbox titles. The word comes from Xbox chief Phil Spencer on Twitter:

Of course, that “like to find the time” bit isn’t all that encouraging for anyone looking to bring their Xbox one titles over anytime soon. However, if you have a stack of games sitting idle, then there’s hope–and that’s better than nothing at all. Let us know in the comments if you have any original Xbox titles you’d like to play on your Xbox One S.
