Click to read.Microsoft has released an initial list of Xbox games that will be supported for emulation on Xbox 360. We know Halo and Halo 2 will be featured (and it\'s rumored that they will sport some kind of extra buffs and/or graphical polish), but what else can we expect? Just to save you some time and alleviate your worries, we\'re glad to confirm the following titles are on the supported games list: Barbie Horse Adventures: Wild Horse Rescue, Circus Maximus, BMX XXX, and the entire Cabela\'s Xbox catalog. So you\'re pretty much covered.

Support for games will be downloaded to the Xbox 360 on a per-title basis. Because of hardware differences between Xbox and Xbox 360, the new system is not natively backwards compatible with Xbox games. Emulation of Xbox titles will require that users have the Xbox 360 hard drive add-on, which comes with the Ultimate bundle. Keep checking the Xbox website to see new titles as they are added.
