    Microsoft have yet to list the games that will be backwards compatible

    We aint far off from the 360, so in the next few months, here's hoping they reveal which will be playable on 360

    I have a feeling Halo 2 (and maybe 1) will creep in there ;)

    Every game will work if you have a hard drive remember so if youve ordered the core package. No backward compatibility

    Not every game will work though as the Xbox 360 is running Xbox games through emulation. Even the PS2, which uses actual PS chips couldn't run all PSone games, some like Mortal Kombat Trilogy didn't work. However, 99% did.

    The Xbox 360's emulator will no doubt run most games but not all will run perfectly hence the need for emulation profiles which are stored on the hard drive. Newer ones will no doubt be given free over Xbox Live and in time the majority of the game will run. However, I wouldn't rely on all games working at launch, not until Microsoft officially say otherwise. So far they've said that only "top-selling" games will be compatible...
