One of the Xbox One's greatest advantages is its backwards compatibility.
As reported by IGN, the enhancements will trickle down to the vaunted Xbox 360 backward compatibility program too.

System Link multiplayer still works, though, for those of you who want to relive the days of old LAN parties.
Some of the games included in Xbox One's planned backward compatibility with original Xbox titles have been unofficially named via leaks, suggesting Dead to Rights, King of Fighters: Neowave, and a lot more will be part of the initial lineup.
