* Xbox360 will use emulation for Xbox games

Xbox/Xbox Games
Gamesradar reports that MS is hedging their bets slightly - because the Xbox360 will use an emulator for Xbox backwards compatibility.

Rumors shot down:
- That people would have to purchase new versions of the games.
- That MS is deliberately limiting what old games will play.

"At launch, Xbox 360 will be backwards compatible with the top Xbox games," wrote Xbox Live boss Larry Hryb on his blog recently.

However, Hryb doesn't go as far as to say that all Xbox games will work on Xbox 360, saying only that this is Microsoft's "goal".

"Our goal is to have every Xbox game work on Xbox 360. You will not need to purchase a new 'version' - your original games will work on Xbox 360."
