CONFIRMED: XBOX 360 Backwards Compatible

Engadget confirms that Xbox 360 will be backwards compatible with most Xbox 1 games.

I will definitely be pre-ordering the new Xbox when it is available. I think it's given me enough impetus to build myself a decent Media Center PC. I really wish the new Tablet I'm getting could have Media Center & Tablet combined, but I remember BillG saying that they will probably offer that SKU for Longhorn.

What I read was (on shacknews) that it would be compatible with only the top XBox games. So it's not by default an xbox game will run on xbox 360.

Btw, seen the PS3 footage? :P
