Valve's Orange Box is backward compatible on Xbox One


Remember vanilla Team Fortress 2?

The Orange Box was a special release back in 2007. Hell, it still is to this day. Valve's compilation disc brought Portal, Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2, and Half-Life 2: Episode One and Episode Two to consoles, and good lord that's a lot of amazing video games in one sentence. As of this week, the Xbox 360 version of The Orange Box is now compatible with Xbox One through backward compatibility.

Other additions to the playable-on-Xbox-One list include Xbox Live Arcade titles Joe Danger 2: The Movie (Hello Games wasn't always synonymous with No Man's Sky) and Galaga Legions, a modern take on the arcade staple in a similar vein as Pac-Man: Championship Edition. Never did play that one!

Needless to say, I think it's about time we go back to Ravenholm.
