These are the games you can play in 720p and 1080i on the original Xbox

Hyperkin just announced its latest accessory, a cable that will allow you to plug up your original Xbox to your display via HDMI. Now, the Xbox was released 17 years ago, so you might be wondering, what games on the console were playable in HD?

As you can imagine for a console that originally made its debut in 2001, there aren't a whole lot of games the support HD resolutions. A majority of the Xbox library outputs at 480p, but there are some games that output at 720p and even 1080i. If you're thinking about purchasing the Hyperkin cable when it becomes available, the games below will be the ones that can benefit the most from the HDMI connection.

In terms of games that support a resolution up to 1080i:

  • Atari Anthology
  • Double S.T.E.A.L The Second Clash
  • Dragon's Lair 3D: Return to the Lair
  • Enter the Matrix
  • MX Unleashed
  • MX vs. ATV Unleashed
  • Syberia

And, here's the list of games that support a resolution up to 720p:

But, this list gives you an idea of what to expect, if you decided to dust off your old console to have a go, and whether or not the accessory will provide any benefits beyond the convenience of a single HDMI connector based upon your game collection.
