If you've ever needed proof of just how incredible the whole Xbox backwards compatibility focus has been over the past few generations leading into the release of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S - well, here it is. With YouTube creator Modern Vintage Gamer firing up Crimson Skies on the original OG Xbox console, and then getting a LAN-game going on four generations of hardware.

This uses the System Link functionality from the original Xbox - the same very cool pre-broadband feature that led to 16-player Halo sessions by linking up consoles via LAN. Here we see a game of Crimson Skies hosted on the original Xbox and from there see the Xbox 360, Xbox One X, and Xbox Series S all connect without issue.

Check it out.

This is God Tier emulation on behalf of Microsoft, and with the latest consoles able to improve how the game looks and feels it's basically a magic trick. Especially when you realise you've a got a very old console connecting to a machine from the distant future and thinking, 'Hey, it's just another Xbox'.
