If you own an original, uh, Original Xbox game disc, you’ll be able to use that, or you can buy a digital copy of the game from the Xbox Store. Up to now, the catalogue of Original Xbox games on the local Xbox Store has been limited for some reason, and the announcement mentions that “regional availability may vary”, so those of you using South African Xbox accounts might not have access to everything. This problem is resolved by swapping to a different region, but that has its own restrictions because obviously, and it’s the future now and isn’t it time the space lizard global economy became an actual, real “global” thing.
