XBox360 Backward Compatibility

Via ForeverGeek:

Ever since the XBox360 was announced, the issue of backward compatibility has gone from full compatibility to only certain games having it. Here is yet another log to throw on the fire.

Apparently according to a translation of the French site Jeux-France MS also announced that all previous XBox games would be backward compatible with the new hardware. Of course you will need the HDD, but who actually planned on purchasing the Core system anyways??

According to this statement, you will need to buy the more expensive version of the system to have backward compatibility. If you already have an original XBox, will it make that much difference to play it on the new system? Will there be anything gained from playing on the newer platform versus the older one?
