Wikipedia.org has a good, up-to-date page on the XBox 360.

To answer your question: you will be able to play some, but not all old
XBox games on the XBox 360. According to Microsoft you will need to buy
the XBox 360 hard disk in order to run any of the supported XBox games.
They plan to support more old titles later on via their XBox Live
service.
Some new XBox games that will be released in the coming months are
rumoured to work with the XBox 360 right away.

Maybe. Microsoft has announced that SOME not all games will have patches
that will allow them to run on the Xbox 360. I am willing to bet this will
be sales driven i.e. high selling games get a patch poor selling games
don't. Also you will either need to buy the $399 Xbox 360 or go out and buy
the HD right away if you want to play Xbox games at all. If you buy the
right hardware and the game you want to play was a good seller then yes,
otherwise most likely not.

Once again Sony is the only system with true pop your old disc in and it
will play compatibility. The Nintendo Revolution will only have will Game
Cube games. So far only first party Nintendo games will be offered for paid
downloads. No third party game makers have agreed to their games being
offered as downloads yet.
