Xbox One could still be Backwards Compatible
 

 
http://attackofthefanboy.com/news/xbox-one-backwardscompatible/

It looks like there may be even more Xbox 180′s in store. Backwards compatibility looks set to join the long list of U-turns performed by Microsoft for their next generation console. The most recent include the apparent re-surfacing of the Home Sharing facilities, and the inclusion of a headset with the Xbox One.


DailyGame claim that a Microsoft Representative exclusively told them the news during a half-hour interview. “I’ve heard the backwards compatibility thing is still being ironed out and might happen. So don’t count on the answer being a firm ‘no’ just yet. They’ve really been listening to feedback, and that includes backwards compatibility for Xbox One,” he shared.


Don Mattrick, the now ex-President of Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft, had originally implied that backwards compatibility wouldn’t be possible, and gamers would have to stick to their Xbox 360 if they wanted to play games designed for it. Then again, at the time, the Xbox One still had DRM limitations and a strict used games policy, so who’s to say what’s possible now?


The publisher of DailyGame included a note with the article to confirm that he had seen a scan of the representative’s business card and could verify the legitimacy of the source. However, even if the Microsoft rep was telling the truth, there’s no guarantee that he was correctly informed on the subject. On top of this, he states that it’s a possibility, rather than a probability, but given Microsoft’s recent actions the story seems to be; if the fans want it, Microsoft will deliver it. Unless, of course, ‘it’ is the lack of Kinect requirement or a lower price point. Still no word on either of those issues.

I'm sold if it happens. And if you can just go back so late in the game and make it happen Sony needs to do it too. This gen got too much heat dropping to just move on to the next gen like that. And I'm not gonna be going through all the changes of plugging in the old systems I'm sorry. I don't see Sony doing it though because they take pride in still having their older gens still running strong well into the next gen. MS is a bit desperate at this point because of the failed PR for the One so they might feel forced.

Anybody have any idea on what it would take to make that happen though? Since y'all are making this out to be HIGHLY unlikely. I'm not into all of the technical aspects of things. And some of y'all n*ggas be on top of this stuff.

the algorithms of the current gen and next gen games need to be able to match up perfectly, which is highly difficult and unlikely given the difference in technologies and vectors they both use

wouldn't that mean emulating a 360 on the x1? the games are optimized and built for the 360 hardware so i doubt it'd be easy

if possible, then thats dope

I hope they do. The day I retired my PS for my PS2 was glorious. I'd love to put my 360 back in it's box and retire it along with it's Atari, NES, SNES, N64, PS, and Dreamcast cousins.
