  1. One of the things that got Xbox fans excited was the announcement of backwards compatibility for the Xbox One. Head of Xbox Phil Spenser made the announcement earlier today during Microsoft's E3 briefing. Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra then came on to the stage to announce that Xbox One users can access their digital library of Xbox 360 games, as well as being able to insert their disks into the drive of the Xbox One. But there seems to be some limitations to this, on the Xbox website it states that not all games will work with this feature. “The digital titles that you own and are part of the Back Compat game catalog will automatically show up in the “Ready to Install” section on your Xbox One. For disc-based games that are a part of the Back Compat game catalog, simply insert the disc and the console will begin downloading the game to your hard drive. After the game has finished downloading, you will still need to keep the game disc in the drive to play.” Mike announced that there will be around 100 titles available to play at the launch of the new service and more will come later down the line. This looks to be similar to the Xbox 360's backwards compatibility feature with original Xbox games where only selected titles were included and the rest were locked out. Mass Effect was used as an example of an Xbox 360 game that would be compatible on the Xbox One as they showed off a quick demo, so that was the first title to be confirmed that will be playable on the Xbox One. Mike also announced that those who are a member of the preview program will get early access to the feature starting today, and it will then become available to everyone else this holiday. Xbox.com provides the current list of the titles that are compatible with the Xbox One, more will be added at later times. Here is the announcement that was uploaded to YouTube by Kotaku What do you think of this new feature? Leave a comment below. This post has been promoted to an article

  3. The rumors that have been flying about that the next xbox will require a constant internet connection and used games will not work have been put to rest, so for those who were worried about this can breathe a sigh of relief. Also a report yesterday said that the next xbox will offer an add on that will allow users to use their 360 content on it's successor. More details below This article is from Examiner New information regarding Microsoft’s next-generation home console – codenamed Durango – surfaced on April 10 which suggest that recent rumors proposing that the Xbox 720 will require an always on connection to the internet are in fact false. Likewise, details about backwards compatibility for the Next Xbox have come forth which hint at the possibility that Microsoft’s next-generation home console will support backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 software, however, it will require a special add-on device. On Wednesday, April 10, new information about Microsoft’s Xbox 720 – Durango – came to light as VGLeaks reports that Microsoft will offer an add-on for the Xbox 720 to allow users to play their Xbox 360 games. This add-on will be networked with the Xbox 720 – Durango – to allow for backwards compatibility to all Xbox 360 software – meaning XBLA, digital, and retail Xbox 360 games will be supported. It is said to be similar to the HD-DVD add-on Microsoft released for Xbox 360. Additionally, the rumors of an always online requirement for Xbox 720 are apparently false. The system itself will always be online, but it will not be a requirement to play local content nor will it prevent people from playing used games. This post has been promoted to an article
