Don’t Expect As Many Original Xbox Games To Be Backwards Compatible

Don't Expect As Many Original Xbox Games To Be Backwards Compatible

It makes sense, as Xbox Live is Microsoft’s “gaming social network” and Minecraft is essentially now a Microsoft game.

Sony’s Jim Ryan stated that the power advantage of the Xbox One X over the Playstation 4 Pro won’t be that evident when it rolls out this winter. Notably, Microsoft’s anticipated Crackdown 3 will launch alongside the X.

According to the rumor mill, Grand Theft Auto 6 from Rockstar Games will be the first game to be released for the PS5.

The publication site notes that head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, explained there are two main reasons why the original Xbox compatibility program won’t support as many games as the current Xbox 360 program.

“Games play better on Xbox One X. The world’s most powerful console begins rolling out to all Xbox One markets starting on November 7″.

Spencer goes on to say that the Xbox One X is meant for those who want the very best their particular subscribed platform has to offer.

With the Xbox One X, Microsoft appears to have made no compromises whatsoever. Sure, they’ll look pretty and run smoother, but it’s certainly not a game changer for those cradling their reliable (and much cheaper) Xbox One S to their chest. “It gives you this precision and it really benefits the game like this that’s a lot about timing and about controlling this character-and it just feels great”.

Xbox One X, you know, we’ll see”. This is a console that’s capable of outputting games in 4K resolution – the next step after HD.

When Microsoft unleashed the Xbox One to take on the PS4, there was one glaring problem even their most dedicate fans couldn’t ignore…the price.

A demonstration of the racing game “Forza 7 illustrated how in-depth graphics can now get”.

The $499 price point might be daunting to some, and Microsoft has since revealed it doesn’t make an actual profit on the Xbox One X at that price. All the talk is of pure performance – as it’s pitched squarely at the core gamer – but within a box many times smaller than most gaming PCs. A lot of companies are trying to create better and more powerful console even if they are more expensive. They aren’t as constrained on release dates, with the PS4 Pro and One X both coming at a time which suits them.

Xbox One X will be launched in Saudi Arabia during 2017 for SR1,899 ($505). They want the gamers to feel a sense of pride in owning an Xbox One X, and that’s fair enough.
