Microsoft Announces Xbox one Backwards Compatibility, Even Servers

Recommended Posts

HOLY shit!

Now I have no need to buy a used 360.


An AMD cpu has no place in a solely gaming build, end of.

I3 4150, Intel HD graphics, corsair CX750M, 4gb ram, Asus H81M-E, corsair 230T, Intel stock cooler WD Green 2TB Gigabyte 550TI

Why you shouldn't trust Gpu or Cpu boss Click on this I dare you!

Wonder what games won't be playable on Xbox 1, also the system should now need about 2 TB HDD . . .

Probably all the games people like BO2 Halo, they will just want you to buy Master Chief Collection and those cod remastereds that where rumoured.

It will be the same as 360. Nothing has changed to the games optimization.

That's great! I'm not much of a console man, but many of my friends were troubled by the consistent lack of backwards compatibility for the newer consoles.

I feel like Sony's cell is to hard to emulate

Regular PPC might have been easier to do

I feel bad for Sony

Any PPC design is very hard to emulate on x86. And when its emulated, performance is orders of magnitude short of the x86 performance on that chip.

 

Cell is only that much harder, since it posesses one more ALU per core (iirc)

Still waiting for Microsoft and Sony to make it possible to attach their consoles to larger HDDs and NAS and put games on them instead of just save files.

This is another reason going with x86 in consoles is a great idea. So much software has already been tuned for the instruction set and the architectures implementing it. If there's one place legacy support belongs, it's consoles and handhelds.

You can load Xbox One games to a USB 3.0 external hard drive and play games from it, just not a NAS (special drive formatting is necessary to allow the hard drive to be used for game storage).

 

The Playstation 4 allows you to replace the internal 2.5" drive with a larger drive with little difficulty.

I don't give a fuck about the xbone, but this is brilliant. This means, that they finally found a way to emulate the xbox360 on x86. Now it's only a matter of time until we get this on PC

what about game streaming to the PC, aka Halo 3-5 on PC? I  thought that was a thing with W10.


who cares...

The latter voids the warranty though

 IINM you will not void the warranty for the Playstation just for replacing the hdd.

Xbox 360 is based off PPC. Xbox One is x86. I'll remind you that PCs STILL don't have proper PPC emulation for the 360, so MS doing it right off the Xbox One is pretty awesome. 

Hopefully someone will crack it and we can get a real emulator for 360 games.

AFAIK, the Xbox One's OS hasn't been cracked open, has it? I haven't followed that side of things, but yea if they did then you'd have a PPC emulator already written in x86 ready to go, which would be pretty awesome all things considered.
