Xbox One: Backwards Compatibility

Xbox One Proprietary Port

We heard on reveal day and now couple days later, that there is no way the Xbox One will play Xbox 360 games. If you have been following along then this can’t come as a surprise. Since the Xbox One has a new x86 CPU architecture and the Xbox 360 has a nearly decade old Xenon processor, although bitterly disappointing, is understandable.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal Microsoft’s Don Mattrick says,

If you’re backwards compatible, you’re really backwards

So it is obvious Microsoft is looking forward and backward compatibility is a thing of the past.

It looks like Nintendo’s Wii U will be alone with the burden of pleasing the negligible amount of gamers desiring backwards compatibility since the Xbox One and PS4 are looking only to the future.
