Xbox Originals Coming to Backwards Compatibility

Xbox Originals Coming to Backwards Compatibility

Today, a new study from social listening platform Synthesio just gave us new hard data proving that Microsoft and the Xbox One X were in almost everyone's mouth these past few days (via VentureBeat).

"Yes there is an optional stand for vertical!" While it is a bit tough to see, the display in the controller shows off the original boot animation of the original Xbox that was released in 2001.

It is therefore possible each Xbox One X hardware sale generates a loss, but at best it is breaking even.

Let us know how you feel about original Xbox games headed to the Xbox One backwards compatibility program by commenting in the comments section below. Worldwide pricing is £449, €499, CA$599, and AU$649.

Microsoft took the wraps off its powerful new home console, the Xbox One X, at the E3 games show in Los Angeles earlier this week. So I think we wanted to have a really strong E3 around talking about the product and talking about the games. This is often been the criticism that's been making its way around the block when talking about the Xbox One X. And it's a criticism, again, Spencer is fully aware of.

Phil Spencer has recently teased some news from the developers of Halo, 343 Industries. It will "scale up" games not made at 4K resolution to enhance their visuals. The new console will surely be pricier that the Sony Playstation Pro.

Johnson Controls International plc Ordinary Share
Altfest L J & Com holds 0.14% of its portfolio in Johnson Controls International plc Ordinary Share (NYSE:JCI) for 6,632 shares. The sale was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which can be accessed through the SEC website .

Microsoft has confirmed that all standard Xbox One games will be available on both the lower end Xbox Ones and the Xbox One X. Standard is the key word here, as virtual/mixed reality games will be exclusive to the Xbox One X. That's just about all that we know about it, however - during its time as Project Scorpio it was mentioned that Microsoft's upcoming powerhouse was built as a system capable of handling VR, handling numerous universal apps you can already run on a Windows 10 PC through Windows Mixed Reality. This probably won't be one of those years in which Microsoft's or Sony's showings have a big impact on how things shake out.

Destiny was a console exclusive until Destiny 2 was announced.

In short, Xbox One X is competing with the Switch for the same target demographic, not the PS4 Pro.

While it's still a bitter deal for players, I can now see Sony's point, but I also agree with Spencer that it's not a good deal for anyone.
