Backwards Compatible Original Xbox Games Won't Receive Achievements

Starwars Battle Front II

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.

With the launch of the Xbox One X, Microsoft is offering a middle ground between the traditional convenience of console and the power of a PC.

It joins the Xbox One S - a slimmer version of the Xbox One that supports 4K video streaming - in the roster of consoles that make up Microsoft's latest console generation. On the other hand, the Xbox One S is no slouch, however, it's using similar technology to the original Xbox One that was released in 2013. Xbox Live was something I wanted to focus, coming on Android, iOS, Windows PC because I really want people to play games on the place they want to go play.

As GameSpot reports, Xbox head Phil Spencer stated that a number of titles are already in the process of coming to the Xbox One, though he wouldn't state which ones other than Crimson Skies and Fuzion Frenzy. Microsoft did not achieve that with the Xbox One X. And thus, the demand and enjoyment of single-player games can continue, and we won't be trapped in a future where every game has to follow Destiny's model. Amongst those was obviously Nintendo's press conference where it announced tons of new stuff especially for the new Switch console. Nintendo also announced the DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a new Pokémon game, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and Fire Emblem Warriors, all for Switch.

One major drawback here is that of the VR support.

Competing with the Xbox One X is the PlayStation 4 Pro which was released a year ago.

Up till now, there are only two original Xbox games that have been confirmed for the backwards compatibility library for Xbox One and they are Crimson Skies and Fuzion Frenzy. We had to figure out when can we come out with that box at a price point that made sense. It's the "smallest Xbox ever", with true 4K performance that you don't actually need a 4K television to appreciate, thanks to a process called "super sampling".

So, whether you're looking to upgrade your current Xbox or jump ship to a new system altogether, here are all the major areas where the Xbox One X outdoes the PS4 Pro.

As things stand, there won't be any cross-play for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite which will be playable on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the PC. Now we have another developer whose game is running at 4K 60 FPS on Xbox One X comparing it to a high-end PC.
