Xbox Originals Coming to Backwards Compatibility


Otherwise, it would have been a stupid move for a firm like Microsoft to stop pre-ordering of their new console. However, there are also other things to consider when it comes to buying a console. For that price - and for the size of resources that will come with the 4K games it makes possible - it definitely should have more. Moreover, Sony recently released PlayStation Now-its subscription-based game streaming service-on the PC and Microsoft, on the other hand, has created the Xbox Play Anywhere program.

"The Xbox One X is targeted at enthusiast Xbox fans".

Microsoft's first console had a number of excellent originals and brilliant multiplatform games, and some are still plenty of fun after all these years.

Microsoft had a strong E3 press conference this year.

However, one criticism launched its way is the lack of system-selling, "big" AAA exclusives - which bar Forza 7 - weren't really present at the show. The original Xbox One was simply stretched too thin.

"We do not expect [a higher price] to impact sales of the console at launch". Microsoft is betting that there's a die-hard core of gamers who will always pay out for the latest, greatest thing.

"On the Halo and Gears thing specifically, I was proud that we were able to show off 42 games and not show Halo and Gears, 'cause people know we are working on Halo and Gears".

He also responded to the idea that it would have helped develop confidence in the Xbox to reveal those games, even if it's early in development.

This is a cheesy line, but I'll just say, trust that this is important to us as a platform. Despite the changes, they are still being constrained if we are to go by the rumors. We have Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, Lucky's Tale, Ori and the Will of the Wisps...

"I don't want to get into all the numbers, but in aggregate you should think about the hardware part of the console business is not the money-making part of the business", Spencer said.

But it says that users with a regular 1080p television won't see the benefits of the console's 4K resolution visuals.
