Xbox One Backwards Compatibility For Original Xbox Games Will Be Limited


Much is now known about the upgraded console, which will benefit from the strongest specs sheet of any console ever.

Still, the website says that players will be able to see "increased draw distances" and "destructible environments" in games thanks to the new console. From the top CEO of the company down, if you talked to Satya [Nadella, Microsoft's CEO] he would say "I understand, we need to invest in content in the gaming space".

Rocket League will support all of the various play modes on Nintendo Switch, including TV mode, Tabletop mode, Handheld mode, both Online and Local Multiplayer, and be available for 1-8 players.

And one of those things will be draw distances.

According to Spencer, we can expect to hear more on what 343 Industries is up to "soon", in the interim, we can listen to the Head of Xbox chatting about the power of 4K.

"The Xbox One X is targeted at enthusiast Xbox fans". We did on hardware, we did on platform and [backward] compatibility and we will do this on first-party as well. However, on this front, PC's are easier to upgrade even thought it might prove you to be costly. We look forward to seeing what games are announced.

Microsoft have a number of top-secret exclusives in the pipeline for Xbox One and Xbox One X, but these games won't be out for another two or three years.

In an interview with Gamertag Radio, the Senior Director of Product Management for Microsoft Albert Penello has explained why the company has made a decision to delay the pre-order of Xbox One X.

Our first party is a critical part of that equation.

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.
