Microsoft E3 Event Details - New Games and Backward Compatibility

Microsoft E3 Event Details - New Games and Backward Compatibility

That's why we're able to say, over 30 games will have 4K updates for Xbox One X when we launch it.

At the moment, there are 386 Xbox 360 games playable on Xbox One after the feature was announced at the Microsoft E3 conference in June 2015.

"If you start on the Xbox One S and then later decide that you want to go to the Xbox One X, all of those games are going to play better on your new console and they stay with you". This is particularly important for rendering high res textures, since both consoles aim to offer 4K quality. This is pretty much true of all technology, but what we're seeing Microsoft do is try to keep some of its older stuff alive through backwards compatibility, where the Xbox One is capable of playing games from the Xbox 360 and also the original Xbox.

Phil Spencer, who is the director of the Xbox division, started out the event by setting the name for the new console developed by the company.

Spencer's comment does make sense in the perspective that the Xbox One X offers specifications that Sony can't now rival.

"If you just look at the specs of what this box is, it's in a different league than any other console that's out there", the Xbox boss added. For now, though? If you want the most bleeding edge Xbox One experience possible, there's a console for you - it's just gonna cost ya.

The controller is compatible with the Xbox One, Xbox One S and the upcoming Xbox One X. It is now unknown if it will be compatible with PC upon release.

It's impossible to say whether Microsoft will be making a loss on the Xbox One X, or merely breaking even, but we do know for sure that they'll be relying on selling lots of games to turn this into a profitable venture. "Getting the trademark for Scorpio is really hard", explains Spencer, "When we do names, you have to pick global names for things".
