Microsoft Just Announced the Ultimate Feature for Its Xbox One Console

If you were about to throw away your Xbox 360 game collection because you upgraded from an Xbox 360 to the latest Xbox One, don’t do that just yet. Microsoft’s Phil Spencer just announced at E3 that they will be making its latest Xbox One console backwards compatible with Xbox 360 titles.
Phil said that Microsoft’s aim is to bring as many games as possible to their latest console, giving users access to one of the biggest “library” of titles available on the market. The compatibility has been announced to work with both online and retail copies, having Microsoft roll out 100 titles this holiday season. However, Microsoft plans on adding 100 more later on, so keep your favourite Xbox One discs dust-free and ready for action.
There have been a lot of HD remakes cropping up since the Xbox One hit the market, but Microsoft looks like it wants developers to focus on new titles instead of just reviving old ones. This news may not sit well with developers who’ve already planned an Xbox One remake of their title, but Microsoft seems to be marking users as top priority as of late. The feature is said to already be available for Xbox Preview program members, so if you’re one of the lucky ones, give it a try and see how it goes.
