Phil Spencer: Original Xbox backward compatibility coming this year

Just like the Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility reveal, Microsoft stunned everyone at E3 2017 when they announced that original Xbox games were also coming to Xbox One through the service. Spencer won't comment on Sony's motivation, but he says that cross-platform play is better for gamers and if it's better for gamers, that's what game developers and console makers should be aiming for.

Looking at the bigger picture, enabling cross-platform interaction between multiple systems will be helping the entire gaming community, according to his team at Microsoft.

"The relationship with Nintendo on this front has been strong".

"There's some stuff we're going to talk about in that space in terms of how compatibility's going to work on [Xbox One] X specifically that I think people will find pretty interesting", Spencer declared. Many were assuming that Microsoft were pitching the Xbox One X as the successor to the Xbox One, and would therefore have a slew of games waiting in the wings for its release, but if they believe that its sales won't compare to those of the Xbox One S then where has the support been for the console throughout 2017?

Asked if cross-play between Xbox One and PS4 is a lost cause, Spencer said he doesn't want to speak for Sony. "When I think about techniques to somehow manufacture a 4K screen like what some other consoles try to do, this is different than that", Xbox boss Phil Spencer said earlier this year. I know there is a certain view that says if my friends have this console, they can't play with people who buy another console. So, when a question about the same was put to them by GameSpot, Spencer said, "We're close, we're really close", adding, "I have a little dashboard I go to and I can see all the games [and] where they are in getting approvals in the pipeline".

The wording implies that the experience will not be the same across Xbox One and Xbox One X, so we're assuming that there's a feature on the latter console that will enhance your older games in some way. "That reason is not going to go away. They should talk about what their view is".

"I think people look at [cross-play] and say is it better for gamers".

Sony, come on. Seriously. He confirmed during an interview during the Brazil Game Show that his company continues to persuade the Japanese gaming firm to possibly consider their request. "So I don't know what would change".
