Your reaction: MS make backwards compatibility free on XB1, while Sony charges.
MS doing something for free???
This. If I believed in a hell I'd find a way to check and see if it was cold there.
the upgrade to Windows 8.1 from Windows 8 comes to mind
*facepalm* You do realize they've simply switched from the nomenclature "Service Pack X" to 8.X right? They're trying to transition to a yearly release model like Apple has. The problem with that is it's the reason why OS X has barely changed in 10 years.

Since when do people pay for updates?

He doesn't expect Capcom to get any better, and wants them to be bought by EA so they can die.
Console war in a nutshell:
So just because someone says Microsoft don't give out free stuff it must be true. This is a "what if" situation. As for the internet connection speed, not everyone lives in the US where the speed for internet one of the fastest in the world, so not everyone can get backwards compatibility for their PS4.
LOL.....good laugh dude.....fastest in the world.....hilarious.......
XBone being backwards compatible would likely only effect 360 games...a shame considering all the awesome Xbox Original games I have...I can just save money by plugging in my older Microsoft consoles...or rather I could if they wanted to work correctly...kind of a shame I can play PSX games on a used PSX or a used PS2...Hell, I can play used NES carts on a used NES with fewer issues than trying to play Xbox games on an original Xbox...
short-answer, I'm still not buying into it. Kinect is the deal breaker for me.
I had a dream of my wife...She was dead but, it was OK...
I got this thing called an Xbox360 and an Xbox, so that wouldn't matter to me.
As for Sony, I have a PS3, PS2, and PS1, so yeah, their service is pointless to me, and I don't pay for games I already own!
I smolder with generic rage.
TC you mean completely free right? Like not behind Gold or anything. I actually hope MS does this, might lead to Sony making it free too but who knows

I can see the anger from the responders. They're making personal attacks on Microsoft because they're trying to glorify what Sony did. Teenagers are the funniest people.
The Xbox One board should be renamed to the Official "Troll Here" board.

depends, regular backwards compatability requires you to buy the games, psnow lets play games you don't have like netflix streaming, amazon prime, etc. If m$ created such a service for the x1, and it was free, that would be fantastic, granted the xbox library was fairly limited and I own every 360 game that interested me, but still, regular backwards compatability isn't anything that exciting though and providing a lesser product for less cost doesn't mean much to me
