Your reaction: MS make backwards compatibility free on XB1, while Sony charges.

lol @ paywall. Most gamers will have XBL anyway, so it isn't really trapped behind anything. If you are getting a video game system just for offline games, the apps shouldn't matter. If you want to use Netflix, I'm pretty sure you have other options to access it. No one is putting a gun to your head to get Xbox Live.


what a silly statement

"no one's forcing you to get xbox live......unless you want to do literally anything except play single player games"


All of which are things you can do on your phone/pc/toaster/smartv etc. if you are buying a 360 for anything other than gaming you are a "silly" person.


I bought my Xbox One so I have a blu-ray player. Not srs.

The Xbox One board should be renamed to the Official "Troll Here" board.

I'd be surprised if any of them did free BC, service or hardware. I'd also be happy I guess but I'd probably never use it myself anyways. I've still got an Elite 360 from like 2007 or something.

Either way, Microsoft and Sony would never do that. The general stance is that the only free stuff we'll get from them are the things that nobody would pay for in the first place. Or things that people already own.

Yea Microsoft never give anything way for free. Like 2 games a month (and no you pay for the online service with gold not games with gold) or Xbox ones and games at release!

As a company Microsoft is a damn site better than Sony, Last thing they gave people was a virus!

They would have to make an entirely new console, with 360 components inside it, that would cost an extra $100 at least on top of the current retail price.

So it isn't going to happen, ever

I think we're referring to a streaming service similar to PS4 Gaikai or Netflix that would make Xbone BC.

Also, xbox gold subscribers gets free games. Sleeping Dogs is a great game, I am a little upset because I bought this early November at Gamestop. I believe I paid 30 for it. =/ I am downloading it now so I do not need the disc.

Sure, PSN has a subscription, but it offers TEMPORARY free games.

I can cancel gold, delete the games they have given out, and then redownload them.

Once you own them, you own them. You just have to make sure you download it when it's free, if you miss the window, you can't go back.

PS4 is not going to be BC.

Idiots will be paying a monthly fee to play old games.
