Is the XBone backwards compatible?

#1xXxHaVeNPosted 2/10/2014 5:48:36 AM
Already have a PS4, though I'm thinking I'll pick up an X1 as well when the price drops. I've heard that there may be a model coming without a disk drive? Not sure if that's rumors or if it's actually coming out. I'd probably be inclined to purchase that, though if there is backwards compatibility on the console I could definitely shell out a bit more for a model that plays discs as well.

Thanks in advance.

Not backwards compatible, discless is just rumors MS denies.

Ah, damn. That's a bummer. I'm going 100% digital for the next (current?) gen so I'd love the option. Backwards compatibility would be the only thing to change my mind.

Uhhh...no.

You can't even buy 360/ps3 games digitally on the 1 and the 4.

when did MS announce digital BC for Xbox One? I know PS4 is doing theirs through Gaikai but I haven't heard anything about there being BC on the One

Crazy unlikely unless they add a streaming service (who wants to play call of duty with EXTRA input lag?) or add an entire x360 inside the case of the x1.
The X1 processor has no where near the power to emulate the x360.
Maybe if you strung 10 xboxones together it could emulate the x360...
