I keep hearing it's not going to be backwards compatible, I ended up buying a new Xbox 360 on black Friday as a back up. But what have you guys heard about it?

according to leaks of unverified veracity from a few months ago, it will have backwards compatibility with xbox 360 games

the leaks were supposedly from a 2 year old manual though; even if they happen to be legit, plans could change or whatever

personally i'll be really pissed if it doesn't have backwards compatibility considering the high failure rate of xbox 360s (at least the old ones). i don't want to have to rebuy an obsolete console just to play my old library

I feel that way also but will it be mostly software based? Because half the backwards compatible games that worked on the 360 had glitches and slowdowns.

As long as they don't switch who they are getting their GPU from, it should have very few problems with BC.

They haven't even officially announced the console, let alone what features it will and won't have.

The only thing I'd demand be backwards compatable are arcade games.
360 BC would be great as well, but I still have a console for those for now. I'd be really annoyed if my downloaded stuff wasn't usable any more.

Xboxnext will be 100% backwards compatible including every XBLA game.
I stake my word on it.

Who knows, MS probably has a bigger intererest in re-releasing those games, at a higher resolution. Like the "HD remakes" of today

why do backwards compatibility when they can just charge you guys for HD remakes?
