Fans of the Xbox franchise of consoles might be the happiest at the moment after the latest confirmed news concerning recently revealed Xbox Series X. Well, if you’ve spent the past few years stacking up a vast library of Xbox One titles and wondering what’s next, you’ll now be glad to know that the collection is all coming with you. This is of course if you choose to upgrade to the anticipated Xbox Series X.
We can pretty conclude as confirmed that the Xbox X console will be compatible with video games for Xbox One straight from launch.
We wanted to make sure we had that, day one, we could deliver on the compatibility promise, and so I’ve been playing quite a few [Xbox 360] games on my [Xbox Series X] and Xbox One games on the [Xbox Series X] and that’s just to ensure that we can be there day one,” said Xbox Phil Spencer in an interview with GameSpot.
This was confirmed even further by one of the brand’s executives explaining that Xbox’s goal with this new tech is to have players have their gaming legacy wherever they go.
We want those games to be able to come forward with you but we also want your services to come with you. We want your gaming legacy to come with you, whether that’s your Gamerscore, whether that’s your friends’ list, all your Achievements, your game saves, all of that should come forward so there are no barriers for you as you think about moving forward.
But as much as all might be well for Microsoft-owned Xbox, fans of the rival brand, PlayStation 5, have had nothing to brag of lately. Sony has chosen to remain quiet about their ongoing project that’s expected to launch around the same time as Xbox Series X.
In fact, other than the renders that have been leaking, Sony has stayed mum about anything to do with the design. But then again, the suspense is acceptable as long as they come up next year with something to wow the players which of course includes the console’s build.
