Linkypoo

Nothing really surprising with the picture, except the second "x". What do ya think it means?

The link has a list of the games if you have trouble telling.

Both xbox's relate to the number 1.

Think it'll be BC or a charge service for old titles? Could be fun for SW sake.

#4 Posted by BldgIrsh (2787 posts) -

@Chutebox: I hope its actual backwards compatibility and not a streaming service. Imagine Microsoft giving BC to the xbone while the ps4 is charging a service for it. That would make SW's very fun.

(My first post was me being cheeky with both of them being one and the first Xbox.)

Looking forward to seeing gameplay of Scalebound and Quantum Break

Backwards Compatibility would be interesting as well

#6 Posted by SakusEnvoy (4334 posts) -

Indeed, maybe BC for the original Xbox is coming. It'd only be appropriate that the Xbox One should be able to play Xbox 1 games. I doubt they'd even break a sweat pulling it off, and they already have a digital library of Xbox Originals.

As for BC with the 360 though, I wouldn't hold my breath. I don't think the One is even powerful enough technically to pull off software emulation.

On that note, Sony really should have software emulators for the PS1 and PS2 already by now. They're being incredibly lazy on BC this gen.

Well Microsoft knows about symbols and time very well since their mostly the illuminati software company. hehehe.

maybe backwards compatibity for almost all their old games?

I don't think the second X means anything, it's just they ran out of X's to use in this graphic. If anything they're just paying homage to the original Xbox. It's just some graphic someone wanting to get creative and threw it together.

probably another tv series like quantum break announced for 2014 and then released in 2016

How many of those will be exclusives by 2017 i wonder

#12 Posted by RR360DD (12130 posts) -

I'd say its more to do with them needing another letter X, guess we'll find out soon

Quite a few multiplats in there so no

Probably a bunch of xbox remakes to go onto the market place as arcade games.

#15 Edited by Gaming-Planet (14030 posts) -

I hope it's Xbox classics, and not stupid remasters.

#16 Posted by yokofox33 (30023 posts) -

Xbox classics would be cool I guess. I'd hope they would include 360 titles as well.

#17 Posted by FoxbatAlpha (7856 posts) -

More games and possibly some still coming out in 2014.

No rumors of Sonys broke ass having anything but a bigger hard drive version of the PS4 which is so sad it is laughable.

When you already are labeled as having no games, don't come out with more hardware.

#18 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (5511 posts) -

You aren't getting backwards compatibility. It's nostalgia hype. They'll probably announce a few more remakes.

Not been paying attention, huh, Justin? No surprise, the way you've been getting slapped about I'd stick my head in the sand too.

I never mentioned BW compatibility in the above post. I am sorry Sony is cutting you loose soon.

And I wasn't referring to that either.

Sharpen up, Justin. :)

I believe the videogame division of Microsoft will show videogames at the videogame conference. The media will be alerted and we will all remember what we were doing on such a momentous occasion, much like when JFK's head got shot to pieces.

An Alan Wake 2 teaser would be a cool surprise.

Lets wait and see shall, we, i doubt you are Privvy to Microsofts future plans so to blatantly say the xbone won't be getting BC is a bit silly really.

Cows , they THINK they know what MS is going to do before MS even knows what they are going to do,lol

It wouldn't be hard to port original xbox games to the Xbone and i can imagine it will draw afew people that want to play games like Kotor or Jade empire.

Besides, even if ti is remakes theres a few Xbox original titles that are well worth remaking so either way it would be win/win anyway.

FABLE Anniversary was one of the best remakes ever made in my opinion, it Vastly improved on the graphics of the original without compromising the Artistic Style and it was the Lost chapters version which just made it even better.

Remakes are not a bad thing, Cows should know, they just put up a stern defence over the Score for TLOU remastered on GS that could have lost people there jobs,lol

#23 Posted by scottpsfan14 (5819 posts) -

OMG Xbox original compatability coming! Please do it Microsoft. To force Sony to get PS1/PS2 BC!

After all BC of original Xbox makes sense because it's aslo x86 like the XB1.

#24 Posted by Solid_Max13 (3548 posts) -

Probably just an homage to the original Xbox and it stands out especially for a games convention, I mean how many other games have X in the name that were executive for Xbox that people remember? Don't look to hard into it.

It's not coming because the CPU architecture is too inherently different for it to work. Use your head a bit.

Amusing seeing lemmings defend re-releases and remakes though. You probably won't be able to use the "value" card this time though.

BC so they can say, see, way gave you Conker, G'head play Conker: Live & Reloaded on your X1. :P

Seems like they need more games if they have to resort to XBox logos to fill the gaps.

When in doubt, blame Sony and its fans. It's not like ya'll haven't been saying the PS4 has no games for the past year or anything.

Don't worry, if they need to, lems can make their own games on Project Spark. Eat that, cows.

Awww, look at the cow coming to the defense of the other cow... Bovines In Arms.

On Topic: Xbox originals would be cool for the Xbone but the 360 already has back compat (mostly) so it's not exactly a big deal if that is the case.

#34 Posted by Heil68 (45707 posts) -

Hopefully more exclusives, that's all I want for the Xbone. Hopefully not TIMED ones, which has been the case lately with DR3 and Ryse.

Just a bit of banter, chap. No need to get antsy because you have no games.

Maybe even a fresh coat of paint? I'd like to see an updated KOTOR, personally.

BC compatbility with titles from xbox O would be an awesome thing to have, but, i don't see it happening. Sadly.

I am not willing to divulge my old age on internet forums.

If it's backward compatibility with no fee. Good luck cows.

Sony Statement after announcement: "We find no value in that for our customers. Streaming the games you already own is the future for our customers, for a smallish fee."

Keep hoping. Different architectures. They're hyping up nostalgia like Sony has and they needed two Xs to make up the lettering.
