I find the people who trash Xbox One's backwards compatibility feature and say things like "Who cares about backwards compatibility no one wants to play old games" Are almost always the same ones that are first in line to shell out money whenever their favorite game from last generation gets a remaster. Good games are good games whether they are old or new.

I'm not going to make excuses for the Xbox One's weak exclusive offerings, but I will still give credit where credit is due. Backwards compatibliy is a great feature and it is beautifully implanted on the Xbox One. Being able to take you library with you and play your old games on your new hardware is a very good thing and I don't understand why people trash it or act like it's a bad thing.

and for those who say Xbox has no games... well yes, Their exclusive offerings as of late have been underwhelming compared to the competition and they do need to do better I admit that. However techncially the Xbox One has more games to play then any other console right now. If you count the almost 500 backwards compatible Xbox 360/Xbox games The Xbox One has a library of almost 2000 games. That's massive. Aside from all the current gen stuff, thanks to backwards compatiblity, The entire Mass Effect series is playable on Xbox One, The entire Dead Space series is playable on Xbox One, The entire Assassin's Creed series is playable on Xbox One. The entire Halo series, The entire Gears of War series, The entire Dragon Age series, I could go on.

and another poster made an excellent point, if playing old games is a bad thing, does that mean we shouldnt' read old books or watch old movies?

Was anyone really asking for AW to be backwards compatible? Especially since it's already on Xbox One?

A completely pointless addition. You could already play these on Xbox One. They even gave away the first season on games with gold. I mean really, was anyone asking for these to become backwards compatible?

Come on Microsoft, put games on backwards compat that people actually want and care about!

@biggamerdude: Maybe because it's the number one requested game?

@Rushaoz: Getting 360 games to become backwards compatible on Xbox One takes very little resources. The reason why it takes so long to get certain games to become backwards compatible is because they need permission from the publisher and the publisher doesn't always want to give it.

@stopbeingoffended: Xbox 360 never "destroyed" PS3 PS3 caught up to the 360 in sales and even surpassed it.

and People like you have been saying "RIP Xbox" for years and yet Xbox is still here.

@Bigbudd0045: Backwards Compatablity is not a primary reason to own an Xbox One but it is a selling point of the console and a feature that the Xbox One has that the PS4 does not. and being able to play your previous gen games on your new console and utilize Xbox One features with your old 360 games is pretty appealing to many people. Everytime there is a news story concerning Xbox One backwards compatable games it rockets to the top spot where it is the most clicked on thing, so you can downplay the importance of backwards compatablity if you like but that would change the fact that it is a feature many do care about and many do take advantage of.

When it comes to getting timed or exclusive DLC content whether it be for Destiny or COD or whatever, Don't you realize that Sony has to pay for these deals? Companies didn't just give Sony timed DLC for COD because they like Sony better or because Sony was leading in sales, Sony had to PAY for it. Last generation Microsoft paid 50 million to have GTA 4 DLC exclusive for a year. You think Rockstar just gave it to them because the 360 was selling better? I find it pretty funny that you don't know this. Sony has pretty much took a page out of Don Mattrick's hand book this generation. They are doing pretty much everything Microsoft did last gen, that made the 360 so successful.

You say that if a console doesn't have exclusives how can it combat the competition? I already said that exclusives aren't the only way to sell your console. Exclusives are just one piece. and Xbox does have exclusives. and this coming E3 they will have more. You can brag about stuff like Death Stranding or The Last of Us 2 but those games are not coming out this year. Detroit Become Human, Spider-Man, Days Gone, none of these are confirmed for 2017 Shenmue 3? lol yeah that aint coming out this year lol and these are the big games that the sony fanboys are bragging about and hyping. The thing is Sony is announcing games that are far out and blowing their load early so to speak where as MS hasn't announced everything that is on the horizon.

@Bigbudd0045: There is a difference between a console having more exclusives, and a console having more exclusives you are INTERESTED in.

I saw the list of 40+ exclusives (or whatever the number was) on the PS4 side. I can literally count on one hand the number of exclusives that even remotely interest me. Infact many of them are just small indies or arcade games that you can get on PC. or niche Japanese titles that sony fanboys brag about and pretend to like but when they come out, they won't buy them.

Game consoles aren't just game consoles anymore. Saying you buy a game console just for exclusives is like saying you bought a $600 iphone just to make calls. Game consoles are now media hubs, entertainment centres, The reason why the Xbox One S is such a success is because a console that can play 4k Blu ray movies, and the latest AAA games for $300 is a great value, especially when Stand alone 4k Blu ray players cost the same.

There is also things like controllers this maybe a matter of opinion but the Xbox One controller DESTROYS the PS4 controller especially when it comes to racing games and shooters, online ecosystem (XBL vs PSN and what features they provide) the community, things like NATIVE backwards compatability being able to take your previous gen library with you on your new console.

I get what you are saying, but my point is Exclusives alone aren't the sole reason to buy a console there are other reasons to.

@Bigbudd0045: People buy consoles for more then just exclusives. If Exclusives were all that mattered, then the Wii U should be the number one selling console.
