Microsoft rules out backward compatibility on Xbox One

Written by Nick Farrell

Redmond says it is problematic

Xbox 360 games are unlikely to work on the Xbox One, because Microsoft said that it would be ‘really problematic’ to do that.

Sony has promised that in the future it will offer PlayStation 3 games via its Gaikai cloud streaming service, but when and how this will work remains unclear. Redmond said that it is just too hard. According to Microsoft’s Albert Penello though the Xbox One doesn’t have a bats chance in hell, and seems to think that Gaikai wouldn’t work on PlayStation 4 either.

He said that it was really cool if you have a good internet connection. But since most people don’t have that sort of connection, Redmond would need up taking it in the neck because people can’t get it to work well.
