The second aspect is, perhaps, more interesting. Having the same x86 architecture as the PC means that games can be ported much more easily from the Xbox One to PC, and vice-versa. This means less complexity, shorter development times and fewer dodgy ports – the bane of many a gamer. In addition the PS4 also uses a very similar x86 AMD Jaguar processor, which will further help developers when creating cross-platform games.
All of the digital downloads linked to your account will be available straight away, so long as the game is supported by Microsoft. Your achievements, cloud saves and whatnot also carry over.

In both cases, the game will download to your console. For disc-based games, the disc is needed to play the game. For instructions on how to download and install games, go to How to install games on Xbox One.

cubs223425 November 21, 2013, 5:30 am This is a pretty weak article, in my opinion. The initial question seems to be trolling for attention, because it’s been known for MONTHS that backwards compatibility was not happening. However, it’s not really fair to just blame it on a CPU architecture switch. The original Xbox wasn’t PowerPC, but they did the work to offer software emulation on the 360, allowing for original Xbox games (over 300 of them, if I remember correctly) to play just fine on the 360.I’m hoping that Microsoft offers a GaiKai-like solution long-term, but I’m not expecting it. I’m ultimately fine using the HDMI pass-through, if I keep my 360 after I (eventually) get an Xbox One.
“Certainly no-one has said no, and you can understand why. I mean why wouldn’t you. The choice of which games we pick are based on how popular the game is, what ratings it’s got and what the fans vote for,” explained Moulster.
What’s great about the Xbox One backwards compatibility service is that even though it’s running your Xbox 360 games within an emulator, you can still take advantage of the Xbox One features while you play. That includes Game DVR, the ability to snap an application to your game and broadcast your gameplay.
To turn the Xbox One into a backwards compatible machine, Microsoft has built an Xbox 360 emulator that will run on the new console. This basically means that Microsoft has essentially built an Xbox 360 in software, which then runs within the Xbox One. This emulator does all the same things as the Xbox 360, but it just sits inside the newer console.

Commander Shepard’s quest to save the galaxy brought the dynamics and scale of the space opera genre into a vast interactive adventure. What we loved was that the decisions we made, and the relationships we forged, always felt that they had huge ramifications for the universe. Also, there was the possibility of extraterrestrial sex, which, oh my god, the media could not handle at the time.
Kinect and accessories designed for Xbox 360, and games requiring those accessories, are not compatible with Xbox One consoles.

While we were certainly delighted we could play our old Borderlands game on the Xbox One, it quickly came to light that the game’s backwards compatibility is limited. You can’t utilise all the Xbox One features when you play Borderlands it seems, with screenshots and gameplay capture inaccessible.
Evan November 23, 2013, 7:09 pm You may know it is the case but many do not. We’ve been asked it many times. How is this a bashing article? I explain that while we won’t get backwards compatibility we will get other benefits.

It’s not about the muscles. Epic’s science fiction testosterone-fest refined the concept of the third-person shooter with its innovative cover mechanic, but also created an apocalyptic universe loaded with gorgeous visual style and meticulous detail – a look that the studio termed “destroyed beauty”. Also, the guns are massive and have frickin’ chainsaws.

How could you make Las Vegas better? Transport it into a post-apocalyptic wasteland full of radiation-mutated people and monsters, that’s how. New Vegas thrusts you into this twisted universe as a courier for the Mojave Express who becomes embroiled in a battle for the Hoover Dam. You’re then torn between three factional love interests: a group of new Roman legionaries, a military governing power and the secretive Mr. House. Hilarity ensues.
OK so this ridiculous sci-fi shooter sank like a mini-cannon when it was released in 2011, but that is one of the great crimes of the Xbox 360 era. Bulletstorm is a joyous exploration of shooting mechanics, adding art and ballet to combat via its skillshot feature, which rewarded players for defeating enemies in ludicrously graphic and violent ways. It is also filled with great visual gags that poke endless fun at action game conventions. Brilliant and overlooked.
Merging a doomed art deco utopia with objectivist politics, detailed environmental storytelling and a truly dizzying plot twist, Bioshock is one of the most interesting and influential action adventure games ever devised. To harvest or not to harvest: that was the question.
