Dev Talks PS4/Xbox One Backwards Compatibiliy, Microsoft Trying To Improve Brand Image
Agatha Christie dev would “love to see real full backward compatibility for every brand.”
Backwards compatibility will continue to remain a major issue for all kinds of console fans, especially as the generations roll on. However, the approaches being taken are pretty different when you look at Sony, which introduced PS2 emulation on the PS4 months ago and also PlayStation Now for PS3 games, and Microsoft, which offers backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games as a free feature on the console.
GamingBolt spoke to Alexandre Migeon, project manager for Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders, for his take on the same. “Being gamers ourselves, we would love to see real full backward compatibility for every brand. Microsoft is trying hard to improve the brand image since the start of the Xbox One. Let’s hope backward compatibility will be soon available for most of the fantastic 360 games launched this last decade and that the hard work will be appreciated by gamers.”
