Microsoft Confirms Scorpio Will Have Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility

Ybarra says ‘of course’, the feature will be on the new console.

While we still don’t know what the price of Microsoft’s Project Scorpio console is going to be, we do know one major feature gamers had to be hoping was coming. One Microsoft exec confirmed that the new console, whenever it does hit the market, will have the same kind of backwards compatibility the Xbox One console carries.

Director of Program Management for Xbox Mike Ybarra confirmed the backwards compatibility on Twitter when he posted, “360 Backwards compatibility will of course work on Scorpio.” The no-nonsense response was to a user who had asked Ybarra whether they would be able to play the Xbox 360 version of Red Dead Redemption on Scorpio.

While it might seem like a bit of a no-brainer at this point, it’s always nice to see that Microsoft is sticking with something that has worked for them. The ability to get Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One has certainly been a selling point since the current generation console landed

    What? It won’t be an over price renting service where we have to pay again for the games we already have? Sad day.

      Yes, you have meagre emulation of part of the 360’s library with technical issues. No wonder they had Slimy Mikey Ybarra announce it, it wouldn’t look strange when he begged people to pre-order N64 ports ten minutes later.

    Well duh, it is just the same old Xbox One console as the last 2 failures that released this year, and they’re still gonna need some games to play. Why not let people play last generation’s Xbox360 games if you don’t have any good new Xbox One exclusive games to promote your new overhyped next failed console console. Buy new game consoles just to play old console games. Them Xbox people are truly “spethal”.

      Thanks. Hey, listen, I know this will sound kind of cliche, but I have to ask because of the tone of your comments.

      Are you mad bro? Can you just try and calm down a bit and let it all just slide off of you? Don’t let this stuff bother you so much. Ok?

    • kma99

      Im gonna be as honest as possible and i know you wont believe it because you drones dont believe anyone but your lord Sony Christ. I have never nor will i ever get mad at anything dealing with video games or a company that i dont own. Im just here to laugh at you narrow minded clowns who constantly lie and spread misinformation. I dont hate sony i own sony products just as well as nintendo and microsoft but i get a kick out of making you rage and switch accounts.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Ok. You’ve stopped cursing. That’s a major step. I’m so proud of you and you should be equally proud of yourself. You’ve come a long way today. Keep your focus.

    • kma99

      I curse because i want to. I’m a grown man and i dont need anyone trying to tell me what i can say or do. If you dont like it, deal with it. Oh yeah stop replying to yourself. Have the decency to log in your other account first

    Xbox One S Fan Rattle (self.xboxone)
    submitted 10 hours ago by Jdruu

    Hi All,
    Video evidence of the noise here
    I’ve returned to the Microsoft Ecosystem recently by picking up a
    brand new Xbox One S (Battlefield 1 500gb). The first Xbox One S I
    bought has a very loud rattle and I returned it immediately for a new
    bundle. I just opened the new bundle and I am experiencing a very
    similar rattle in the video I posted above. Is this normal? Do I have
    bad luck? Am I onto my third Xbox One S?

    [–]joshoheman 2 points 10 hours ago
    Exact same situation here.
    I was thinking about calling msft prior to returning to the game
    store, but I’ll probably just call the game store to give them a heads
    up to make sure my second return is smooth.
    If you get grief from the store on your second exchange simply
    explain that you know what a computer/console fan sounds like, clicking
    in the fan is not normal. I didn’t notice until I tried watching Netflix and as I was looking for a show to watch the noise became apparent. The white noise from a
    fan is easy for our brain to filter out, however, this noise clearly
    isn’t normal fan white noise.
    Let us know if your next box turns out ok, I can do the same if you’d like as well.

    Just spoke to a Microsoft rep who wanted to take it in for RMA/Repairs. I told them I’ll give the game store one more shot.

    [–]joshoheman 1 point 10 hours ago
    I suspect that’s msft trying to keep their retailer relations happy. But, yeh, within days of purchase back to the store makes sense.

    [–]XboxHelperOne 1 point 10 hours ago
    My original xbox one makes that noise too but it’s way more silent than
    that you can only notice it if you’re very close and If it’s really silent.

    [–]revengexgamer 1 point 9 hours ago
    You can keep trying, but odds are its going to be a few more exchanges before you get one that doesn’t do it, thats why I am not even going to bother unless the noise is unbearable, since microsoft store is my warranty, and its like half an hour away from my house, I am not going to keep making trips for something that won’t effect the console and how long it lasts.

    That’s good to hear. BC works perfectly on Xbox One.

    p.s. Well its official Microsoft touched the crazy black man in some strange way that he now stalks and copies xbox gamer comments and then pastes them to try and make a point that is not even there. His desperation levels to downplay a plastic box is out right pathetic but at the same time its hilarious seeing go into a meltdown.

    No s**t, why wouldn’t it? It’s an Xbone.
