Xbox One Scorpio will be fully backwards compatible with Xbox One and Xbox 360. In an interview with Stevivor, Xbox head Phil Spencer noted that the console as specifically being designed so that Xbox 360 and Xbox One games ‘just run’ on it, without any technical wizardry’ required.

“We’ve very specifically designed it [on Scorpio] so Xbox games just run,” he said, referring to both Xbox 360 and Xbox One titles. “It’s nothing like Xbox 360 backwards compatibility right now — there’s a lot of technical wizardry involved in that. We didn’t want to have to do that again.”

That’s good- after all, one of the major points of these iterative consoles is that they will hopefully make libraries continuous, and never lead to generational breaks in libraries of the kind that we are otherwise used to. Now Phil, if you could just add original Xbox compatibility into the mix too, it would be much appreciated…

    i dont think this console will be cheap or to expensive people bought the xbox one at $500 this could be $550 or $600 since xbox one s 1tb version is $349.i just dont think it will be $400

  • -youjustgotburned-

    So which Xbox One S will that be? The $299, $349 or $399? I kid I know it has to be the $399 one. I will put it between $449 and $500. Unless by the time we get there the prices of the part on the Scoprio go down but we will just have to wait and see.

    sounds interesting……then i’m puzzled as to how they’re planning to do BC on Scorpio for 360 games. well at 6tf they should have enough power to fully emulate the 360

    • Alistein

      They will not be emulating at all the article says the console will be designed or in inbuilt with full bc meaning all 360 games will work just as easily as they work on the 360, it would certainly expand the library of games for the Scorpio.

  • Riggybro

    I reckon things like this will really win the average consumer over to Scorpio (rather than 6TF 4K blah blah which is really preaching to the converted)

  • Mr Xrat

    Well, yeah, it’s an Xbone. Course the games will work. Is MS really that desperate that they want people to think this is a new console?
