Xbox One Boss Spencer Wants To Bring Lost Odyssey And Blue Dragon On Backwards Compatibility List

All he needs is the developer's permission.

Phil-Spencer

It’s the industry’s worst kept secret that Phil Spencer is a hard core gamer. The Xbox One chief was recently outed as playing more than 300 hours of Destiny but he clearly likes some of the more old school games as well. This was underlined during a recent Twitter exchange where the exec made it clear he would really like to see both Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon making their way to the Xbox One.

Spencer doesn’t necessarily want to invest the time, energy or money in remaking or relaunching these two titles, but he would like to see them come over to the current generation console using its new backwards compatibility functionality. Spencer was asked by a user whether or not there was a chance that Lost Odyssey might get a sequel or port to the Xbox One on Twitter. The Xbox One chief responded, “First thing I’d like to do is get LO and Blue Dragon in back compat, don’t have that yet.”

Of course, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t ever want to make a new version of either game but it appears he’d first like to see whether or not there’s any real interest in playing those games by the general public on the new consoles. As we’ve been told by Microsoft a number of times, all it really takes to get backwards compatibility for any of these titles, is permission by the developers. With that in mind, it seems to us that Phil Spencer should get on that.
