It should say. We apologize , microsoft does not support xbox360 software and has not for quite some time. Please trade in all your games for x1 software. We appreciate your undying support.
ERROR ERROR ABORT ABORT Reinforcements needed in sector 7!!!
Its strange it doesnt recognize its a X360 game at least...
Can't wait till tomorrow. Hopefully people will be enjoying their console of choice and stop with crappy articles and we can focus on experience and Games.
I remember that the ps3 could read xbox 360 games telling you to insert it to the xbox, but its under video not game.
It tells you that you should take it back and wait to find a PS4 for $100 less.
I figure I'll post this right here: I put a ps3 disc in my ps4 and surprisingly it was able to identify it as a ps3 game disc. I wonder if the ps4 will use disc checking to play our streaming library later... PS+ + ps3 game disc + gaikai = backwards compatibility. And judging by the fact that if you do a physical ps3 to ps4 upgrade for assassins creed you need to put that disc in the ps4; i would say this theory is more than likely correct.
Actually this is required if you do any of the PS3 to PS4 upgrades. Essentially you insert the PS3 disc as proof of ownership and it will allow you to purchase and run a special DRM protected Digital Download version of the game for the PS4. The PS3 disc will unfortunately always be required to play the digital upgrade version to prevent people from borrowing a game and just spending $10 to get the upgrade as if it were a full game. That being said, it isn't out of the question to accomplish this same thing via GAIKAI for streamed PS3 versions much like you said.
Mkis This is how I was understanding it. For physical media BC you put in a disc and then gaikai reads the code and streams the game to you. Im really curious what it will be like. I think we have until later 2014 to fins out though.
And youd still have no backward compatability smh
@BTB BC isn't a deciding factor since ps4 cant do it either. Kind of a bummer, but maybe worth the trade off if we see better games, especially multiplats being easy to code for devs.
I remember when the 360 came out it played halo 1 and 2 out of the box. Would of been good if they did the same with the One
This is perhaps the most useless article I've ever seen submitted to this website.
I somewhat agree as we've known for many months that neither new console would be backwards compatible.
Agreed ... Totally, Majorly, Pointless article...
Knowing is half the battle. And now you know.
just another article for sony fanboys to have their fun
Oh, we have our fun with our PlayStations of all generations. This Xbox stuff is like a sideshow to the main attraction.
OHHHHH I can test that statement xDDD
I saw an article that was more useless yesterday. It was "Guile's Theme goes with Kanye West."
The PS4 does the exact same thing when you pop in a PS3 disk, I don't get the purpose of this submission one bit.
Maybe MANY people assumed the Xbone would be BC...MS sure showed them.
I don't know of anyone who "assumed" that. MS and sony have both said from the start they wouldn't be BC.
Not everybody is like us who live on this site having to know every single piece of gaming news there is. So naive
Anything to give the negative perception of the XB1. Probably created and submitted by a sonyfanbot...while waiting to try to connect to Psn..
I'm sorry, what was that? I was too busy playing on my PS4 to read Xbox Fanboy drivel. Why aren't you... oh that's right, the Xbox One isn't out yet so you're bored to tears.
Try popping those exclusive games in a 360, they will magically play as thats where they were to be played initially, microsoft's support sucks bad and thats for all their devices, phones included
Here's what happens when I try to comprehend why this is newsworthy: http://www.gifbin.com/98267...
Somebody from N4G probably submitted this.
Definitely. Sony bots are desperate now with the arrival of the xb1
It should say just stick it in your 360 and play it if you must play that crappy game. Please reserve me for the likes of Forza5 & Ryse, thats what you paid your money for idiot.
Why the negative article 1 day prior to launch? Stupid article. Stupid submission. Anyone with a brain already knew this. This is proof that there were many Sheep out in the media world doing everything to sabotage Microsoft's latest entry. Try again because I will own one tomorrow and it will look nice next to its HD Twin PS4.
Let's go back to last Thursday and see if there were any negative PS4 articles. And let's see if you were asking the same question, and similarly deriding it.
no real backwards compatability this gen = i'm sticking with PC. i've got over 100 games on steam and when i upgrade a component every few years (might get a better graphics card next year), all those games look/ play better! my games library never becomes useless and i don't have to hang on to obsolete physical media/ hardware - my library constantly grows and constantly gets better :)
WTF we already knew it can't play X360 games, how is this news???
this is so shocking... /s
I submitted an article way more interesting than this and it didn't even reach 250. This dumb article...front page. Impossible to get good content noticed.
you press eject and it comes out?
Tryst me somebody will sue in the US...
How would they sue, when you get a free replacement in the first year under warranty? Not possible to sue.
Can anyone explain to me the huge desire for backwards compatibility? If you are buying either a PS4 or Xbox One you obviously want it to play the next gen games. So if you are new to consoles and this is your first one then you don't have a collection of last gen games to play and if you already had a 360 or PS3 then why not just play it on them?
It says. "You have been banned"
