The hoopla over last week's Xbox One reveal was all about new hardware specifics and promised new features. Considering the news that came out during the following days, there seems to be more stuff that it can't than can do. Here is what we know won't be happening with Microsoft's next-gen console.
No Backwards Compatibility
Don Mattrick, President of Interactive Entertainment for Microsoft told The Wall Street Journal "if you're backwards compatible, you're really backwards." Now that's understandable considering that his studies found that only five percent of customers play games from previous generations when it comes to physical media. The question of the moment is what happens to downloadable games seeing that Xbox One is going for a new chip set architecture? They're gone unless a user keeps their original console.
