Jason Ronald has reviled on Twitter that every Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One game playable on the Xbox One will also be playable on the Xbox Series X and S at launch. - IGN
How is my comment inappropriate, wtf, talk about hit the nail on the head
It is called trolling
Maybe because people are sick of these constant fanboy comments. You people are just regurgitating the same s*** every day.
I wondering why IGN left out word "TODAY" from Ronald's tweet??? After 500K+ hours of testing, we’re are excited to share that all Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One games playable on Xbox One today, except for the handful that require Kinect, will be available – and look and play better – on Xbox Series X|S at launch. That means all games that are playable on XB1 to date will be playable on XSX, NOT ALL released games since first Xbox till today. 1899 XB1 + 577 XB360 + 42 OXB So little more than 3200 games. EDIT : Also, Xbox tweeted this at the beginning of Oct : The largest launch line-up of any new console, ever. https://twitter.com/Xbox/st... But when Sony announced over 4000 PS4 games will be playable on PS5, Xbox twitter acc. changed to this around 2 weeks ago : The largest launch lineup in Xbox history 🎮 1000s of playable games across generations 🎮 30 titles fully optimized for Xbox Series X|S this holiday 🎮 20 Smart Delivery titles that upgrade for free on Xbox Series X|S 💚 All available at launch https://twitter.com/Xbox/st... Makes sense since PS4 can play 50 PS2 games and Xbox One can play 42 OG Xbox Games Xbox One can also play 577 360 games whereas PS4 can play 0 PS3 games PSN store has 2976 PS4 games and MS Store has 1899 Xbox One games Missing numbers of PS Store games are japanese maybe???
I wonder how many next gen games other companies could have made with those hours
You think QA testers make the games?
Nah but I think QA testers could have been testing games built for new gen.
Are you for real?
This is damning as far as I'm concerned. Only a minority of Gamers want to play old games on their new Systems. The MAJORITY of gamers want to play NEW games. Maybe you should have learned about the horrible situation Halo: Infinite was in over a year ago and put some more man-power into that game, maybe put some more hours into that game's development? How come you couldn't tell a long time ago that game was in a garbage state? Whatever. You're starting the new gen, neck and neck with Sony. Lets see who ends up getting the early lead. Lets see who ends up winning the race.
If the "majority" of gamers want to play new games - i doubt Sony and MS would waste time making that a selling point then. I think they might know a bit more about what the "majority" wants and As with any new launch - current gen games will still run it for at least another year and if "majority" of people don't upgrade asap - friends still want to play with friends.
" If the "majority" of gamers want to play new games - i doubt Sony and MS would waste time making that a selling point then. " And yet PS4 didn't have it and will be probably will be the 2nd highest selling Playstation console. The Switch absolutely dominated Xbox and all without BC.
@Chevalier Both the Switch and PS4 got a ton of ports and collections of old games, though.
you'd have a point if the new hardware did nothing to these previous games but it enhances them to literally make them into whole new experiences. And for those who never had and XBO this gen... this would be the first time many of them played some of these games. So you can see them as old (existing) but for those who never played it, it's all new to them. And they get to experience some of them even better than those of us who played them on the XBO. Jedi Fallen Order in 60fps on the SX is now a reality where the Pro/OneX only did 40-50fps. New hardware can make old games feel like new.
New experiences? Get off it. You'll get used to the 60 fps in an hour. They are the same games taht you've already played
@laserap, why is there always an assumption you have already played every game? I work for a living and have a constant backlog. I still have Jedi Fallen Order and Squadrons to play for example, I'm not starting those now knowing they will both be enhanced. People make BC sound like games have to be 10 years old, but very recent games will also get the benefit.
Got it all on PC, no need to buy a brand new console to play xbox games.
@ Darth just because someone didn’t play ET the extraterrestrial doesn’t mean it’s a new game regardless of Bering the first time played. Rancid food isn’t (new) fresh food just because you haven’t had it before
Yes, because you played them on console in the first place, like the peasant you are.
Hey look, Minecraft and GTAV are still the most popular games on the planet. So much for your theory.
That may be true but that's not moving the art or the industry forward. When I see GTA top the chats over and over it makes me a little sad to be honest.
To each their own. I think the titles that most move the medium forward are often discarded as indie trash by many because they aren't "AAA" blockbuster SP narratives. I deal with it because gaming is so widespread that there's something for everyone. And what's new to you, isn't new to everyone else. There's been literally thousands of games released this gen. I didn't play them all, did you? All this whining is just fanboy nonsense. MS has 30+ teams making "new" games. We all know that they're coming. But for the short term, this is a nice talking point for the kids to rant about. Tiresome, but not surprising.
Just some context, not making any sort of point because I intent to play at least a few BC games and I know times change but; https://www.usgamer.net/amp...
speak for yourself. I have a huge backlog of PS4 games. Now I don't have to keep both systems hooked up. That's a good thing. Stop complaining.
How about who the hell actually cares? Both consoles are obviously going to be successful. I am never going to understand the nerdy, tribalistic mentality behind these fanboy console wars. I play freaking games. They're f*****g videogames. If I'm enjoying a game, I don't give a single s**t if there's another plastic box that sold more than the one I'm playing on. It takes no entertainment value away from me.
Which is why your in every thread talking crap about PlayStation right. You’re just another clown who says “oh I’m such altruistic gamer” to make thier opinion seem valid but act exactly the same as the people you criticize.
@the realted said “ I am never going to understand the nerdy, tribalistic mentality behind these fanboy console wars.” Grab a pen and write this down ready It’s fun to make others 🤬 with facts and jokes. Pen down
Yes, only a minority of gamers want to play old games on their new systems. That's why remasters and rereleases sell so bad, glad there's none of those horrible things on the market...
@Zhipp "Both the Switch and PS4 got a ton of ports and collections of old games, though." You suggesting Xbox didn't as well?! Halo MCC, Gears HD, Rare Replay, Onimusha, Resident Evil games, Balders Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Borderlands collection, Bioshock collection, Assassin Creeds collection, Megaman collection. These weren't ports and recollections on Xbox?! You make it sound like Nintendo and Playstation have far more of theses when Xbox has just as many.
So all the games you already bought you're just willing to let them go. I own hundreds of games and if I couldn't play them again I'd be pissed. Sure I could keep every console I own but having the new consoles that can play those games and also make them play better is a great thing. Just imagine if you bought a new phone and all the apps, music and movies you bought on the old phone didn't work on the new phone.
Wow , why you getting so upset friend. It’s really not worth stressing yourself out over. Arguing won’t get you anywhere
Is there any more info on how series S back compat games will work?
It has the exact same list as the series X. Isn't it? Just not as steady performance.
I’m pretty sure it runs all the same games as the series X . Stabilizing the frame rate and dynamic resolution. The S doesn’t have access to the Xbox one X build of the games though. I heard that on game spot
Gotcha so it's got the standard upscale and fps improvements just not the series X game build.
Father_Merrin sorry it wouldn’t let me reply to your comment. IYeah it’s just standard on the series S . The series X has access to Xbox one X code at minimum for games not upgraded yet. The series s doesn’t have that so a separate patch will prob be made for that . Unless it’s a new game being designed for both Hope that helps 👍
How many hours did they tested next gen. Games?
I'm sure those 23 1st party studios are hard at work doing just that. No need to worry.
Imagine putting that effort into making new games!
Bleeding Edge, Grounded, Battletoads, Ori sequel, Gears Tactics, Minecraft Dungeons, Wasteland 3, Microsoft Flight Sim. Edit: I'm not sitting here telling you to like those games, but we really need to get rid of this "no games" BS idea.
He said “new” not “no”.
@Ron_Danger: Bleeding Edge, Grounded, Gears Tactics (completely new genre), Minecraft Dungeons (completely new genre). Upcoming games: Hellblade 2, Avowed, Echo Generation, Everwild, Exo One, Exomecha, Fable, Forza Motorsport, Scorn, and more. Anymore goal post moving or are you guys just looking for evidence that only supports your desire to keep complaining about lack of "new" games being developed? Even though they, in 2020, put out all of those "new" games while working on the BC of XSX.
Are any of these launch games? 23 studios and no 1st party games at launch any way you slice it is awful. The Switch had MORE games than Xbox studios in less time with less studios just shows how badly Xbox studios have been managed.
***Are any of these launch games?*** there's that new goal post.
"there's that new goal post." Its not a goalpost. Its not accepting excuses for mismanagement. Xbox has had the same amount of studios roughly as Playstation all generation and had less to show for it. Explain how Nintendo with LESS studios managed to outpace Xbox studios with less time? It's baffling that Nintendo has had more exclusives than Xbox studios in HALF the time. A whole generation of lacklustre mediocre and low production quality and quantity is just inexcusable. If you're okay with making excuses for them then good for you for settling, but, its not okay for everyone else. Even if they're showing more promise that's NOT an excuse for this garbage start with no 1st party studio games even really sniffing a release near launch.
***Its not a goalpost. Its not accepting excuses for mismanagement.*** One does not deny the other. It can be both. *** Xbox has had the same amount of studios roughly as Playstation all generation and had less to show for it.*** Again, over the last two years, this is just not true and this year alone they have put out more games than Sony. They also have more announced first-party games than Sony at this time. Whether you like it those games, whether they're higher quality, that's not the point. The point is the complaint of a lack of games. I don't know why you're bringing up the long past when the topic is about them doing exactly what the original complaint was about, which was new games. How many years must pass with them putting out more games than Sony before their history is no longer a factor? How many studios do they have to buy and support? At what point, so that we can avoid more goal post moving, would you accept that Microsoft is putting out a good number of games? Not games you like, because that's 100% subjective (I dislike Gears and Halo, but I don't ignore those games), but just games. Or are we going to continue to goal post this whole argument until you get to a point where you get to claim victory no matter how much Microsoft does to deny the idea that they are not making new games or have not made more games than Sony in the last year and are set to continue to produce a similar number of games next year?
"Again, over the last two years, this is just not true and this year alone they have put out more games than Sony. " That's a lie. Please get your facts straight. Xbox did NOT release more games than Sony the last 2 years. They won't be releasing more games this year either. Forget about goalpost when you make shit up? 2019 Xbox Gears 5, Age of Empires, Outerworlds PS4 MLB 19, Days Gone, Blood and Truth, Concrete Genie, Death Stranding 2020 Xbox - Bleeding Edge, Grounded, Battletoads, Ori sequel, Gears Tactics, Minecraft Dungeons, Wasteland 3, Microsoft Flight Sim. PS4 - Dreams, MLB 20, Ghost of Tsushima, The Last of Us 2, Spiderman Miles Morales, Sackboy Big Adventure, Iron Man VR, Demon Souls, Predator Hunting Grounds As for announcing more games. What are the release dates for any of these games? You claim that Xbox studios have released more in the last 2 years. They didn't in 2019 and won't in 2020 either. Then you talk about moving goalpost then you make one by mentioning that Xbox has more announced games? 😆. They had more announced games the last while doesn't mean Sony or Nintendo studios have stopped making games. Both Nintendo and Playstation have had more releases every year over Xbox. You can check 2018, 2017, 2016 etc if you don't believe it. If you want to go through Xbox announced games like Avowed, Fables, Hellblade 2 etc. Most aren't far in development. Avowed and Fables for Example are at least 3 to 4 years out for example. Sony and Nintendo will continue to churn out games regularly in the mean time.
2019: Gears POP!, Crackdown 3. 2020: Forza Street, Wasteland Remaster, Bard's Tales Remaster, Tell Me Why
So some here were forgotten. 2019: Gears POP!, Crackdown 3. 2019 Sony - Ready Set Heroes, Medievil 2020: Forza Street, Wasteland Remaster, Bard's Tales Remaster, Tell Me Why 2020 -Sony - Patapon 2 Remastered, Astros Playroom, Spiderman Remastered ""Again, over the last two years, this is just not true and this year alone they have put out more games than Sony. " So again I will say again what you said is demonstrably a lie.
Not saying it doesnt have games! I just wished they hade put those 500.000 thousands of hours into making new games. Because i think BC is overated. But if youre into retro gaming good for you!
People have different jobs. If those people weren't working on BC, they likely wouldn't have jobs. I'd rather more RPGs get made rather than sports games, but here we are. Edit: My point being that just because they are doing this doesn't mean if they weren't that there would suddenly be a new game and that wanting there to be more of something than something else is common in general and not a reason to dictate why something should have happened. The most played/purchased game of this generation is a game from last generation, btw.
I can't understand this train of thought, do you actually think they have game developers doing the QA for backcompat?
Just my wish. Well they are being payed for doing a job. You could pay others för doing another job. Wouldnt mind having a RPG in the works with 500.000 thousands development hours in it!
I'll be playing cod, creed and cyberpunk ( whenever it drops) on series x. As well as red dead2
Ac and cyberpunk as well on my X when they release
Yeah the One X is awesome. Me too probably.
Why are you talking up multi platform game? They’ll look better on pc and they’ll be on PlayStation the same day.
Talking up? Literally said that's what I'll be playing. I didn't say they'll look great be goty or to go buy them. I guess the real question is, why shouldn't I look forward to them? Lol you mad!
Kinda curious to see how backwards compatibility will work on the Series S pretty sure people are not going to rebuy their games they all ready own just to play them on the Series S.
Its a digital only console and so.. digital only software.
Feeling bad for the guys who had to play some of the worst Xbox games to see if they worked
At lest they didn’t have to play Halo Infinite heh.
Too easy. That game barely exists
To think it might be a total of 16 years, give or take a couple of years, by the time they release something that is not Halo, Forza, State of Decay or Sea of Thieves. It's kind of insane how they have kept people on the hook for this long. They got Star Citizen beat by a country mile.
Im very happy to see this time put in. To anyone thinking this pulled away resources or diverted attention, ms os big enough to have a division dedicated to bc, and has made a huge selling point of being able to play all your games on one device. Seems pretty smart that they would pour investment into a key component.(I honestly wish sony would do the same, imagine games like twisted metal and brace fencer mushashi upscaled and playing at 60fps at no additional charge?) As for the silly argument that they arent looking forward, yes, they have no major internal releases with the new gen, but they have developed the most powerful platform for developers to build on and over the past 2 years acquired more than 20 studios to develop new games. Its be silly to think those studios will work on bc titles. So while at launch, gamepass is about the only major value add, the future is very promising.
I appreciate the back compat Xbox. My backlog is looong so it's great to see it be fully supported. My Xbox backlog for those who are interested: Alan Wake DLC Voodoo Vince RM Dead Space 2 Condemed 1 & 2 Splinter Cell Conviction Blinx Dead Rising 3 DLC No. 4 We Happy Few Prey 2017 CoD Ghosts Campaign Dirt 4 Played most be never finished.
I'd say skip Dirt 4. I have been working on the Plat for PS4 and its so damn repetitive.
Platinum? Wow hardcore. I don't think I've ever 100 percented a game before. I just beat it on its hardest difficulty and try to unlock at least some of the coolest stuff.
Yeah, that's what I do, trophy hunt. https://psnprofiles.com/ska...
Holy smokes you've beaten like every game evur
