Xbox One Backwards Compatible?!?!

1 Comment

So… I’ve been really out of the loop the last few months. Buying a house, helping my sister with her wedding, and working 50 hour weeks has made it hard to find time for gaming. The last few weeks I’ve been staying up late (probably way too late) to replay Fallout 3 and get psyched for Fallout 4.

Now, I don’t have an Xbox One and have been kind of worried–in a vague way–about how Fallout 4 was going to play on the PS4. Been thinking about springing for an Xbox One for the sake of Elder Scrolls, Fallout, etc., because I have a weird platform loyalty for certain titles, but couldn’t justify it. I mean, I have a Wii, a PS3, a PS4, and an Xbox 360 all crammed into my entertainment center, and my PS2 waiting in the wings for when I’m feeling really nostalgic.

But then… the news hit me. Here I am reading about Fallout 4, and there’s this last, throwaway sentence with a link to another, older story. “Later this year, Fallout 3 will be playable on the Xbox One via the console’s upcoming backwards compatibility functionality.” My jaw dropped. Xbox One is going to be backwards compatible?!!?!??! OMFG that is so amazing I can’t even… breathe… breathe… YES!!!!

This is probably old news to everyone else, but I am currently in shock and thinking about finally trading up. Holy crap.

One thought on “Xbox One Backwards Compatible?!?!

  1. Its not that old, the announcement was made at E3 last month. Like the 360, it’s a patch compatibility, so adding games will be slow. But they are committed to adding a lot of their library to the list, and including digital titles as well. It was a big coup for Microsoft, but there are still more exclusives on Sony that I want.
