Microsoft Considering Adding Xbox 360 Emulation to Xbox One
Filed under: XBOX ONE, XBOX 360

Frank Savage, Xbox partner development lead, has said that Microsoft has not ruled out a possibility for emulating Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One.

"There are [plans]," he said at Microsoft's Build conference last week. "But we're not done thinking them through yet, unfortunately.

"It turns out to be hard to emulate the PowerPC stuff on the X86 stuff. So there's nothing to announce, but I would love to see it myself."

Last November, Albert Penello said that such an emulation service would be unlikely.

"It's really cool and really problematic, all at the same time, insofar as it's really super cool if you happen to have the world's most awesome internet connection," he said.

Xbox 360 emulation would make several people happy, and would possibly move more units. But if you have to buy the games again, like it appears to be the case for the PlayStation Now, color me uninterested.

X-Box One would be a great value if they did add 360 emulation to the system. I mean come on Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 have the ability to set compatibility modes for older games. So if it is possible on PC, why couldn't it be done on consoles with a bit of tweaking. In a sense it seems the console makers don't value their customers as much as the PC makers and the PC OS programmers. Just my 2 cents worth.
