Rumor: Add-on for Durango Will Allow Backwards Compatibility
Filed under: DURANGO

We're just coming full circle on all this, aren't we? Now that reports are coming out that the next Xbox console will not be backwards compatible, a new rumor has leaked saying that Microsoft has a back-up plan to circumvent this problem. They will be selling an add-on for the Durango that will allow users to play all Xbox 360-compatible games on the new console. This includes XBLA games and digital downloads.

Remember the HD DVD add-on for the Xbox 360? It sounds like it will be something like that.

This is the point where Microsoft just needs to have their press conference revealing the new console already so we can stop the rumor mill. I'm starting to get a headache.

They could be purposely leaking the rumours to see what they can get away with. I.e. if the giant uproar about lack of backwards-compatibility subsides with the rumour that an addon is available, then they'd invest time and effort into making that addon..

So we have to shell out 500 bucks then buy another add on to play our old games. No thanks..
  Cheddar: Or you can just plug back in your 360. Gasp.

Unless it is damn cheap. All in all I think I will enjoy my Ps4 !

The rumour I heard is they'll be releasing a stripped down version of the Xbox 360 similar to the Wii Mini. It will not have a disc drive and will support digital content only (Games on Demand, Xbox LIVE Arcade, etc.).

With so many rumours flying around, I'm simply going to wait for the official announcements to see what's going on.
  Cheddar: Interesting way to curb used-game sales.
Juxtapose: Quite so.

*sigh* I give up on all these rumors. Just reveal the damn console already!

NOPE, STILL DON'T CARE ABOUT THIS.
  EricHalfBee: Me neither. You love your 360 and your old 360 games.…

My last console was the PS2. I spend all my money for my PC. All hail the great PC!
