Microsoft ‘thinking' about Xbox 360 emulation on Xbox One
Microsoft’s Frank Savage has said the platform holder is thinking about implementing Xbox 360 emulation on Xbox One – making your shiny new console play your old games.
According to Kotaku, Savage was asked if there are any plans for an Xbox 360 emulator on Xbox One during Microsoft’s Build developer conference.
“There are, but we’re not done thinking them through yet, unfortunately,” he replied.
“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.”
The PS4 is not backwards-compatible with the PS3, although Sony’s PlayStation Now service will apparently provide access to PS3 games via the cloud.
