If you're anything like me, you would have preferred it if the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 arrived with backwards compatibility natively on the systems. I have a huge library of games for both the 360 and PS3, and there are still some last-gen titles arriving that I'd like to play without sacrificing entertainment system space or dragging stuff out of my closet.
Sony's working on a solution to that problem with PlayStation Now, an upcoming service that streams PlayStation 3 games to the PS4 and PS Vita. Microsoft? Until now, they've been relatively silent on the issue.
During an event last week at Microsoft surrounding the Xbox One's use of the Window's technology, Partner Development Lead Frank Savage was asked a question from an audience member. That question?
"Are there plans for an Xbox 360 emulator on Xbox One?"
Savage started by saying that there are, in fact, plans. He went on, "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."
Nothing to announce, but there are plans to make Xbox 360 emulation happen on the Xbox One.
If and when this goes down, I'll be diving into the bargain bins for Xbox 360 games at a constant clip. I played a lot of titles from the previous generation, but I missed a ton as well.
