Microsoft hints at better backwards compatibility for Xbox One X

XBox One S Bundles to Suit Any Gamer's Wishlist

"We're close, we're really close", Xbox's chief Phil Spencer told GameSpot when he was asked about the status of the development.

"There's some stuff we're going to talk about in that space in terms of how compatibility's going to work on [Xbox One] X specifically that I think people will find pretty interesting". "Same with Nintendo. The relationship with Nintendo on this front has been strong. That's a reason they go buy my console", he said. Gamers were just required to purchase a digital copy of the game on any of the supported platforms, which then enables them to download a second copy on the other system. The Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle comes with a 500GB Xbox One S, download codes for Minecraft, Minecraft Explorers Pack, and Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1 - The Complete Adventure. "They should talk about what their view is..." According to Spencer, it is "a real struggle making comments about their motivation or timelines", which seemingly describes Sony's lack of interest in the matter. That reason is not going to go away. We know in the gaming segment, there are a lot of people who play games casually and there's also people where gaming is their number one hobby. Nevertheless, the Xbox executive pointed out that he is "never going to call anything a lost cause". I don't think everybody is taking that same approach to the ecosystem. It's certainly not a technical issue as Fortnite accidentally allowed cross-play between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users recently before turning the ability off. Rocket League developer Psyonix is merely waiting on the go-ahead from both companies to enable cross-play. "So I don't know what would change".

Child Marriage Act: Rights panels assail senators for rejecting amendment

"I have a little dashboard I go to and I can see all the games [and] where they are in getting approvals in the pipeline. I guess we'll see; I feel very confident in the product we have coming to market". I think the best signal we had so far is when Black Ops II landed and that month it hit NPD's Top 10 that month for game sales. "The games look great".

Speaking generally about the appeal of cross-play, Spencer said it allows the multiplayer environments for games to stay rich, because the player pools are larger than they otherwise might be.
