Microsoft announced this week that it is adding backwards compatibility with original Xbox games to the existing Xbox 360 compatibility already available on Xbox One.

The company delivered this E3 when head of Xbox Phil Spencer took the stage to confirm that original Xbox games will be playable later this year on Xbox One.

The Xbox One X is powered by a six-teraflop Polaris GPU which is 1.4 times better compared to its rival, Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro. "The X will have even more trouble because the S is at $249 and so is the PS4". It's a little bit easier when you have a fixed spec, when you think about Xbox, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X. And you think of the variable specs of the PC space, so you're taking a fixed-spec PowerPC emulator and then moving it over to run on PC, so there's a lot of work there.

In another news, Microsoft's Mike Ybarra revealed on Twitter the working of original Xbox backward compatibility is not going to be different than what we have seen with Xbox 360: Put Disc In, Download and Play.

I don't think it's good for our industry if we got into a point where people are holding back the technical innovation of game developers based on a marketing deal.

"I've said I want to bring Game Pass to the PC". He was also asked about the UI for Xbox One X and whether it will be the same as the standard Xbox One. The console also supports 4K games, which is now at the top edge of video game technology.

"I could stand up and show some videos of things I think might come in the next three years". If I were to make a comparison on the capabilities with the 6 teraflops and the extra RAM we have in the machine, the true 4K gaming, which is more than just the 8 million pixels; you've got HDR, spacial audio support with Dolby Atmos. "People want to know what the roadmap in the future looks like, and that's my job to deliver it to them".
