At the moment, Microsoft’s new Xbox One console is not capable of running older Xbox 360 games, although this is something that will change in the future.
At the Microsoft BUILD developer conference last week, Microsoft’s Frank Savage was asked if there are any future plans to bring Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One, you can see his response below.
AUDIENCE MEMBER: Are there plans for an Xbox 360 emulator on Xbox One?
SAVAGE: There are, 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.
This does of course not mean that you will be able to use your existing Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One, Microsoft could follow what Sony has done, and sell these games as a download for the console.
As soon as we get some more information on when Xbox 360 games will be available on the new Xbox One console, we will let you guys know.
