I'll buy the Series X just to play Drake of the 99 Dragons from OG XBOX. /s
Too bad Sony can't make the standard x86/x64 architecture to play PS3 games. There's just so much PS3 gems to play but Cell microprocessor made it too difficult to be emulated. Sony should include the processors needed to run PS1, PS2 and PS3 games natively.

I know, because I witnessed 60 Hz -> 144 Hz upgrade on my own PC years back. A LOT smoother. 60 is not even close to what over 100 FPS brings in terms of smoothness. Hmm... Are you joking, though? I can't really tell if you're just trolling or inexperienced with high refresh panels.

First of all its nothing to bark at them about. Yes a lot of people won't care.. for a while. But eventually will. However many people will be like oh i need it and they will work on it just because it might seem easier to aim for that rather than focus on true optimizing and quality games.

I have played on PC for long time parallel to my consoles. i had my consoles for exclusives, PC for non exclusives. but eventually I found that I feel more comfortable with my console. I personally dont care much about old games, I cant remember if I have played any old games on my PC. i think you would find most of the gamers are like me who play mostly the current titles. one generation backward compatibility is enough I guess. games in consoles are more optimized too.

Because you can play games from 30 years to today on PC and at best quality, you dont really need expensive PC to run older titles. Console can't match that, but as you said Console have exclusives and it is the main reason to own them, just for exclusives.
Bradley Rodriguez, 29 May 2020What does this mean? Will I be able to play Xbox 360 games on a series X console?You can already do that on xbox one X and even play some original xbox games. It is crazy to think but you can play entire saga of ElderScrolls from Morrowind times from 2002 all the way up to Skyrim in 4k resolution on Xbox One X, and you will be able to play on One X series too all of them including Elder Scrolls 6
rokcerstarr, 29 May 2020i don't find any point in having an Xbox you can get all those games and services on a PC. Pla... moreBut they simply just don't have the software integration or
superior advanced online multiplayer experience that Microsoft can bring to the table. After all they are a software giant.
I'm sure those who own four generations of xbox will be ecstatic meanwhile the hundred million or so of other console players can continue to ignore this thing
Meanwhile, Sony only begins to catch up by giving backward compatibility for PS4 games only. Sorry Sony, but until you provide noteworthy features like Xbox Play Anywhere, I'm not going back to PlayStation.

I'd like... moreyeah bla bla bla..
no matter what.. PS will again outsell Xbox by a huge margin. dunno about the distant future but PS has been the best system till now and most prolly PS5 would be again.
Keep playing Halo 1..2..3..4..5..6..7.. same game again and again.
Flori, 29 May 2020Because there are a lot of people who want to play old games in new consoles ( me included ). ... moreI am a PS fan too but i personally don't think it's a big deal. I still have my PS3 and now playing on PS4. I regret selling my PS2. In case you wanna play a old game, you can buy always an old console. Having that backward compatibility is nice but not a must. Sometimes technical obstacles are hard to/not worth of overcome. Xbox has so limited exclusive that they would be nothing without backward compatibility. Making a powerful machine isn't the only thing for consoles, it has to be optimized and with proper games. Xbox seriously lacks at this.
What, 29 May 2020Dearest Xbox, it is with deep regret and sadness that i am gonna break this obvious news to yo... moreOld games are good because there were no freemium and dlc's. You got what you paid for. Also most of the games were not designed for people with short attention span.
Great strategy as you can resell the old, with sony you got to keep, so no more of new potential customers fishing for cheap console.
LilPhone, 29 May 2020Why not stick with a PC gaming setup or laptop? It's more versatile anyway, though of course t... morePC gaming is alot more expensive, CPU's and GPU's cost alot of money. Also some poeple prefer not having to find the right drivers, messing around with HDR and other settings so they can hit their desired frame rate (people prefer to stick in a game let it install and play).
And most importantly for me exclusives and Sony has the best.
PC's will not get Last of Us 1 or 2, Spiderman, God Of War, Uncharted 1-4, Infamous, Killzone, Gran Turismo, Shadow Of The Collosus, Ico, Last Guardian, Ratchet And Clank.
