Everyone and their mother is talking about the Xbox One for good reason. I won't go into the details myself, but here's my ultimate review of it. I'm not sure if I'm going to get it, for a long list of reasons. I'm going to hit the high points that rang out to me during the presentation.
- Xbox One has no intention of being backwards compatible.
For me, that ruins it damn near automatically. Within the first two generations, some consoles have been backwards compatible and then stopped or weren't backwards compatible and changed to be so. Xbox One has no intention whatsoever of being backwards compatible. President of Microsoft’s Xbox Division Don Mattrick calls it "backwards thinking". Oooh, man.
