focus on live TV, voice and gesture controls, switching between live TV, movies, music... all sounds a bit familiar to some of us!

 

details here: Xbox One

Don't remember them mentioning that specifically, though the WHF article on the News page says it won't and I'd be amazed if they did include this. Why would you want to though? If you've got old games, you've presumably got the old console?

really gutted if they don't. yes i have the xbox 360 and the 360 games but would have sold the old console (xbox 360 ) if was able to play the  360 games on the new console which im looking to buy anyway, that way the one box could have done it all now i'll need to keep space for the 360.

Fraid you won't be able to then (if WHF's story is correct) - not that it would be worth that much then of course.

For me the idea of playing the old games has always gone out the window when a new console has arrived - they don't get a look in even though I tend to keep the old consoles.

RE: New Xbox 21st May 6pm

xbox one looks great and prob buy it but that is the worst possible thing that it simply can't play the 360 games. i have loads of 360 games bought still to play and now everyone with large collections of 360 games will have to keep an old xbox if they want to plat or replay the great titles they have collected over the years, so pointless having the 360 games without the console. i have a tv stand with 2 shelves so looks as if it's gonna be xbox one on one shelf and 360 on other shelf instead of something else like ps4 or 3d player or sky box.
