    5 times more news on x-box here than any others console put together… bias alert 😉

    Having backwards compatibility is unusual in the gaming world, but making all of these original games work, although a nice idea, comes far too late – my wife sold all of her old games years ago. Since this is always done at a tremendous loss, it would be nice to have a heads up a few years sooner.

      When the original Xbox was announced using an x86 platform, this was what everyone imagined. A PC platform that would allow for future software compatibility. Unfortunately the i****s that designed the 360 broke all that when they opted for a PowerPC-based system. If only they had used an x86 processor, almost all titles would be backwards compatible.
