Q:    Will Xbox One be backward compatible with my existing games?

A:    Xbox One hardware is not compatible with Xbox 360 games. We designed Xbox One to play an entirely new generation of games—games that are architected to take full advantage of state-of-the-art processors and the infinite power of the cloud. We care very much about the investment you have made in Xbox 360 and will continue to support it with a pipeline of new games and new apps well into the future.

Doesnt stop them from making an emulator.

Besides someone from MS did breifly mention something that went along the same lines as the PS3 .

I expect to see a lot of these old games in an XBox One Arcade format.

Personally disappointed as I love going back and playing the old games, but I can't think of many Game systems that were truly backwards compatible. I am sure that when I do get the new gen... I won't want to go back and play the older gen games as much as I loved them. And.. if I do... I may just keep my old XBox in order to do so.

When Nintendo 64 came out I don't think I ever went back and played my NES. It sucks, but its pretty much always been the way with console gaming.

That was something I remember them mentioning.

PS2 was PS1 compatable.

You know there is an emulator you can get for the Wii , and to run it your dont have to mod your console at all. You just need an Indiana Jones game to make the sytem reboot and it loads the Homebrew Browser. Then once its on there it stays on there even with new Wii updates.

I even play Arcade Games on an emulator on that one. too bad though my wifes laptop cant play games like that.

Dont worry you'll see Raid and Standoff in some sort of DLC in BO3.
