E3: Xbox 360 "backwards compatibility" explained.

Heres the story: [url]http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?aid=8996[/url]. Well, I hope at least most of my games I have now will work on the 360, I will hate it if Halo CE won't playable on the 360. Apparently their goal is to get [i]all[/i] current Xbox titles playable on the 360, I hope they do. [Edited on 8/2/2005]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] HaloFighter92 *sigh* Wouldn't the ghrapics just be ramped down? jeez I always get flamed for my opinions. Not you Blackeye the budweiser guy.[/quote] No. The graphics chip in the current Xbox is Nvidia, and in the 360 it will be ATI. To play the current Xbox games on the 360 Microsoft will probably be using some form of emulation for the games. Kinda like, you can't use PC applications on a Mac, unless you use an emulation tool. Hope that cleared it up for you a little..

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] HaloFighter92 *sigh* Wouldn't the ghrapics just be ramped down? jeez I always get flamed for my opinions. Not you Blackeye the budweiser guy.[/quote]I wasn't trying to flame. It's just that a lot of the things I say can come out sounding like flaming. Your idea just wouldn't make since. If 360 games can be played on the Xbox, what's the point of buying a 360? Besides that, the xbox wouldn't be able to handle the graphics of the games. Though I have seen that some 360 games are also coming out for the Xbox, but I don't think they will do that for long.

  • Halo is the most popular game series of its time. How could M$ not make it compatible with the 360?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] HaloFighter92 So should't it be possible to play 360 games on the original? The graphics won't be as good, but if i don't have enough money for 360, I won't be able to play Halo 3, because I don't want to just buy the 360 just for Halo 3. Undersatnd? No, you [i]don't[/i][/quote] The Xbox 360 wouldn't be able to handle the graphics and such (most-likely).

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] S7RIKER They will update the software until every game is is compatable for the 360[/quote] So wait, MS will just keep on updating the 360? If so, maybe it wouldn't be a good idea to buy the 360 when it first comes out... [Edited on 8/2/2005]

  • [b]That article is [u]100% WRONG[/u]. The following statement was taken from the Xbox.com forums (under the Xbox 360 section):[/b] [i]We're not sure where this came from, and is incorrect. At launch, Xbox 360 will be backward compatible with the top Xbox games. Our goal is to have every Xbox game work on Xbox 360. [b]You will NOT need to purchase a new 'version' -- your original games will work on Xbox 360.[/b][/i] [Edited on 8/2/2005]

  • No, Halo 2 is pushing the Xbox to its limits. 360 is going to have games that the Xbox 1 will be unable to handle

  • They said they would "recompile" current games. I wonder how you "modify" your games to be playable on the Xbox 360...do you guys know?
