Microsoft Clarifies BC Updates

Microsoft has reassured players that it will continue to make old Xbox games playable on its new Xbox 360 console. An entry on one of the company’s blogs sought to clarify comments made by Xbox chief Peter Moore during an interview. Game news sites picked up on remarks that suggested Microsoft was ending a commitment to make all old Xbox games work on the new version of the console. In a blog entry, Microsoft said work on backwards compatibility was ongoing and another update was due very soon. Play time The controversial comments were made by Mr Moore during an interview recorded at the E3 show that was recently released by UK games news site Kikizo. At one point in the interview Mr Moore said: "Nobody is concerned anymore about backwards compatibility. We under promised and over delivered on that." Black was recently added to the list of compatible games He continued: "More are coming, but at some point, you just go, there’s enough, let’s move on, or people aren’t as worried about a game being backwards compatible." Many Xbox 360 watchers took this to mean Microsoft was reneging on earlier commitments to make all Xbox games playable on the 360 console. Widespread speculation and criticism on Xbox 360 fan sites led the software giant to issue some clarification on the Gamerscore blog that is written by Microsoft’s games global marketing staff. The entry on the blog said an update was due soon that would add another dozen titles to the roster of those that can already be played on the Xbox 360. More than 200 Xbox games can be played on the next-generation console. "But rest assured, we’re not done yet," it added. The blog entry said too many people cared about backwards compatibility to halt work on the development programme to move old games to the new console.
