Also,According to Spencer, Xbox Series X will support backward compatibility that will allow Xbox One games to be played on the release date. Jason Ronald, partner director of the Xbox division, said, “There are thousands of titles that can be played on the Xbox One. We just want to make these games go forward with the users. We want to move the service forward with the player, including the gamer score and list of friends that the user is currently using, as well as the achievements he has played in the game so far. ” Not only does it make Xbox One games playable, but it also suggests that various statuses will be passed on to the next generation.
A major issue when supporting backward compatibility is that each generation of games is optimized for the unique hardware features of each game console. However, Xbox Series X is designed with silicon in mind, so it is possible to support strong backward compatibility.
