Xbox Executive Phil Spencer responded to a question related to the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility January 2017 on his Twitter account. And, what resulted from his subtle hinting will definitely blow your mind.
Spencer Said It Again:
With very subtle tone, Phil Spencer replied to a question sent to him via Twitter. A fan asked him if he could pre-announce a backwards compatibility game and its titles, to which he only responded with “January looks pretty good for such”. And almost immediately, the internet went from vigilant to being berserk.
This Happened Before:
Xbox One Backwards Compatibility fans have had previous inklings about pre-announcements of this nature. After all, they stand right to go wild from the fact that Spencer had used the same subtle tone over announcing release of a Blue Dragon game backwards version before. When everybody thought it was too good to be true, the game came out a month after.
Now, Spencer once again hints calmly. But the gamers surrounding him are all standing on a rocket over the release of a possible Xbox One Backwards Compatibility January 2017.
In other news, Microsoft has announced that an optimum surround sound technology called the Dobly Atmos Surround tech will be included as one of the major features of the Xbox One tablets. With these updates, Xbox ensures its place among the classics.
Back to Spencer:
Following the heat that transpired after his hinting, Spencer elaborated in another tweet the significance of the backward compatibility.
The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility January 2017, according to Spencer:
- Allows gamers to play older versions of games without having to repackage them
