Wait, people were unsure? I thought their messaging regarding BC so far had been really clear.
I thought so too but wasn’t sure when I saw that PS4 wasn’t fully BC. Someone clarified for me and then I again doubted until the Xbox person here confirmed. The Xbox twitter double confirmed so now there’s no room for doubt.

Edit: lol

I'll believe all 2437 Xbox One games are playable without error on Series X from start to finish when I see it. There are always exceptions to BC, even back with PS1 games on PS2.

I love Backwards compatibility but you don't sell it to fans, desperate move by Microsoft.

Sony has truly shit the bed when it comes to BC and quite honestly when it comes to a lot of things. MS is waaaay ahead of them. If MS price-match Sony with the Series X, that'd be something else! 😊
Isn’t the reason they went fast and narrow and 36 cu for back compat modes. Then at least they should have nailed that but it seems they did not.

Xbox's messaging is so much more on point comparative to PlayStation with the next gen stuff. Fair play to them for so quickly confirming.

They seem to be paying attention to forum and social media discussions, where as Sony seemingly don't care or are happy to just inform or clarify at their own pace.

How will you see it? Start to finish, as you said. Why is this even a demand? All your Xbox games will work, there's no reasons to think otherwise.

Which is why it's embarassing. They talked up BC a year ago in the first Wired article and now they'll have barely 100 titles available at launch. That shit's insanely bad.

Some people were really desperate to make Xbox's BC plans the same as Sony's.

So they'll try to avoid the topic of BC until launch?

It's going to be an awkward and difficult 8 months for Sony's marketing/PR team then. I wish them luck.
Nah

they didn’t mention much until yesterday so I could see them not saying much for a few more months

then they will rely on their brand and PS5 library to give them enough so that BC is a footnote

look how some people are already downplaying how BC isnot important on this forum and others who feel like BC will mostly be there

Step up your game Cerny, almost the top 100 (time played... So only online games and RPGs or super time consuming open world games) at launch isn't "doing very well" BC wise...
Just throwing it out there, but I feel like you could take what Cerny said two ways, one, in that it's literally less than the top 100 working or possibly he meant to relay that as to say that their backwards compatibility solution covers a good percentage of games, but it's incomplete at the moment.

Maybe a bit of an optimistic way to see it but I don't feel like it would be misinterting it. I will say for certain I don't like the fact that it's genuinely uncertain and so much of that is still uncertain and vague at best.

I'm going to wager that the reason why Sony is being coy about BC is because it won't be every past gen game, like it will be with Xbox.

Which is dumb. They might as well get the bad news out of the way early. It's going to come out anyways.
I suspect the same. I mean, i only want to play 10 PS4, at most, but it sucks anyway.
It is if it isn’t true. Either that or they’re awful at communication.
They are completely awful at communication.

If it wasn't their intention this is a nominee for worst double down of the year. One of the most solid pieces of info we had on the new Xbox they decide to go tinfoil hat on, and then deny all evidence showing them to be incorrect.
I literally have Game Pass Ultimate through 2022 and will upgrade my Xbox One X to a Series X day one so all the shit posts and thread whines that didn’t get moderated with conspiracies I am a Playstation stan trying to hurt Xbox’s image are toxic trash. I criticized Sony’s messaging and features yesterday and if people bothered to read better they’d understand I legit just was wanting Xbox’s on the record quote, and when they tweeted about it this afternoon I promptly reported that the statement was found. So no, I was not wishing my future purchase would be missing features and hoping to make it look shit.

Gamepass plus this fact and the fact that I don't want to spend $1500+ on a PC this year make XSX a no-brainer. Like I will probably buy two.
I was planning to buy Ampere when its released later this year, but I'm most likely going to hold off and buy XSX instead. Its going to feel weird to be a console gamer again after almost 15 years!

Just walk away, turn off the comp, take a chill pill, etc. Tomorrow is another day. You got your proof that Xbox One games will be as close to 100% now. BAD is no bueno right now

The timing of it is what made it suspect. Where was this concern a week ago?
