Microsoft Confirms Association With Sony on Cross-Platform Play

Microsoft and Sony are Talking About Cross Platform Play

If Microsoft wants to ensure the Xbox One X's success, it needs to start securing more exclusive games that we actually want to play.

Microsoft Store's listing of the original Xbox One model (refurbished).

Spencer has also suggested that several of the in-game features for these Original Xbox games may not be fully functional on the latest Microsoft console.

Microsoft launched the Xbox One S a year ago with a slimmed down look in a robot white style, and also stopped manufacturing the Xbox 360. The US site only has a listing for refurbed versions, while they're marked as "Out of Stock" in the United Kingdom store.

It confirms that the Xbox audience is looking for hardware that is both powerful and innovative, which the Xbox One X most certainly is on both counts. Microsoft is now focusing on the Xbox One S for the entry console, and its upcoming Xbox One X for hardcore Xbox fans.

It is now being speculated that these games could have been part of the old listing for backwards compatible Xbox 360 games for Xbox One. As it is a limited period offer, you need to hurry up and it will be valid only as long as the stocks last.

Do you still have your Xbox 360?

Microsoft released the Xbox One, the successor to the popular Xbox 360, in 2013. The smaller console was widely accepted and praised over the original.

During a meeting with DualShockers, Greenberg said that such titles will have a lasting and beneficial impact for Xbox One.

The device launched almost four years ago, and reports state the Xbox One struggled to meet the sales of rival Playstation 4. It thus makes no sense for the original Xbox to still be in production or sale. It also comes ahead of the launch of the Xbox One X, Microsoft's answer to the PlayStation 4 Pro, which adds "true 4K" visuals and improved framerates for a select number of compatible games.
