Should I Buy An Xbox One S For Backwards Compatibility?
« on: April 18, 2019, 08:01:26 am »
Hi Ladies & Gents,

I've been looking online and seen that Xbox One S Consoles are going for a decent £150... I admit here and now there are barely 1-2 Xbox One titles I even have interest in but the rise of the consoles backwards compatibility is appealing...

Are games like Final Fantasy XIII BC in Native 4K? Because while I could nab one of these cheap now, but in time I may want abckwards compatibility on a 4K system - I currently still have a 32' 1080P Samsung HDTV... I do have a 43' Toshiba 4K TV... but it's simply too big for my sitting area :P

I only bought a 360 last year cheap to play original Xbox & 360 titles, which I am quite happy with the bundle I've got, not all work on Xbox One, but I think most do, I'l have to compare through lists online later.

I’d say as long as the games you want to play are available you should do it.  I actually just got another 360 last year because the games I was looking to play weren’t on the BC list.

I think it's more wanting to play games to a better standard. I've always been fine with games graphics from a technical level but when it comes to presentation through resolution I'm immensely picky - I've bought many PS3 to PS4 Remasters purely on the 720p to 1080p upgrade and I can clearly see the difference. One of the reasons I bought the 360 was due to this, so instead of buying titles on the PS2 if there was a 360 version available I'd get them - Just Cause, Gun, Disney's Cars, Bully, Burnout: Revenge etc.

Also seeing these Xbox One Enhanced BC titles... they really do look impressive - Final Fantasy XIII looks like how I'd imagine a PS4 Remaster to be and that's using the original disc!

Here's a list of all the games with Xbox One X enhancements:

I will say though, even if a game's not on that list, there are noticeable improvements when played on a One, especially when it comes to load times, which is amazing for games like Lost Odyssey or Fallout.

I've been enjoying my Xbox one S as mostly a console to play backward compatible games on. i have the other consoles but its nice to just have one system hooked up for all 3 generations. Granted not every game works but its still a good chunk of games.

I would if I didn't have an Xbox360 it's a good thing that Microsoft are having this feature
