As part of a glut of new information about its upcoming next-generation console, the Xbox Series X, Microsoft reaffirmed its commitment to backwards compatibility.
Xbox chief Phil Spencer says that all existing Xbox One games, including backward-compatible Xbox 360 and original Xbox games, will not only play on Xbox Series X, they will benefit from “steadier framerates, faster load times and improved resolution and visual fidelity.”
Additionally, all Xbox One gaming accessories will work on Xbox Series X.
Spencer also confirmed that Xbox Game Pass, the subscription service that provides members access to a library of games, will continue on Xbox Series X. And Xbox first-party games, such as Halo Infinite, will be included in Game Pass at their launch. Xbox Game Pass currently boasts a library of well over 100 games, with more games added every month.
