At E3 2015, Microsoft blew the doors off with their announcement that the Xbox One would play Xbox 360 games here in the relative near future. Sony showed off, well, nothing really in terms of hardware features or enhancements and said that they were surprised that Microsoft could pull this off. They also disclosed that they have absolutely no plans to put forth this kind of engineering effort required to make this happen on their console. If you still want to play PS3 games, go buy a cheap PS3. You're welcome.
Microsoft surprised everyone earlier this week by bringing some Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One. Sony was equally startled by Microsoft’s announcement. "It was surprising," says Sony’s Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida in an interview with Eurogamer. "I didn't think it was possible. There must be lots of engineering effort." Microsoft has built a special Xbox 360 emulator than runs on the Xbox One console to support the old titles.
