EA exec: It is unlikely the next Xbox will play Xbox 360 games

4
An executive for Electronic Arts has recently claimed that we should not expect Xbox 360 games to run on the next-gen Xbox, nor should owners of the next Playstation expect to play PS3 games on the PS4.

Sources report that EA chief financial officer, Blake Jorgensen, said "An important thing to remember is that next-gen consoles will most likely not be backwards compatible… And if you play multiplayer on a game, you'll most likely not be able to play with someone on a different generation."

We may be able to download them again, not the hard copies though.

Mazur i don't get it. we're so advanced and all next-gen but we can't have a console that plays older console games??


I bet it has the capability to do so, but the big wig companies just don't want you to do that. Instead of playing games you already own, they want you to spend more money on new games.


yeah of course they do they want more money money money and if they don't listen to their fans then they're not going to get that money.

That right there is shady and cheap. I don't like how they scam customers. We already payed for games, we should be able to play them. Not rereleased versions of what we have already.
