Microsoft hints at better backwards compatibility for Xbox One X

Microsoft hints at better backwards compatibility for Xbox One X

"They've been great supporters and we continue to collaborate with them", Spencer said in reference to Nintendo.

"There's some stuff we're going to talk about in that space in terms of how compatibility's going to work on [Xbox One] X specifically that I think people will find pretty interesting". Psyonix, the team behind Rocket League, previously said that cross-play is possible in its game, but it's waiting for Microsoft and Sony for permission.

"Join us at participating store locations, including flagship Microsoft Stores in NY and Sydney as well as Microsoft Store at Bellevue Square Mall and Microsoft Store at University Village, and be one of the first to get hands-on with Xbox One X", Microsoft's Bryan Schmit writes.

Do you think Sony should relent and allow cross-play between PS4 and Xbox One? We know in the gaming segment, there are a lot of people who play games casually and there are also people where gaming is their number one hobby. That's a reason they go buy my console ... I don't think everybody is taking that same approach to the ecosystem.

El Nino has contributed to higher Carbon Dioxide levels
The research team of OCO-2 said that emission of carbon was in excess during the 2015-2016 El Niño , Los Angeles Times reported. It should be noted that emissions of carbon dioxide due to anthropogenic factors has remained at the same level.

On the contrary, Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro, which is meant to compete with the Xbox One X, was launched in India, but limited availability hobbled sales of the console.

When asked if it was a lost cause, he replied, "I have a real struggle making comments about their motivation or timelines". That reason is not going to go away.

Earlier this year at E3, Microsoft announced a partnership that'll allow cross-play on Minecraft between Xbox One, the Nintendo Switch, and other platforms - with Sony the only exception. Instead, the main benefit is that users get three months of Xbox Game Pass rather than one - although whether the general public will appreciate the value of two extra months is debatable, especially when it's not quite as tangible as an actual game. If you're creating an online indie game and you're going to create five [shards] of your game-the Steam version, Xbox Live on PC, Xbox version, the PlayStation version, the Switch version creates hard matchmaking scenarios. "So I don't know what would change".
