The binary opposition between Sony and Microsoft on console market (sorry, Nintendo) is fueled up by the coming of technologies such as VR and 4K and 2016 was the year of these discussions, we can easily say that. On the table, PS4 seems to have the technical advantage over Xbox One for now, but Microsoft has a non-technical but great advantage over Sony: It’s enormous list of (compared to PS4) backwards compatible games.

We wrote about the growing list of backwards compatible games from time to time, but it was necessary to post a full list with the recent additions of Skate 3, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3. They’re completely compatible (hmm).

Microsoft continue to have talks with nearly all developers & publishers about compability and state that hundreds more Xbox 360 games are on the way -if those companies allow such a thing. What we understand from this, is the reality of business shenanigans that make you scream for your dream (mine is “MAKE CONDEMNED 2 AVAILABLE” by the way) and then make you understand that screaming is not enough and there are a lot of paperwork to do as well as a lot of bosses to satisfy.
