Next Xbox will be "forward compatible"

Claims popular internet rumour

According to the internet, the next Xbox will be "forward compatible", meaning current Xbox 360 games will be enhanced on Microsoft's next console. Pass the salt.

That's according to a "source" belonging to site Xbox Evolved anyway.


According to the site current Xbox 360 games will see graphical improvements, such as increased draw distance, framerate and more anti-aliasing, on the next Xbox, similar to how PC games will look better on more high-end hardware.

"Our sources indicate that Microsoft is in a stage of 'testing the waters' before they nail down the final specs of the new machine. Introducing these options early on to developers means that the games they make for the Xbox 360 will have no life on the next platform," says the site.

Sounds likely enough to us. What do our technically apt readers think? Sound off below.
