Xbox Two Update: Microsoft Planning To Incorporate Game Streaming and Backwards Compatibility In Next Console
If you’re updated on the latest about the new Xbox console, you’ve probably heard that we won’t be seeing the Xbox Two anytime soon. Majority of estimates suggest that the new console will not be arriving until three years from now – a pretty convincing guess considering the recently released Xbox One X is still the most powerful console on the market. With this, we’re pretty much convinced that Microsoft isn’t rushing things when it comes to their successor.
Though this is the case, it still does not erase the fact that we all want to know what’s working behind the scenes. Now, it seems like we don’t have to wait for more updates anymore as details on the new console have just surfaced online.
According to Thurrott, Microsoft is going to put more emphasis on game streaming and backward compatibility for the Xbox Two. They say that both features will be integrated directly into the device, removing the need for additional setups.
The piece’s author, Brad Sams also shared that Microsoft plans to accomplish this feat by utilizing its cloud servers to dynamically change the landscape of in-game environments. However, the endeavor, Sam said, is still being pursued by Microsoft and it does not mean that the Xbox Two will only cater for the streaming service. Sam indicates that local gaming is still a fundamental part of the new console and is necessary for the long term.
Sams also shared that Microsoft intends to incorporate the backwards compatibility feature to the Xbox Two, which is understandable seeing as it’s done so well on the Xbox One and the Xbox One X. With this being the case, Comic Book notes that it’s plausible for Xbox One’s library of game titles to come readily available for the Xbox Two as well games as well as current backwards compatible titles.
Though, as of present, all of these are just mere conjectures, it’s still pretty exciting to hear more about the Xbox Two, especially features which are going to see an appearance on the next installation. But still, as always, we urge our readers to take these updates with a grain of salt as Microsoft has yet to issue confirmations and reports about the console.
