Why is it that my Xbox One won't play games that are made for my 360, yet it seems like current game developers are all making games that work for both generations? This seems a bit odd to me that I can play Ghosts on 360 and the Xbox One but not my old Halo games. Why? This is no different than lets say for example, World of Warcraft playing on two different PC's, one with Windows Vista and one with Windows 7.
And why are game developers doing this dual release platform? I didn't spend $500 plus dollars on a brand new console, to be held back by the masses who cannot afford to upgrade. Any title that is being released on both generations is limiting the potential of the game. I don't remember any games being dual released on the original xbox and the xbox 360. So why now? And if they are being dual released, then why don't I get the benefit of playing with my Xbox 360 friends? We are playing the same game on the same network.
And why do the 360 users get all the benefits of being an Xbox Live member yet I get none on my X1? I'd love a free movie rental or avatar item or something to replace the free game download that 360 users get.
MS, you need to do a better job of providing the same service to your Xbox One customers that I had gotten used to as a Xbox 360 customer. This new era of consoles should be treated like PC's. You've made an amazing product. Put it to work.
