  • How does Xbox Series backward compatibility work?

    For years,

    the Xbox brand has made it a point of honor to impose backward compatibility on these different machines.

    . A policy to be welcomed as it respects the history of video games in general and that of our favorite games in particular. And on the Xbox One and Xbox Series consoles, this philosophy makes perfect sense. So there's nothing stopping you from using your old Xbox and Xbox 360 games on an Xbox One or One X. Often times, games get game-changing enhancements. For example, the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV gets a hell of a makeover on Xbox One, with 60fps animation. As for the Series X and S, they can accommodate most hits from older Xboxes (One included) and visual improvements are also part of the game.

    How does backward compatibility actually work? The simplest in the world ! Just insert your Xbox or Xbox 360 disc into an Xbox One or One X and the console does the rest. Indeed, the game is downloaded (if it is part of the backward compatible titles) and you just have to launch it. Note that the disc in question must still remain in the console for the operation to work correctly. As for the 360 ​​games in their digital version, they can be downloaded again without a hitch. We find the same approach for the Xbox Series X. After inserting one of your old Xbox, Xbox 360 or Xbox One titles, it is installed immediately (again, if it is part of the backward compatible games).You also have the option of transferring your old game in digital format to Series X or Series S with a hard drive. Remember that the Xbox Series S is totally dedicated to dematerialized and therefore has no disc drive. Suddenly, it turns out to be impossible to insert your old games in physical format. Whatever process you use, be aware that it is completely free. No need to have an Xbox Live Gold subscription to take full advantage of Xbox Series backward compatibility. However, to use certain features related to Xbox Live Gold (such as online multiplayer), subscription is obviously necessary.Remember that the Xbox Series S is totally dedicated to dematerialized and therefore has no disc drive.

    Regarding your old backups, you can also repatriate them to your new machine

    . It's still nicer to be able to pick up where you left off and find all the unlocked content. For your data related to the very first Xbox, there is unfortunately no solution officially implemented by Microsoft. No dedicated server had been set up at the time and the backup recording was stored directly on the console's hard drive. On the other hand, with the Xbox 360 it is quite feasible if we go through the cloud. Beforehand, it is essential to have a stable internet connection and an account on Xbox Live. Once these two conditions are met, simply go to the “Settings” menu of your 360 and select “System”, “Storage”, “Games and Applications” and validate the title concerned. Next,you can send your data to the cloud and later retrieve it on your Xbox One. This automatically detects new data present on the server. To transfer saves made on Xbox One to a Series, you have the choice of weapons again! You can copy the files to an external hard drive or USB stick and save them to your Series X or S. Or, just go to the cloud once again and put your data there to download it to your new console.You can copy the files to an external hard drive or USB stick and save them to your Series X or S.

    What Xbox One games are playable on Xbox Series consoles?

    Thousands of Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One titles are backwards compatible with the Xbox Series.

    To check if your favorite title is taken into account by Xbox One Backward Compatibility or Xbox Series Backward Compatibility, just consult the list posted by Microsoft

    . Knowing that this one is regularly updated and covers the majority of the productions which made the heyday of the brand. Passing on Xbox Series, the games of the One (already well armed technically) find themselves boosted with hormones. Because the backward compatibility implemented by Microsoft is not satisfied with the minimum union and it brings significant improvements. In addition to enjoying much faster loading times thanks to the SSD hard drive, your favorite games are above all much more pleasing to the eye. With deeper animation, more detailed lighting, and finer picture resolution, some titles are downright transfigured with the 1080p / 60fps combo. Sometimes it is possible to get a 4K display and 60 frames simultaneously, depending on the games (and the will of the publishers).It is important to emphasize that it is on Xbox Series X that we can find the most powerful configurations. The S Series is a little less powerful and is more like an Xbox One X technically. This does not prevent it from ensuring by offering most often to Xbox One games of 1080p and 60 frames per second.

    Are all Xbox accessories compatible with the new consoles?

    Despite all the efforts made regarding the Xbox Series backward compatibility of games, it's not that easy on the accessories side.

    . As for the controllers from the first Xbox or the Xbox 360, they cannot work on the One and Series ranges. It is the same for the Kinect camera or any other accessory of the 360. On this point, we must draw a line on the past and move forward! The good news is that we are more flexible with the Xbox One and Series. Thus, many accessories related to the Xbox One can find a nice home ground on the Series range. This applies, for example, to Xbox wireless controllers or Xbox Elite 1 and 2 wireless controllers. The same goes for stereo headsets. We must also welcome the inclusion of the adaptive controller (intended for people with disabilities), which works perfectly on the Xbox Series. There is still one exception, and not the least:the Xbox One Kinect camera is not supported on the Xbox Series. For accessories that are not directly marketed by Microsoft, we advise you to consult the manufacturer's website.

    The next expected Xbox Series X / S game releases

    Already equipped with a game library able to convince the most jaded players, the Xbox Series will welcome a large range of hits during the coming months. If you like Japanese productions that combine role-playing and action, you should definitely watch the release of Tales of Arise. It is on September 10, 2021 that the new episode of this great saga will sign its return. With particularly neat graphics and extremely nervous fights, the title of Bandai Namco is likely to make noise. Set for October 7, 2021, Far Cry 6 is also eagerly awaited because the various trailers are particularly attractive. The action takes place here on a vast tropical island (totally fictional) and you play as a soldier named Dani Rojas.Your objective is to bring down dictator Anton Castillo with the help of your allies. To best help you, Ubisoft's FPS offers a complete weapon and vehicle creation system. Note the contribution of actor Giancarlo Esposito (seen in particular in Breaking Bad, The Boys or The Mandalorian) in the role of the ruthless Castillo.

    The month of October also welcomes another title for the less warrior in the person of Battlefield 2042. Scheduled for October 22, 2011, it may again thrill fans of military FPS. Exclusively multiplayer (no single player mode is actually present), this new episode offers battlefields more gigantic than ever. Up to 128 players will be able to come together and use the various weapons and gadgets offered by this not-so-distant future. The game of Dice also brings in its bag various novelties such as a system of specialties for soldiers and environments more dynamic than ever.

    Another big release to keep in mind: Forza Horizon 5 on November 9, 2021! Even more beautiful and complete than its predecessor, it will undoubtedly confirm the supremacy of the license in the field of open world racing games. As for Halo infinite, its mission is to cause a sensation during the holiday season. The fans are sure to expect him around the corner. Finally, it is imperative to keep in mind the date of January 22, 2022 with the release of the long-awaited Elden Ring. Why so much enthusiasm for this title? Quite simply because it brings together the FromSoftware studio (Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro) with George RR Martin, the author of the Game of Thrones novels. Combining action and role-playing, this extremely dark fantasy title is however reserved for a mature audience. And s'it is as demanding in its gameplay as other FromSoftware productions, it is better to prepare psychologically. One thing is certain anyway: the Xbox Series X and S consoles are not ready to rest!
