All Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One games that are currently playable on Xbox One consoles will also be playable on Xbox Series X and S At launch-except games that require Kinect. This is according to a tweet by director of product management JasonRonald, who says that Mirosoft conducted over 500 000 hours of testing to determine this. Previously, Microsoft had said that next-gen consoles would be compatible with hundreds of Xbox 360 games, and some select franchises from the Original Xbox. And last month, Microsoft confirmed that Xbox Series S specifically will run Xbox One S versions of backwards compatible titles, omitting any existing Xbox One X enhancements. However, all titles will look and play better on Xbox Series X and S at launch, according to Ronald. Meanwhile, PlayStation 5 is backards compatible with most PS4 titles, but nothing older.
If you want to continue to pay for your hardware and games up front, then that's still an option with Microsoft's New Xboxes. As mentioned above, Xbox Series X retails for 499, while Series S costs 299. Major releases, meanwhile, seem to be priced similarly or at 10 premium to current-gen titles. The PS5 costs between 399 for its disc-free model, and 499 for its model with 4K Blu-ray drive. But going into this generation, Microsoft is making a big bet on people wanting to spend their money on games in monthly installments. For Xbox Series X, that means paying 34. 99 months for 24 months via its Xbox All Access bundle, while Series S is available for 24. 99 month. All Access will be available in 12 countries this year: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, South Korea, Sweden, UK, and the US. That more expensive than buying a console upfront, but includes With Xbox All Access is Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription service that gets you free access to over 100 Xbox One titles, including big recent titles like Tell Me Why, Ori and Will of Wisps, and Forza Horizon 4 free Games via EA Play, Xbox Live Gold, and Game streaming via xCloud. Oh, and it gives free access to over 100 Windows 10 Games as well, such as the recently released Microsoft Flight Simulator. If you'd rather buy your hardware outright and buy subscription to one of Microsoft's Game services separately, then Xbox Game Pass is available in a couple of different variations. Factor in the cost of these subscriptions to the total price of Xbox All Access, and the price of console hardware itself drops to just 10 or 20 month. Suffice it to say, if you dont have cash to make a big upfront purchase, then Microsoft still wants to get you on board for its next generation of consoles. You wont own any of the games you can play, but that trade-off you make. Microsoft's plans for the next generation of Gaming are sprawling. Two consoles that are available via subscription and can play huge chunk of your existing Xbox Games, new roster of games that will be playable on your existing Xbox One, continuing focus on PC Gaming, and game streaming service mean that, no matter what hardware you own, theres decent chance youll be able to pay Microsoft to Play its Games. Weve written before about how the focus on trying to sell subscriptions rather than premium hardware means that the true next-gen Xbox is subscription itself, rather than the hardware it plays on. Microsoft is casting its net wide, and it doesnt want any hardware requirements to get in the way of you subscribing. Sony, meanwhile, is doing what it always does it making new console, developing exclusive Games for them and selling them.
Microsoft has said you wo have to buy new hardware to enjoy its upcoming first-party titles because many of them will also come to Xbox One. Heres how Xbox chief Phil Spencer described the companys approach back in July, where he said that every Xbox Game Studios Game in the next couple of years will be playable on Xbox One. And if youre more of a PC gamer and do own an Xbox One, then Microsoft also typically releases its major titles there as well, and it says it plans to continue this policy this year. There are some caveats you should be aware of. First is that these promises only cover Microsoft first-party titles, aka those published by Xbox Game Studios. Microsoft isnt making any promises about how other publishers like EA, Ubisoft, or Activision will handle their new Games. Even then, Microsoft has been pretty explicit about the fact that this only covers its own games that will be released in the next couple of years, and there are signs that some high-profile games that have already been announced might not be coming to Xbox One. After Microsofts high-profile Xbox event in July, we note that the majority of title cards for Microsofts first-party games, including Forza Motorsport and Fable, didnt mention that they are coming to Xbox One. Finally, in case this wasnt obvious, youre probably going to see very different-looking Game if youre choose to play on base Xbox One from 2013 compared to the shiny new Xbox Series X. There even been some concern that trying to continue to support Xbox One could hold back Microsoft next-generation Games, which could give Sony advantage since it can focus all of its attention on new hardware. Spencer, as well as developers weve spoken to, have said this shouldnt be a problem, but so-call cross-gen Games on previous consoles have never made most of the latest hardware.
Xbox Games Pass gives you access to more than 200 Games to download and play on your Xbox One for One monthly fee. It's also available on the new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. If you upgrade to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you also get Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass for PC, EA Play and access to the new Cloud Gaming service, all for the same price. You can download games and play them as often as you like, as long as you continue to pay a monthly fee. Some titles might become unavailable as others are add, but you also have the option of buying any of the collection outright at discount prices. Xbox One, Xbox 360 and original Xbox Games are part of the line-up, latter two through backward compatibility, so there are plenty of top titles to choose from. Next-gen Games will also be added once those consoles are available. Microsoft adds releases of its own games as soon as they are made available in shops.
Red Dead Redemption, open-world western from publisher of Grand Theft Auto, will become backwards compatible on Xbox One on Friday, July 8. The game was originally published on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2010. Backwards compatible is game industry jargon for allowing owners of video Game design for older console to play it on newer One. In this case, if you purchase and still own Red Dead Redemption for Xbox 360, you will be able to play it on Xbox One, no matter which version you originally bought, Undead Nightmare, or Game of Year Edition. Red Dead Redemption will also be available on the Xbox One Game Store. Backwards compatible update for Red Dead Redemption may be promotion for long rumor but unannounced sequel. Reveal was expected for this year's E3 Games conference. Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick described Red Dead as a permanent franchise in 2014.
