Q: Will Xbox One be backward compatible with my existing games?

A: Xbox One hardware is not compatible with Xbox 360 games. We designed Xbox One to play an entirely new generation of games—games that are architected to take full advantage of state-of-the-art processors and the infinite power of the cloud. We care very much about the investment you have made in Xbox 360 and will continue to support it with a pipeline of new games and new apps well into the future.

Off Xbox's site itself. Just saying.

Xbox One -> x86 ASM Architechture.
Xbox 360 -> PPC Architechture.

They will not support one another, it's simply too big of a pain in the ***.

I'm not disputing that it won't run 360 games, but the original xbox was x86, and the 360 was ppc, and the 360 was backwards compatible. So the architecture can't be the only reason.

It used emulation. They decided to not use it this gen.

If they *wanted* to, they could have. In the end though, they chose not to.

Money is the main reason. They want you to buy the new console.

Just switch your pre-order to the Xbox One or whatever system you want.
