New games for a new system! i dont mind upgrading every 3 years and cant belive people still wanna play the old xbox 360 games.

Agreed, most xbox 360 games are lame.

I got an Xbox One to play N64 games.

Why would you wish for a feature to be taken away just because it doesn't appeal to you?

You have nothing to lose, whilst many others have something to gain.

Because many people don't have ADHD like attention spans and the simple fact that 360 has plenty of great games? If a game is good, a game is good. Age means nothing.

Obviously a lot of people wouldn't agree. For instance, some people may have spent $100's or maybe thousands of dollars of DLC on games they cannot play anymore like guitar hero and rock band. Can't say much though, I sold my Xbox 360 and all of my games except BO1 a few months ago. I just have custom set lists on my GH3PC lol

Why would you wish for a feature to be taken away just because it doesn't appeal to you?

You have nothing to lose, whilst many others have something to gain.

Some things can be done better if you're only shooting for a single platform.
For example, Just Cause 3 would need... almost everything cut from the game in order to get something similar running on the Xbox 360. It seems like almost every other object has Havok physics.
MGS 5 on the other hand seems to have done just fine by parsing the geometry and halving the framerate.
There's another interesting point, if compatibility with old hardware means I get better framerates on new games, I'm going to have to count that as a positive thing.

Really it should be entirely up to the developers which hardware they support, and I have a feeling that's going to be the case as soon as something better than Scorpio comes out, there just isn't much incentive not to support Xbox One right now since both Xbone and Scorpio still share the same CPU.

The main point of all this is that in the long term it's going to be much easier to publish games across the entire Xbox ecosystem, if that's what the developers want, and if this generation is anything to go by lots of developers (/publishers) do want to release on multiple hardware generations.
If anyone is concerned about games being watered down by old hardware then just look around you, we've already had more cross generation games in this cycle than ever before, and it's not just Microsoft, the PS4 basically got its first big technology showcase exclusive three months ago.

I feel sorry for you, never to replay some of the greatest and revolutionary games: Max Payne, DOOM, Quake, Half Life, Homeworld, Syndicate Wars, Privateer, Wing Commander, Sim City, Dune, C&C, etc. I am sure you've either not played these games or haven't even heard of them apart from their modern remakes, and I haven't even mentioned the classics that started gaming.

Scorpio and Neo always seemed to be aimed at VR. They didn't want to have to wait until 2020 to launch a VR capable console.

Please tell me this is a joke. Most of the games I play are at least five years old. I still play Master of Orion 2. That came out in 1996, twenty years ago.

I love PC.

Cheers! I replay Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II at least once or twice a year. Fallout and Fallout 2 as well. The Max Payne series always has a place on my gaming drive, as does OG Splinter Cell. We've got C&C matches in my Teamspeak now and again, and just recently completed a four-player coop in Icewind Dale. 

 

New games can be great, but oldies are goodies.

Exactly! In fact it was playing Pillars of Eternity that made me want to go back and replay Baldur's Gate. The new and the old play into each other sometimes and you don't always fully appreciate the one without the other.
