Quote:My expectations were pretty high for Microsoft both at its console reveal and at this year's E3. So I was rather surprised when Microsoft rather a few mistakes during these key presentations. Equally, I was surprised that they corrected them as they have. After learning their lesson at E3, Microsoft just may be able to show gamers that they are listening, and they will do whatever it takes to make the customer happy.

The backwards compatibility, AFAIK, is similar to the PS3's issue where the architecture is too different.

They could do it like the 360, but it'd only work with a subset of games and there'd probably be glitches and whatnot.

Backwards compatibility has always been a bit of a non-issue for me. At the end of the day, if you want to play previous generation games, play them on a previous generation console. If you don't already own it, after the next gen comes out, previous gen consoles drop like a stone in price. Or look at one of the multitude of traded-in systems.

The price, however - well that's still my biggest "concern" for the Xbone. People really don't want Kinect, so making them pay over the odds extra (if that even is how they justify the difference) is just stupid. Reversing unpopular policies is one thing, but prices tend to be all but set in stone.
