A midst the announcements for Xbox One, Microsoft has revealed that their next generation console will not be backwards compatible with Xbox 360 games as well as Xbox Live Arcade games. The only thing that will be compatible with the Xbox One is your Gamer Score as you’ll be able to port over your achievements. It’s a shame Microsoft is ditching backwards compatibility as all the games you might’ve collected for use on Xbox 360 will now become useless in next gen.

On top of that, in order to play your pre owned games you will reportedly have to pay a fee to play the game. Putting even more monetary fees on top of paying for Xbox Live every year. So, in the end is Xbox One really worth it? Although I think the biggest thing you can get excited about is that you’ll at least be able to have 1,000 friends on your list.
