Why vote for games?
Xbox One Backwards Compatibility was announced during Microsoft?s E3 showing this June 2015. Sony has yet to introduce backwards compatibility, although it seems that they aren?t willing to push for it as gamespot reported that Sony Executive Shuhei Yoshida said?Microsoft implementing the feature must have been ?very challenging? adding ?I don?t think we will change our approach? The Playstation 4 doesn?t have backward compatibility.?
With thousands of Xbox 360 games available, Microsoft resorted to a voting system to determine which games people want to play. This survey will help Microsoft gauge the interest for the games so developers and publishers can make it available for play on Xbox One as Microsoft however can only support a number of games for backwards compatibility.
