Backwards compatibility with original Xbox games on track for end of 2017

This candid admission was pretty clear to anyone watching from the sidelines, but it does raise a few questions regarding the Xbox One's 2017 - if Microsoft were aware that the Xbox One X wasn't going to be a killer in terms of sales, then why has the Xbox One been left out in the cold for the majority of the year? After all, if a consumer without an Xbox One decides to finally buy one this holiday season, the Xbox One S is a much better deal.

Bad news about cross-play, but good news about backwards compatibility!

Microsoft brings its Edge browser to Android OS
Starting today, the Android version of the Microsoft Edge browser is available without restrictions from the Google Play Store . Earlier this week, Microsoft all but admitted it had stopped working on new features and hardware for Windows 10 Mobile .

With all of this in mind, it's not especially surprising to Microsoft hedging its bets when it comes to expectations for the 4K console.

Phil Spencer has admitted that the Xbox One X is "not for everybody" via an interview with Gamespot, saying that the console is meant to give players more freedom in choosing how to play their games. The bundles include a Xbox One S Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle, a "Rocket League" Blast-Off Bundle, a Starter Bundle and last but not least, the Xbox One S Ultimate Halo Bundle. It's the more affordable console. "It will be the console that sells". It's looking like you'll be able to experience all the classics in the very near future.

Isaiah Thomas Still Sour About Cavs Trade, Upset With Celtics' Danny Ainge
Thomas' words came out in a Sports Illustrated story that dropped on Wednesday. I know there is a lot of feelings that go on when these type of things happen.

"Whether you're on a 1080p TV or a 4K TV, you're going to have a great experience". "But it's not for everybody". Launching in the coming weeks, the United Kingdom will receive an Xbox One S Rocket League Blast-Off Bundle, an Xbox One S Starter Bundle and - for those that didn't manage to get their hands on the limited edition Minecraft version of the console, an Xbox One S Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle.

As you surely know, being an avid Gamereactor reader and all, the Xbox One is capable of playing a whole lot of Xbox 360 games thanks to the backwards compatibility, and the original Xbox is about to be added as well. "So we're giving gamers a choice". It's hard to do that with gamers. It's certainly not a technical issue as Fortnite accidentally allowed cross-play between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users recently before turning the ability off. Rocket League developer Psyonix is merely waiting on the go-ahead from both companies to enable cross-play.
