Microsoft exploring Xbox 360 emulation for the Xbox One
Microsoft has confirmed that they are still exploring ways to make 360 games playable on the Xbox One.
Speaking at this year's Build Conference, development lead Frank Savage revealed that they are still working on plans for a 360 emulator for the Xbox One but it is proving a challenge.
“There are [still plans for an emulator] but we’re not done thinking them through yet, unfortunately,” Savage stated. “It turns out to be hard to emulate the PowerPC stuff on the x86 stuff. So there’s nothing to announce, but I would love to see it myself.”
Albert Penello had previously discussed backward compatibility and suggested that it could be provided using the Microsoft Azure technology that powers the Xbox One's cloud processing.
