Backward compatibility is at the height of the controversy of the new generation of consoles and reason is simple, the next generation promises to be different from all others, with the inclusion of services, streaming and secret strategies. As for the Xbox Project Scarlett side, Microsoft's next-generation console, we will have more information in this regard.
Jason Ronald, Xbox team PM director, has leaked that there is interesting information about the backward compatibility of the Xbox Project Scarlett console. However, it is not yet time to talk about these details. We understand that Microsoft will only speak in the next six months, when E3 2020 will occur.
Above all, it will be interesting to see how well old games automatically work better on new hardware, such as Xbox One S and X. For example, all original Xbox games automatically play at 16x resolution, while Xbox One S reaches four times the resolution without developers having to do anything about it.
Great to see Spencer get recognition as a key part of the team of magicians in the Back Compat team. Great work happening across all of #TeamXbox. Exciting things in the works and looking forward to when we can share more.https://t.co/iywqoqKRD9

The question now is how to improve Xbox One games will run on Project Scarlett and, of course, how much better Xbox One games are on the new Xbox console. Remember that we get older, and the current games are the next to be backwards compatible next year.
