Microsoft Debunks 'Xbox 2' Backward Compatibility Rumors

by Rainier on June 22, 2004 @ 11:30 a.m. PDT

Yesterday a rumor started going around that the Xbox 2 would not be backwards compatible, but today TeamXbox got an official statement from Microsoft : “Recent stories in the press about future Xbox products are nothing more than pulp fiction. Microsoft hasn’t made any announcements regarding the next generation, so it’s far too early to speculate about specifics, including backward compatibility. In fact, this media conjecture is irresponsible. The credibility of any publication willing to compromise fact in favor of a catchy headline must be questioned. Xbox fans are smart enough to distinguish truth from sensational reporting.”
