Good initiative... All discussions in one thread only..
Read earlier that it is finally settles with the backwards compatibility on xbox360! Not all games but some of the games will be supported (like Halo2 I figure)... Can't understand why they won't make all of them compatible...

Something that got me a little disturbed when watching some E3 footage today was the fact that some games shown up on the xbox360 did not had a stabile framerate! Like the Q4 video was real bad sometimes...

well, it may just be a conflict with the camera recording, but we shall see. With all the technology though, I don't think that there should be any problems. Long ago I said that I would not get the next xbox if MS does not get some better companies and more RPG's out. It looks like they want to compete in japan and have indeed, done so. So the x360 will be my next console, untill I get enough cash to but the PS3 (sry, the next Nintendo is out)

Also, this topic is probably going to be moved to the general gamers chat forum. AX and I are discussing if we should keep this a backup only forum, and all rumors and talk of the future systems out. I must say that I have to agree with him.

ANd Kosmiq, you were right. Frames were indeed sluggish and that was not the camera conflict. However, there is some good news to this. The console used was still in beta form and not the finished product. According to MS, it was only running between 25-40% maximum speed.

Phew... Lucky one there...
Would've been awful if it was to be the real performance...
And come to think of it the engine may not be finished either so well still some optimizations to do there too...
