A little while back we reported on the â€˜endâ€™ of Backwards Compatibility. Peetah Moore said to Kikizo that â€˜Nobody is concerned anymore about backwards compatibilityâ€™. According to an interview Peter Moore had with Major Nelson in his latest Podcast this was taken out of context. The original statement was made when Peetah was asked about E3 2005 when MS was really vague about how BC was going to work out. Now a year later everyone knows how it turned out and nobody is concerned anymore. According to Moore they are continuing to get as close as they can to their stated target of getting every Xbox game backwards compatible on the Xbox 360.
He also says that MS really does care about BC and that the next update is going to include ‘20 or more’ titles including Lego Star Wars and Doom III.
Listen to Major Nelson’s latest Podcast here, the bit on BC is around 30:20. He also says some things about Wii60 and how he felt E3 went.
