QFT... Absolutely correct, good sir. Zune failed years ago and was supported till this year. Phil is also looking into bringing OG Xbox games over to BC once 360 BC gets sorted out. M$ really is good at supporting things they failed at. 😉

Oh, come on, if you call what Microsoft did with the Zune actually "supporting it" then you could also say Sony would be supporting the Vita. They let it die a slow and painful death, there weren't any updates since 2011 which would be worth mentioning. With Windows 8 they also abandoned the software and replaced it with Xbox music. A zune player is pretty useless since then, except when you already have some music on it and want to hear it again and again and again and again and again... or something.

As for BC: That's support for the Xbox One, not for the original Xbox. It's not like I can use my old games with that service, can I? No, it's just a bunch of 360 games, who knows if and when there will bei Original Xbox Games. On top of that, my point still stands that they let their console die just three years after release in europe! I mean, come on, three years! That's pretty damn short for a console, especially considering it did cost friggin 479 € at release. 

And those are only two things, there's also Mira, Kin, Windows ME, Windows XP 64 Bit (the support was really bad for that one) and other things. Microsoft isn't throwing money away for products that don't sell. No one in their right mind would do that. Not even the oh so friendly folks at Nintendo.

Its going to be big though.... like every other (console) game, can be played in VR big.

Just gotta wait for everyone to have headsets(guessing maybe 10-15 years down the line here).

I do not think so, I expect it to go the way of 3D tvs


3d tv was bigger than vr will ever be.

My PC is Backwards Compatible with 360 and Forward Compatible with Xbox One, what do I win?

Compared to how my prized possession, Clie, back in the day. Yes, that is brilliant support 😌. I did so much research in finding the perfect pocket computer. Then one week later, they announce that they will stop supporting Clie in one month. I prayed to the Gods, why did they let this happen to such a wonderful device. So much better than Palm's crap. So I went and got Windows Mobile eventually to pay back Palm for having a hand in Clie's demise. I still loved my Sony product, despite its creators throwing it to the curb like it was a bastard child. Made many perv spy videos with random hotties.

3 years vs 1 month... M$ takes it! 😆

BTW , go on your 360 and accept my friend request from 6 months ago. Its still pending. 😒

Xbone... the new "N" word   Apparently I troll MS now | Evidence | Evidence

Oh, sorry, but I don't know where I put the 360! I think it's somewhere in the basement. =D

I'll get an Xbox One sometime later this year anyway, I'll just accept when that happens, sometime in december I believe.

That is true, but VR is not much better and will fail due to high cost of ownership



Personally, while I do like the various ways VR can further increase a gaming experience, I do not see it as a viable permanent solution to the traditional style of gaming. Keyboard/mouse and controller most likely is going to be the mainstay for the foreseeable future.

Bad comparison. For one, VR is way better than 3d tv as an experience and as a product. Two, 3D tv was also crazy expensive to get into. You needed a special TV, a special blu ray player, special glasses, and special movies.

 

That, and the support for 3d tv was just never there.

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.
