No, I was asking something that it seems no one can really answer being 100% sure. Can I run my fucking original physical CD XBOX Conker from 2005, or will I have to pay an additionnal digital version on my series X if only they make it available.

If the game is supported you will be able to use your disc. What games will be supported remains to be seen. But as Conker is already supported on XBO the chances of it being supported on XBX seem very high.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

Anyway...this console is doomed. Even for writing my previous comment it was annoying to be sure to avoid confusion.

Saying that the console is doomed before we even know what is going into it, when it will launch specifically, and what it will cost is why you receive those kinds of downvotes in articles. Sure, you’re entitled to your opinion, but people are also entitled to disagree and that is why the Downvote System exists in the first place.



                                                                                                             

Your priority should lie with improving your own posts rather than changing the system. You have a habit of jumping the gun with your assumptions and coming to questionable/ridiculous conclusions.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

The name of the console have 0 bearing on you knowing if you'll be able to play from the disc. And even if you can't you won't have to pay the digital version, the way Xbox BC works you get a free digital title that you need the disc inside to work.

The funniest part is that with people having subs double, triple and even quadruple the weight of a vote just one golden sub dislike can basically hide any post away, lol.
This thing is a complete mess.

... you have got to be kidding me.  There is no way that can be true.

I think VGC should double down and add dislikes to forum posts as well.

I don't even know what to say.  That's unbelievable.  The whole voting thing is a sham and I never realized. 

Sounds like something EA would do.

Agreed... Well, not about the EA comment. 

That's a bit much. 

4x is ridiculous. No one's opinion should be worth more because they pay for it.

Having said that though, 2x is ok. I mean... Incentives. They're needed. This site is a business and I'm quite grateful for the service and information I have access to for free. A 2x is acceptable despite the rest my comment.

I answered that question on your article comment with a reply on your comment already. Yes, if an OG Xbox or 360 game is on the BC list, you can pop the disc in and the system will install a digital copy of the game, free of charge, you just need to have the disc in whenever you want to play it. The list of Xbox Backwards compatibility games can be found here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_backward_compatible_games_for_Xbox_One

Conker is indeed on the list. All games on this list are expected to work on Series X out of the box, as well as every single Xbox One game, because the BC team took a break from creating new OG Xbox and 360 emulation profiles to work on getting 100% XB1 BC on Scarlett (Series X) out of the box. After Series X is out, there is a good chance that the BC team will get back to work adding more OG Xbox and 360 games to the list.
