August 4, 2015

A score of new system improvements are coming to Xbox One. Microsoft announced that a new chatpad is coming for Xbox One controllers, and it will also work on Windows 10 for those who are PC gaming from the couch.

On the backwards compatibility front, Microsoft committed to their first party lineup from 360 to be backwards compatible. In addition, partners ranging from Disney to Bethesda to Capcom and more will bring their 360 games to Xbox One, and all future 360 Games with Gold games will be compatible with Xbox One when they are released.

For those who watch broadcast TV over their Xbox One with the help of an antenna, Microsoft will expand DVR functionality to include recording shows and scheduling future recordings, even allowing the recordings to be programmed in advance.
