For gamers who want to enjoy a massive library of games, it seems that Microsoft’s Xbox Series X could be the console to get. This is because the console will support backwards compatibility with games going back as far as the original Xbox as long as those games were already backwards compatible on the Xbox One X.
When it comes to backwards compatibility on consoles, it’s safe to say that Microsoft has done a much better job compared to Sony. For instance, the PS4 supports backwards compatibility with PS3 games, but that’s pretty much it, whereas the Xbox One supports the original Xbox and Xbox 360 games.

Sony’s PS4 console has been around for a couple of years now, but it seems that the PS3 console is still being produced. However we guess all good things must come to an end which is why Sony Japan has announced that production of the PS3 over in Japan will be coming to an end soon.

Yesterday Bungie unveiled the next expansion for Destiny called Rise of Iron.
