Xbox One Pre­view Up­date Lets You Buy Back­ward­sCom­pat­i­ble Xbox 360 Games It’s with­out a doubt that the big­gest, most ex­cit­ing fea­ture of the Xbox One Pre­view up­date is the abil­ity to browse and pur­chase back­wards-com­pat­i­ble Xbox 360 games.

HWM (Malaysia) - - GAX - NEWSWIRE - Guardians Halo 5:

Not one to lose out to the likes of Sony, Mi­crosoft has also un­veiled up­dates for the Xbox One con­sole. Sadly, the up­date, which con­sists of sev­eral highly re­quested fea­tures, is cur­rently only avail­able to Xbox One Pre­view par­tic­i­pants. On the bright side, you can ex­pect them to be rolled out to all con­soles in the com­ing weeks. It’s with­out a doubt that the big­gest, most ex­cit­ing fea­ture of the Xbox One Pre­view up­date is the abil­ity to browse and pur­chase back­wards-com­pat­i­ble Xbox 360 games. A fea­ture that should have been in­cluded with last Novem­ber’s ‘New Xbox One Ex­pe­ri­ence’ up­date, it’s the cat­a­lyst that en­abled the Xbox One to run se­lected Xbox 360 ti­tles.

Other new ad­di­tions in­clude the abil­ity to par­tic­i­pate in 16-per­son Party Chats, which, up un­til now, was only lim­ited to 12 peo­ple. The Twitch app for Xbox One has like­wise been given an up­date as well – you can now in­clude the con­ver­sa­tions of your Party Chats into your broad­cast. Nat­u­rally, party mem­bers are able to choose whether or not to have their an­gelic (or de­monic) voices trans­mit­ted out for all of Twitch to hear. But of course, it is the party lead­ers who will have the fi­nal say, as they have the au­thor­ity to mute a party mem­ber’s au­dio even if they have de­cided to join the fray.

Then there’s the re­freshed Rep­u­ta­tion sys­tem, which has been given a mi­nor vis­ual over­haul to en­sure that you’re dis­tinctly aware of the fact that your team­mate in

has a ‘Needs Work’ or an ‘Avoid Me’ rep­u­ta­tion level – who you should prob­a­bly avoid at all costs if you want to ac­tu­ally en­joy the game.
