Our man on the ground, Mr. Lee Bradley has been asking the burning questions at Microsoft's Xbox One reveal event in the UK.
With the issue of backwards compatibility and always-online still up in the air, we were straight in there to ask Microsoft just what the score is on that front.
Microsoft's Xbox UK Marketing Director, Harvey Eagle told X360A that Xbox One won't be backwards compatible with old Xbox and Xbox 360 games or Xbox Live Arcade titles. That's the bad news.
The good news is that Xbox One won't be always online either and so won't block used games. Every cloud, eh? Now we just need to find out if your achievements will carry over... We're assuming they will. They frickin' better!
