Report: Microsoft ‘Thinking About’ Xbox 360 Game Emulation on Xbox One

Seeing what Sony has done with the acquisition of Gaikai, Microsoft is considering the possibility of emulating Xbox 360 on the Xbox One. According to a report on Kotaku, Xbox partner development lead Frank Savage said that Microsoft does have some plans on emulation, but they are still "thinking things through."

"There are [plans]," he said. "But we're not done thinking them through yet, unfortunately."

"It turns out to be hard to emulate the PowerPC stuff on the X86 stuff. So there's nothing to announce, but I would love to see it myself."

Sony used the acquisition of the Gaikai game streaming service to create PlayStation Now to provide emulation of Sony's older games.

It's certainly a change in tone for Microsoft, who said back in November that a similar service of Microsoft platforms was unlikely…
