Head of Xbox Phil Spencer confirmed the next generation Xbox, Project Scarlett, will be backwards compatible with all Xbox consoles and old accessories.
"Like we said on stage, we’re going to bring four generations of content to Scarlett, including all the games on the Xbox One, we have the 360 and the original Xbox games, and not only do we want those to run, we want them to run and play better than you’ve ever seen them on Scarlett," said Spencer.
"All your accessories are compatible moving forward as well. If you go and buy an Elite Wireless Controller or Series Two Controller that will be forward compatible on the Scarlett."
