Microsoft is doubling down on a known strength by confirming that the Xbox Series X will launch with "thousands" of games, leveraging its years-long backward-compatibility efforts, in comparison to Sony's mixed messaging on PlayStation 5's backwards-compatibility capabilities.
"With more than 100,000 hours of play testing already completed, thousands of games are already playable on Xbox Series X today, from the biggest blockbusters to cult classics and fan favorites," Xbox Series X Director of Program Management Jason Ronald wrote in a new blog on Xbox Wire. "Many of us in Team Xbox play on the Xbox Series X daily as our primary console and switching between generations is seamless. By the time we launch this holiday, the team will have spent well over 200,000 hours ensuring your game library is ready for you to jump in immediately."
