Spencer’s blog post also touched on several quality-of-life improvements to boost immersion. The console will include SSD storage to support larger worlds and speed up loading times.

Finally, the console, which is set to launch later this year, will be backwards compatible with the Xbox 360 and original Xbox, allowing users to play four generations of games via the console. The next-generation console also includes special technology which allows users to purchase one game and play it on any Xbox console.
