    Very curious how they're actually doing this, since they said before it wasn't possible due to technical limitations.

    Hopefully Sony follows suit and I can buy a PS4 guilt-free and stock up on PS3 games :D

    I think this is awesome. Easily my favourite announcement up until anything in Sony's conference. :P

    It's great that they've listened to fans who wanted to completely move on from the 360. I love that it's free, I love that devs don't have to put a lot of work into it, I love that it seems to work with all the Xbone features, and it just seems like a really solid program. Kudos, Microsoft.

    I was honestly shocked when I heard they announced this; 360 compatibility was something I never thought they would (or could, to be honest) do. Now with that said, it's DEFINITELY a pleasant surprise.

    Sad to see the list of games start out so small for the preview program, but I'm at least glad it'll go to over 100 in a few months. Can't way to be able to finally play through Reach again!

    The coolest part of this is that they'll make use of Xbox One features like screenshots. That is nice
