Games At an event earlier today, Microsoft unveiled the next Xbox - the third model, but confusingly named Xbox One. The big focus was TV, integrated Kinect, and all the other stuff we all expected to be forced down our throats. I think it took them 25 minutes to actually come to what should be the core of the story: gaming. Nothing groundbreaking in the gaming department, except for how Microsoft intends to handle the used games market and borrowing games from friends: pay up, buddy!

Ah, I don't know about those.

I do know Game Boy, game Boy Pocket -> Game Boy Color -> Game Boy Advance -> DS, DS Lite -> DSi XL -> 3DS.

And GameCube -> Wii -> Wii U.

Atari also did it with the Atari 7800 which could play Atari 2600 games.

Sega Genesis/Mega Drive had a peripheral to play Master System games on it.

Sega GameGear also had a peripheral to play Master System games on it, since it was basically a portable SMS with more colors.

While not *exactly* the same, the concept is similar.
