    Per xbox twitter:
    Your Xbox Live Gold membership will work for both your Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Accessories are different.

    I can understand the no backward compatibility, its a new generation system complete with a new OS and hardware. It would be like trying to play a MAC game on a PC. Hell my PS3 doesn't play PS2 games. My SNES doesn't play NES games... its pretty much standard for next gen to not play previous gen.

    Seems to be conflicting information then:

    Speaking to us at the big event in Redmond today, Microsoft corporate vice president Phil Harrison clarified a couple of details about the system's used game policy and explained that there will be a solution for people who want to trade games with their friends.
    Here's how the system works: when you buy an Xbox One game, you'll get a unique code that you enter when you install that game. You'll have to connect to the Internet in order to authorize that code, and the code can only be used once. Once you use it, that game will then be linked to your Xbox Live account. "It sits on your harddrive and you have permission to play that game as long as you’d like," Harrison said.
    But what if you want to bring a game disc to a friend's house and play there? You'll have to pay a fee—and not just some sort of activation fee, but the actual price of that game—in order to use a game's code on a friend's account. Think of it like a new game, Harrison said.

    "The bits that are on that disc, you can give it to your friend and they can install it on an Xbox One," he said. "They would then have to purchase the right to play that game through Xbox Live."

    "They would be paying the same price we paid, or less?" we asked.

    "Let’s assume it’s a new game, so the answer is yes, it will be the same price," Harrison said.
    So, who to believe? Random tweet or Microsoft corporate vice president Phil Harrison?

    The twitter is the official xbox support twitter, so its not random. But nothing has been "official" about any of this yet. We are all jumping to conclusions. Speaking of which, has Sony come out and said anything on used games? They have not.
    When it all comes down to it, I have a hard time believing either the PS4 or ONE will make players pay fees for used games. I mean look at the craziness of no official word has caused. If one or both of them do charge for used/borrowed games, they can close down shop right now the consumer will not go for that.

    I am saving my judgment for both systems until all the cards on the table and I will buy the one I think I will enjoy more.

    Every complaint toward Xbox is still TBA on PS4:

    So we could all be royally screwed if those TBA's and Maybe's become YES.

    On the bright side, we now will have plenty of time to play catch-up on all those 360/PS3 games we have wanted to play but havent.

    I was not impressed at all with this reveal. Nothing made me say "yeah, I need to have one of those". I just love how they dedicated 15 minutes to COD: Ghosts, a non-exclusive title. Terrible.

    Default Xbox One

    So was your Super Nintendo backwards compatible? How about that N64?

    Of course it won't be backwards compatible. Why does it need to be? If you have the 360 and games keep them. No reason you have to unhook one system to play another.

    It's a great time for gamers, not fanboys and trolls talking about fees and nonsense. I'm really digging the features on the Xbox One and the PS4. The future is finally starting to arrive and it's pretty cool to watch.

    As for the games, both companies get a zero for games presentation. And considering launch is just months away supposedly, that is scary. Hopefully E3 has more.
