    So, if you play Mass Effect on the 360, is there any way to transport your 360 progress up with it? To finally finish off the game, you need to complete it multiple times with all the companions, so will New Game Plus be available? Also, (not sure if it has been asked) is the DLC available for it? And will achievement progress carry up? I'm pretty sure if you get kills on one playthrough, on the next it will remember that number and start counting from there toward the achievement.

    You can use cloud saves to continue progress on the One.

    DLC currently does not work, pending fix from MS.

    Achievements remain the same, progress and all.

    If anybody needs a invite or needs clearing up I can explain. Just send me a message if you need something to be cleared up or send me a friend request if you need to be invited. I will not invite you if you send me a message saying invite. I will only invite you if you send me a friend request.

    I never used Cloud on the 360, so will I need to go back to the 360 to upload the saved data to cloud in order for it to upload? Also, have they said about fixing achievements that require peripherals like the Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise achievement that requires you to use the Vision camera (which clearly wouldn't be possible to get on the One, and I don't own a Kinect so I wouldn't be able to get it either way).

    There's nothing to "fix", and no there won't be anything done about it. Any achievement that requires Kinect or USB peripherals will have to be done on the 360, and that won't be changed.

I bet the devs are about the only people out there cursing this announcement. None of those "Definitive Editions" of Xbox 360 games we have seen ported to the Xbox One will sell as well now, except to those of us who like to stack the achievements.Not too sure about that. Seems like the Ultimate Edition will have a bunch of new campaign additions to make it so that people want to join in. Plus all the shiny new graphics and stuff? Totally in. It's also the sort of thing that someone who didn't pick up the original game won't have an issue with. So anyone who is jumping on this generation will probably just buy the One version instead of the 360. I'd still be pissy if I was a publisher though.

    Good to see MS do something positive for the consumer like this though. Even if it's only a small boon it's still pretty big from a "for the fans" angle.
    It's not going to kill sales, but it will harm them. There are those that can't affored $60 for GoW:UE that can now go out and buy GoW for $5 instead. I will be interested to see if they add more to the campaign than just the PC missions.

    Microsoft didn't just do this for the consumer. The Xbox One will go from a console with 100+ $60 games to 1000+ $5 games in a short space of time. This impressive feature is going to sell more Xbox Ones. It will even swing some people trying to decide between a XB1 and a PS4, as a huge back catalogue of cheap games is a big bonus. There will never be backward compatibily on the PS4, as unlike PowerPC (Xbox 360) emulation on x86 (Mac OS X 10.4 has been there and done that years ago), Cell (PS3) emulation would not be fast enough.

    Last time i looked,the cloud storage on the 360 was hardly anything so i'm not sure if you can move the bigger saves over.

I have most of my saves there and am currently moving more, and I still have 470-480MB left.

I will be interested to see if they add more to the campaign than just the PC missions.Well two things about that: GoW:UE has been announced to be $39.99 by Rod Fergusson. So it's already somewhat bargain priced. Secondly the PC only added one campaign mission, this is supposed to have five. John DiMaggio, Marcus' voice actor, has also said on Twitter that he got to record new stuff. So clearly the four new campaigns are going to be new stuff.

    Microsoft didn't just do this for the consumer.Of course they didn't. And none of the changes Sony made at the previous E3 to bury Xbox One weren't made with fans in mind, they were made to swing public opinion in their direction. But in the end these things benefit the consumer and that's all I care about. This is a great slap back at Sony for that E3 since Sony has all but stated the only way you'll be playing older games on your consoles is if you buy them again digitally. Competition is indeed good for the consumer.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

    I'd like to add that the Xbox 360 arcade game "N+" seems to be a title available on the One. I just got the update that allows backward compatibility, and it appears in my ready to install list. Will there be a forum that constantly updates and adds any new games that work on the One? If they missed out on mentioning N+, there may be a few others, and I could start looking through my old 360 games and testing them out to see if they work, and one big list can be compiled.
