The Xbox team has already played over 100,000 hours to check the compatibility of old games on the Xbox Series X and by the end of the year the number of hours will rise to over 200,000 hours. The result is that thousands of games, from large blockbusters to small gems, will be immediately compatible with the new Microsoft console.
