Seeing what Sony has done with the acquisition of Gaikai, Microsoft is considering the possibility of emulating Xbox 360 on the Xbox One. According to a report on Kotaku, Xbox partner development lead Frank Savage said that Microsoft does have some plans on emulation, but they are still "thinking things through."
"There are [plans]," he said. "But we're not done thinking them through yet, unfortunately."
"It turns out to be hard to emulate the PowerPC stuff on the X86 stuff. So there's nothing to announce, but I would love to see it myself."
Sony used the acquisition of the Gaikai game streaming service to create PlayStation Now to provide emulation of Sony's older games.
It's certainly a change in tone for Microsoft, who said back in November that a similar service of Microsoft platforms was unlikely...
