NicheCast Episode 86 – Why is Only Microsoft Pushing Backwards Compatibility?

The NicheCast is Niche Gamer’s weekly podcast where we talk up the latest gaming news and events, as well as unique games, niche games, weird games, whatever you want to call them—we love them and we know you love them as well. We only cover these games on our regular feed, and we only cover them on our podcast, too.

Niche News of the Week

Topic of the Week

This week, we talk backwards compatibility in the gaming industry. Have Sony and Nintendo abandoned their classic games? Why is backwards compatibility not really a thing anymore, and why is Microsoft of all gaming companies the only one that seems to be pushing it? Has Microsoft done enough for backwards compatibility support, or can they do more? How important is backwards compatibility, and game preservation overall? We talk up all these points and more!
