Xbox One adds Xbox 360 backwards compatibility

how do you know what the FPS rate is?
The game does regularly run at less than 30fps on X360, so it wouldn't be much of a stretch to assume it runs around there on X1, which, by all accounts, seems pretty close to the same performance, if not a bit worse, currently. I hope they chose ME1 in the initial batch of titles because it was one of the first UE3 titles on X360 and any tweaks made to the emulator/interpreter benefit all subsequent UE3 titles as they'll only become more demanding while performing better in terms of framerate.
 
installed mass effect 1
20 fps

I'm all the way through the side quests and in the main story I'm just starting Ilos. It really only gets bad during intense action, just like it did on 360. It's not consistently 20 fps. But it does get really choppy when there's a lot going on.

I believe the difference with Mass Effect is that it runs with v-sync on XBO. So you don't get tearing, but when the frame-rate dips below 30 it goes straight down to 20. Would be great if they could figure some way of keeping v-sync and frame-rates up, but I doubt it.

Been playing with a brand new character. Level 32 now. I'm in love all over again. I really hope they add me2 and me3 to the BC program. I didn't realize how badly I've missed this series. :3

And yeah it gets really choppy when there's a lot of effects on the screen... But that's exactly how it was on the 360.
 
Wonder will the 360 version of minecraft be ported over even though they have a XBONE version
It will, it's first party. They're not gonna start backpedaling that. Minecraft is probably the only game MS don't really want to enable it for due to it being a money making machine but I think they will for the greater good.

Can you imagine the shitstorm if they came out and said "Yeah by first party we meant first party games that don't make us money any more"? If MS starts blocking games out then that's not exactly setting a good precedent for other publishers to follow. They probably won't want to do it, but kind of have to do it if they want others to follow .

Isn't there already a $5 upgrade for minecraft?
I'd pay the full $15 for the huge world size alone on the Xbox one.
