You Can Plug Your Xbox 360 Into Your Xbox One, Confirms Major Nelson

You Can Plug Your Xbox 360 Into Your Xbox One, Confirms Major Nelson

No reasons were given as to why you’d want to do that, however.

Xbox Live director of programming Larry Hryb has confirmed to Reddit Games that gamers will be able to plug their Xbox 360 consoles into Xbox One using the new HDMI-in port on the console.

“Absolutely; you can certainly plug an Xbox 360 in the back – that was one of my first questions when I heard about the [HDMI-in] feature,” he told Reddit Games interviewer at E3.

He stopped short of explaining why you’d want to do that, however the point of the question was that  you might want to use the Xbox One UI, or perhaps make use of its multi-tasking while playing.

Major Nelson gave the same answer to a question of the same concerning Windows 8 PC in via HDMI-in port. “The answer is yes,” he said.

Adding:

It’s the only console right now that has HDMI-in, and it’s going to absolutely allow you to plug in your, for instance, your cable, your set-top box.
