Halo Products

The following is a list of Halo products available on the Xbox One.



Backwards Compatible



  • The Xbox One is backwards compatible with some Xbox 360 games.[7]
  • Microsoft originally planned for the Xbox One to be an "always-online" console, in which the console could only go offline for 24 hours before having to connect to the Internet. The company has since backtracked on this policy, and now the Xbox One will only be required to connect to the Internet once during the initial set-up of the console.[8]
  • At launch, the Xbox One was supposed to be available in 21 countries, but was only made available in 13 due to lack of language support.[citation needed]
  • On August 12, 2013, Microsoft announced that the Kinect system will be optional and the Xbox One will be able to function without it.[9] Microsoft announced in late January 2014 that they would release an update that would increase the Xbox One's GPU power by reducing the power reserved for the Kinect.[citation needed]
  • On May 13, 2014, Microsoft announced that there will be an Xbox One without a Kinect for $399. Additionally, the Games for Gold program will be available on the Xbox One.[10]
