Just nine days before The Game Awards, Microsoft's new Xbox chief, Sarah Bond, has decided to stir up some intrigue by dropping a hint related to the Xbox 360. She posted the logo of Xbox 360 on platform X without any explanation, sparking widespread speculation among her followers.
Given Microsoft's recent acquisition of Activision Blizzard, it is plausible that the tease could be linked to plans for reopening the backward compatibility program with classic Activision titles joining the lineup. This may include popular games like Call of Duty as well as much-loved gems such as High Moon Studios' Transformers games older versions of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater and Guitar Hero, among others. Rumors have also surfaced suggesting potential remasters of Xbox 360 classics Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - could this be what Bond is hinting at?
In a more imaginative vein, there are theories that Xbox Series X (anticipated for a mid-generation refresh next year) might adopt an aesthetic similar to that of the Xbox 360 or that a mini-version of the console preloaded with select games might be in the pipeline.
