Backwards compatibility on Xbox One

As a current PS4 owner I have to admit to being quite jealous about all the backwards compatible games that have been released on Xbox One.

I'm a big COD: World at War fan so to see it get a backwards compatibility release on the Xbox One and not on the PS4 is quite annoying. Not to mention the likes of Black Ops and Battlefield 2 & 3 to mention just a few more.

Has anyone played World at War on the Xbox One? Is it free from hackers ? Hope so because it became unplayable on the PS3 as a result of them.

* switching all the time

I've never had a problem switching between the controllers. This gen or last. However, some people swear by one or the other.

The deal looks good superb, mate. But only worth your while if you really, really want to play Gears, Halo or Forza. Im in the same boat and think I have come to the conclusion im just gonna wait for the Scorpio, currently have too much to play atm, with a huge back log, adding another console in which I only have a passing interest with the exclusives wont really help my cause. And to be fair I would wait until March and buy a stupidly cheap WiiU, feel that has a better back catalogue of exclusives.

To me the Xbox one thumbsticks are not as sensitive as the PS pads therefore not so good for aiming in FPS shooters I do feel however the Xbox one pad is far more comfortable for playing longer stints on

As someone who's owned both Xbox and PlayStations I'm definitely more comfortable with PS controllers, but then again I've had PlayStations since PS1.

Maybe it's just me but I find the Xbox controller excessively bulky. I suppose that it's all about what you're more used to.

Just my opinion, I also think the triggers on the ps4 pad are a good bit better than xbone pads...battery life on the xbone is far better tho. Completely down to personal choice tho. Sony improved the comfort a good bit by making the pad a little better however.

Little bit bigger*

delboy yeah the PS4 controller is quite a lot bigger than the PS3 controller when you compare them side by side, I was quite surprised by how much when I did it.

I suppose that would make switching between both new gen consoles that bit easier.

In terms of comfort I just prefer where the left analogue stick is on the PS4 controller as it seems to be in a more natural position.
