Microsoft is seeking a Senior Software Engineer to work with the team that created the fabled Xbox One backward compatibility emulator, that allows us to play an expanding library of Xbox 360 games on our consoles. Interestingly, the same job listing states that the team will be working on bringing "Xbox One games to Project Scorpio," implying that Project Scorpio won't run Xbox One games natively.
