Platform Xbox Backwards Compatibility |OT3| All that power to play old games

Xbox Series X|S can run games from four generations of Xbox using the power of the new generation of Xbox to look and play much better with significantly reduced load times. All Xbox One games(except for those that require Kinect), Xbox 360 games and OG Xbox games that run on Xbox One can be played on the new Xbox Series X|S.

Auto HDR
Modern games often implement high dynamic range (HDR) to improve overall visual quality. HDR allows a game to render a much larger range of brightness values and colors. This gives an extra sense of richness and depth to the image when compared to a standard dynamic range (SDR) image. For example, the light from a flashlight looks much brighter and red flowers look much more vibrant.

However, thousands of Xbox games shipped before HDR was first introduced with Xbox One S, and even for some Xbox One games, developers simply didn’t have the development resources or time to implement HDR. Auto HDR automatically adds HDR enhancements to games which only shipped with SDR. Auto HDR enhances the visual quality of an SDR game without changing the original artistic intent of the game. Auto HDR is implemented by the system so developers don’t have to do any work to take advantage of this feature. Also, since Auto HDR is enabled by the console’s hardware, there is absolutely no performance cost to the CPU, GPU or memory and there is no additional latency added ensuring you receive the ultimate gaming experience.



Double Framerates
Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S bring next-gen performance to your favorite games. Higher, steadier framerates make games feel smoother, resulting in more immersive gameplay. Many improvements are the result of the custom designed processor that allows compatible games to play and leverage the increased CPU, GPU and memory from the new consoles. In addition however, the backward compatibility team has developed new methods for effectively doubling the framerate on select titles. While not applicable for many titles due to the game’s original physics or animations, these new techniques the team has developed can push game engines to render more quickly for a buttery smooth experience beyond what the original game might have delivered due to the capabilities of the hardware.

Enhanced visuals
On the Xbox One, we were able to provide a curated list of titles that were enhanced for the Xbox One X via the Heutchy method. This allowed titles from Xbox 360 that rendered at 720p and original Xbox games that ran at 360p to play at 4K on Xbox One X, well beyond the capabilities of their original platform. The Heutchy method continues to be used to bring a variety of titles to 1440p on Xbox Series S and 4K on Xbox Series X.

Improved texture filtering is also coming to backward compatible titles on both Xbox Series X and Series S. On Xbox One X, a portion of the catalog benefited from increased anisotropic filtering, improving image quality of games. On Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, 16x anisotropic filtering has been enabled for nearly all backward compatible titles so you can experience the very best visuals the games have to offer.
  • Xbox Series S will not get the Xbox One X enhancements or play from physical discs.
Sync Your Progress
Cloud saves sync between Xbox 360, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S for free at no additional cost letting you bring your progress from past generations. For those still enjoying Xbox 360, cloud saves will soon be free to all Xbox 360 users, making transferring your favorite games to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S even easier.

It has dynamic resolution and dynamic framerate scaling on One X, so the Series X caps it to 4k/60 pretty much all the time.


Absolutely incredible SP campaign and, now EA Play is included in Game Pass, there's no excuse for not experiencing it.

Curious to know when we will learn more about the games the backwards compatibility team have enhanced so far all we know is gears of war ultimate edition running at 4K and fallout 4 double frame rates and both of them aren’t available yet.

Fallout 4 was not specifically optimized but got changes that many games received like double frame rate. These were optimized on launch(it also includes Series S|X games so ignore them).
Halo MCC will come on November 17.

Could someone check Evil Within 2? The game doesn't work for me anymore on both X1X and XSX. I know it worked enhanced in the past on my X1X.

I find it funny halo ce and halo 2 on the original xbox are not back compatible. Obviously I know CEA is on 360 back compat and halo CEA and Halo 2 are on MCC on xbox one, but you would think they would support those who only have the original discs too.

it's the game's that made the OG xbox what it was.

Been playing GTAIV, really nice at 60fps. Only minor glitch is when there is lightning there is some craziness going on with the textures, maybe that was there originally, but I don't remember it.

Anyone tried Bully yet?

Some guys look like they are paid to put a :messenger_tears_of_joy: reaction on every OP about the console that was not their console of choice.

:messenger_neutral:

Great thread nonetheless, I am looking forward to when MS will resume adding new BC games to the list.

It seems to work just fine for me on XSX. Nice message to see on starting the game that there is a lock/unlock framerate option. It's super smooth and looks real good.
What about it is not working for you?

It starts, shows logos and then closes immediately after the warning screens. I think I tried everything, different account, internal or external drive, both disk and demo. Always the same. What's weird is that on X1X it also doesn't work and I'm sure it did in the past.

The irony is that I automatically and without blinking assume anyone who posts the lol reaction to things that aren't funny or intended to be funny are, well stupid. Just dumb, really.

So it humors me when they go out in public and display it almost with a sense of pride.

I’ve been blasting through Darksiders 3 before it leaves Gamepass on the 15th and I can say that the load times on the series X combined with quick resume has made the game much more enjoyable.

I almost gave up on it on my 1X, glad I decided to go back and give it a shot on the series X.

I will say one thing about the promotion of HDR. When they use SDR picture as a comparison, its always artificially dull by comparison and on some screens HDR looks worse than SDR because it blows out brightness (mine included).

It starts, shows logos and then closes immediately after the warning screens. I think I tried everything, different account, internal or external drive, both disk and demo. Always the same. What's weird is that on X1X it also doesn't work and I'm sure it did in the past.
So after wasting few more hours today I have found a workaround. Xbox has to be switched to offline mode and the game will start normally. Once the game is running, the console can be switched back to online mode. Works on both X1X and XSX.

Just got them 👌



I cannot buy this game from US store, is it available in any other store ?
Delisted.

Think you will have to find a disc copy of this game now if you want it.
I set Call of Juarez : Gunslinger as disc only. But MX vs ATV Reflex is still available.

He said he got those 2 already. 😉

I was referring to Pure with my response. It didn’t come across in the quote because he was quoting someone else.

The OG Xbox selection is pathetic. Especially since they hyped this up as the ultimate backwards compatibility machine. Hope they add to the library cause its sad af.

He mentions that all of these have Auto-HDR, but it doesn't show in the video. I suppose he only recorded in SDR.

I noticed that some original Xbox games (e.g. Jet Set Radio Future) that worked on the 360 via BC aren't on the list. I thought every Xbox game that has been released on the 360 and Xbox One BC programs would carry over to the Series X|S. Have we been misled by Microsoft?

No. They said every OG/360 game that works on Xbox One's BC will carry over to Series X/S. That is true.
JSRF only worked on the 360's version of BC, which was an entirely different system.

I see. I misunderstood then. I thought it included all the original Xbox games on the 360's BC program too.

Eager to see what else they bring out in 2021, I mainly use my base Xbox-1 for these titles, (outside of Halo) Driver San Francisco, Metal Gear 2, Burnout Revenge......still as good as they EVER were......question is will they ever get Top Spin, more so as there hasn't been a great tennis game since then...

Wish they would allow dynamic 4k on BFV and Battlefront 2. Pretty much the only games I’ve been playing on XsX.

Kinda surprised there aren’t as many patches/updates in general for the XsX. I don’t even see any announcements of future updates.

The "Optimized for Xbox Series S|X" does not include auto HDR, double framerate and other enhancements done by the Xbox BC team. The games have to be modified by the devs(like Gears 5) to take full advantage of XSS|X hardware and get the "Optimized for Xbox Series S|X" tag. Its like the Xbox One X enhanced games.
