if you're talking about the doubling framerate its true you can't in many cases. It depends on how the in-game physics works as doubling framerate

no I had people telling me that resolution bumps or double frame rates on any Xbox game was impossible without the developer changing something be cause the game wasn’t a emulation like the 360 games. I knew it was only gonna be a select games

lol @ those HDR-comparision-pictures. Reminds me of monitor-product-pages. You cannot show the HDR-difference with SDR-pictures. You just cant.

Auto-HDR still seems quite cool and overall Series X BC seems to be well thought out and integrated.

But for me personally not too relevant. I am looking forward to the new stuff. m

But but you can’t do that without changing the code from developers people have kept saying
https://news.xbox.com/ said:
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.
They keep it vague.

I swear 80% of news about next gen Xbox focus on it playing old games.

Really? Its more like they are telling us as much about the console as they can before launch.

Theyve shown us the hardware in detail.

Theyve shown us the UI in detail.

Theyve shown us its QuickResume feature.

Theyve shown us the baby Xbox.

Theyve shown us A game.

And now they are talking about backwards compatibility.

If they had exclusive nextgen titles to really show off, they would likely be talking about that.....but as we know the number exclusive launch titles this gen isnt looking very attractive right now.

Basically a month out Id hope both manufacterers would be showing us a lot more of the games.

What would E3 have looked like this year if all manufactures hit the floor......nothing but tech talks?

Honestly I want an XSX or XSS to play older titles and see how they've improved with all of this. So good!

OP is exactly the same as a thread on REEE. What's the point of cross posting MS' marketing materials in both forums? Or did a REEer copy-paste your thread?

It's interesting but it's a copy and paste of MS text, like you wrote 'On the Xbox One, we were able to provide a curated list of titles'.
A person can't be active on two forums?

You can't surpass a hard framerate cap if the code physically limits it to that degree.
Upscaling and modifying the output image is very possible however without alteration because all that requires is changing the system rasterization code by way of a wedge that scales incoming values by a fixed amount.

This is great because you know certain games are definitely not getting touched up by developers for a next gen upgrade

I know I plan to keep my XOX hooked up to the same tv as the XSX to see how much of an improvement there is playing games on the XSX. (I guess I should move my USB drive over though.)

Just to be clear here, as a big fan of this shit... Are we talking boosting unlocked frame rates or is there some crazy shit taking a locked 30fps and doubling it?
in the case of Fallout 4, its taking a locked 30fps game and making it 60fps! crazy

but they do say in the article that this wont be possible on most games since things like animations can be linked to framerates

so it will be rare cases

It’s a good convenience, “hey l loved that game, I can play that on my current console with some nice improvements “

I’m getting a bit tired of hearing about it though and that was even during XB1/1X. Despite all the shit said yesterday even my twitter feed couldn’t escape that garbage , I’m just glad Dirt 5 and Yakuza were shown regardless of the trolls,!hopefully Assassins Creed in the next few days.

Great news, shitty AF was one of the plague of this gen.
Yup.

That's the good thing about Xbox BC. This even goes for One X BC. Games often go beyond res or frame boosts/stabilizing. Better draw distance or AF improvements were part of the mix too.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

I wonder if games that cut frame rates in half on npc and objects in a distance are the games they can’t do this on?

By the time the new Xbox consoles launch this November, the team will have spent well over 500,000 hours of gameplay across the entire backward compatibility catalog

Incredible

Thank god we have the next gen speculation thread!

He has a point considering the thread title doesn't even match up with the reality:

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.

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. Fallout 4 framerate, shown below, is effectively doubled from 30fps to 60fps on Xbox Series S, delivering a new way to preserve and enjoy this legendary title.

Who does it benefit when a misleading thread title is created by the OP?

I just cant wait that they add more titles in BC. They said they will add more after next gen release, cait wait to see what else will be released.

I really hope some of their discussions with Sega allow them to make original XBox Sega titles Backwards Compatible, like JSRF, GunValkyrie, and the like.

Well, I can already play these old games, I'm not spending $500 for a console to play games I can already play.

It's nice but I still think this is lacking from a strategy point of view. Although I guess they had no choice after Craig Infinite, no Forza, and a quite frankly terrible list of XSX console exclusives.
You're right man. I suggest you not buy one. Like I said Xbox has no games not even one.

Is this the new 'Xbox has no games'?
I don't think the old 'Xbox has no games' went away. It's good to see them add to the list. No games new or old has a nice ring to it.
