The older games will perform better on the Xbox Series X in terms of picture quality and frame rate
Recently, Microsoft revealed that the Xbox Series X uses their Xbox backward-compatible technology to obtain better visual effects when running old games, and the technology can also allow old games to be used without requiring developers to modify the content of the game. The running frame rate is increased, which is equivalent to a special benefit for old game players.
The Xbox team said: “In partnership with the Xbox Advanced Technology Group, Xbox Series X delivers a new, innovative HDR reconstruction technique which enables the platform to automatically add HDR support to games. As this technique is handled by the platform itself, it allows us to enable HDR with zero impact to the game’s performance and we can also apply it to Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles developed almost 20 years ago, well before the existence of HDR.”
“The compatibility team has invented brand new techniques that enable even more titles to run at higher resolutions and image quality while still respecting the artistic intent and vision of the original creators,” says Ronald. “We are also creating whole new classes of innovations including the ability to double the frame rate of a select set of titles from 30fps to 60fps or 60fps to 120fps.”
Microsoft’s move can bring many old games on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Original Xbox to a new life on the new next-generation game console Xbox Series X, and it will not damage the artistic performance of the game itself. This is indeed great things for a game player.
