Even Some Xbox 360 Games Receive Xbox One X Enhancements

Xbox One X 4K game assets Alpha update

Backward compatibility for original Xbox games on the Xbox One was announced at E3 earlier this year, though Xbox big boss Phil Spencer has yet to reveal when the feature will launch for its currnet-gen console. Numerous games can already be bought digitally for $9.99 on the Xbox Store, but all games are enhanced with 1080p resolution, faster loading times, and faster/smoother framerates.

All of the original Xbox games have been enhanced to play at a resolution of 1080p.

Microsoft last night aired the debut TV commercial for the Xbox One X during Sunday Night Football and the season premiere of The Walking Dead, ahead of the console's release in just over two weeks time on November 7th.

Since then it has added a number of titles on a monthly basis but based on fan feedback, the Xbox Engineering team will start to pilot a new way to launch Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles.

Really, how could we not lead with Knights Of The Old Republic? System Link multiplayer still works, though, for those of you who want to relive the days of old LAN parties. What that means is that the finer details like online multiplayer and achievements for the games will not be available.

When attempting to buy any of the games on Xbox One, none were appearing in the dashboard. Explore Games on Demand to see all available titles. Even so, I hope we can at least expect Microsoft-published titles like Halo and Blinx: The Time Sweeper (you laugh but it is a legitimately good game).

Like backwards compatible Xbox 360 games, one simply needs to insert an Xbox game disk into the Xbox One.
