The official Microsoft website gives new details about the backward compatible titles of the Xbox family.
In less than a month the new generation will come with Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S . From Microsoft they are aware that one of their greatest assets will be the backward compatibility of the games of the entire Xbox family , and they have deepened with new details in this regard. They assure that the team dedicated to such work has dedicated more than 500,000 hours in the last year to testing thousands of games from four generations of Xbox to prepare for the launch of the new consoles.
In a statement published on its official website, Xbox delves into the benefits of backward compatibility, offering shorter loading times , auto-HDR and improved graphics and frame rates.
The maximum resolution of Xbox Series S is 1440p
Most of these aspects were known in Xbox Series X, but from Microsoft they imply that they will work in the same way in Xbox Series S, the cheapest next-generation console from the Redmond company. Thus, you can enjoy, for example, Fallout 4 with visual improvements and a refresh rate of 60 frames per second in either of the two systems, as illustrated by the video you see on these lines.
In the blog they specify that Xbox games that ran at 720p on Xbox 360 and 360p on the original Xbox, can be played at 4K resolution on Xbox Series X using the so-called Heutchy method. As Xbox Series S is not capable of reaching this figure, the backward compatible titles will run at 1440p , also taking advantage of the rest of the improvements they will have. such as Auto-HDR, improvements in texturing or the aforementioned increase in framerate as in the aforementioned Fallout 4.
