Original Xbox backwards compatibility is here

Gears of War 4 Will Support Upto 60 FPS On Xbox One X With Two Rendering Modes

This Visually Stunning Premiere Xbox One X Ad Really Plays Up 4K Power

To be precise, Penello confirmed on Twitter that Xbox 360 games will run at 2160p resolution. This mode uses Ultra Quality Textures, a wealth of new and improved graphical features all at 4K resolution (3840×2160) thanks to the power of Xbox One X. You'll experience the same frame rates you've come to expect from Gears of War 4 - 30fps for Campaign and Horde. But today, we'll focus on the ones that we know are coming.

Quite a few of these actually made our top 35 list, so it's encouraging to see that Phil and his team are bringing the games that people really want.

After a long wait, Microsoft has finally introduced backwards compatibility support for original Xbox games on Xbox One.

These games, like the 13 now available, will run at 1080p on the Xbox One and Xbox One S. The powerful Xbox One X, launching November 1, will run the first-generation Xbox games at 4K, some 16 times more than their original resolution.

Microsoft will likely reveal more OG Xbox backward compatible games in the future, but as Phil Spencer warns, there won't be too many of them. For those who don't own the game but pick up the Xbox One X when it launches, Microsoft is also offering a free 10-hour trial of the game. There will also be no Achievements for Original Xbox games because this functionality was also not originally available. If someone purchased one of the original Xbox games that were already on the Xbox 360 store, then the digital license will carry over and they will appear under the ready to install list.

But more are on their way as Bill Stillwell, lead program manager of the Xbox platform, said that Microsoft's gaming arm has a "curated list of original Xbox classics" which will be released for the Xbox One early 2018.
