Microsoft and their usual Xbox Series X marketing continue. Intending to inspire gamers across the globe, Microsoft tends to set new install new beliefs of performance among the fans. In a recent Newswire update, it was claimed that thousands of games would be available to play on the Xbox Series X, which, understandably, lots of them will be backward compatible games.
This further proves that all the backward compatible games will be available at the player’s Xbox Series X repository on launch.
With more than 100,000 hours of play testing already completed, thousands of games are already playable on Xbox Series X today, from the biggest blockbusters to cult classics and fan favorites. Many of us in Team Xbox play on the Xbox Series X daily as our primary console and switching between generations is seamless. By the time we launch this holiday, the team will have spent well over 200,000 hours ensuring your game library is ready for you to jump in immediately.
Furthermore, the Xbox Series X naturally, judged by its hardware, is supposed to run those games with almost double the frame rates of what the Xbox One could’ve achieved. During the tests performed by Microsoft, these games performed at peak performance, and backward compatible titles sustain crucially lower loading times.
Not only should gamers be able to play all of these games from the past, but they should play better than ever before. Backwards compatible games run natively on the Xbox Series X hardware, running with the full power of the CPU, GPU and the SSD. No boost mode, no downclocking, the full power of the Xbox Series X for each and every backward compatible game. This means that all titles run at the peak performance that they were originally designed for, many times even higher performance than the games saw on their original launch platform, resulting in higher and more steady framerates and rendering at their maximum resolution and visual quality. Backwards compatible titles also see significant reductions in in-game load times from the massive leap in performance from our custom NVME SSD which powers the Xbox Velocity Architecture. As I play through my personal backlog as part of our internal testing, all of the incredible games from Xbox One and earlier play best on Xbox Series X.
