“More” Xbox One X Enhanced Xbox 360 Games “Coming Soon”, Microsoft Marketing Manager Confirms
According to Microsoft’s marketing manager Albert Penello, more backwards compatible Xbox 360 will be Xbox One X enhanced soon.
Penello took to Twitter to answer a question from a fan regarding the Xbox One X Enhanced program for Xbox 360 games being backwards compatible with Microsoft’s Xbox One system. “Yes”, the marketing manager clearly replied. “More coming soon!”.
Microsoft announced that it would be extending its XB1X enhanced program to existing Xbox 360 titles back in October of last year – just before the launch of the Xbox One X on November 7, 2017.
To date, 7 backwards compatible Xbox 360 games have received enhancements for Microsoft’s powered-up Xbox One console, including Halo 3, Fallout 3, Assassin’s Creed, Gears of War 3, and Skate 3.
“When the world’s most powerful console launches on Nov. 7, you will be able to run select Xbox 360 games at higher resolution, 9X the original pixel count, and expanded color details”, Microsoft wrote back in October of last year. “The team developed the Heutchy Method (after the engineer who created it) which leverages the power of Xbox One X to let the Xbox 360 emulator present the very best version of the game possible with the existing assets—all without touching the game code. The same method improves the graphics for Original Xbox games on Xbox One and Xbox One S.”
