We sit on the cusp of the next age of entertainment. A the dawn of a new age of gaming. The release of the Xbox Series X/S is just around the corner. With the release so close, today Microsoft revealed details on of the console’s backwards compatibility feature. You can check out what Xbox’s official newsblog, Xbox Wire, had to say below.
“Backward compatible games run natively on the Xbox Series X and S, running with the full power of the CPU, GPU and SSD. [Titles will run at the] peak performance that they were originally designed for, with significantly higher performance than their original launch platform, resulting in higher and more steady framerates and rendering at their maximum resolution and visual quality.”
Wow, it looks like Microsoft really outdid Sony, at least on this aspect. I’m not sure this feature alone would persuade anyone to jump ship from Playstation to Xbox., but for those with large collections of old Microsoft games, this is definitely cool.
While I have no plans to get a console at launch, I do want to get one before the end of the year. Growing up I was a Nintendo kid. NES, SNES, N64, but not the Gamecube. And the reason for that was because I bought an Xbox instead. I stayed with xbox up until a few years ago, when they stopped making MLB2K, leaving Playstation as the console with a baseball game. The Show is far better game anyway. And since most games an be played on both consoles, with teh exception of a few exclusive on ech side. I had to switch.
Not sure which one I’m going to go with this time. I’ll have to do some research.
