https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2021/02/17/making-backward-compatible-games-even-better-with-fps-boost/

Initially with 5 games but they will be releasing more games every couple of weeks. It does not boost resolution just the FPS. Boosts the games to 60fps (Super Lucky's Tale is 120) The initial games are:

UFC 4

Far Cry 4

New Super Lucky's Tale

Sniper Elite 4

Watch Dogs 2

here is DF's analysis of it

I thought Xbox had no "boost mode"? ๐Ÿ˜›

But yeah, being able to play games at 60fps+ is always great to see.

I figured if they did this it would have to be on a per-game basis. Earlier MS was saying they would like developers to do this but I guess that never ended up happening because they didn't want to do more testing on old games that they might not see a sales boost from just for doing that.

Now it looks like MS is taking on the burden of patching and testing. Maybe their experience in doing all this testing to get older games working on 360 and Xbox One will help them out here. I'm surprised to see only 5 games out the gate nonetheless.

Getting games to run at 60fps will be a good boost from 30, but 120fps will make less of an impression.

@drummerdave9099: If they could get that to 4k too it would be nice

Lol I wish.

This is most-likely because when the games were first created, the devs went ahead and did like smart programmers do and made them frame-rate independent.

From Software may be great at crafting atmosphere and game play, but programming? Not so much. Here's hoping they've taken what they've learned about cross-platform dev and made some good changes to the engine and their workflow for Elden Ring.

2024 vs 3.5 months hmmm.. not really seeing the argument there ๐Ÿ˜„ You're also neglecting Returnal, which, since you love 7/10 of games, you should be super hyped for. Let's also not forget existing games, including the 92 MC Demon's Souls ๐Ÿ˜Ž

This is awesome of Microsoft. At least they are really trying to offer some serious value for your money with Xbox Series if you aren't a PC gamer.

@goldenelementxl: @remiks00: Pull your heads in, as a console only gamer i've never once gave a shit about FPS.

For you golden, thats like saying all Switch gamers like to sit in their own filth while they play the Switch like you do.

And remiks i presume you're a hermit, so that's like me saying you all are fat and have plenty of body hair and live in their parents basement.

Golden i hope you wash your hands when you're done & remik i hope you wax your back ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

@wonderwinner: No they never patched it for One X/Series. It's still locked at 30. If it's possible to have unlocked frame rate on PS4/5 then it should be possible on Xbox though.

Yay for old games. Weren't lems dissing Demon Souls for being old. Now they're praising old crap? I guess more low tier trash incoming for Gamepass.

Nope. PS4 Pro got an enhancement/patch back in the day that targeted 1080p and 60fps. Xbox One X never did. So PS5 runs that PS4 Pro patch. Xbox Series is still stuck at 30fps, and I believe it's even only 900p... not great

Cool, I actually have both Far Cry 4 and Sniper Elite 4 installed so will be interesting to see the difference. Fc4 also uses auto HDR which is a nice touch.

Now, if they'd please get back to updating the Xbox 360 BC catalog with new titles.

This is a pretty sweet feature ... don't think it'll push me to get one though since I have a decent PC, unless they started giving 360 games this treatment. Gears 2 + 3 at 60 FPS would be pretty nice.

@sleepnsurf: Nah 5 is the worst in the series, well that or 2, but i heard the New Dawn one sucked also.

The best 2 in the series are 3 & Primal and 4 is just ok.

Let me chime in on a few things. Console gamers never care about better framerates for decades during Xbox 360/PS3/Xbox One/PS4 era until now. Even Phil Spencer knew that console gamers never care for 60fps but at least console gamers are getting more options to choose from this time around.

Damn, you salty because both hermits were telling the truth.

That's because those of us console gamers that cared became PC gamers.
