For better or for worse, Xbox today means the Xbox Series X, the Xbox One X, the Xbox One, the Xbox 360, and the plain old Xbox from 2001. Microsoft’s focus on cross-generation compatibility hasn’t gone down in some circles because of the very real risk that cross-gen games will constrain developers from pushing 9th generation hardware to its limits.
However, on the flip side, the commitment to compatibility means that the Xbox Series X is set to become the best possible platform to play previous-generation Xbox games. Backwards compatibility here isn’t just an afterthought. With compatibility ingrained in its DNA, the Series X delivers meaningful image quality, graphics, and performance improvements in just about every backwards compatible game.
In some cases, the out-of-the-box backwards compatibility offers better visuals and performance than many full-priced remastered in the eighth-generation. How is Microsoft making this happen? What’s the secret to Xbox Series X backwards compatibility? Let’s take a look!
