Six Back Compat titles getting XB1X Enhancements (Red Dead Redemption, Gears 2, Portal 2, more)

I can only repeat myself again and again. I can't believe what a huge deal RDR is. The ONLY over 720p version world wide, for f'n free. This thing will sell whole consoles, SPECIALLY with RDR2 on the horizon. This will flood every news site tomorrow like it's the invention of sliced bread, it has to, it's such a big thing.

Absolute crazy that they made this possible.

Good that I have this title at home already, but the server are getting hammered right now.
Also, together with the OG Xbox game, time for quick ebay shopping until the physical copies are getting expensive now.
I agree. I posted a reply but not sure in what thread, but basically I NEVER thought Rock Star would allow this. I really expected them to release a RDR Remaster a few months before the new game comes out and charge $39.99 like they did with L.A. Noire.

I wonder how many of those people that said they would buy the "X" if RDR ever becomes "X" Enhanced?

I really hope this makes Sony give a damn about BC in the future. The job MS is doing with the 1X is astonishing. I definitely have to pick one up in the future. Should be the best console to play a lot of games from last generation and the even the one before.

They don't generally lift framerate caps with these updates, and both Portal 2 and Sonic Generations at least were locked to 30fps. I doubt that's changed.

Hopefully Generations sticks closer to 30 though, because it could have some pretty severe dips at times.

Changed region to US, only Gears 2 got the update, no RDR update yet and I hard reset it twice. D: It's 1:26 am here, come ooooooooon.

Edit:

Wait, even after patch Gears 2 is still not labeled as enhanced, mhhh maybe RDR is patched then, I will check it out quick.

This one is better.

Man, if this plays at a locked 30 and revitalizes online MP a bit, I am seriously considering picking up an X and upgrading to a 4K TV. Despite having severe flaws, GoW2 was the game that got me into competitive shooters and literally changed my life for years.

Hearing stuff about a Performance Mode in RDR? Anyone know if this is 60 FPS? That would require some engine changes I reckon, as RDR was locked to 30? Or did it have no vsync?

Performance mode only disable X enhancement, so it runs just like before those X enhancement, they can't change the framerate lock with the emulator.

Hey so I own a 4K tv but I don’t have enough room at the moment to use it so I’m gaming on an older 1080p monitor 24’. Is it worth getting an xb1x with just a standard 1080p monitor or should I just wait until I can use my 4K tv?
