    I wonder if Sonic Generations is hard-capped to 30.

    But hey, RDR! I've never actually played it, 4K will be lovely.

    Rockstar re-released the game with an Xbox one banner? Smart

    The game's main menu is in 4K, I doubt it goes back to 720p if you chose Undead Nightmare :)

    In fact, the whole game is tricked to render in 4K, so it must be too.

    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?

    It says RDR is still not X enhanced, and I didn't get an update. Are we sure these shots are with the X patch, or is this a placebo effect?

    Need to re-release this again with X Enhancements banner lol.

    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.

    Go ahead. Then enjoy the best version of RD2 shortly after.

    I’m stoked for Sonic and Star Wars. Both are on my backlog.

    This is what I’m wondering too actually. If it’s 60fps on X then oh my.

    I'd like to know this as well.
  21. 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.

    Sonic Gen was hardcapped @ 30 on 360. It had awesome motionblur tho at least

    I've been putting off replaying RDR on the off chance that it would get an X enhancement. Definitely glad I waited.
  24. This is the reason I bought an X. Fucking hyped. I will finally give Red Dead a real attempt

    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.


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

    Are any of these HDR like Halo 3 and Mirror's Edge?

    my laziness in playing RDR before RDR 2 for the first time has paid off, i wonder if I wait long enough it'll be VR enabled or something

    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.

    It is patched! Even if it doesn't say it is. Super sampled 1080p screens are coming in a minute boys.

    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?
  34. GSY Miguel

    GSY Miguel Member

    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.

    I have the GOTY edition and undead nightmare also got the patch.

    Sonic Generations (locked to 30, motion blur only when modern Sonic "boosts")

    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?

    I need to dig up a full list of Xbox 360 games that work on the Xbox one. If it’s more than 75% of my library I might just go ahead and pick up an Xbox one and retire the 360
