In a statement to VGC, Microsoft confirmed that the Xbox Collection S is not going to assist variations of backward compatible games enhanced by the Xbox One X.
“Xbox Collection S was designed to be probably the most reasonably priced next-generation console and play next-generation video games at 1440P at 60fps,” says a Microsoft consultant. “To ship the best high quality backwards suitable expertise in keeping with the developer’s unique intent, the Xbox Collection S runs the Xbox One S model of backward suitable video games whereas making use of improved texture filtering, increased and extra constant body charges, sooner load occasions, and Auto HDR.”
So what does this truly imply from a participant perspective? Effectively, sure Xbox One titles (and older, backward suitable Xbox video games) utilized the facility of the Xbox One X to supply technical enhancements corresponding to improved framerates and 4K visuals. Basically, this system provided mushy “remasters” of titles like Forza Motorsport 7 and Halo 5: Guardians in addition to some older video games corresponding to Halo 3.
This assertion verifies that the Xbox Collection S is not going to provide those self same enhancements. That chance was notably referenced by the Digital Foundry crew who felt that the Xbox Collection S’ technical cutbacks (in comparison to the Xbox One X) would probably prohibit it from providing a number of the identical options that we noticed from probably the most highly effective model of the Xbox One.
