Microsoft Now Lets You Disable Xbox 360 Titles Enhanced for Xbox One X

Microsoft today announced some updates to Xbox 360 titles enhanced for the Xbox One X. The company is adding four new Xbox 360 titles enhanced for the Xbox One X, including The Witcher 2, Forza Horizon, Fabel Anniversary, and the original Crackdown.

The more important change announced today, however, is to do with the quality of these enhanced Xbox 360 titles. Till today, these enhanced titles have been running with the enhanced graphics on the Xbox One S. But Microsoft now gives you more control over how these games run — so you can now set the games to either run for improved performance (with the enhancements disabled) or for improved graphics (with improved enhancements, up to 9x the original pixel count).

It’s interesting to see Microsoft continuing to push ahead with Xbox 360 Backward Compatability on the Xbox One platform. Microsoft says Xbox One gamers have played more than 840 million hours of Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One consoles, and with more than 460 Xbox 360 games in the library, it clearly seems like a big success for the firm.
