  • Xbox One X 4K game assets Alpha update

Most of Microsoft's messaging around Xbox One X has emphasized how current games are even better on this improved hardware. Additionally, all the previous Xbox One games will play better on Xbox One X.

The announcement says that these select titles will run at higher resolutions, 9X the original pixel count as well as expanded color details.

Today Microsoft announced that the first wave of original Xbox games were joining the Backward Compatibility program on October 24, 2017. While performance bumps weren't explicitly mentioned, it's worth noting that Xbox One's emulation technique often brings certain enhancements such as framerate smoothing. The visual performance enhancements alone might be enough for some to replay instant classics like Knights of the Old Republic and Psychonauts, but as anyone who owned an original Xbox knows, shorter load times are also incredibly welcome.

Chelsea Players Reportedly 'Unhappy' with Antonio Conte's Methods Amid Slump
Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte says that midfielder N'Golo Kante's hamstring injury is less severe than first feared. Chelsea's players are said to now be unhappy with Antonio Conte and his training regime at Stamford Bridge.

You can see that the leak was more or less spot on, and according to gematsu, Black has also been added to the list. Since the original Xbox servers have been offline for years, online multiplayer will not be supported. Numerous games can already be bought digitally for $9.99 on the Xbox Store, but all games are enhanced with 1080p resolution, faster loading times, and faster/smoother framerates. For instance, games that supported system link play - such as Crimson Skies - will still support system link play. While the games can be bought from the store, they do not show up on the Xbox One's "Ready to Install" list, which tells us that Microsoft has yet to flip the switch, so to speak.

What do you think about the arrival of the title of Team Ninja studio to Xbox Game Pass? And to help celebrate the launch of Original Xbox games into the Xbox One Backward Compatibility library, Xbox Game Pass members get access to Xbox Original Ninja Gaiden Black for free as a part of their membership to the game subscription service. Will you play it again?
