The Xbox One X just got some amazing news thanks to Xbox exec Albert Penello who on Twitter just confirmed that some Xbox 360 games will be able to run at native 4K (2160p) resolution on the Xbox One X. This is due to the Xbox One X being able to run Xbox 360 games at 9x the resolution which works out at 3x the actual number, so if an Xbox 360 game originally ran at 720p native then on the Xbox One X it will run at Native 4K.
Original Xbox games will also get a significant bump in resolution as the Xbox One X will allow those games to run at 16x the resolution which works out at 4x the actual number. This means if the game was running at 480p on the original Xbox then it will run at 1920p on the Xbox One X which is close to native 4K. Original Xbox games will also get a bump on the Xbox One S but not as much as the Xbox One X, original Xbox games will run at 960p.
This is incredible news for backwards compatibility fans who are buying the Xbox One X. It’s going to make it even more worthwhile checking out your old games again with the massive increase in resolution.
