Nearly all backward compatible games also benefit from Auto HDR and 16x texture filtering. Meanwhile, some games will also have their framerates doubled.

Microsoft also confirmed that cloud saves on Xbox 360 will soon be free, allowing players to carry all their game saves forward into the next generation. The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are set to release on November 10.
