Xbox marketing chief confirms more 360 games will be upgraded for Xbox One X
More Xbox 360 games should look crisp on an Xbox One X in the future.
When the Xbox One X launched, Microsoft surprised consumers by announcing that certain Xbox 360 games would be enhanced for the console. Experiences like Fallout 3 and Halo 3 look absolutely stunning on a 4K display due to the increase in resolution. However, many thought that the company wouldn't upgrade other Xbox 360 games because it was only used to market the console at launch.
Luckily, that doesn't appear to be the case at all. Albert Penello, the head of Marketing for Xbox Consoles, confirmed that more Xbox One X Enhanced Xbox 360 games are coming soon. It's unclear which titles will make the cut or when customers should expect them.

The added power of the Xbox One X allows the company to render more pixels even when it comes to older games. The device launched on November 7, 2017 and is the most powerful console ever made. The Xbox One X features 6 teraflops of processing power and 12 GB of memory. In addition to that, the console contains a 4K Blu-ray player and offers a faster hard drive for improved load times. For those looking to make the most of their gaming experience — no matter if it's the desire for higher resolutions or more stable frame rates — the console may be the device for you.
