Experience Your Xbox 360 Favorites Enhanced on the Xbox One X
Some of the best games to arrive on the Xbox family of consoles are witnessing a visual upgrade for the latest box. Microsoft has officially confirmed that The Witcher 2, Forza Horizon, Crackdown, and Fable shall witness Xbox One X enhancements.
According to Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson, the aforementioned Xbox 360 games will enter this console generation with new graphical settings. As reported on Nelson’s blog, this quartet of titles shall receive upped pixel counts facilitated by the power of the Xbox One X console. Conveniently, designers don’t have to reconfigure the code in order to make this happen. In essence, we’ll be witnessing the exact games we know and love but prettier. Or as Hryb said:
“Xbox 360 games that are enhanced for Xbox One X run at a higher resolution and 9X the original pixel count on Xbox One X,” he wrote. “The power of Xbox One X enables the Xbox 360 emulator to showcase the very best version of the game possible with the existing assets-all without touching the game code.”
Hyrb has since broadcasted the news on Twitter. On top of Fable, Witcher 2, Crackdown, and Forza Horizon, we’ll be witnessing more oldies but goodies enhanced for the Xbox One X. Stay tuned for details. For now, Xbox One X owners can relish the opportunity to play these classic titles in better quality.

The Witcher 2 originally released for PC and arrived for the Xbox 360 console a year later. However, it never released for PlayStation 3. Therefore, we will only ever witness The Witcher 2 on the Xbox, where consoles are concerned. This time around, it will be in ultra-high resolution. Like its successor, the Witcher 3, expect a stunning spectacle of a narrative-driven story starring Geralt. Last year, The Witcher 3 was enhanced to 4K resolution, so this latest news is not too much of a surprise. But, what are your thoughts? Feel free to comment below.
