Xbox One games won't be the only ones to look better when played on Xbox One X. Enhancements will also be available for a select number of Xbox 360 games, Microsoft confirmed today.

According to a report from IGN, some of the enhanced backward compatible titles have "10-bit color depth unlocked where they previously had 8-bit" and some have high-dynamic range (HDR) lighting enabled.

One of the features that lacks in the Xbox compared to the PS4 Pro is VR capabilities.

These are still the same games you remember playing, but a bit better.

Weather Service Issues Storm Advisory, Tornado Watch for Moore County
Officials with Spartanburg Regional say they have received eight storm-related injuries so far, but majority are minor. The National Weather Service has issued watches for flash flooding and tornadoes in Watauga County and beyond.

That's only a total of 12 games for the initial lineup, which isn't much, sure, but it does include Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Ninja Gaiden Black, two beloved fan favorites. Each one has 1080p resolution, faster loading times, and higher/smoother frame rates. Notice the sharper textures and improved aliasing.

Microsoft is likely to bring a unique boot up screen on one of the most powerful gaming console's to hit stores this year, the Xbox One X. The Xbox One X was unveiled at the world's largest gaming expo E3 2017. Basically, you can have players on the original Xbox, Xbox One, and Xbox One X face each other in old-school LAN parties.

Playing the games will work similarly to playing existing backwards compatible Xbox 360 games: if you own the disc pop it in; if you own it digitally, it will automatically show up for download.

Online multiplayer isn't supported by these titles, but System link is.
