Starting later this month a number of OG Xbox games will be made available for the Xbox One along with a number of Xbox 360 games that will receive Xbox One X enhancements.
Over on the Xbox Newswire, Microsoft announced that starting today the Xbox One X can play the following games with up to 16 times the pixel count of some of the original sub-HD games that came out for the OG Xbox and Xbox 360. The list of Xbox 360 games specifically receiving 4K upscaling support are below:
- Sonic Generations
- Gears of War 2
- Portal 2
- Red Dead Redemption
- Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
How To Activate Xbox One X Enhancements
If you press the menu button and view button on the Xbox One controller, you can bring up the blade menu where you’ll be able to go into the settings and switch between “Performance” mode and “Graphics” mode.
Simply scroll through the Xbox 360 guide and go over to the “Settings” tab.
Click on the “Xbox One X Settings” option within the menu.
Choose “Graphics” if you want the 4K upscaler enabled, or you can choose “Performance” for improved frame-rates of Xbox 360 games.
OG Xbox Backwards Compatible Titles
In addition to the Xbox One X enhancements for current backwards compatible Xbox 360 games, there are also a number of OG Xbox games that will be made available starting April 17th, 2018:
- Blinx: The Time Sweeper
- Conker: Live & Reloaded
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
- Hunter: The Reckoning
- Jade Empire
- Panzer Dragoon Orta

Starting April 26th, 2018 additional games will join the line-up as well, including:
- Destroy All Humans!
- Full Spectrum Warrior

- Star Wars Battlefront

I guess in the mind of Microsoft, if they can’t muster the talent to make good games for the Xbox One, they may as well revive all the good games from the OG Xbox and Xbox 360.
This is a nice throwback to giving gamers a look at some of BioWare’s classics, too… back when they didn’t have diversity hires ruining their reputation and making SJW crap that tanks their brands.
It’s also nice that gamers can finally play the REAL Star Wars: Battlefront on the Xbox One, instead of those slot machines pretending to be Star Wars games from DICE and EA.
Also, the underrated physics-based gem, Destroy All Humans!, from Pandemic Studios – yes, the exact same studio behind the original Star Wars: Battlefront – will be opened up to a whole new audience of gamers on the the Xbox One. Not many gamers, but some gamers.
