Take a look at a direct comparison between how Halo 3's "High Ground" multiplayer map looks running on Xbox One X vs. its original Xbox 360 version.
he jags are gone. and the textures are better. Frame rate should be more stable too with much better lad times. We shall see.
Can wait to play Halo 3 again on my X!
Really hoping for a perfect lock no frame pacing issues
Same textures, now properly filtered. Basically an extreme case example of what the built-in 16xAF will do for games. Assuming this is just Halo 3 with the baseline Xbox One X enhancements and no extra refinement, this is an impressive demo. Though it does also serve as a "look what PC gamers have been doing with every multiplatform game for the last decade" air to it.
As Gears "upgrade" nothing memorable. Shallow update and still images to spot.
Huge improvements! I honestly dont see myself playing this version of the game however as I maxed it already but damn, for those that do its a great improvement. Is this getting added to MCC?
"huge" must mean something different now.
haha...its alright buddy, relax.
Yeah, well it was slightly improved with minor detail upgrades but hey fixing jags, improving load times and rock solid framerate is cool, especially for free. Mostly I'm much more excited to check out the difference in games that are getting the full 4K treatment.
No huge still means huge
@ timotim I am relaxed, but sese your the one who replied to my comment you must be the one who needs to relax. @ G-haul Not frustrated at all little guy, I dont play old games so I dont get charged anything you on the other hand feel its necessary to buy a five hundred dollar console to play games from ages ago with slightly updated graphics, so which of us is actually spending money? @Kiwi66 So then he used it wrong here, thanks for clearing that up.
Looks good! I'll try and go back to playing this as it's been a while. Can't wait to see the major improvements that the X will bring!!!
Well errr no but maybe Reach (idk) but MCC is getting an update UI overhaul
Halo 3 is already in 1080/60 in MCC, unless you mean the multiplayer aspect...
Quite impressive. I have a handful of 360 games that I have been holding off playing since the X was announced. With this improvement I am quite glad I did.
Not worth the five hundred dollar upgrade.
Yes, because people only buy the X1X for an upscaled 360 game...
I mean, the main selling point of the 1x is upscaled 360 games. Can you name any big exclusives that are releasing?
Must be that, it sure wont be for its library of console exclusive games.
@Off It's part of the package though dude... Or were you under the impression that the X is only coming with Halo 3 enhanced?
I was under the impression there would be real games worth buying the console for, theres not.
Then its obviously not for you then mate. Move on then ay? Or do you have a few more passive aggressive fanboy remarks to go yet? Lol
How sad are you?
No it is not worth $500. With what this machine can do, it is worth $700 and it would still be a bargain.
But you'd buy it at whatever price Microsoft sold it for cause you're a shill, a cuck and a Microsoft sheep.
Depends. If you have ever purchased a remastered game then i think it would be. Free upgrades for 360 And xbox one games is a great incentive. Of course it is not for everyone.
can't wait to play again on the X
I missed out on so much Halo 3 fun because I was living at a place with horrible internet at that time :( High Ground always was one of my favourite maps in any Halo game though.
I would like to see a comparison between Halo 3 MCC and the Xbox One X
That's just it though. Halo3 in MCC is just a higher resolution version of 360. It features none of this visual enhancements which is why I'm trying to figure out if this is coming to MCC...
Still some LOD error/pop in at the end with the top bush above the Halo sam site (Curious they don't show 360 and One X walking around. Leads me to believe that that will stay the same, but the up res is phenomenal. And with no frame stutter and no triple buffer delay I think its safe to say that Valhalla water will flow from your screen into your living room ;)
Looks good to me, cant wait to get my 1x.
I want to be sold on the xbox x, I really do. But seeing a marginal improvement at best on a decade old game doesn't do that for me, and in fact makes the purchase of an x1x seem even more nonsensical.
Should have been what we saw in the original x1
The improvements in textures and anti-aliasing look fantastic.
its over anakin
I'm a PS4 and PS3 owner who skipped out on the 360 and Xbox One. But this is an insane level of emulation AND improvement. I didn't realize the Xbox One X was able to play 360 games and original Xbox games. Even at $500, that's a hell of a deal being able to play 3 generations worth of titles so long as you have the game disc. And that's easy enough considering we have Ebay.
Damn, I loved this map.
Biggest difference is those jaggies!
