Gears of War 2, Red Dead Redemption, Portal 2, Sonic Generations, Darksiders, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed become Xbox One X enhanced today.
Wow, really nice work!
According to some people, these games will look worse on a 4k TV, after the enhancements 😆😆😆 great job Microsoft.
Those people are talking out of their 😼😼😼 I’ve tried RDR and Portal 2 and both look so much better than before. I’m on a 4K 2016 LG OLED
Exactly! Look how much better that looks! They cant help themselves I guess...
People will hate on anything Xbox. I installed red dead last night. I’m on a Sony Bravia xbr 4k/hdr 65” and it looks great.
Sad but true. Even with the same exact assets, just by increasing the resolution to native 4k we see how much better it looks from a AA standpoint...so much cleaner and sharper with no jaggies.
According to some people, some other people might be trolling but some people say that some people are not trolling so i dunno what some people are talking about .... Tried red dead and portal 2 myself yesterday and i can guarantee to some people that they look way better on a 4k tv, they sure do show age and texture look very matt but 100% they look better than the pixelated mess any 720p resolution looks like on a 4k tv
Who ever said that?
🤣🤣🤣You 're boy @MakoD!!! He be wildlin haha
Curious, wouldnt just playing on an xbo clean them up as well? i mean obviously an X will get you the 4k but on a regular unit it should still clean up nicely to 1080p.
You are correct. Some people think (cough cough MakoD) enhance just means that its taken the original native resolution and blowing it up to said higher resolution...they don't understand that Microsoft is changing the native resolution, allowing us to see the fine details better/clearer.
Red Dead Redemption looks incredible.. It's like a free remaster. Good job MS http://lh3.googleuserconten...
Glad I picked up a 360 copy of Red Dead a couple months ago with the X. This 4K patch quickly moves it up the pecking order of my backlog. Gears 2 was a given, but a little surprised they updated Portal 2 over L4D2 and Star Wars rather than Halo Reach. Portal 2 is fantastic though
The level of clarity on the X is amazing. This looks just like remastered versions of games we have to pay for ( Final fantasy XII Zodiac Edition & Kingdom hearts Remixes) . Hopefully this process will be on future consoles and we can take our collection with us.
Best thing about xbox. And they will just bring everything with every generation now. This was the point where I need an xbox one x now. I feel an epic E3 coming this year.
"Remastered" games are such bs. They are just ports rendered at higher res, rarely a few little changes here and there but nothing major. Some genius just took the term from music and movies, you know media that is actually put through a mastering process in the first place. In music/movies remaster means they re did the mastering from the source material, in games its just a marketing term. All that being said, sony actually does have a ps2 emulator on the ps4 but makes customers buy their games again to use it. Hackers have exposed it, shame on you sony.
Great job by MS in terms of BC.
Forgot how good Red looked might just pick it up again.
I love that Microsoft is doing this, it also proves my point about "remasters" just being ports rendered at higher resolution. Many console gamers just don't understand what render resolution increases can do for a games presentation, especially if the game was only 720p or less.
I agree remastered games are bs but I don't mind a full remake.
When it's done like Shadow of the Colossus that makes sense. Some other not so much.
Gotta love free remasters. It's like Christmas in my update queue :) Thanks Xbox!
The best looking version of the game gets better looking.
MS it’s time to step up I want see competition to play great games, it’s time for “exclusives” make this as your priority! Enchanted games or remastered can wait even backwards compatibility...🤦 We need great exclusives games! Please hear me. It’s all about games.
I would love to get some enchanted games.
Ha! Me too! I want magic.
then tell Microsoft not on here
One doesn't take away from the other. Those who work on BC have no influence on new games being released. This has been stated multiple times, yet some people don't seem to get it.
