Here's a comparison for Final Fantasy XIII between the Xbox 360 and Xbox One X version running at 4K resolution.
Just bought this on amazon for like 5 Euro
Just purchased all three in the trilogy used for $15 U.S. Can't go wrong there.
Damn! Not bad at all.
Looks great!!! Pity the game is crappy.
Dont matter how gorgeous it is in 4k cause i would never reply it the second time... Forced myself the first time and barely touched the 2 & 3 installment.. Just sitting there collecting dust.
"masterworks all you can't go wrong"
whoa thats awesome. I love when dev take advantage of the Xbox One X power.
Judging by the disagrees, it seems some people on N4G don't like developers taking advantage of the extra power in the X. I wonder why that would be? Hmm
It's port of the PC assets. I wouldnt say a game from 2009 is using Xbox One X power. Id hope it could do better than that
@tedcruz they are disagreeing because they wasted their time improving the visuals of a shitty game rather than a bunch of better deserving games out there.
That makes two of us
@Army Nah. They're disagreeing because they're salty AF lol.
Jeeze that’s amazing. It’s like a free remaster
Best feature of Xbox. BC alone is a console seller for me.
Huh? Why didn't you just get a 360
@Unreal https://n4g.com/news/478406... the 360 version was 576p, that’s a huge bump up in resolution, that you’d only get on the X
Krib You've had that on PC since release. Is the Xbox One X still locked at 30fps?
@kirb Legendary find. Did you also look at the toxic comment section? Wow lol.
I completely agree
@slate Yeah man, that comment section was savage. A buddy of mine sent me that link when we were talking about the freemaster and i couldnt believe it
Lol "but why didn't you buy a 360?" *knowledge dropped* "but why didn't you buy it on PC?" 😂
Unreal your 360 retort is the worst troll comment I've read in awhile. Clearly the Xbox One X version is superior to the 360 version
Itd the definitive console version
Xbox offers remasters at no cost. Sony offers them at a premium.
If you think this is on the level of say Shadow of the colossus you are crazy.
Mkis There's a difference betweem a remaster, as seen here, and a remake - such as the recent Spyro release. Difference being, Sony makes you pay for both.
F2P is false advertisement on Xbox live.
Wé actually pretty much never get any remasters on the PS4...
Hey you are the one saying Sony makes you pay for them...fact is they put a lot more into them than just bumping the resolution and anisotropic filtering. Since when did Sony acquire the license for Spyro again? You keep attributing 3rd party remasters to Sony. Sony put's in a lot more effort than that.
Let’s not act like there’s none of those PS4 remasters on the Xbone. Hell, there was the DMC collection remaster which was already on Xbox 360... so why isn’t that one free?
so i guess onimusha should be free also when that launches? wait so why make a master chief collection
@mkis I'm going to stop responding to you, being you're too dense to keep up with the conversation, and keep putting words in my mouth. My questions to leave you with, though, is where is the BC offered from Sony? Let alone the updated versions, offered on the simple fact you bought their console? @carmelo and Crimson If the updated release wasn't handled by Microsoft, of course, it's going to be for sale. That's a 3rd party product, looking to use Microsoft's system as a means to sell their product. But we have a company in Microsoft, looking to all of these old games, and making modernized versions of them, for free, simply as a thank you for purchasing the console. On the other side, you have Sony, who cut out BC, completely, early last generation, and then released countless remasters that entire generation; throwing everything else, unaltered, up on their online store, for a premium.
Ad Hominem... You have no argument. And you outright lie in what you type.
Yea thats the selling point of the X. It upconverts everything. I cant afford on but I may get it down the line.
Just waou... This is 4theplayers and for free
They have to make up for the lack of exclusives somehow. BC is nothing to get excited about.
You dont think purchasing 7 new studios will do that? With a good possibility of more on the way?
@Kornholic - *in my opinion there, fixed that for you.
Adding "in my opinion" to a sentence is redundant. Unless you are citing a source or quoting somebody, everything you say is "in your opinion."
They do have exclusives (3 this years, the same amount as the PS4). And next year more are coming, especially with the acquisition of 7 studios. People like you just moan and b**** no matter what MS does.
Wow...I might actually pick up the game now. It will get added to the back log, but what else is new...
I'd be beggin like Madcon for a Remaster of the Trilogy.
No need to beg...these enhanced versions bump the native resolution up to native 4k...for a game I might already have or can get on the cheap... Ill take that all day long!
You're so correct! Unfortunately, I don't own an Xbox One console. I'll just have to deal with it.
Yup but the downside is,it's still FFXIII. Just a polished turd.
Hush, you can't say that now because there is tiny community who actually like XIII and they were really depressed about being minority who couldn't speak up back then, but now because no one really care about XIII(except that minority) they attack anyone who critisize that linear 20 hours of tuturial game.
It's the other way around the minority are the ones saying the negativity about FFXIII, usually most of the time it's a minority group of naysayers saying what they don't like about a game or whatever it may be.
Juding by how many disagree i'd say its the other way around... but to each of us our opinion seems like a majaority...
@Elda FF13 has a metscore of 83 (it has to be the lowest of all main FF games) but 83 isnt super bad so we give Square that benefit. Then we have 13-2 at 79 and 13-3 at 66. It's clearly not a minority thinking these games are average at best. Anyway cool feature on the xbox though.
You can’t polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter
I loved 13
I like that Microsoft is single-handedly putting a stop to quick remasters with their backwards compatibility service. It's a pity that the improvements are only for the X and not the base model as well, but it's something. At least this way we may get more actual remakes instead of barely-updated remasters.
Base model adds V-sync, more Anisotrophic, better upscale and in most cases better frame rate. To render natave at 4K you need much more power then the original Xbox One or Xbox One S.
Of course I wouldn't be expecting 4k with the base model, but 1080p native on older titles should be plausible. AFAIK, the base model still renders at the 360's resolution, which is at best 720p.
I must’ve just dreamt the Master Chief Collection then. Oh, and the Gears remastered
Gears was a remake, don't know about MCC. All I know is that their approach at least gives us a way to play older classics such as Red Dead Redemption 1 with basically all the improvements a remaster would include without having to re-buy the game or hope that the publisher even releases a remaster. If that is not good, then I don't know what is.
They came out before the Xbox One X, so that coment is totally off.
Still a terrible game.
Absolutely incredible. The back compat team at Xbox are wizards.
Too bad the game sucks.
Opinions opinions everyone has one
Wait so now everyone loves FF13?
I think anyone who has already bought and still has it...for those peoples, I'd say they at least like it haha. The game has already been released and I believe sold best on 360 so a lot of people still have their copies. The fact that its now enhanced in 4K is just gravy, and the fact that I can pick it up for a few bucks is even better.
I think it sold the most copies on PS3. I enjoyed it so I might pick it up again on the 360 to take advantage of the updated graphics.
Most copies sold on the PS3 including FFXIII was exclusive on the PS3 in Japan.
You might be right...its hard to remember such things. I do remember lots of multiplats selling better on 360 but I can't remember specific titles. But yeah, I don't anticipate millions of gamers going out to buy it again, but Def gravy for those that still have it, which I would imagine is at least a million considering the game sold over 7 million copies. And just for the record...the graphics aren't updated...the resolution is. However, it does make the game crisp and clear with virtually no jaggies and allows the texture work that is there to pop more.
Compared to FF15, I’d definitely say yes.
Right? The struggle is that sales of og FFXIII on PS3 is more than or barely equal to sales of every FF that ever released on Xbox brand.
I'm really hopping PS5 runs PS3 games and does this type of stuff.
