Xbox has added a grand total of 13 additional games to the list of titles that support FPS Boost on Xbox Series X|S. Many of the new games support up to 120 fps now, and are all included through EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
dang, boosted to 120fps now?
Is it just me or are all (or most) of those EA games???
Look closer at the announcement and you'll see the 'EA Play' logo. This update was specifically for EA games.
Yup if you actually click into the article the title is really, "13 new EA titles on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate now support Xbox Series X|S FPS Boost up to 120fps"
They are all EA games and other than a couple of them the servers are empty but if your gonna run a rental service you gotta pretend like you care and keep these games going. Sounds like some good will but really a crappy game on day one like Say Titanfall is still a crappy game at 120fps 7yrs later but the crap runs smoother. Anyone remember when Microsoft was hyping Titanfall as the Call of Duty killer? Lol ....then the second it released it died never to be heard from again.... Until today!
I'm just excited to try it out on those games!
That is awesome, a few weeks ago I upgrade my monitor and let me tell you, 120fps is amazing. CoD , Ori 2 and DMC 5 is fantastic, super buttery. @SpinSaw You really that bitter about games? how could you spin this into a negative? You need a girlfriend/boyfriend/dog/cat, something to help sort out that negative energy.
This comment cracks me up. You're always so clueless about everything but can't help yourself.
yo that’s sick . Titanfall 2 still plays amazing and on 120fps wow
13 "additional" games getting the fps boost treatment. No new games there
yeah cause that means they cant possibly release new games in the future
If you don't care about this news then go back to your precious PS3 store! ;)
This came out of nowhere... and damn, 120hz - their backwards compatibility work is really technically impressive.
So you think anyone down voting you is a sony fanboy? You do know there are nintendo and pc gamers too (and pc gamers seem to care a lot more about these technical things) People have a valid right/reason to disagree with any opinion
Ok then so why is it that when it's a PS article and people get downvoted they immediately blame Xbox fans and i bet that you don't say anything like you have here
Gamer75 I didn't say that was right did I? I basically said people shouldn't care about agrees or disagrees and give their opinion without becoming fanboys But in today's world anyone who gets any push back gets labelled that's why we can't get nothing done properly. On this site especially I see this where someone will comment and say my comment will get disagrees because of PlayStation or xbox fanboys. Why care so much about agree/disagree. I do miss the bubble system in this site because we had the open zone for fanboys and mature conversation could be had elsewhere
Really hope Sony can do something similar, at least to 60fps. Don't have a TV that support 120fps, nor do most people, so that's not a huge deal just yet but it's definitely nice. At least give us Horizon 60fps, Sony.
I have held off on playing a few playstation games until this happens. Mainly, bloodbourne, and the last guardian. Hopefully this is something that happens soon.
This. So seriously this where is that Horizon FPS patch? It's so smooth on PC I want to see that on PS5!
I bought my new TV to be able to do 4k ,120fps , and HDR. I have been enjoying my XSX.
I'm holding out for philips to produce an ambilight 120hz panel Aaarghh.... titanfall 2 in 120 gets my juices flowing
It's a huge deal for me. I have a LG CX and I bought to specifically for next gen 120 gaming. I want as many 120 fps game options as possible.
I assume Sony's lower level API makes system level tweaks like this much harder to achieve. That's one of the advantages of working on a higher abstraction level. The tradeoff is that a high level API won't give you access to the same degree of hardware utilization of any given system. Basically the same thing that makes some Playstation titles so impressive, might stand in the way of features like this.
The only one on that list which is a decent addition is sea of solitude it's now 60fps. The rest of them were already 60fps titles so it's not impressive that they are boosted to 120 as ppl without 120htz TV won't benifit Games that we need are like Dishonoured 2 excellent 4k visuals but 30fps look, if titles like that are boosted to 60fps then it's like a free remaster in a way
My TV supports 120hz. It is a 65 inch gaming TV. Going to upgrade to 75 or 80 inches when I move to Utah in a couple of months. Totally worth it!
I got the Samsung 85" Q80t and it has a great picture even on a large screen.
@itsmebryan I am looking to get the 55" Q80T model, currently sits at £900 in the UK though, waiting for it to drop a bit more :p
@djstooty The price may go done but remember it was replaced the new Neo series. Stock maybe limited. After I bought mine they were out of stock a month later. Also check Samsung's site directly they had the best price I can find, free shipping and 0% interest for upto 4 years . Also you get a discount based on your job. I got an extra $300 off.
I'm glad they're catering to those who do have 120hz TV's. I want the absolute most out of my console.
It's the perfect fit for older titles too. As we transition out of the cross-gen period 120 fps modes will probably become increasingly rare due to the increased complexity of 'new gen' games. Last gen games on the other hand aren't nearly as demanding so getting them up to 120 fps is a great way of offering some options for people that have a 120Hz panel.
Team Xbox worked closely with TV manufacturers this time around in order to maximize the potential of this generation.
And people play battlefield games for years I been playing bad company 2 games for the last 2 months still lots of games you can join.
This is a good thing. Higher FPS is a game changer. They are offering this FPS boost to titles from many publishers at this point, hopefully more publishers give Microsoft the go ahead to offer FPS boost to their games as well. Ubisoft, and Rockstar would be fantastic additions.
I wouldn't call this a game changer. Especially, since a lot of people don't have the TV to get to 120 fps yet. But it is a very nice feature for those that have the capability in their TVs.
It would be nice if they also listed the resulting resolution of these games in "fps boost" since MS has said in many case it will be lower.
It's a gamechanger for those who do or are interested in a 120hz tv
My comment is mainly speaking about going 30 to 60. Anything else is just a bonus. To speak on resolution, I am firmly in the camp that I will take FPS over resolution. I recently played God of War, prior to the 4k update, and I honestly could not tell the difference while playing. The game still is one of the most visually amazing games I have played in recent times, and I was playing at 1080p on my LG CX. Perhaps if I compared screenshots I could tell. Responsiveness is king.
@Zeref For something to be a gamechanger it has to make a difference when you are buying an new console. I doubt that most people who buy PS consoles would say, "Hey, if I drop the highly rated exclusives, and buy an XB my old games get 120 fps so that is a good decision". Or Nintendo people saying, "Hey if I lose the portability of my console and Zelda/Mario games, I get 120 fps with XB so that is a good decision". I will agree this is a loyalty feature for XB owners. But, by no means is this a game changer.
Yes but lots of computer monitors that do which people use to game on even on consoles.
I can’t tel the difference from 60 to 120 FPS . I don’t play shooters competitively maybe it would mean something then but it really makes no difference to me if it’s 60 or 120
You clearly haven't played 120fps games. Playing a game at 120fps and then going back to 60fps literally makes you feel like theres something wrong with the game.
I just got a 144Hz display. I can count each frame up to 144 FPS.
I jus want max Payne 3 bc I wanna play that game again so bad
Same! Hoping R* might be doing something with it since they updated the PC version to have free DLC this week... MP3 back compat + MP4 reveal would be an awesome announcement.
I tried titanfall 2 with fbs boost just now, pretty sure it drops the resolution down to 1080p for the 120fps
That’s good with me.1080p/120hz is my sweet spot. I game on a high refresh rate 1080p monitor. But I totally understand the frustration if I gamed on a 4k 120hz oled.
Ah that's good, I'm on an lg cx oled so yeah the textures are a bit blurry, 1080p/ 1440p high refresh rate monitors are the sweet spot for this for sure.
I have a 165hrz IPS 1440P HDR 10 monitor it makes my 1080P 144hrz monitor look like standard definition when it comes to color, brightness, sharpness and detail the 1080P monitor just looks bad in comparison.
Yup, and it looks like ass. Runs smooth enough at 60fps and looks great without using the 120fps setting!
Ffs where's arkham knight.
Dang! That’s awesome! Wish I had a series x to play BFV. Been playing it on PS5 which runs smooth but a doubling of the refresh rate would be glorious! Hope Sony can off something like this in the future.
Couldn’t resist downloading Titanfall 2 again to check it out.
F**K yes. Love me some 120 fps.
Mirror's Edge All The Way !!!
Titanfall 2 at 120fps, uffff!
I wish my TV supported 120Hz... I wanna play Titanfall 2 in glorious 120 FPS
I'm definitely replaying Titanfall 2 at 120fps 💯
Titanfall 2 its already very fluid at 60fps!Im not trading the [email protected] for [email protected] especially when playing Campain SP. Actually i Will not trade the native resolution of those games at 60fps for a lower One at 120fps.Its not just the resolution that suffers watch the other games that support 120fps now and see that settings for textures,effects...are all lower now .120fps its ONLY good for MP competitive matchs since the quality of the image unfortunaly gets worst to achieave 120fps.
EA is 2nd party
EA Sports. It’s in the game
Made it to 120fps lol. Congrats, been there done that long ago 😂👍
Microsoft really shredding Sony in this regard! I expect this to be added on PS5 as well? EDIT: Hope it's not a Gamepass exclusive thing.
It is not a Gamepass exclusive thing, it simply is an Xbox thing (the BC team at Microsoft is able to go in on a game and update it without the need of any developer input). In other words, the PS5 will not be having this because it is not a patch.
Microsoft really acing this. Sony needs to up their game for sure!
True, we see that every single week Worldwide. You got another news on top that shows that. That show the reality of videogaming. i think The Series s/x sold 415k in one week., The switch 200 and the PS5 wasnt even able to sell 100k consoles Worldwide.. Gamer are really, really pumped with that and its shredding Sony. Its realy boosting forward.
Yeah and how many peorple have a tv that can put out 120fps??
WOOOOO! Mirrors Edge Catalyst 120!!!!!
