I would prefer the Xbone as in theory with better specs it would run 360 games at least with better framerate (or more stable framerate) and better loading times. Also thought it would have some kind of upscaling to 1080p.

But yeah it seems the Xbox X versions would be much much better. But again... would be way more expensive and maybe it would be easier to buy an used pc haha

Maybe just wait and buy next gen console? It won't be much more expensive than Xbox One X is now and it will have 4K 360 games, it will be worth it and it will serve you until 2027.

Really? all 360 games will be enhanced on the new xbox?

Not all, but most are 4K on Xbox One X and that will translate to the new Xbox, they won't be 720p like OG One.

Same goes for PS5, PS4 backwards compatible games won't be 1080p like base PS4 but 1440p and 4K checkerboard so for example you will get to play Outer Worlds in 1440p on PS5 not 1080p.



At the start with the x360 bc some games run worse but it has become a rarity and I believe all games are improved.






All I heard in VGC is that the BC for X1 is very good and give great boost in performance/graphics.

I don't have much direct experience with BC in XBone. But, my understanding is that most games do see a performance boost. But, no games run at a higher resolution unless they were specifically upgraded to do so, and the ones that were upgraded were only upgraded for XB1X. So, on a low cost X1 you won't get that resolution.

One game from your list that I can comment on directly - RDR. I never played it on 360, so I can't give you a comparison. But, on XBone it did run very well in general. It was one of the few BC games I played, and I recall that I was impressed with how well it ran.

With that said, since MS has said that new games will be XBone compatible for a couple years, and because you want to play Halo games, why not buy and XBX? You'll be able to play all of the Halos in their upgraded glory, and play Infinite. You'll also get the benefit of being able to play the other MS exclusives that you've missed. Even if there aren't that many, when you add that to the great enhanced BC, and the excellent Halo experiences, it's probably worth the $225ish you'd pay for a used X right now.

As a huge Destiny fan myself, I can tell you that Halo games are must-play. They have nothing to do with Destiny, and they're quite different games. But, that excellent Destiny gunplay comes from Halo. If you've never played them, you're missing out. Personally, I own all platforms.  But, Halo tends to keep me as XB first, because I don't ever want to miss playing one.

Thanks that was very informative. I believe the X might be the best option since it will allow me to play all those enhanced versions plus everything released from here till next generation with more quality, plus those backlog games and what else microsoft puts out for a couple of years. Only problem is cost since I will definitely pick up the PS5 in December.

With MS saying they will be crossgen for at least 2 years then you also have a very good quality to play some exclusives in the period. Considering the release of the new machines, perhaps you can find a good deal on X1X.

Yes. Im finding some deals for used ones for around £220-250 on ebay, I believe this may be the best option then. 

Also will allow me to play Cyberpunk properly as on ps4 xbone Im almost certain we will have performance issues.



The games will run at their original resolution and framerate that they were designed for which for most games was 720p 30FPS.

However they will reach their framerate target much more often thanks to the increase in power. If a game targeted 60FPS but could only reach 40-45FPS most of the time, it will pretty much run at 60FPS on the One. Sadly dynamic resolution wasn't really a thing during 7th gen. Otherwise we probably could've seen them run at 1080p on the One (or at least on the X).

Speaking about X there are a couple of games that are enhanced for the Xbox One X.

Out of the ones you mentioned, Fallout 3, Portal 2, Red Dead Redemption and Halo 3 are X enhanced. However there's no need to get the 360 version of Halo games when you can just play Halo MCC.

Currently the BC team is working on the Series X but it's pretty much confirmed they will add more 360 (and original Xbox) games once the system has launched, so it's likely we get to see more enhanced 360 games.
