I really hope PlatinumGames patches the Switch version of the game so that we could run the game at 720p in docked mode. I care more about performance than 1080p.
I wouldn't expect it
I'm pretty sure that's from system wide emulation and they just individually play/test each title for adjustments. Not the same as porting an individual games code.
There's no doubt that this is a lazy port though
That is the joke, that the emulation with smart delivery that updates res and fps across the board have a better effect than an individual port one.
I've read a few things about what people think Smart Delivery is here on VGC and I don't think people are fully understanding the concept.
Smart Delivery means you can buy any one version you like (Xbox One or Series X) but you're able to play that game on either console as the console will decide what version to download. Smart Delivery therefore has nothing to do with emulation or graphics.
I think you're talking about the enhancements of emulated games like OG Xbox and 360 games on Xbox One. There might be similar enhancements of BC games on Series X but we don't know any details. These enhancements happen automatically due to the way the emulator works.
What we do know is that some future BC games will receive an Series X enhancement update much like the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro did. Comparable to 360 BC games that saw 4k patches on Xbox One X. These updates will be optimized to get the most out of the new console. However, there are still Xbox One games!
