4K Xbox 360 Games Tested on Xbox One X! Halo 3, Gears 3, Fallout 3, Assassin's Creed + More

Microsoft is enhancing Xbox 360 games to run at 4K on the X – but what resolutions are you actually getting, how well do they run, and what are the drawbacks, if any? Rich takes a look at all seven X-enhanced 360 titles, plus you get a quick look at how Xbox One X handles Grand Theft Auto 4!

  1. I kind of want DF to do a frame rate analysis on Sonic unleashed and compare the difference back compat versions with the original 360 version

  2. Was Fallout 3 updated to run better on the Xbox One S? Because it runs better in this video than it did in their fallout 3 backward compatibility video.

  3. Been wanting to upgrade from my S to an X for a while now. Going to finally do it this next payday. I'm excited, and with my XBOne and 360 catalog, I'll have plenty of incredible games to play in 2160p. 🙂

  4. I actually never played Halo Reach (I love Halo!), Halo 3 ODST, Gears of War 2 and 3 (the last one looks good on Xbox One X), Red Dead Redemption. It's nice I don't need an additional console to try those.

  5. I was going to get PS4 Pro but I aint no dumbass. Xbox One X is fucking awesome. If you prefer PS4 Pro you probably play Fortnite and that's it.

  6. we are still waiing for you to review the excellent massive Xbox one enhanced Patch bringed to the Masterchief collection , i'm surprised you didn't analysed it yet .. so much faster and better overall

  7. STEAM and digital games is total garbage nonsence awful anti consumer BULLCRAP! Physical media ALL DAY LONG 💿💿💿💿💿💿💿💿💿💿💿💿💿💿💿💿

  8. Guy : Xbox is cool


  9. 25-30 fps lock on old 360 games playing Xbox one X? no thanks I'll just build a PC. even A Ryzen APU can do way better than that

  10. This is cool its kind of like running an emulator on your PC where you can adjust the native resolution. Not nearly as flexible, but nice to see this for original 360 titles that have not been re-released.

  11. The only games that are not available are The Darkness 1, Armored Core 4 and Armored Core 4: Answer. I want them to be available for Xbox one.

  12. But still Rumble Roses, Lollipop chainsaw, Bayonetta, Onechanbara, Infinite Undiscovery, DOA4 .. No BW compatibility…😔

  13. I find the 360 Emulator to be a great feature. The big issue is the drastically increased input delay I find occurring across multiple games.

  14. Старые игры на новой консоли работают лучше чем на старой. "Изумительно"…

  15. Finally Microsoft…it is time I guess for Sony to start making some movements. Until now ps4 marketing was all about Xbox failure.

  16. Should i replay gears 3 and halo 3 ?? I have an xbox x but on a 1080p screen so maybe its a waste of time to replay these games
