Microsoft has, in its plan, to automatically add support to those games played on the soon–to–hit the market Xbox Series x console. The existing games will be better on the new console. However, Microsoft is currently working on adding HDR support and improve some of the games from the 30fps frame rate to 60fps, or 60fps to 120fps.
Jason Roland, from the Xbox platform team, stated: “In partnership with the Xbox Advanced Technology Group, Xbox Series X delivers a new, innovative HDR reconstruction technique which enables the platform to automatically add HDR support to games. As this technique is handled by the platform itself, it allows us to enable HDR with zero impact to the game’s performance, and we can also apply it to Xbox 360, and original Xbox titles developed almost 20 years ago, well before the existence of HDR.”
Ronald doesn’t really explain how Microsoft will add HDR to the games that already exist, but the company has managed to add this kind of support to older games, such as Mirror’s Edge on the Xbox One X. This new technique is applied at the platform level which means that it requires no work from the developers. The company may actually be processing games in HDR, just how Apple forced its own 4K content into 4K HDR. When it came to the Apple TV 4K.
Microsoft also wants to improve some of the older games will run on Xbox Series X. The game has invented new techniques that will enable even more titles to run at higher resolutions. But don’t worry because it won’t mess up with the original vision of the creators. And they are also creating a new technique to double the frame rate of a set of titles from 30fps to 60fps or 60fps to 120fps.
