Xbox also announced that alongside the addition of these new Enhanced Xbox 360 titles they will be releasing a new graphics setting on Xbox One X to give you more control over your Backwards gaming experience. The power of Xbox One X enables the Xbox 360 emulator to showcase the very best version of the game possible all without touching the games base code. The addition of this new graphics setting means that when you play Enhanced Xbox 360 games on Xbox One X, you can now choose how to experience them, be it with enhanced graphics or in their original form. Enhanced graphics will be turned on by default, running your game with the higher resolution, however if you turn off the graphics setting, the graphics will be comparable to the experience on Xbox One or Xbox One S.
Here’s how to access these new settings. (Note, once you change the settings, you’ll need to restart your game).
- Press “View” and “Menu” buttons on the controller to pull up the Xbox 360 guide
- Navigate to “Settings” blade
- Select “Xbox One X Settings”
- Select to optimize for “Graphics” or “Performance”
