You Can Now Play Xbox One Games on Xbox Series S

The newest gaming system in the market is the Xbox Series S from Microsoft. For a price of $299, the Xbox Series S sure offers a lot of next-gen performance. But this begs the question- where do we find the Xbox One X amidst this? Microsoft mentioned that the Xbox One- which has been targeting the 4K display since 2017 would still have a couple of advantages over the Xbox Series S. More so when it comes to running games that are Xbox One Z- enhanced. 

Xbox Series S vs Xbox One X

VGC brings up a statement from Microsoft where they have declared that the Xbox Series S exists to help users play next-gen games at a refresh rate of 60fps at 1440p resolution. In an effort to run the highest quality of backwards compatible games, the Xbox Series S would start utilizing the Xbox One S version of compatible games. They would do so by improving the filtered textures, and bringing out much more consistent frame rates. They might also be implementing Auto HDR amongst others.

This simply means that most of the games that Xbox One runs will actually work on the Xbox Series S. Although the resolution will be a bit decreased, you will have several developments to make your experience worthwhile like a faster SSD. Considering the price of the Xbox One, the GPU will obviously help games that have unlocked frame rates. Yet, for this price, the Xbox Series S does score pretty high. 

Xbox Series S Can Run Most of the Next-Gen Games at a Very Affordable Price

There is a huge chance that most of the current-gen games would receive several updates that would help them run on the Xbox Series S. This includes games like Gears 5 or Forza Horizon 4. Unfortunately, without a patch, the game will simply be running on an Xbox One S version. According to VGC, this is pretty much the case for most of the back-ward compatible Xbox 360 games.

If you are wondering why did the developers go through so much trouble, then the answer is pretty straight-forward. The Xbox One X has been designed to provide users with the ultimate gaming experience- 4k display. This is exactly why they have a much more powerful GPU than the rest of the Xbox series. On the other hand, the Xbox Series S is built around the agenda of providing a lot more at a cheap rate. If you are an amateur, or a newbie, then the best thing would be a Xbox Series S- simply because it will run most of the next-gen games at a solid resolution of 1440p. Also, the SSD and the CPU is much faster for the Xbox Series S.
