Xbox have announced today that a handful of fresh Xbox 360 titles coming to their backward compatibility program. Further, all four of these games have been updated with Xbox One X Enhanced compatibility meaning they’ll look nicer and run better on the higher end hardware.
The games to get the Enhanced treatment on Microsoft’s monster console are The Witcher II: Assassins of Kings, Crackdown, Forza Horion and Fable Anniversary. If you haven’t played any of those games before, give them a go, they’re all legitimately wonderful. The Witcher II‘s tutorial is a bit of a doozy though, watch out for that one.
Some may wonder why anyone would bother to update titles like these for hardware as powerful as the Xbox One X. It’s a question worth asking. There’s a lot of ways to look at it. Personally, my opinion is that if you’re willing to give me Crackdown in 4K and at 60fps, even though its 11 years old, I’d be pretty stoked to play that again.
Still, it hasn’t stopped Twitter from making with the jokes.
My Xbox one X is the best Xbox 360 I’ve ever owned

True enough, @KravenGod. True enough.
