We already knew that roughly 150 Xbox One games will be enhanced for the Xbox One X, but as it turns out, four Xbox 360 titles will also be enhanced too, these being Assassin's Creed, Fallout 3, Halo 3, and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

We're talking about fairly massive improvements, with 10-bit colour depth instead of the 8-bits with Xbox 360 and nine times as many rendered pixels as the originals. Expect a whole lot better picture quality, then. As we reported earlier this month, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said they added some major surprises regarding the backwards compatibility, and this is likely it.

Take a look at the two videos below to see how big of a difference these changes actually make to an already beautiful game like Halo 3. Is Halo 3 the Xbox 360 game you're most looking forward to playing on the Xbox One X? If not, what is?

REVIEW. Written by Mike Holmes

"It's a great sci-fi adventure that has stood the test of time with good grace, ported capably to PC as part of an unmissable collection."
