If you've been playing Xbox One, you have probably seen that some titles are "Optimized for Xbox One X", something that means higher resolution support. But as you might know - being an avid Gamereactor reader and all - Microsoft also has a label called "Optimized for Xbox Series X". But what does this mean?

Now Microsoft has offered an explanation and a video on Xbox Wire that does clear some things up, such as that it targets 60 frames per second:

"Optimized for Xbox Series X is the indicator for games that take advantage of the full power of Xbox Series X. Since Xbox Series X offers developers unparalleled power and speed, this empowers them to create the experiences they want and embrace a range of features and capabilities based on what is best for their individual titles.

Games that have been Optimized for Xbox Series X use the power of the new console to deliver higher, steadier framerates, with a performance target of 60 frames per second at 4K resolution. Some games will even be able to support framerates up to 120 fps or variable refresh rates"

There was also a list of confirmed optimised titles. Find the detailed video and the list below.
