    I figured we needed one mega thread for prior generation games running on next-generation hardware.

    XBSX/S

    I've seen videos showing off the incredubly fast loading speed of GTA V on Series X, but none showing speed of character switching during free roam (essentially equivalent to fast travel). I'm surprised nobody thought of testing that...

    I don't have one, so I can't do any testing, but I'm still waiting for XSX to face the Xbox family's Arch-Nemesis: Saint's Row 2.
    Can it beat single digits in the boat race? None have yet.

    Really annoying! Both were absolute gems but seemingly forgotten by the general population.

    I've been meaning to download it at some point (it's on GamePass). Maybe I will just for you guys. :)

    Both great but Nioh 2 is really amazing.

    This is pretty great.
    I don't have the console version, so I didn't realize Xbox mods had this kind of access to the game. Now that MS owns Bethesda, they should see if they can free up a coder to implement an official patch for the game, including the X1X version.

    I don't think porting Skyrim to new hardware has ever been Bethesda's problem, stopping porting Skyrim to new hardware definitely is! :wink:

    They're both running the One X and PS4 Pro versions, which AFAIK are very different.

    I wish Rockstar would at least patch the game to unlock the framerate to 60FPS.

    Did I hear somewhere that they were going to patch it?
    Maybe someone can confirm if I'm remembering correctly.

    Well, guess that explains it then.

    Maybe I was thinking of GTA5 or RDR2 online standone thingy.

    Both GTA V and RDR2 could be with minor patches to unlock frame rate on nextgen consoles but that wouldn't necessarily be profitable. Not if the plan to to offer a moderately-priced upgrade. Take Two were moot on their support of free upgrades once things like SmartDelivery were announced.

    Ah fair enough, I didn't realise it was another full port of GTA V - I saw the initial announcement of nextgenm GTA Online. I have to admit I've disappointed with GTA V on a third console generation. This just feels lazy, a bit like endless Skyrim ports. I get GTA V and Skyrim were pretty compromised on 360/PS3 generation consoles but do we need to many ports? I'd really rather that spent engineering effort making their next generation of games better.
