    1080p performance modes may actually push me to buy a One X. I'm not getting a 4k tv any time soon, and I prefer 60fps to 4k anyway.

    General posts talking about benefits of Backwards Compatibility were moved into this thread talking about general use of it (seemed a little bit more appropriate and related): https://forum.beyond3d.com/threads/utility-of-backwards-compatibility.60158


    A lot of posts have been moved into the Xbox One Backwards compatability thread: https://forum.beyond3d.com/threads/xbox-one-backwards-compatibility-bc-e3-2015-xo.56984/

    Theres also been a few additional news bits talked about in the Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility thread: https://forum.beyond3d.com/threads/microsoft-original-xbox-backwards-compatibility-spawn.60178/

    Gears 4 enhanced for 1X just updated on my Xbox. So it was the thing that made my HDD explode while it was on standby lol. Approximately same size as the PC variant, about 95GB

    I don't see why there needs to be two separate threads for Xbox One backwards compatibility...just get rid of the Original Xbox BC thread imo...

    yea it may make sense to merge them, OG XB BC titles are few and far between, at least compared to the number of 360 BC titles.

    heh, while they can technically do it. I see a lot of issues with licensing when titles are that old.
    Would love to be wrong, but 15+ years ago is going to be tough thing to dig up.

    I was kinda surprised by 13 games being announced. I wan't even sure there was going to be that many over time in total...Who knows how many more there will be but they're off to a good start imo. If they get some of the other big games from OG Xbox (Splinter Cell, Mechassault, Project Gotham Racing, Amped) then they I'd be OK with what they have released.

    I know this might only be surface beauty, but damn the Xbox One X packs so much into such a tiny box. Here's a look without any "tricks"

    Don’t forget the wide angle concept of the PS4’s final form:

    I prefer lines of the S (maybe it's just white, non-Nintendo consoles look good in white) for some reason but you have to hand it to Microsoft for building a console with 4x the performance in what is essentially the same sized box.

    I really don't need a X as I have a decent PC hooked up to my TV but I'm hating managing it. I thought I could get Windows/Steam somewhere approximate to the console controller-only experience but with Steam updates, Windows 10 being a car-crash UI-wise, some games insisting on popping open a UI window before the game loads, I've never been more compelled to buy an Xbox. :yep2: I also retired a bunch of boxes from my A/V cabinet so there is space.... :runaway:

    About that I think it's going to be more interesting (and fair) to compare XBX power consumption, heat and noise with the new iteration of Pro, the CUH-7100 that is the Monster Hunter LE model and the black models currently sold in Japan.

    I've yet to find any mention of any measure of the CUH-7100's noise and power consumption.

    I expected to find something about its noise level by this point because that's easily measured.
