The rest of the titles loaded faster on the Series X, some of them by as large of a factor as 4x.

    WDL works just fine on the One X. You simply get a warning that the online connection has been lost when u quick resume but you simply back out right into the game where u left off. It’s just like when you get a warning when your controller dies mid game. There is no return to the main menu and no further loading necessary. It just an extra button push.

    Maybe the XSX version requires additional work or something.

    Is there an easy way to check all the digital titles you own on Xbox? Yesterday I remembered that back in the 360 days I had Braid and Shadow Complex bought from the Live Arcade and sure enough I could download them to Series X, and at least Braid is working fine. What an awesome game BTW! I haven't tried Shadow Complex yet, but remember that game quite fondly as well. I'm not sure If I have more games bought digitally back then and would like to check.

    Go to 'My Games and apps', go down to 'Full Library', and then click on 'All owned games'.

    Thank god MS implemented that because when I installed my Series X, I totally forgot what games I had on the internal HDD on the One X and I didn't want to plug it back in to check. It also reminded me that I had a bunch of old 360 games that I don't remember buying like Borderlands 2 lol.

    I've just started playing the co-op campaign with my son. We played the intro split screen and then switched to online co-op with me on the XSX and my son on the X One. So far so good, but we're on MCC. I'll try to remember to try actual 2001 CE.

    Halo CE has never been added to the BC library.
    Only Anniversary (which is what was included in MCC)

    Slight correction: Halo CE is available through the 360's backwards compatibility program. No enhancements there, of course.

    Any downgrades? One of the sore points with all of the non-OG Xbox Halo releases (this includes the original PC release from Gearbox) was simplifications in the art, bump mapping missing, lighting simplification, etc. They still haven't resolved this in H:A or MCC. That being said, I don't know if the backwards compat version has these problems, either.

    For Halo CE on X360? No, I don't think so. It's still the original version, unlike PC or Anniversary editions. All OG games on 360 are the original code, so nothing is technically downgraded.
    However, there are frequently glitches and performance problems (although not in Halo CE).
    Here's a list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360

    Downloaded Control on XBSX with Game Pass yesterday. Remedy games usually peak my interest so I was excited to try this one. Honestly super impressed with this game so far. The ability to interact and destroy so many objects in the game is super cool. Obviously this is a last gen game but it really doesn't feel like it. Hoping we get more titles like this on current gen where CPU's aren't such a weak point for consoles anymore. Graphically the game is impressive as well but it made me realize how so many other games could really benefit from the ability to better interact with objects.

    I wonder if the game Control will still be on GamePass when the Ultimate Edition releases. If so, will the GamePass version be upgraded to Optimized for Seriex X|S or remain as the normal edition, thus being forced to run through Backwards Compatibility mode. Previously there was plenty of noise about them only offering next-gen optimizations if you bought the Ultimate Edition which includes new DLCs.

    Latest News Link on it from https://www.techradar.com/news/reme...game-pass-as-xbox-series-x-upgrade-is-delayed

    They really messed up with the upgrade path for this one. I'm pretty lucky, as I played and completed the main campaign during a 1 week trial of PSNow, and I'll be buying the Ultimate Edition so I can play all of the DLC's (as well as, hopefully, kill a couple of optional bosses.)

    It's a shame it got all of this flack from the upgrade situation, as it's a fantastic game: perfect presentation; moody, mysterious atmosphere; exciting, fun gameplay; solid writing. Everything's a high note. Except for the fuck-up-grade.

    They should just let people buy a ~$10 next gen upgrade patch if they really want to charge for it. Leave the Ultimate Edition as a free upgrade, but let owners of any other permutation buy access.

    But I don't know, maybe there's some strangeness in how the new generation version and its content are structured and intertwined or something. I just know I'll be buying that Ultimate Edition soon.

    I also bought it. And I am not going to get an XSX for a while.. How well does it play on XBOX One S? Should I just wait it out until sometime next year? I'ts not like I play games in general but I could not resist and I am a huge fan of Remedy since original Max Payne.

    If I remember correctly, it struggled a fair bit on the base consoles, so, if you can hold off for a while, I think you'll get the most impact from playing it on your future XSX at either 4K60 or whatever resolution and framerate they go with for RT.

    But if you can't wait, you'll still have fun.

    But try to wait though.

    Not great. Later patches helped some. I’d wait if you can, but it can’t hurt to give it a shot now. The first hour should be fine (if low-res). The framerate drops in large, chaotic fights later in the game.

    Wow! You just taught me something really nice as well! Thank you bro.
    I remember I got the Xbox One X but could never find my old X360 titles that I bought them online. Now with the Series X and downloading back some Xbox one games, you just made my Queue jump from 2 to 15! Glorious x360 days!
