Celebrate the launch of the new Xbox One X with Microsoft Store
the Xbox One X is an incredible backward-compatibility machine. All Xbox One consoles can now play current-gen games as well as select software from the Xbox 360 and the original Xbox. But the Xbox One X actually enhances many of these games.
For example, the Xbox 360 shooter Halo 3 looks incredible on the Xbox One X.
The game renders at a higher resolution with nine times as many pixels as its Xbox 360 version.
