A few games of Xbox 360 have received updates during the weekend, shortly before the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of Xbox. The event will be held this afternoon, at 6:00 p.m.; These updates may be related to retraction, perhaps to make games compatible with some improvements offered by Xbox Series X, such as FPS Boost.
Among the games in question there are a bit of everything: from Bethesda titles, now owned by Microsoft (Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas or The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion), up to several classics of the best era of Electronic Arts, such as Dead Space, Dead Space 3, Dragon Age Origins or Dragon Age 2. Fable Anniversary, Fable 3, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Sonic Generations or the first BACKSIDES have also registered movement; It is not known with certainty exactly how many games have been updated.
They are already returocompatible games, and in some cases there are already improvements (Sonic Generations load faster, for example), but the number of updates published at the same time seems to suggest that there is something more behind.
In addition, many other games of the original Xbox have reappeared at the Microsoft digital store, listed again and in some cases even with prices. This is the case of the first three Dead or Alive, Max Payne and its sequel, Munch s Odyssey (registered and remastered on several occasions), Manhunt, Red Dead Revolver, Merrillville, Star Wars Clone Wars and Star Wars Episode III. These reappearances have not been unnoticed by the community either, which speculates with the possibility that they are, these yes, new additions to the retrocompatible catalog.
None of these sounds particularly crazy if we think about the emphasis of today s event in the history of Xbox (Microsoft s first console was launched in the United States on November 15, 2001, just twenty years ago) and on the importance of retraction In Xbox Series X and S. If perhaps, maybe something more evidence and consistency in the biocompatible editorialization, surely the pending subject of all large video game companies; We ll see what the event this afternoon holds us.
