To prepare for the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X’s backwards compatibility, more than 500,000 hours of gameplay testing across four generations of Xbox were performed. Note that backward compatible games will run natively on both the Xbox Series X and S, utilizing the full power of the CPU, GPU and SSD.

Each title will also see significant reductions in load times through the use of the system’s custom NVME SSD. A new feature named Auto HDR, which adds HDR enhancements to games shipped with SDR, will also be included for these titles.Finally, the Xbox Series S and the Xbox Series X will feature 16x anisotropic filtering for nearly all backward compatible titles.

Both the Xbox Series S and the Xbox Series X will launch in North America on November 10, 2020.
