Over the past few weeks many users have had issues with backwards compatible titles on the Xbox One. Games like Halo Reach, Fable 2, Gears of War 3 and plenty more had performance hindering issues that pretty much left the games in an unplayable state. I tried Gears of War 3 for myself when I got the code and was immediately bogged down with a low framerate.
According to reports coming in from Twitter and Reddit, it sounds like Microsoft has finally released an update for the Xbox 360 emulator that fixes most if not all of the performance issues the backwards compatible titles were encountering. Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts was almost completely unplayable according to a user on Reddit but after the patch the game, is in good standing. The user uploaded a video to share the results which you can view at the source link..
I tested Gears of War 3 before writing up this report and it seems to be running better now. I don’t own a copy of Halo Reach at the moment, which was another game that was said to be rendered unplayable but according to reports, it has been fixed, and graphical features like anti-aliasing have been restored.
Have you tried any backwards compatible titles today? Let us know if they’re working better for you now in the comments section. I have footage uploading now for Gears of War 3, will add to the story as soon as it is rendered.
