According to what was reported by the user Babu1993 among the pages of Reddit, important news could soon be unveiled from Microsoft regarding the backward compatibility of the new generation Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles.
The rumor Xbox Series X backward compatibility comes from what was declared by the YouTuber known as ElAnalistaDeBits (whose channel focuses on the technical analysis of video games and their performance on different hardware), according to which an announcement from Microsoft would be expected on February 17.
The tweet, translated into Italian, reads the following:
On February 17, Xbox fans are going to have some very interesting content on the channel. I can’t say more until that day. Thanks to Xbox for giving me early access so I can prepare my coverage in advance!
According to part of the user who commented, on Reddit, the post in question that gave rise to the rumor, the news could concern the possibility that Microsoft can implement a function for doubling the frame rate for those titles currently blocked at 30fps, without that this requires any kind of intervention by the developers.
A feature that would make both parties happy, because gamers could enjoy better performance for the games of older generations, and developers, who without dedicating even a minute to their previous works, could see them shine in a new light.
Before closing, we remind you that in mid-January rumors began to circulate about the possibility that Electronic Arts is developing exclusive titles for Microsoft’s next-generation consoles. Additionally, Microsoft recently said it is working to increase the production of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S to meet the great demand from Microsoft fans around the world.
