Sony Playstation 5 :
Microsoft launched a function this week to Xbox Series X / S call FPS Boost which, as its name suggests, considerably improves the performance of certain games of Xbox One when we play them on the company’s next-generation consoles.
In fact, There are already five games that take advantage of this advantage, which is done from the Xbox Series X / S backward compatibility system. without requiring changes to the code of the original games: Far Cry 4, New Super Lucky’s Tale, Sniper Elite 4, UFC 4 and Watch Dogs 2.
The reason why FPS Boost is not compatible with all games
Nevertheless, Jason Ronald from Xbox wanted to clarify in Major Nelson’s latest podcast that this feature will not be possible to implement in all gamesSince there are many titles that were programmed to work in a specific way at their original frame rate, so increasing it could lead to problems of all kinds, such as animations or physics that work at twice their normal speed.
That s, this does not mean that the list of games compatible with FPS Boost is going to remain only in the six that are already available, because Ronald also assures that they are already testing a good number of titles that will be added over the next few months..
We also take the opportunity to remind you that This new feature of the console only affects the performance of games, so don’t expect improvements in its resolution or anything similar. As an existing example of its operation, thanks to FPS Boost we can enjoy New Super Lucky’s Tale a on Xbox Series X / S 120 fps, as long as we have a television compatible with this rate of images per second.
