Xbox has continued their trend of slowly drip feeding next gen details. This time they are re-clarifying details about Xbox Series X optimization.
“Optimized for Xbox Series X is the indicator for games that take advantage of the full power of Xbox Series X. Since Xbox Series X offers developers unparalleled power and speed, this empowers them to create the experiences they want and embrace a range of features and capabilities based on what is best for their individual titles. When you hear a game has been Optimized for Xbox Series X, you’ll know that the developer has either natively designed or fully rebuilt their game to take full advantage of the unique capabilities of our most powerful console ever.”
“Games featuring the Optimized for Xbox Series X badge can showcase anything from virtually eliminating load times via the Xbox Velocity Architecture, heightened visuals and hardware-accelerated DirectX raytracing powered by our custom, next generation GPU, to steadier and often higher framerates up to 120fps.”
It is very smart marketing for Xbox to continually hammer the point that their next gen console will fully take advantage of the hardware inside the box. There has been some concern that the Series X may be held back due to cross gen support, but Xbox clearly wants everyone to know that the Series X will deliver the best games possible.
