Find answers to help make the most of the Xbox One X and all it has to offer.

Yes, all Xbox One games (including Xbox One Backward Compatible titles10), Xbox Game Pass8 subscriptions, and accessories will work with an Xbox One X. In fact, with the increased power of Xbox One X, many games will achieve more consistent framerates, faster load times, improved anisotropic filtering, and will run at their peak resolution if the title features dynamic scaling.


No. The power provided by the Xbox One X allows developers to use techniques like super-sampling, anisotropic filtering and others to produce a better 1080p image. Additionally, games will have the ability to run at higher framerates and with faster load times.1


Supersampling is a technique game developers can use to improve graphical fidelity. By utilising the additional power of the Xbox One X, developers can process images at a higher resolution and then scale them down to fit the display resolution that the player is using. Super-sampled images reduce aliasing (commonly referred to as "jaggies") and generally look "cleaner" to the naked eye compared to a non-super-sampled images at the same resolution.


All Xbox One accessories (controllers, headsets, chatpads, remotes, etc.) will work with Xbox One X. Kinect for Xbox One is also compatible with Xbox One X via the Xbox Kinect Adapter (sold separately).


No. There will be one version of all games and they will work on all Xbox One consoles.


If a game has the Xbox One X Enhanced icon, this means developers have worked to improve an existing title, or have implemented the most recent developer tools to take full advantage of the power of Xbox One X.

  • In addition to calling out which games are Xbox One X Enhanced, we'll also be indicating which games will play at 4K Ultra HD and with support for High Dynamic Range (HDR).4
  • 4K Ultra HD: 4K Ultra HD games must achieve a 2160p frame buffer output via native 4K or using advanced rendering techniques such as checkerboarding or dynamic resolution scaling.
  • HDR: HDR Games support the HDR10 standard.
  • Xbox One X Enhanced: A developer had done special work to take advantage of 6 teraflops of power in Xbox One X. Enhanced features will vary by game.



  • Any Xbox One stores your game saves and account information in the cloud, so when you buy a new Xbox One console, all you have to do is log in with your existing account and re-download any games or apps you’d like. All your progress, achievements, friends and profiles will move seamlessly to your new Xbox One X (or S). If you use an external hard drive, the process is even easier and will save you the download time—simply move your games and apps from the internal hard drive of your old Xbox One to the external drive, then plug it in to your new Xbox One X.


    Yes. No other video game console has ever had 6 teraflops of graphic processing power.


    FLOPS is an acronym for floating-point operations per second. Tera means 1 trillion. So, Xbox One X can perform 6 trillion floating-point operations per second. That's rendering graphics, making game physics behave and things like that. The short version is: games play better on Xbox One X because it "thinks" really, really fast.
