Microsoft announces new 'frame-doubling' technique for backward compatible Xbox games”

According to Lo and Xbox, cloud saves will "soon be free to all Xbox 360 users", enabling you to upload your Xbox 360 game saves to the cloud without needing to have an Xbox Live membership.

Microsoft reiterated that your digital library of Xbox games will appear upon signing into the Xbox Series X or S, and compatible discs from the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and original Xbox will work on the Xbox Series X. Additionally, if you have games installed on an external drive, you can plug it into your new Xbox to access those titles.

The good news is that existing owners can upgrade to the next-generation version of Borderlands 3 for free.

You probably won't find deals on next generation game consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S. But there will likely be tons of discounts on their predecessors, the PS4 and Xbox One. Also, since Auto HDR is enabled by the console's hardware, there is absolutely no performance cost to the CPU, GPU or memory and there is no additional latency added ensuring you receive the ultimate gaming experience. On Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, 16x anisotropic filtering has been enabled for almost all backward compatible titles so you can experience the very best visuals the games have to offer. All save files from the current generation's systems will work with the next gen models.

Borderlands 3 has been fully optimized to take advantage of the next-gen consoles' processing power, bringing a new level of graphical fidelity to the Borderlands universe.

Naturally, this can't be applied to every game-for example, those for which the game's physics are intrinsicly tied to framerate-but gives the example of Fallout 4 which goes from 30 frames per second to 60FPS on the Xbox Series S and shows off this new framerate in the video which you can see below.

Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launch on 10th November 2020. Currently, you can play split-screen with two people locally. And yes, that will apply to single-player and online co-op. PS5 and Xbox Series X players will also have that option. The next-gen upgrade for Borderlands 3 will be available for Xbox Series X|S on November 10th.
