As of February 17th, owners of the Xbox series X and Series S can now enjoy a selection of older games at up to four times the framerate. 

Games that were previously locked at 30 frames per second can now hit a smooth 60fps thanks to Microsoft’s new FPS Boost feature with some can even hitting 120fps. 

For those of you who are unsure of what this means, the higher the framerates the smoother and more responsive the games become. 

The end result is a far more immersive gameplay experience.
