I'd bought Watch Dogs 2 on PS4 as I'd read there was a Pro patch, but no One X patch. Now I'm torn. I didn't think I was a 60 fps snob but the last few months I've really started to notice the drop to 30.

Live for all games now.

In some instances, because there are higher graphics requirements to enable FPS Boost technology, we’ve had to reduce a game’s resolution to ensure it both runs smoothly and plays great. In those select cases, such as Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 in this latest title announcement, FPS Boost is not automatically enabled for Xbox Series X gamers. For all titles receiving this update, gamers will see a clear indicator if a title is running FPS Boost.

Think I will give Dishonored a bash when I have cleared some of my current backlog (including Sniper Elite 4, which is completely transformed for me by FPS boost).

Every time there's a new post in this thread I get excited, and then it's just some boring gooseberry fool about frame rate. :(

I'm not sure a game that glitches within the first few minutes of starting it needs a frame boost. I've played around an hour of Fallout 4 and hit 3 different issues, none of which were down to the performance.

Glad I’m not the only one who seemingly doesn’t care about FPS. Can’t say if I’ve ever been able to tell what FPS rate I’m seeing

Binary Domain with frame boost would be amazing. I would play that straight away.

Prey and Dishonored on Series X|S: FPS Boost isn't just about 60fps

The games play better and loading time reductions are a revelation.

Definitely my 'type' of game. Can't believe how underrated Prey is. Although I do find them a little difficult to get into for some reason.

Yep Prey was my game of 2017, and when you consider some of the other games released that year it's a pretty impressive achievement!

So Dishonored on Series X is French language only? Sacre bleu!
