I think it'll be 1080/60 if they do it like Fallout 4/76 (which to be fair are pretty locked 60 and it is optional - personally ill take the framerate over resolution)

Yeah that seems the most likely course

This game on the OG XB1 is an experience. The game rarely hits 30fps a lot of the time.

It's still excellent, especially playing as Emily, but this is one of the titles I'm looking forward to revisiting when I get a Series X. A more stable framerate would drastically change my experience with it.

I’m having a great time with Dishonoured, but I can only imagine what a slog it must have been with the original load times. The amount of games that would feel “next gen” with just FPS boost and improved load times is huge.

Yeah, totally get that.

There are no big jumps like to 3D between gens any more, but this just feels like I couldn't go back. Hard to understand till you've tried it.

To be fair Dishonored’s load times differences are a huge leap over previous gen, it’s probably the only game I’ve played that has such a vast change. Wasteland 3 has really long load times that have remained even on the SSD.

Yeah getting a PS4 after being PC only since around 2010 was a real eye opener for me in terms of how the last gen really suffered on console. The load times are absolutely ridiculous on pretty much every game

Still no new BC games announced.

Ooh nice! I was getting a bit of a hankering to play Banjo and this might be a good way of doing it! :D
