50 Cent: Blood on the Sand now works on Xbox Series X / S (75 other games do the same)

Join gamers online at GamesBeat Summit Next this coming 9-10. November. Learn more about what’s coming next.

Microsoft is expanding backward compatibility support on its Xbox consoles. It starts with a big drop of new… uh, old games to the support list for Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One.

Microsoft confirmed that each game it adds, which includes many from the original Xbox and Xbox 360, will have enhanced visual fidelity. This is especially true on the Xbox Series X and S.

Original Xbox games will run at 4 times their original resolution on the Xbox Series X and Xbox One X. In the meantime, the Xbox Series S will run them at 3 times the resolution. And Xbox One S and Xbox One will double the number of pixels.

In addition to the visual enhancements, Xbox also activates its FPS Boost technology in 26 games. This will increase the framerate of games like Gears of War, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and more.


Three top investment professionals open up on what it takes to get your video game funded.
