NGB officially confirmed for backwards compatibility for the Xbox One

Post by DoctorCress » Mon Oct 23, 2017 8:29 pm

Haven't seen anyone post this yet, but NGB has been officially confirmed for backwards compatibility for the Xbox One.

http://uk.ign.com/articles/2017/10/23/f ... patibility

Apparently it plays at 1080p, 60fps and 16:9, which is very cool. And for those buying the X - it's native 4k

EDIT: Done some more research, and I believe it's 960p on the XB1 and S. It's 1920p on the X1X.



KOTOR also got a noticeably large improvement in terms of visuals



so I imagine Black looking even better.

Either way, I hope this boosts the popularity of the game - r/XboxOne has quite a few threads mentioning it, which is only a good thing! :biggrin:

Thanks for the post, bra (I can't say 'bro' it makes me sound even daft-er). I'm soo happy about this!

And I hear the old duke controller is making a comeback, too. Even though things are quiet right now.

I wonder if this will awaken Sneh? I hope some of the old members come back, I'm missing the crap out of them. :picard: (Not crying)

So think they include the original Xbox One in with the S or am I just getting 480p? Or no compatibility >_>

Cool, let's hope this makes more people get into Ninja Gaiden, and action games.

Right now I don't really care about the Xbone, or the PS4 for that matter, so it doesn't really do much to me.

Xbox One is pretty much synonymous with the S in most respects (including this one).

So we'll be getting 1080p.

Awesome, thanks. It'll be great to play NGB with the Xbone controller :silly2:

I am totally not buying an Xbox One X just to play NGB at 4K :bolt:

*orders one on amazon*

I tried :shrug:

This is fantastic news though. Really hoping it bringsd more people into the field. Hopefully all these young guns will give it a whirl, get stomped by Murai and then find joy in getting better and better.

So on a regular XB1, it plays at 1080p whereas on the original xbox it was 480p?
Never played NGB on the original XBox, so i don't know if the quality is the same for that and the Xbox 360.

Or, IMO, 99% they'll bitch and moan about the game being bullshit and broken and never look at it again >_>

lol it was all I could to stop myself and going out to buy an Xbox One S. I'll probably wait for the X1X though.

Sneh, it's great to see you again. I don't think Alma feels the same way though. I'm looking forward to new videos from you, bud. :cheer: I'm going to crack 50 Mil this time, only managed ~42 Mil last time.

I had a look at the XOX, I don't think I need all that 4K gubbins so I'm picking up an Xbox One S (the slim-lined updated version of the X1) during Black Friday. Depending on stocks, I plan to get a PS4 Pro and a Nintendo Switch, too.

I hope Mickstupp is doing well, and comes back soon, also. Lots of love and support here for him if he needs it. :thumb:

Thanks , you too buddy. Mmm yeah pretty much the same for me. I just cant seem to justify buying a X1X , so I'm most likely gonna grab a X1S. Pretty sure the benefits of the psuedo-upscale is gonna just about max out on the X1S. I've seen them as low as $180 and theyre currently $200 at Walmart online. I'll wait for some feedback on the X1X version but eh , prolly just grab an X1S.

It's a shame there is no online support for these old games. Bet some people would be more interested in karmarunning if online leaderboards were present.

That's a pretty good deal for an XBone.
