Xbox Series X and S games with 120 FPS Why should I want 120 FPS?
Running games at a higher framerate allows for more animation detail, reduces input lag and generally allows for a better gaming experience. You can see these benefits in action thanks to the video below, which slows down Ori and the Will of the Wisps with a side-by-side comparison of the game running at 60 FPS and 120 FPS.
Xbox Series X and S games with 120 FPS Will more games be added?
Developers have the option of targeting different refresh rates and resolutions, so this list is sure to grow. Microsoft has previously discussed how some backward compatible titles can have their framerates doubled on the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, meaning that in theory some 60FPS games may run at 120FPS on the new consoles.
As yet, we do not have a list of the games that will benefit from these enhancements. Some of them may end up being among the best Xbox games available.
