Handy Xbox One update lets you search for 4K, HDR and Xbox One X enhanced games.
It's a promising step towards clearing up the Xbox One X's murky messaging.
One of the most confusing aspects of Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One X console is figuring out what vanilla Xbox One games will take advantage of the X's additional horsepower and how, specifically, they'll use it. We broke down some of the bigger problems with the Xbox One X Enhanced program earlier this year, and it seems that Microsoft has recognised the need to improve its messaging if its latest Xbox One system update is anything to go by.
As spotted by the keen-eyed folks over at Eurogamer, participants in the Xbox Insider Program's alpha ring are currently testing the new system update, and one of the key features is an option to filter your game collection by 4K- and HDR-compatibility, as well as support for the Xbox One X Enhanced program.
Hopefully this feature will be extended to the Xbox Store itself, so you can check whether a new game will take full advantage of your shiny new 4K TV before you drop your hard-earned cash on it.
So far, Microsoft has confirmed over 30 existing Xbox One games will be updated to leverage the Xbox One X's extra grunt when the console launches on 7 November.
