Halo 3 headlines the Xbox 360 titles receiving enhancements on Xbox One X.

Microsoft has made a big deal about how the upcoming Xbox One X will make regular Xbox One games look and play better, but today it's announced that the high-powered system will enhance Xbox 360 titles, too.

As revealed to IGN, four Xbox 360 games will receive Xbox One X enhancements when the console launches on 7 November. These are Halo 3, Fallout 3, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and the original Assassin's Creed. The biggest improvement to these games is the resolution, with each title sporting nine times the pixels on-screen. Other enhancements include HDR lighting and increased colour depth.

While Microsoft has not confirmed whether it will be enhancing other Xbox 360 titles for Xbox One X, it did recently announce Xbox One X enhancements for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which includes the Xbox 360 title Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition. It seems quite plausible that it, at least, will also receive Xbox One X enhancements in the near future.

IGN also put together a comparison video showing the difference between Halo 3 running on an Xbox 360 versus an Xbox One X. Check it out below:
