How to Disable Enhanced Graphics for “Enhanced Xbox 360 Games” on Xbox One X

Remastered Xbox 360 games or popularly known as the “Backward Compatible” Games for Xbox One was one of the major announcement that Microsoft has ever made. The current scenario includes more than 460 Xbox 360 games, 11 Xbox One X Enhanced Xbox 360 titles, and 13 Original Xbox games.

Now after long three years, the Xbox Team is rolling out an update which will allow you to choose between Performance and Graphics. When you play any game on Xbox 360 (on Xbox One X), the Enhanced graphics is turned on by default, and it runs your game higher resolution, 9X the pixel count, increased texture details, and anti-aliasing. The games definitely look much better than their previous versions because of greater visual clarity.

If you turn off the Graphics setting, the graphics will be lower compared to Xbox One X or Xbox One S. If you choose to change, you will have to restart the game again.
