If you are still on the fence as to why you should throw down $499 to upgrade to Xbox One X on November 7, Microsoft today announced two new games are being enhanced for this powerful new console. During Microsoft pre-Gamescom livesteam, Aaron Greenberg, the head of games marketing at Microsoft, revealed Halo 5 and Quantum Break are both receiving free 4K updates for Xbox One X.

Greenberg also stated that Microsoft is pleased with the feedback coming in from third-party developers that are working with Xbox One X, noting that Respawn's Titanfall 2, and Bethesda's Fallout 4 will be offering free 4K updates later this year. Greenberg concluded that over 100 games will be enhanced for Xbox One X. We don't know exactly what these patches will enhance in each game, but it does sound like developers are mostly on board for giving adopters a better gaming experience.
