When the Xbox One X launched in November, players discovered the console could run a completely un-patched disc version of The Witcher 3 at 60 frames per second. The Xbox One X update for the game dropped today, giving players a choice of 60 FPS performance or 30 FPS at 4K.
Mirror's Edge took people by surprise when it released back in 2008. The first-person parkour game was transportive, making you feel the air rush past you as you bolted across rooftops. It's also one of the games that you can upscale to 4K on the Xbox One X.
Almost a decade later, not only can you play Mirror's Edge on a current console, you can experience a better version of it.
Last week, the Xbox One X sold out at stores in Japan. Since retailers were only filling pre-orders and there weren't lines, it was hard to tell how the console did. Famitsu's sale figures shed light on the situation.

When The Witcher 3 launched for the original Xbox One back in 2015, it only ran at 900p (1600 x 900) resolution and had trouble maintaining a stable 30 frames per second. The same unpatched version of the game, running fresh from the disc, hits 60 frames per second more often than not on the Xbox One X.
Going home earlier this week, my partner wanted to play Assassin's Creed: Origins. She'd been playing it for a few days - being a double history major, makes sense - and was just starting to get into a groove with the game.
So we went home. Powered up the Xbox One X. Tried to launch AC: Origins. But it wouldn't start. We quickly realised that was because it wanted an update.
A ~41GB update, to be exact.
Early yesterday morning, a sign went up in front of the Yodobashi Camera in Tokyo's Akihabara. It read 完売 (kanbai), which means "sold out". This is just one of several stores across Japan that have sold through their stock. There is a reason for that, and that reason is that they're only selling preorders.
