On the Xbox app, Microsoft is rolling out a new game performance fit indicator tailored to your specific PC. Under the green Install button for a specific game, a tag, “Plays well on similar PCs,” will show up as a prediction of how Microsoft expects the game to run on your machine.
This tag is determined by Microsoft observing a game’s performance on machines comparable to yours. It’s a new feature that’s a nice-to-have, at-a-glance look if your PC can run certain games before the download button is triggered.
If your PC doesn’t meet minimum requirements, you’ll still be able to check what a game’s minimum specs are. This tag feature isn’t available for every game yet, but will gradually get added. “As we continue to learn about the performance of a game on similar PCs, you may not see a performance check for every game (especially recently added games) until we have enough information to share a recommendation. Keep checking back,” says senior product manager lead Tila Nguyen in a Xbox blog post.
