Microsoft Exec Denies Taking Shots At PS4 Pro, Scorpio Will Have Same Port Layout As Xbox One S

And more.

Posted By | On 09th, Apr. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Shubhankar2508


Albert Penello, the head of marketing over at Microsoft’s Xbox division, has recently been quite active on Twitter, talking about the upcoming Xbox Scorpio. He has given out plenty of information on the system’s specifications and features.

Interestingly, he made a comment about how the Scorpio won’t need a “boost mode”, and that the entire system is the equal of a boost mode. When people took this to mean that he was taking shots at the PS4 Pro, he denied it, saying, “I wish people didn’t take it that way. I was asked a question and tried to explain in a simple way.”

In another tweet, he listed a number of features, before stating that Xbox One is “more than just specs”, probably suggesting that the system is not impressive because of its specifications, but as a whole. “Supersampling, faster load times, 4K GameDVR, Improves existing Xbox One and 360 BC games,” he said. “New HW innovations. More than just the specs.”

He also mentioned that all the stuff you already have on your Xbox One HDD can plug right into Scorpio without a long and tiresome transfer process, and that developers will have the ability to dynamically scale their games for the system.

When asked on NeoGAF whether the Xbox One Scorpio will have a second HDMI out for audio, he said that it wouldn’t, confirming that it would have the same port layout as Xbox One S.

    The difference between the Scorpio and PS4 Pro is minimal spec wise.

    The difference between Scorpio is PS4 Pro game wise is HUGE.

    The difference between Scorpio and PC is HUGE. One allows you to play Steam games, Xbox One games and is an open Windows 10 platform allowing the user to do much, much more. The other is a walled in Windows 10 platform that charges the user for Xbox Live, doesn’t play Steam games, but plays 3rd party console games, and old Xbox 360 games.

    Is it worth paying possibly a $700 premium just to play your old 360 games on Scorpio when Microsoft could just have easily patched that functionality into comparable current Windows 10 PCs? That is up to the Xbox gamer to decide. There are definitely no major exclusive Xbox One games worth getting too excited about.
    I expect the PS4 Pro and the base PS4 model to continue leading console sales until whenever Sony decides to unleash the PS5. There is obviously no need to rush it out because of Scorpio, when MS really doesn’t have any good games comparable to what Sony has to offer in its 2017-2018 release calender, to showcase the Scorpio with. All this fanfare when there is really nothing new to see that we aren’t seeing right now on the PC and the PS4 Pro. But then again, of course it would be exciting to anybody who’s been stuck playing games since 2013 on Xbox One hardware. I don’t know how they did it for this long. I bet November can’t get here soon enough.

    • Psionicinversion

      the difference between scorpio and pro is massive spec wise but fanboys will be fanboys hoping its $700 but will end up crying when its around $500

    • Gamez Rule
    • Psionicinversion

      43% more gpu power, 50% more ram and bandwidth. Pretty decent. I still find it funny when people reckon it’s going cost $700 because of the “premium” tag but anything over $399 is a premium. Guess they just can’t put things into context

    • Gamez Rule

      It’s not a massive leap over PS4-Pro like some people believed it would be, but it’s a leap over the PS4-Pro nevertheless.

      Price is subjective, and to be honest if people want the Scorpio they will buy it no matter what the cost. PS: it’s not 50% more RAM as it’s about 33% as PS4-Pro has 9GB and Scorpio has 12GB. But the bandwidth would be over 50% extra.

      But still only a powerful Xbone S just like the PS4-Pro is still only a powerful PS4, what MS needs now is new IP’s and first party AAA full exclusives to give all Xbone gamers what they promised ages ago because these four months into 2017 we have seen nothing.

    • Psionicinversion

      i dont think there doing to well with the new IPs. shame they cancelled scalebound though, it looked quite good. love dragons

    • Gamez Rule

      I was…Am..gutted that game got canned. That was one of the many reason I bought into Xbone.

    • Psionicinversion

      dunno what the real reason why it got cancelled. if it was because it wouldnt run properly on X1 then just make it only for scorpio and simply say look it just doesnt run on the X1 in a satisfactory way rather than be like yup we’ll just flush how ever millions down the toilet

    • Gamez Rule

      Hopefully MS now focuses on games for all their consoles, and not just push the consoles out for Windows 10.

      Example: Destiny 2 might run native 4k on Scorpio, but with PS4-Pro you’ll get all the exclusive content ( shown via Destiny 1 ) …So MS needs to get some exclusive deals and games for it’s consoles.

    • Psionicinversion

      there not pushing console out for windows 10 cus they can just be updated.spencer needs to make some deals with 3rd partys even when he said he wasnt going do it anymore which would be a mistake really. even then i game on pc so i wouldnt get any of it anyway.

    • Dougdec92

      That would’ve gone against the core principle of satiating and not dividing their install base

    • Learned Handgun

      I was disappointed too. I really think that MS decided the game was not going to live up to expectations, and was being overly dragged out, so they decided to have 6 months of relative quietness than to have a negative 6 months.

      For me, releasing a disappointing game when PS4 is releasing Gold is worse than not releasing anything (but only for a few months of course). MS is trying to reimage, and that means a brief radio silence instead of only average/below average releases.

    • mwalker

      All the Industry Pros say otherwise

    • wobblypops46

      It is a massive leap over the pro whether you want to admit it or
      not. Richard Leadbetter at DF said it will do native 4K and we all know the PS pro can’t unless we’re talking about a crappy little indie game. Every game that the Pro runs will run better on Scorpio and yes, it does matter.

      It’s funny, reminds me of all the earlier PS4 and XB1
      articles where Sony fanboys always go crazy in the comment sections making such a big deal out of the PS4’s power advantages. Looking at the differences between the 4 consoles it’s pretty clear that those differences are much more significant between the Scorpio vs Pro.

    • Gamez Rule

      It’s not a massive leap over PS4-Pro like some people believed it would be, but it is a leap over PS4-Pro nevertheless.

      Truth is that powerful consoles doesn’t always win the day when it comes to console gaming as Wii clearly proved when it outsold both PS3 and 360. Now all we need are new IP’s, some full exclusives and some AAA first party games, just like Sony have showed us with PS4.

      As for 4k most people own a 1080p TV so until 4k becomes the mass market of TV support people will still be happy with their Xbone and PS4’s. MS needs new IP’s and first party games as otherwise what’s the point in using Scorpio over PC / Xbone.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Those power advantages that the PS4 has over the Xbox One were real. Native 4k over checkerboard 4k isn’t really that big a leap. But then you look at the exclusives and you see exactly why Scorpio isn’t going to bust a grape. You now have the specs you wanted and this great new game console to brag about, but where are all the big exclusive games that make this competing console worth owning? HELLO???

    • Gamez Rule
    • Rebelox

      The PS3 outsold the xbox One and is still selling.

      I think the PS3 is on the second spot or something when it comes to total sales.

      I was looking for how long the PS3 online service would be available and it will continue up to 2019 i think.

      There will still be new games releases on the PS3 as well.

    • ArdentClutter

      Here is a question. Where is the Pros big name exclusive(s)?. Why would I want a pro, when the ps4 is capable of doing the same thing. Give me a valid reason why I want the already exclusives that is coming to the two systems, but also a big name exclusive that makes the pro. The console to get over the base model.

      Spencer has already said the scorpio won’t be getting any exclusives. Only VR ones. How is that the pro gets a pass and yet it leeches off the ps4 games. But somehow the scorpio is expected to have exclusives of its own?.

    • Gamez Rule

      Here is some questions.

      Where are the Scorpio’s big named exclusive(s)?. Why would I
      want a Scorpio, when the Xbone is capable of doing the same thing?

      Isn’t that the same thing you’re asking about the PS4 and PS4-Pro?

      Truth is there is no need to buy into PS4-Pro if you already have a PS4,( hence why PS4-Pro sale are not as good as base model sales ) but the PS4-Pro console will help improve VR gaming, and Scorpio can be looked upon with the same views as I posted with PS4-Pro over PS4.

      As for Scorpio and the VR games which are *ONLY* playable on Scorpio that would = exclusive games on Scorpio not possible on Xbone. So yes Scorpio will have it’s own exclusive games for VR gamers.

    • Rebelox

      True.. the Scorpio is a next gen console disguised as a current gen console.

      VR is only for the Scorpio and xbox One owners are going to miss out on a lot.

      And yeah Scorpio is mimicking the PS4 with VR capability as well, Sony came up with the PSVR first..

      Well ok, Microsoft took the first shot in the next gen console war.. Wait untill Sony starts making their next gen console.

    • ArdentClutter

      “Where are the Scorpio’s big named exclusive(s)?. Why would I
      want a Scorpio, when the Xbone is capable of doing the same thing?”

      Scorpio has never sold itself on the “exclusives” well not the conventional ones as most are thinking, more on the technical aspect. If that’s yours or peoples misconception about the console then that can’t be helped.

      “Isn’t that the same thing you’re asking about the PS4 and PS4-Pro?”

      From what I’m reading & hearing alot, the PS4-Pro sells itself on the exclusive side. This punctuated by the Sony loyalists and MS detractors. So don’t you think that is where the question should be more squarely aimed at.

      “As for Scorpio and the VR games which are *ONLY* playable on Scorpio
      that would = exclusive games on Scorpio not possible on Xbone. So yes
      Scorpio will have it’s own exclusive games for VR gamers”

      Not really sure why’re reiterating this to me. And more to point, we both know that’s not what you or any of the MS detractors are really intentionally saying or mean, lol.
      The Pro’ own VR exclusives haven’t exactly set the world on fire. If they had an MMORPG – well that would be a different story altogether.

    • Gamez Rule

      I own Xbone… I own PS4… I buy games for each consoles ( see pic ) But the point I’m making is…. Sod Scorpio where are the *Exclusive games with the tonnes of developer support* that Albert Penello stated ages ago for people that already own the MS consoles, and where is this so called great games lineup Phil Spencer stated a little while ago?

      We are in the 4th month of 2017 and had no full exclusive games for Xbone and had no developer supported games released within the 4 months that I am aware. ( Example : Destiny 2 on PS4 shows dev support ) and Horizon Zero Dawn on PS4 shows full exclusive & new IP ( Xbone has Zero full exclusive games and no new IPs as of yet this year )….Still waiting.

      PS: it’s not *PS4-Pro that sells itself on the exclusive side* it is PS4 in general as unlike Xbone ALL exclusive games work on all PS4’s including VR games no matter what PS4 console you own.

    • Rebelox

      No, the Scorpio is *technically* 5% better than the Scorpio. In theory it all sounds nice but in practice it will be a different story.

      Scorpio vs Pro specs:

      4 more compute units, 4 gb extra Ram and a slightly higher clock speed.

    • Makaveli2

      The issue is back both systems was severely lacking in exclusives. The only thing they can compete in is how multiplatform performed which the ps4 has held even to this day.

    • ArdentClutter

      Sea of thieves is a new IP. Whether it tickles your fancy, that is entirely up to you. But it is a new IP none the less. Same with recore, QB, SSD, ryse. New IPs that didn’t fare so well.

      Likely with Spencer, they’ll revisit the more older IPs they have. After all voodo vince, crackdown, phantom dust have made their return. So who knows what they have in store at E3.

    • Gamez Rule

      It’s waiting till E3 once again to see games, while for the first four months into 2017 we have had nothing new or seen any full exclusives that are only playable on Xbone.

      I just hope that what they show at E3 isn’t cancelled like MS done with Scalebound, Fable Legends, etc.

    • Makaveli2

      Crackdown 3 was announced in 2014 and still no release date. Whatever new thing is seen at e3 probably won’t be out till the ps5 is out.

    • Gamez Rule

      I’m hearing you mate.

    • Learned Handgun

      I agree that it’s not a massive leap over the PS4p but it is significant. The significant increase of specs though are only a part of the (hardware) story. The optimizations and cooling tech used will make a huge difference.

      Game wise, you’re right. While multiplats are generally the best games (Witcher 3, Battlefield, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, etc.) the Xbox does need at least some exclusives since the PS4 still has exclusives (optimally, there would be not console exclusives). Fortunately, E3 is coming up, and all signs indicate that MS is really trying to build up for a huge show.

      MS’s strategy appears to be hype the hardware, announce the games, and then (i’m guessing) announce the price of Scorpio at a price that will just steal all of the attention going into Christmas. I anticipate a modest Scorpio price, some really good 4k TV and Scorpio bundles, and several unannounced titles (some exclusives and some “power of Scorpio unleased” marketing type b.s.).

    • Eddie Battikha

      $500 it will be

    • Rebelox

      43% more power compared to the.. Xbox One!

      It’s not 43% more power than the PS Pro!

      But nice try..

    • Psionicinversion

      Really… Ok Scorpio is 1.8tflop more than pro. Divide 4.2 by 10 = 0.42. 1.8 divided by 0.42 = 4.28 put that into a percentage = 42.8% more power. It’s fun to know simple maths that people like you completely fail at!!!

    • Rebelox

      Lol.. you use the terraflops as a meassuring stick.

      Why don’t u say there is a 2.3hz cpu on the Scorpio compared to the 2.1 hz cpu on the PS Pro?

      The Scorpio has a 0.3 % better cpu.

      And there is an extra 4gb of Ram on the Scorpio.. a total of 12fb. The PS4 Pro has 8gb.

      The Scorpio has 4% more memory.

      Conclusion the Scorpio is.. 43% better?! No. It’s more like 4.3% better.

      But ok, i will bump it up to 5% for you, so you don’t feel bad about it.

      Wow that’s so vaaastly superior than the PS Pro.. not.

    • Psionicinversion

      Oh get lost failed troll

    • Rebelox

      People like you is the reason i will never buy the Scorpio. .

    • mwalker

      I’d say so. 120 gigs a sec more is substantially better

    • Gamez Rule

      Better yes.

    • crazy_black_man-

      They are in such denial about this in their desire to finally be able to say that they have something to brag about. Its actually kinda funny listening to them oooh, and aaaah about the specs. Hilariousness!!!

    • Mr Xrat

      LOL that update! Xgimps tried to tell themselves “backed-in DX12” would save the CPU.

    • ArdentClutter

      LAWLZ still an update over gimpedstation.

    • Mr Xrat

      Barely. You waited ten months for this. No wonder Xgimps are so shook.

    • ArdentClutter

      Denial. More like gimpstation are shooked. Hoping for a PS5 anytime soon?.

    • Mr Xrat

      Don’t need to. PS4’s already far better than any Sh*tbox console. Never mind, eh? Maybe next gen.

    • ArdentClutter

      Sure keeping telling yourself that. The Xbox is way better than the Sh*tstation. Oh well, next gen is always around the corner for you :).

    • Makaveli2

      Dude the PS4 current and for more then 3 yrs already has been the most powerful console and lately has been running away with the exclusive crown when prior both the Xbox one and PS4 were seen lacking exclusives and games. The Scorpio isn’t out yet. You are talking about something later down the line when you say the Xbox is way better since the Scorpio hasn’t been released.

    • Rebelox

      Keep taunting Sony..

    • Riggybro

      That update was incredible.
      It brought it back down to earth in a big way.

      Initially on paper the specs looked pretty much slightly-above-standard for a late 2017 console BUT then all the “baked in hardware DX12” talk really threw a spanner in the works i.e – “secret sauce” especially in combination with the Forza 4K/60 thing – People are like “Wow look at the benchmarks it’s better than GTX 1080 ti!” (but if that is true that pretty much means AMD is shooting themselves in the foot – why bother buying an AMD CPU or GPU when you can get a more powerful heavily subsidised version in a Scorpio?!)

      But with that update now it all looks a little more suspicious…

      We really need to see a 3rd party Assassins Creed/Battlefield or something.
      Eg. if a multiplat ends up 1800p/30 fps on Pro and 2160p/30 fps on Scorpio with almost identical graphics then that provides a bit better context/comparison.

    • Gamez Rule

      Exactly.

      That Forza game shown running at 4k & 60fps is a 1080p game made to 4k, but what about third party games like *Star Wars Battlefront* or *Titanfall 2* or even *Watch Dogs* and other games like you mentioned *Assassins Creed* I can’t see then all running at 4K and 60fps with ultra settings.

      I still remember how MS tried pulling the wool over peoples eyes when they stated Crackdown 3 using the power of the cloud = 20 x the computational power of Xbone☺… So until I know 100% what the Scorpio can do with games I take what MS state with a pinch of salt.

    • kee1haul

      Damage control.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Is that really your best counter argument? That’s pretty sad. I’m not trying to be mean. I’m glad you guys are finally getting a console deemed to be worth your money. But let’s just be real. Its really just a walled in PC.

    • kee1haul

      Your sudden modesty isn’t fooling anyone.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Oooooo….k.

    • J.j. Barrington

      How is that a relevant response?

    • mwalker

      Not according to Digital Foundry. Having 4 more gigs of gddr5 ram is huge. 100+ gigs a second faster is also huge. They specifically said The Scorpio is a major upgrade over the pro. Go and watch it for yourself. I’ll still be playing The Show on my Pro, but I’ll definitely buy all the cross platform games on Scorpio

    • Mr Xrat

      Not enough RAM for 4K textures and AnandTech is raising red flags over the bandwidth. They had to make shortcuts to get less than $600 though. 🙂

    • ArdentClutter

      Sure, sure keep telling yourself that. The sh*tstation just got served. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bd02eaf1f4bb7182650c295b2a2d80560bfafb910bc7893bbb79d7db1be0bb7b.gif

    • Rebelox

      ‘4k meltmode’ on the Scorpio. XD

      Specially with the Scorpio’s integrated power supply.. the PS Pro’s power supply was externally for a reason, Sony ussually never does that on a console.

    • Rebelox

      It’s not enough for true 4K. You will get games with 4K resolution but everything else will be set to medium or low.

      The only reason why they had Forza 6 running at 4k/60fps on the Scorpio was because they made a special “forza 6 demo” for the Scorpio.. again marketing tricks.

      Microsoft told Digital Foundry.. and Digital foundry told us.. that Microsoft didn’t do anything to the game to make it run at 4k and 60fps.. but i don’t believe that.

      He said they just popped in the disc into the Scorpio and that Forza magically runned 4k at 60fps..

      Also if a game was made in a specific locked resolution and fps then the Scorpio won’t do anything with that game = waste of money.

    • mwalker

      With your logic the PlayStation Pro would be a waste of money. It doesn’t even have a UHD Blu-ray Drive

    • Rebelox

      Why? Games are different on the PS4.. i don’t care about a 4k drive, i download my movies to USB/HDD or i just stream.

    • mwalker

      That’s a hassle. I have a pro and I agree that Horizon looks amazing on it. But I’m not understanding how your drawing such a line between the Scorpio and pro in terms of value!?! Look up the cost for a stand alone UHD drive. And yes, you can stream. But there is a big difference in quality vs a disc. Trust me. It’s almost impossible to get true HDR through streaming as well. But as far as games. Digital foundry said that Turn 10 put the Forza 6 engine , with Max PC settings , unoptimized, on the Scorpio in two days …And it was at native 4k /60fps. Even Richard himself said that that was extremely impressive. If I were you I would be excited on the possibilities of that. Imagine the third party and first-party team that have time to optimize the game with that much horsepower behind it. I guess the proof will be at E3

    • quantum

      Come on buddy, I know you hate xbox but you don’t honestly believe that it will be $700. Let them have their moment, after 3 solid years of abuse they derserve it. If nothing else the Scorpio is going to be the go-to console for the best looking multi-plats. Better late than never, give credit where it’s due.

    • crazy_black_man-

      I said “possibly” $700. Don’t put it past MS to ask for that amount. They have to start somewhere in order to discount the system in the future. I’m expecting $600-$700. They’re not going to continue taking such huge losses on Xbox hardware. Don’t forget they had the gall to charge $150 for that crappy Elite controller. What a ripoff that was. And then there is the losses they incured on the Kinect being a failure too. Scorpio is gonna cost you. Thats what words like “premium” and “enthusiast” stand for. Suckers that are more than willing to pay more for something,

    • quantum

      I know you said ‘possibly’ but you do like to spice things up a bit 🙂 If they release it at that price then it’s doomed.
      I will make a sportsman bet with you now. I say no more than $549 for the basic sku. Then more maybe for bigger hd’s.
      Lets wait until E3 for bragging rights.

    • crazy_black_man-

      That price point based on hard drive size sounds reasonable too. But don’t forget it still needs a “must own” launch game.

    • quantum

      Lol ‘must own’ is subjective, to some another Forza might be a ‘must own’ I can’t promise that. Did the pro launch with a ‘must own’ ? I don’t think it did 🙂 but hey like I said it is subjective.

    • J.j. Barrington

      The Pro didn’t have as much riding on its launch, either. And while it didn’t come out right at launch, I’d say Horizon fits the bill nicely.

    • quantum

      Horizon does look awesome but 4 and a half months later none the less. My comment was not a dig but an honest statement. I love my ps4 but didn’t feel the need to upgrade to the pro.
      I will upgrade my xbox one s to a scorpio however because of the big leap.

    • crazy_black_man-

      And rightfully you should upgrade to the Scorpio LOL…but it’s still just a Windows 10 pc with an Xbox Live subscription, that just so happens to be able to play Xbox 360 games. Sorry bro. It is what it is.

    • quantum

      You don’t need to apologise, I still have my ps4 to keep me company, I’ve just finished getting the best ending in Nier which was awesome btw.
      Let’s be honest though, exclusives aside the ps4 is also basically a PC with psn. I expect the PS5 to be even closer to a PC and continue using x86

    • J.j. Barrington

      Consoles are pretty much exclusive-playing PCs. Thing is: this is the first time a console’s exclusives have all been on PC…

    • quantum

      Agreed, but I don’t own a gaming pc. My last 2 games on ps4 were tales of beseria and Nier both of which are on the pc. I’m just a console guy tbh. Even if they are just fixed spec pc’s.

    • J.j. Barrington

      I agree, for the most part. I’m a console guy, too. That said, there are a few PC-only games I want to sink my teeth into. Gotta move into this house and get our other car up and running before I start thinking about that, though.

    • Rebelox

      Everybody is so excited to play xbox360 games on a 4k xbox machine.. not.

      The only reason Microsoft wants this bc to work is because all their game development is non existent and they want to milk their own userbase with old games.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Exactly.

    • crazy_black_man-

      The Pro didn’t need one. The PS4 was already leading in sales, so a “better” PS4 wouldn’t make much of a difference game wise when it was already better than the Xbox One AND the One S.

    • quantum

      Don’t move the goal posts, the bet still stands 🙂 I know they released the pro to appease the 4k tv owners but imo it wasn’t really needed due to the fact that the ps4 was selling so well.
      Nobody expects xbox to take over in sales this gen, but they can still end the gen on a high note if nothing else.

    • ArdentClutter

      Exactly, why do these fans seem to think the scorpio needs exclusives when the pro never launched or have a must have exclusive.

    • Rebelox

      The Pro didnt need exclusives.. it already had games you could play from the PS4.

      And it did launch with Pro enhanced games if i recall correctly, COD: infinite warfare and Titanfall 2 are pro enhanced games that were released around the launch of the PS Pro.

      Then Sony started patching more older games to play in a higher resolution and fps on the PS Pro.

      Plus we also got boost mode for older games that would not be patched.

    • ArdentClutter

      The question is; what will MS show at this years E3. They’ve been holding their cards close to their chests. It must be big or not. The fact that they’ve been managing to hold the specs this close to their chests without a leak is… something.

      It’s funny Sony fanboys bash State of decay 2 saying it’s a tired old zombie game. And then they throw in Days Gone – yet another tired old zombie game.

    • crazy_black_man-

      You trippin. Those 2 games aren’t even comparable. State of Decay was cartoony, glitchy as h ell and beyond silly, and 2 will be even worse. Days Gone is a completely new IP. Sony’s games are outta MS league. Don’t even try it.

    • Gamez Rule

      “The question is; what will MS show at this years E3″

      Or bigger question is: What will MS cancel after this years E3. RIP Scalebound / Fable Legends, etc

      Truth is with all views put aside I’m not buying into Scorpio when MS cannot even support us Xbone gamers. It’s all well and good having the worlds most powerful console when there is support, but where are the full exclusive games for Xbone owners?

      We are four months into 2017 and seen nothing in the games department while Sony has released games only playable on PS4 hardware.

      Phil Spencer said there will be Xbox exclusives” where are they now then in 2017?

      What makes you think they will be cancelling after E3 – if you can see in to the future I’d like the lottery numbers if you don’t mind. Didn’t Sony cancel an unnamed game in 2015.
      Point is games get cancelled all the time. And that joke is getting old.

      “And as Phil Spencer said there will be Xbox exclusives” where are they
      now then in 2017?..Also where are all the exclusive games that Albert
      Penello: mentioned. “We have a great exclusive games lineup”?……Still
      waiting.”

      Well you’re going have to wait, as they’ve pegged at the said convention when the games will be annouced. you know the event where you can see in to the future and predict that majority of their games will be cancelled, lol.
      Also Spencer has said, and that’s after the cancellation of scale bound (rip), that they won’t be annoucing games too early.

      No need to see into the future when the past E3 showed Scalebound, Fable Legends, ( all named games ) getting canned after MS hyping them games up to people on what exclusives Xbone gamers will be getting on their consoles.

      Much like MS stating Quantum Break would be a Xbone full exclusive, to become a platform exclusive, to then be released later on Steam☺

      And it’s all well and good for E3 greatness to take place but we are ….still waiting…. for full exclusive games and this tonne of dev support MS mentioned, and we are into 4 months of 2017 and MS have nothing to show game-wise to Xbone users while Sony has released game after game with loads in the pipe line.

      E3 cannot change that can it. We just need game support on Xbone, and when the media, gamers and critics state this then really there is a problem.

      And you’ve played SoD 2 already have you?. Cartoony, well the zombie genre do tend to have tongue in cheek now and again.

      Zombie game is a zombie game, irrespective of whether or not days gone is a new IP. No matter how you cut it.

      You know things are bad when they had to drag Penello out of the morgue.

    Verrry niiice….Every multiplat superior on Scorpio has got the Sony media boys worked up. Thats like 90% of all games released. Plus Xbox’s multiplayer games will be very impressive on this thing and they offer vastly more replay value than Sony’s single player hack n slash, anime weirdness. Regardless, play em on PSnow PC if I care. 4k bluray to boot. Can’t wait for this one.

    • Mr Xrat

      Those awful-looking MS “exclusives” at 4K, retarded woodpecker. Have fun with that sparse rendering, at least you’ll still be able to watch movies while you justify the online fee to yourself. 🙂

      If i was a Xbox One-S owner i’d already have a 4k blu ray player and backwards compatibility.. why on earth would i buy a Scorpio then?

      It would make more sense (to me) to buy an Xbox One-S.. second handed.

  • Mr Xrat

    Head of Sh*box marketing resorts to twitter to talk up the Jaguar CPU and the whole four more compute units after ten months of “beast” spin and Zen begging. Now that’s damage control, Mark.

    Won’t be long before the f*t f*ck stumbles into another 2013-style blunder.

      Served by what, Scorpio isn’t even out yet 。until then PS4 is strongest console on the market.

  • Makaveli2

    It’s quite ironic to me that there are Xbox fans that think Sony as a company has been acting arrogant this generation. While in the past and now to me it was always Microsoft that takes subtle jabs at the PlayStation. Perhaps it’s jus bias on both sides.

  • Rebelox

    Ok cool.. hehe.. nice move Microsoft, keep taking shots at Sony..

    The PS4 Pro could have been much much more powerfull but they didn’t want to split the user base that much and it’s not the end of this current console generation, it’s just a refresh.

    But ok.. you wanna take cheap shots at Sony cause of the Scorpio’s power?

    Right.. so it’s like that now huh?

    Don’t worry.. Sony is making the most brutal gaming machine ever made!

    Microsoft you win this battle but not the war..

    Sony forever!!!

    • HaCkEr_Fc

      Yawn….

  • Rebelox

    Sony can do the same.

    If Microsoft is gonna be like that then Sony can play the same game..

    They wanna go all out with the Scorpio? Sony can go all out as well.. no rules from now on.

    • Gamez Rule

      Let’s be honest. MS haven’t won anything this gen and truth is MS knows that they cannot retake the current market from Sony and ther PS4. Power is great when supported, but so are lesser powerful consoles as shown in past history of console support.

      I believe that Scorpio is a little late to the party and will always be playing catch up with VR gaming and PS4. IMO no matter what MS do this gen with gaming it wouldn’t matter to the gamers as a whole. People go where games are and so far that is PS4.

    This is one of the best/worst threads of fanboyism I’ve seen. Even Xrat/BrokeBlackMoaning/etc. went all out on this article, and that dude is already one of the most pathetic internet trolls, but he managed to take it to a new level.
