Completely up to the developers.

With E3 drawing closer each day, news and updates on major topics, such as the Xbox Scorpio, for instance, is coming in thick and fast. And now we have another update on the upcoming Xbox upgrade, and it’s pretty big. The Xbox One and the Xbox Scorpio will be part of the same ecosystem, playing the same games, so there’s been speculation that because of this reason, the Scorpio’s technology will be forcibly held back to stay in line with a four year old system. That, however, is not necessarily true, it’s now been confirmed.

Mike Ybarra, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Xbox division, has re-confirmed that developers making games on the Scorpio won’t have any requirements for for limiting framerate, resolution and fidelity placed on them, and that how they want to make use of the Scorpio’s hardware and capabilities will be entirely up to them.

You don’t need us to tell you that this is really good news. The prospect of seeing games that can freely and without any restrictions take full advantage of the Scorpio’s superior hardware is mouth-watering, to say the least. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more updates.

    Yes but has to be on par with Xbox one an online game cant be 30 on one and 60 on Scorpio

    • Grifter17

      The Tweet above infers the exact opposite of what you said …. your thinking of the PS4 to PS4 Pro

      No, it doesn’t. This is just how MS does their usual misleading marketing bullshizzle on Twittler. They ARE mandated that online games must be the same framerate across the Scorpio and the OG Xbox One, unless they’ve now chosen to split up the online communities, in which case the Scorpio will eventually be their only supported game console in the future, leaving the OG Xbox to be abandoned like the original Xbox was.

      hmmm I wonder how this concept works with Counterstrike on my crappy first gen Conroe core 2 cup with Intel graphics card running 720 30fps

      “They ARE mandated that online games must be the same framerate across the Scorpio and the OG Xbox One, unless they’ve now chosen to split up the online communities”

      I dont know about you but they clearly stated, as Grifter17 pointed out ,that its not a mandate anymore and different framerates will not split the community but that’s more opinion that fact.

      Are you in panic mode now just thinking of the fact scorpio might deliver real 4k and 60fps in a game in which ps4pro cant? So what of it? One console is far more powerful than the other so get over it. This will be a fact in every single game third party or not.
      Also they have clearly stated that there is no mandate for absolutely nothing regarding even framerates like only yesterday, Did you miss that bit? And that it should be. No point in holiding the possibilities of a machine back.
      PC gamers play the same games competitively on multiplayer and depending on the rig others have 60fps others have 160fps others have 80 ofthers have 40-50 and so on and so forth. Yet they play and no communities get split or whatever nonsense you are trying to say. So give it up already. If a console can do something (just in the same way a pc can), then it should do that.
      It’s like saying ‘well destiny shouldnt be 4k (well checkerbord 4k) on ps4pro because a better resolution will give an advantage to a player compared to a player who has a basline machine. People should get over these stupid taboos, which you are using for the sole purpose of being salty. What exactly did you think would happen on games when the scorpio came out? They will perform like beasts, why? because the machine can. Now go sit in a corner and lick your wounds.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      Is reading that hard for you? The developers will choose resolution and frame rate. If they prefer to make their games with a higher frame rate then they will simply lower the resolution on the weaker console to achieve that.

    • Fweds

      Wahhh ah Wahhh I was fooled and bought the underpowered PS Protato.

    • Riggybro

      It just means if you are a developer you can split your online base between XB1 people at 30 fps and Scorpio at 60 fps (or not – have them altogether)…

      Which sounds dumb.
      Hence why no developers will actually do it.
      It’s just more marketing. It’s to make you think that they are open platform, game/customer focused, your friend, not like “the other guys”, they are not stiff old suits and ties in a board room but relatable dudes in leather jackets that play games just like you! Yah! Pre-order!

    • Luke Skywalker

      or give option to choose which fps to play at and which base to play with.

    • Fweds

      Or of course the games will have an option or will automatically turn the framerates down to 30fps when playing both Xbox one and Xbox one Scorpio multi player games.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      That is correct and something people tend to forget. However, Developers can always Reduce the resolution on the Xbox One to achieve 60 fps and then have frame rate parity between both.

  • Ocelot forgot his meds

    Well done MS. Unchain the Scorpio completely. It’s up to the devs now. Halo 5 is locked 60fps on dedicated servers and it’s fantastic. Destiny won’t have dedicated servers but if it isn’t 60fps on scorpio, me and my bros will not buy it.

  • STRIKE

    I don’t get what the big deal is? PC gamers have been playing with each other at different framerates for years and I don’t see any complains. Heck something tells me when doing cross play between consoles and PC (which is happening) framerates are different (fact check me on that one)

    • crazy_black_man- ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      How many games can you name that are doing PC to console crossplay right now? Bring the facts bruh.

    • Sackboy612

      Gears of War 4, Rocket league, I don’t think there’s many though

    • crazy_black_man- ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Exactly. Thanks brother.

    • STRIKE

      Gears of War 4, Street Fighter 5, Final Fantasy A Realm Reborn, Rocket League, WarThunder, Paragon, Killer Instinct and some others which I need to look up.

    • STRIKE

      “Bring the facts bruh.”

      Cross Play games:
      1. Forza Horizon 3
      2. Gears of War 4
      3. Killer Instinct
      4. Street Fighter 5
      5. Final Fantasy A Realm Reborn
      6. WarThunder
      7. Paragon
      8. Rocket League
      9. DC Universe Online
      10. Phantasy Star Online 2

      I think there are more and I do know more games will have cross play in the future.

    • Luke Skywalker

      you got the facts, they don’t have the answers.

    • STRIKE

      No answers at all.

    • Sackboy612

      Nice, I forgot about Street Fighter and Forza 🙂 I wasn’t trying to hate on you if it looked like that, your original comment made perfect sense, no-one complains about Gears cross platform play, I still do well on BF1 with a controller if I choose to play that way etc

  • Evil_Annie_2015

    It’s good to know that the ball is on the developers now. This frame-rate talk appears to come from Destiny 2 reveal and their 30fps locked on Consoles. The game is not really visuallly demanding with its cartoony graphics, so it’s up to them to decide. The only deal breaker for me with that game comes from whether they added a story or it’s just another game where a few people are running around shooting enemies without a reason.

    • SalvagedXBot

      I always found it funny that Destiny got a pass for its story cause of the core gameplay, but halo5 was trashed hard yet had great core gameplay and a passable story. Regardless i fully agree Destiny 2 needs to give me more of a reason cause if it’s like the first one with it’s story I’d rather get another shooter.

  • Mr Xrat

    So either an embarrassing reversal after the Pro’s boost mode or a scummy Xbox executive pushing the blame onto developers, knowing full well the restrictions the Shitpio will have.

    • Fweds

      Oh dear more bad news for you and of course you had to first post some negative nonsense.

      Now that Bungie have confirmed the PS Protato is too underpowered to do 4k it look’s like only Scorpio and PC owners will be able to play graphic intense games at best res and framerates.

      Unfortunately for you there is No reversal as they will also release versions that also run on Xbox One

    • Mr Xrat

      You should look up that awful CPU and just four more compute units. Destiny 2’s just the first alarm call. For your own sanity, you should wake up now.

  • Evil_Annie_2015

    Thank you Microsoft for passing the buck on my 4K power to spare beast!!! This is why I love my movie player so much. It looks like developers can’t compromise their games much further…hehe! ;0)
