Whether Or Not Xbox Scorpio’s Power Is Utilized Will Depend On Developers And Power Gap, Says Dev

“If the power difference is really that huge developers are going to need a lot of time and tweaking to take advantage of it.”

The Xbox One Scorpio is supposed to be the most powerful console ever built- and indeed, Microsoft lets no opportunity pass to remind us just how powerful this new system us truly going to be, with adjectives such as ‘beast’ frequently having been used to refer to it by Microsoft executives themselves.

And yet, there is a conceptual problem here- given that each Scorpio game needs to maintain intercompatibility with the existing Xbox One, does all that extra power truly amount to much? This is a question we have often pondered- and so, we posed it to Guillermo Andrades, Creative Director at CremaGames, currently working on Immortal Redneck. Does he think the extra power in Scorpio will functionally amount to much?

“It all depends on the developers,” he said. “Right now what we’re seeing with PS4 Pro is that most games are the same and the changes between the versions are really small (resolution, framerate or more effects). If the power difference is really that huge developers are going to need a lot of time and tweaking to take advantage of it.”

What goes unsaid here is that developers may choose not to utilize that extra power effectively, or at all, to save time and resources- after all, that is exactly what happened with the original Xbox (versus the PlayStation 2), as an example. Microsoft needs to reconcile some of the contradictions inherent within the Scorpio concept.

    The Scorpio will have exclusive games and backwards compatibility will be used to serve as intercompatibility between Scorpio and XB1 games. That’s what I got out of that (and everything else Microsoft has said about the Scorpio).

    Will the Scorpio usher in a whole new era of physics and realism, probably not. But, being that devs really only need to unlock framerates to see improvements, I think it’s fair to expect 1080p/60fps as standard for Scorpio, at the least. Also, being that most multi-plats come on PC with different graphics settings and consoles normally run on low settings, I think its fair to assume that devs will be able to up the Scorpio graphics to include settings already available on PC.

    “Microsoft needs to reconcile some of the contradictions inherent within the Scorpio concept.”

    Translation: Microsoft needs to stop telling bold faced lies to its dumb fanbase.

    • Sp4ctr0

      Xbox One: 720p 30fps
      PS4: 900p 30fps
      PS4 Pro: 1080p 30fps
      Xbox Scorpio 1440p 60fps.

    • crazy_black_man-

      No games.

    • Smart guy

      Think you need to retry typing that again lol. Before putting stupidity on the Internet read what you typed. Dumbass

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. Speaking of their dumb fanbase. There is a salty representative above.

    • Smart guy

      Lol coming from a stupid black man who can’t read what he types before he posts lol typical. Once again read before you post. I know it’s hard for someone who is clearly under educated no one is salty I read your post and saw your clear mistake but you obviously aren’t smart enough. Enjoy your day lol

    • crazy_black_man-

      Clear mistake? LOL. Youre an idiot. Thats what is clear.

      What the Xbox fanbase wants is a PS4 that uses an Xbox controller and can use the Xbox Live service. The Xbox console itself is a janky cheaply manufactured crapbox with no quality control and a slow laggy operating system, and we both know it. Go have a good cry Felicia.

    • Smart guy

      Lol I never even said my console preference you just assumed because I pointed out your obvious mistake. Talk about salty lol its your own fault that you can’t think before you speak. Ignorance is bliss little one! Everyone is laughing at you 🙂

    • crazy_black_man-

      Obvious mistake? Your console preference? What are you talking about?
      First of all, I never insinuated your console preference even once in my
      comments, and I said EXACTLY what I meant to say in my original
      comment. I’m sorry that in your own poor reading comprehension that what I said went completely over your stupid head. Are you smarter than a fifth grader?

    • Smart guy

      Lol nice TV show pun kid! Your previous comment did say what you thought my console preference is I’ve seen all your comments before all you do is try to bash on anyone other the PS4 fans and make yourself look like a fool lol and your so salty on the true statements people tell you that you feel like you need to “try” to insult others when they point out your faults and assume they are xbox fans. I’m sure you did mean what you said because you are under educated. Keep up with your trashy insults and TV show puns little one lol again enjoy your day! 😀

  • Mr Xrat

    That “event” is the press conference that was originally on Monday, drip.

  • Eddie Battikha

    The point is scorpios gonna be 1 year late to the party and to notice native 4k u have to be really close to ur 4k tv. NBA 2K17 looked awesome on my PS4 Pro and LGB6 . Hardcore gamers want good exclusive games which Xbox only has a few compared to Playstation.

  • crazy_black_man-

    LOL!!!! You guys are clinging to a branch on a cliff like Nathan Drake. Never let go.

  • Jimmy DoneGood

    Sony is a dying company so it doesn’t make sense to support Playstation any longer.
