Xbox Execs: Microsoft Will Have A Big Impact Across The Globe In 2017, Excited To Share State of Decay 2 Info
The year of Scorpio continues.
You know how we reported that Microsoft executives have already started hyping up 2017 as the year of the Scorpio? They aren’t stopping, either. In a bunch of new tweets, Josh Stein and Mark Ybarra of Xbox pumped up 2017 as the year that ‘Microsoft will have a big impact across the globe.’
That sentence is actually encouraging to me, because it suggests that Microsoft may be working on new things and perhaps designing the Xbox Scorpio with the global market in mind, as opposed to their traditional USA/UK/Canada centric view when designing their home consoles. Microsoft executives also seemed to be big into hyping up the upcoming State of Decay 2 this year, promising more information over the year.
The Xbox Scorpio is due to launch in Holiday season this year; it will be Microsoft’s new console, with a 6TFLOPs GPU, the most powerful home console ever made. That said, Microsoft have explicitly stated that they will aim for full intercompatiblity between Scorpio and Xbox One.
