Xbox Scorpio Has Everything Necessary To Render Complex Shader Effects, Switch Is ‘Interesting’

Both machines of the future seem promising enough.

It’s an exciting time for the industry- we have the PlayStation VR, which just launched, we have the impending launch of the PS4 Pro, which will be the world’s first 4K console, we have the Xbox One Scorpio, which is being billed as the strongest console ever made, and we have the Nintendo Switch, which looks to be a truly exciting portable-console hybrid.

The latter two systems, especially, excite the imagination, especially since they seem to be pushing the boundaries so much more than anything on the market currently. So when we got the chance to talk to Tomasz Dutkiewicz, CEO of Madmind Studio, the developers behind Agony, we decided to ask him for his take on both, the Scorpio and the Switch. And Dutkiewicz seems rather impressed by both machines, it sounds like.

“One of the roles that I have at Madmind is creating particle effects; and all I can say from my perspective is that Scorpio seems to have all that is necessary to make particle effects and shaders much more complex. And it will be a visible difference from what we have now,” he said, when asked about the Scorpio.

On the Switch, he seemed to be unwilling to count Nintendo out, noting that Nintendo have always been able to make unusual ideas work, and that the Switch seems to be ‘interesting’ to begin with.

“Nintendo always surprises the world with their original ideas, and NX also seems to be an interesting machine,” he said. “A few years ago, many people claimed that the Wii would be a disaster, but it turned out to be perfect for the casual players. We just need to wait and see.”

Indeed, whether or not the Scorpio and Switch can realize their promise is something that remains to be seen. As a fan of gaming, and of Nintendo and Xbox, I will keep my fingers crossed that they live up to all their potential and promise.

    The Scorpio propaganda machine continues to chug along at a staggering pace. A whole year away from release and it’s as if the push for marketing the newly released Xbox One S has already been abandoned for fear of the eminent threat of the PS4 Pro release. I guess the recent marketing of the included UHD drive on the Xbox One S had zero affect on sales numbers. It’s like Michael Pachter said. “People just don’t care”. An Xbox with a UHD drive is still just another Xbox, and nobody seems to be in a rush to go out and get one.

    • Mark

      Lol

    • Fweds

      You still at it ? this is news about two future machines nothing to do with current models.

      A Playstation that costs more than £100 without a £400 UHD drive built in is a joke, and now the Xbox is going to fully bitstream it would be crazy to buy any other console than the Xbox one S .

    • Gamez Rule

      There is light-bleeding issues with Xbone S when playing 4K UHD discs with HDR enabled and MS are well aware of it, so the drive isn’t even that impressive is it.

      Wonder why it hasn’t been fixed by now.

    • crazy_black_man-

      This is the quality you get from an Xbox One S 4K player.

      “Xbox One S owners – 4K Blu-rays with artifacts and problems? (self.xboxone)
      submitted 2 hours ago by rrobinson1216
      I’ve now had two 4K UHD Blu-Rays with issues – X-Men:Apocalypse, and Gatsby. Both had random artifacts (colored squares, freezes, audio messups) in
      the middle of the movie. I’ve exchanged X-Men and the second copy worked
      well, but after getting Gatsby and having the same issues, I’m wondering what’s up. Are they just harder to produce and therefore produce more failures? I obviously didn’t have a second 4K BR player to test with, so I just finished with the 1080P version and will exchange it tomorrow. Just curious to see if anyone else has seen it, and if it’sthe disc’s fault.”

    • Gamez Rule

      My son and his mate wanted to watch a 4K movie last night, So we streamed one, then went down the pub, no need for Xbone S.

    • netname

      hahahahahaha . ignorant.. xbox one s and ALL UHD player on the market ARE NOT NATIVE 4K CAPABLE 1:1 FULL LOSSLESS STREAMS…<

      if you think to know this tech … probably some things don't work on you, as you expected.

  • Terminator

    Everyday we get Xbox article and almost nothing about PSVR. LOL Gets its clear what has people more interested in.

    • Aenea

      Makes the bias pretty clear actually…

    • Cenk Algu

      Ohhh boy go back to your N4G and see the bias and the trolling for yourself. Ohhh by the way arent you one of those Sony trolls,bashing the Xbox everywhere? Yes yes you are.

    • Aenea

      Nope, I’m not bashing Xbox anywhere. Find a post of mine where I’m bashing it out of bashing’s sake and not stating facts or disproving people’s erratic beliefs? And I don’t care which box of plastic you worship I will do the same thing to you if you don’t make sense!

    • Jimmy DoneGood

      No one cares about psvr. It’s trash. The only people that care are the fanboys with their fake enthusiasm. They don’t even plan to buy it anyways.

    • Dougdec92

      And my good sir, have you tried it anyways?, cos from how you sound, you’re the biggest fanboy at the moment, write up a comprehensive review on the psvr and stop blabbering.

    • Fweds

      There are a stack of VR headsets coming before March it would be stupid to buy the PSVR and all the other bits until you find out about these.

      The PSVR full setup (without the console itself) Still costs a lot more than a PS Pro and probably more than Scorpio

    • Mr Xrat

      Just like those s**t rehashes you get at the end of the year.

    • kma99

      Arent u getting a rehash holiday bundle this Christmas? Didnt you get thr last of us rehash in a bundle last Christmas. Thr Christmas before that didnt you get the last of us remastered for the holidays ?

    • Fweds

      He probably got a couple of Indies as well, looks like Sony are throwing all the money at VR shovelware and leaving the core gamers behind.

    • Mr Xrat

      That’s why the PS4 had more regular exclusives this year and will have more next year too.

      How’s Fable Legends? How’s all that awesome new IP? Oh wait.

    • Mr Xrat

      “Arent u getting a rehash holiday bundle this Christmas?”

      No.

      But then you’re an utter r3tard so I can see why you would think that.

    • kma99

      Yes you are liar. Drive club, rachet and clank, last of us. How much more of a rehash can u get clown lol

    • Mr Xrat

      Looks more like a good mix of games, some of them the best available on the market. Does that trigger you?

    • kma99

      Why should i be triggered you like having a good mixture of old games cause your daddy sony told u it was good for you. Played those games and moved on. You still playing last of us, last of us remastered and the last of us pro mastered. Lol that’s a great mixture

    • Mr Xrat

      I just like having games in general, that’s the benefit of not being a Shitbox sufferer. Bored of Gears already? You should try that other game, what was it called again? Platformer, mediocre flop, made by the guy who did Mighty No 9?

    • kma99

      Only thing you’re playing is , resident evil remaster and tansformers devestation stop trying to lie and tell us you’re playing games lol. You sit on here with 300 alts crying so there is no way you’re playing games. Trll us something we can believe next time

    • Mr Xrat

      What do last month’s PS+ Plus games have to do with anything?

    • LifeOnMars

      You may think it’s trash, Not so the general public.It’ sold out in the UK.

    • Fweds

      They didn’t have much stock in the UK, and Sony not releasing sales numbers even for week 1 reveals all we need to know.

    • Aenea

      You do know that PSVR sold more at Amazon for instance than the Xbox One S, right? So low stock on the X1S as well? Why MS, why!?

    • Fweds

      Look at the first week sales of the Kinect’s 1, if Sony would of sold even half as many PSVR as MS sold Kinect’s the first week they would be shouting it from the rooftops.

      It clearly did no more than average at best.

    • LifeOnMars

      Only because Micro$oft forced Kinect to be included with Xbone.

    • Gamez Rule

      Thank god that Kinect was pushed aside for gaming needs ☺

    • CC-Tron

      Kinect 1. Not 2.

    • LifeOnMars

      Oh yes the prototype for the successful Kinect 2

    • Gamez Rule

      “Oh yes the prototype for the successful Kinect 2″….That still got dropped☺

    • Aenea

      LOL, keep trying to ignore the success as much as you want, the fact is that PSVR outsold the Xbox One S, if that’s not significant to you that means the X1S is even less significant!

    • Luke Skywalker

      what new games are out for the psvr?

    • LifeOnMars

      Over 30 on launch, 70 within a few months,
      How many game can you play on the Scorpio now ?

    • Luke Skywalker

      the games for launch were already covered and reviews and talked about.
      so i’m asking what new games came out that they need to talk about?
      right now can’t play any games on the scorpio because it’s not launched yet but that doesn’t mean that the gaming media should be barred from talking about it. if there’s something relevant that they feel their readers should know then by all means.
      look at no man’s sky? they talked about that game for 3 years up until it’s launch. so what’s the difference, why all the fuss now?

    • Luke Skywalker

      I asked what new games came out. you proceeded to list launch games and games that are not released yet and some that doesn’t even have a release date.
      according to your post only 2 were released recently. 1 got a 50 at metecritic with a 4.4 user score. the other was reviewed by playstation lifestyle 75 with no user score. nothing to write home about. so my question is, why should gaming websites waste their time on games those?
      i’m sure if there’s anything meaningful to write about they will write about them. but I certainly wouldn’t waste my time posting about those games that gives me or my site nothing in return.

    • Gamez Rule

      Games are games ( all news ), be that released games to upcoming games people want the know what is about to come out or has come out, or how a game may be ported, or how games may get updates, what games offer exclusives etc etc etc.

      You asked “what new games are out for the psvr?”, so I gave you games that have been released, newly released, and about to get released so what’s the issue?

    • Luke Skywalker

      the games that have been released were already covered which was my point that no news worthy game came out that they needed to talk about.

    • Mr Xrat

      It’s called clickbait, kiddo. I find it amusing that you’re still clinging to your disintegrating worldview. Poor little Xgimp.

    • Fweds

      so the question is: what does this have to do with no news about PSVR?

      You posted about the PSVR problems on an article about …..

      “Xbox Scorpio Has Everything Necessary To Render Complex Shader Effects, Switch Is ‘Interesting’”….. ( taking about Scorpio and Switch )

      So I thought I’ll also go off topic like you have done so ( as have others ) and posted problems with Xbones UHD Blu-ray drive too☺

    • Luke Skywalker

      the OP comment was that there’s no news for PSVR on this site, so I post a recent news about PSVR from this site.
      next time pay attention to the train of comments.

    • Gamez Rule

      Like this train of comments from being “off topic” I also added some news into it. You gave him PSVR news, I gave back general Xbox news which I hope people liked☺

    • Luke Skywalker

      if that makes you feel better

    • TylerDurden

      So what new VR game are you expecting this website to discuss?

      There’s nothing really more to say about Playstation VR. It doesn’t have any new games out this week to discuss, and I’m sure, like every other gaming site Gamingbolt have already exhausted everything they can say about Sony VR until something actually comes out that gives them something to talk about. It’s the same at other gaming websites. Perhaps your complaint should be held with Sony for bringing out the system with hardly anything exciting to play on it. Fortunately they don’t do this with new consoles, so why they’ve done it with a product that’s a much harder sell than a new console, and one that absolutely needs lots of exciting games, and good reasons to invest in VR are where the problem lies. It’s not the responsibility of gaming websites to create news or articles about something that is hardly being supported by the corporation that’s created it.

    • Aenea

      Anything exciting to play? Seriously?

      This week had 3 new VR releases, next week there will be more and the next week as well.

      *shakes head*

    • TylerDurden

      Well I admit I’ve lost a lot of interest in it recently. I had wrongly assumed that practically every shooter available now would have been converted to run on VR, and certainly anything being released now would allow gamers the option to play, but that’s clearly not the case. I had also wrongly assumed that games wouldn’t need for us to use wavey-hand controllers, and would allow us to sit if that’s how we prefer to game. I just wanted a full scale, true 3D image, rather than viewing games on a restrictive flat screen. I misled myself into what VR was going to be, so it turns out it’s not really a product aimed at me. Hence the reason I pay little attention to it these days.

    • Aenea

      Flat screen? It certainly is not that! Have you even tried it? You really should!

      And all FPS games converted? Are you crazy? Any idea how much vomiting that would ensue? 🙂

      You just had overblown expectations. VR is in it’s infancy, developers are now trying things out to see what can work without making people get motion sickness, FPS games are something that don’t work well for everyone due to the motion sickness.

      We will get awesome games for VR, but you just need to see it currently as a way to play different types of games in a different way. Once the tech evolves over the next 10 to 20 years and people won’t get motion sickness than every game type can be on VR.

    • TylerDurden

      Typical. You’re so blinded by your love for VR you assume anyone who isn’t as enthusiastic hates it and has to insult the system. I don’t consider VR as just a flat screen. I don’t care to justify how impressive or wonderful I see the tech, and certainly not to a stranger who will twist things around to suit their own argument. Anyway, sure, let’s just have a bunch of hand-waving party games and demos… because that’s really working out for VR right now. Perhaps you’re right though and Sony, Valve et al are all working on a 20 year plan to turn it into a success. It’s shown clearly what’s it’s all about and I’m out; I’m sure it’ll have a devoted audience, but I won’t be one of them.

    • Aenea

      It has to start somewhere, I would love FPS games in VR as much as anyone else but they need to solve the motion sickness thing first otherwise it’s never gonna work. And since new things are possible and not all the old game designs work well in VR developers need to test what does and does not work, seems reasonable, does it not?

    • TylerDurden

      I don’t see it that way at all. If motion sickness is simply about framerate then the industry needs to ensure framerates are to a standard that proves comfortable and all but eradicates the issue.

      However, as there are people who aren’t suffering motion sickness it seems to suggest that this isn’t entirely the issue. My opinion is if you suffer from motion sickness; tough luck, VR is not for you! I think attempting to create a whole new genre of party games, and not producing first or third person games because some people feel sick is ridiculous. It’s poor business.. and I think is proving to be the case with the low uptake and lack of excitement now surrounding VR.

      Some people feel sick playing first person games. Who cares!? There’s always someone who has a problem with something. Industry doesn’t revolve around the people who can’t buy into their products. Games are like fairground rides or sports. Some people love them, some don’t. Some people are physically built for them, some aren’t. If fairground rides catered for those who are otherwise too scared or feel sick using them, where would they be? Two feet off the ground and travelling at five miles an hour. Same with sport. If sport had to cater for everyone’s physical issues it wouldn’t even exist! I can’t read in a car without feeling sick. You know what, that’s my problem. I don’t expect the motor industry to try and resolve this issue because as a passenger I might prefer to read rather than stare out the window!

      VR manufacturers and developers really need to forget about those that can’t use the product and appeal to the gamers, with games, that built this industry. Maybe there’s an audience for party games, but from my understanding, and the figures I see first and third person games are extremely popular and they should all be on VR; every single one of them without exception, and the manufacturers needed to work as hard at this as they do to get those exclusives and first generation of games on new consoles, for example.

      However, the industry appears to have a different idea. It seems to want to create a whole new gaming format. It wants to change the way people play. It appears to think VR need not appeal to the millions of gamers who enjoy and clearly want to remain seated, and play the games they’ve always played. Fine. I’m a traditional, old fashioned type of gamer and have no desire for VR in its current format. If the industry changes its mind and starts putting everything out on VR, allowing me to use the controls I’m accustomed to, and remain seated, then I’ll be back onboard. But I’m resigned to being one of the millions that won’t be spending any money on this ‘format’.

    • Aenea

      The motion sickness has everything to do with how our brain processes what it sees and compares it to what else it senses and they don’t correspond!

      You see yourself moving but you’re sitting still, that sorta thing.

      Yes, bad framerates makes this way, way worse for even more people.

      Thing is though, a straight up FPS game will make more people get (some) motion sickness than not. You can get used to it tho but it’s not something you want as a manufacturer.

      When people see a game on a TV/monitor and get motion sickness they chalk it up to themselves, when they normally do not get motion sickness with games and with a VR headset they do, they will blame the VR headset or VR in general, that’s not what you want.

      So VR in it’s current form doesn’t allow for all current genres to translate well to it, but it also allows new things, new ways to play games, new mechanics, new control methods, etc., etc. It’s good they are trying this out now with smaller games then in a few years they can incorporate those things in the bigger VR games.

      Then more years after that when the motion sickness can be solved completely we have all the old styles and ways of playing games but also the new.

      It *is* a good thing.

    • TylerDurden

      I’ve never suggested it wasn’t a good thing. Prior to the release of VR I was extremely excited, completely sold in fact. The idea of playing first person games with the graphics being full scale, and in proper 3D still remains an exciting prospect. Visually that would gaming perfection to me.

      But it’s turned out that I was never the target audience for VR. I had wrongly assumed that all the types of shooters I’ve played in the past would appear on VR, with the headset effectively replacing the screen, but still allowing me to play seated, with a mouse or controller. That it’s brought its own variation of games, and requires standing, and using new specific controls has rendered the amazing visual enhancement pointless to me. It’s a shame because I believe that VR could effectively be sold to everyone if we could simply slip on a headset and play everything we’re currently playing. Stupidly I imagined that a day would come where I wouldn’t play any games on a screen! So I had originally imagined it to be more than just a good thing.

    • Aenea

      Yeah but that’s the problem, you can’t slip on a VR headset on everyone, stay seated and expect them to play an FPS game without getting nauseous! That was my whole point!

      I can’t wait for the time they actually solve this tho…

      Fun fact: ginger apparently helps with motion sickness, you can even get it in pills (“jacking in”!) and whaddayaknow, Coca Cola in Australia recently introduced a Coke with ginger, haha, just drink logs of those and you should be fine!

    Xbox Scorpio “The worlds most powerful console Never made”

    • TylerDurden

      That’ll be because it’s currently being developed! So you doubt a new console that’s being released one later than its direct competition won’t be more powerful!? Seriously!???? Maybe you’re right, maybe Microsoft plan to release a less powerful Xbox and call it the XboxHalf. You appear to know the gaming industry so well I don’t know why I doubt you!!!

    • LifeOnMars

      PS4 pro exists and is the most powerful console , and will be for over a year.

    • CC-Tron

      They have ’till about a month before E3. After that all the talk will be about Scorpio. 7 months maybe. After the reveal most will be waiting on the better hardware. Sony needs some killer aps within first 7 months for this not to happen.

    • LifeOnMars

      Time will tell, But I think sony have this generation sewn up and will outsell xbox by 80%.
      Is the Scorpio classed as a new generation or will it still be in the class of Xbox one ?

    • CC-Tron

      Console sales are great but game sales are where the money ‘s made if you care about that. Sony has spent a huge amount on 3 SKU’s. One of them (the slim) almost DOA. The PSVR will likely go the way of the Vita. The bottom line is far from sewn up as you put it.

    • LifeOnMars

      Multiformat games are selling 50% more on PS4 compared to Xbone

    • CC-Tron

      No they’re not.

    • Gamez Rule

      PS4 just offers more games, more game choices, with VR added into the mix than what Xbone offers it’s users.

    • CC-Tron

      Wooo! More games. You’re going buy all those 16 bit indie games? Have fun. More game choices? Niche Japanese titles. OK I guess. Again have fun. VR? Not much demand there and expensive. How well did the much cheaper Vita do and where is it now? Not sure why you’re telling all this.

      What I posted is correct no matter how you sum it up.

      You may not like the fact that PS4 offers more games & gaming choices too it’s users when compared to what is available on Xbone but it’s still a selling point ( hence why PS4 has lead this whole gen in worldwide sales ).

    • CC-Tron

      Hooray!! You love your PS4. I get it. But why tell me that?

    • Gamez Rule

      How can I love my PS4 when I no longer have a PS4? I use Xbone and PC ( PC mainly ). And once PS4-Pro comes along I’ll use that as well☺ But regardless of what console I use the truth is just that…The truth. PS4 offers more games and choices to play those games, when compared to the Xbone☺

    • CC-Tron

      That’s great man. If don’t own a PS4 then Sony should be cutting you a check. You sure do work over time on there putting them over here. They are paying you right? Unbias PC gamer?

    • Gamez Rule

      Truth is as a gamer I enjoy gaming on multiple systems, BUT I know that PS4 is a much better supported gaming console than what Xbone is. I also know that PS4 has won this console gen hands down as it’s sold more than both Wii U and Xbone put together☺

    • CC-Tron

      So…………………..they’re not paying you. Oh and you love the PS4. Got it.

    • LifeOnMars

      I think that if Micro$oft release a VR you will be spinnning another story.

    • CC-Tron

      Spinning another story. I haven’t spinned anything so far. You on the hand have outright lied. PS multiplats selling 50% more. PS biggest exclusives don’t even sell 50% more.

    • CC-Tron

      Your spinning. I haven’t talked about MS VR so you’ll have to wait to see what happens there. You on the hand have outright lied. PS multiplats selling 50% more. PS4’s biggest must have exclusives don’t even sell 50% more. Done.

    • LifeOnMars
    • LifeOnMars

      If said IF Micro$oft release VR , and that will probably only work on Scorpio and leave Xboners in the cold.
      Take a look at Vgcharts for the sales figures.
      An Exclusive is an exclusive so of course it will sell more.Done…..

    • CC-Tron

      Upvoting yourself again? Blocked.

      I think you will find that that is the case.

    • Gamez Rule

      I ordered two PS4-Pros ( Christmas coming up ) and I will be using one of them as soon as it’s released. I’m going to start Destiny again ( maxed out on Xbone ) and going to try out the VR too. Maybe I’ll get to see the content from destiny I’ve missed out on while playing on Xbone version☺

  • Eliezer Barreto

    Microsoft said the first and only 4k console jajajjajajajajajajajaja loll so more than a dozen ps4 pro games are confirm native , jaja

    • Starman

      Yeah …. Indie Native jajajajajajaja STFU…

    • Cenk Algu

      A dozen? Lol only some indies and Remastereds thats it.

    • TylerDurden

      I’ve never read or heard anyone from Microsoft make such a claim. They have however suggested that their new machine will be able to run every game in 4K, which the Playstation won’t. There will be some 4k native games, but the majority are likely to make use of Sony’s (clever, from what I understand) upscaling. Anyway, who cares what these companies say as followers of the industry via websites like this we’ll know exactly what these machines are capable should be decide to buy one. WIth both Microsoft and Sony suggesting that for 4K or even upscaled 4K to be noticeable we will need 4K TVs… which I think makes the 4k capabilities of these machines a mute point unless you (or your parents) are looking to buy a new TV before or at the time of the purchase. Personally I think 1080 is perfectly fine. I think HDR is far more exciting, yet nothing’s mentioned.

    • Aenea

      MS has not claimed that every game will be able to run in 4k, in fact they only claimed that their 1st party titles will be native 4k.

      And they do keep shouting that their next console has true 4k capabilities, it’s close.

      Also, checkerboard rendering is NOT upscaling. Am sure you won’t agree, try to look how both work then decide for yourself if it’s even close to being the same thing…

    • Luke Skywalker

      “first true 4k”

    • d0x360

      Yea games like that micro machines racers and games with simple visuals…

      Even the ps3 could in theory render games at 4k, it doesn’t mean the quality of those visuals will be good.

      That’s the difference between the pro and Scorpio. There is a significant difference in power between the two plus the Scorpio has 3 gigs more ram which is quite a bit.

      The pro doesn’t have enough ram for proper 4k textures but it can render 1k textures at 4k…but they are still 1k

    • LifeOnMars

      The main difference between the PS4 Pro and Scorpio is that the PS4 Pro actualy exsists.

    • Gamez Rule

      PlayStation Pro – $399/£349 / Xbox Scorpio -$—/£—

      Price will be a lot more for a console holding specs such as Scorpio, and that will put people off knowing it’s ONLY a mid gen console, while next gen isn’t to far off in the distance with Sony’s PS5?

      Once Scorpio releases PS4-Pro will have a price drop too ( example = $349 / £299 with games ) which right around Christmas time will be the more appealing console to most people.

      Sony knows what’s what☺

    • OC Guy

      If you are typing English it is hahaha…not jajaja….educate yourself little fanboy.

    • Mark

      Lmao

    • Tyrelle Watts

      It’s not native. Checkerboard rendering to produce 4k. So again not native.

  • Mr Xrat

    Complex shader effects at the expense of other graphical effects, and it still won’t get 4K on most AAA games. LOL! Shitpio all lining up to be the blunder of the year.

      Ahahaa oh crap

    • shadowhedgehogz

      4K (native at least) is not ready yet, as shown by powerful single GPU’s which struggle to hold good FPS in demanding titles.. even Scorpio will be limited to 30fps, if people think they are going to get a solid 60fps at 4K in new demanding games they are sorely mistaken.

      High refresh rate is where it’s at, 4K is still too demanding and gives low minimum fps.

    • Fweds

      Oh look it’s “Revolver ocelot” back to using his MrXrat multi, weird…

    Good article.

  • jacksjus

    I think claiming the strongest console ever made is redundant and foolish. The PS4 has been the strongest console ever made for the last 3 years, and not once have I heard them mention it as a marketing ploy. The PS4 Pro in less than two weeks will be the strongest console ever made. I’m sure the Scorpio will then have it’s time that is until the next big console launches afterwards which is likely the PS5 or some other MS console. I’m not hating I just find it redundant as technology keeps moving forward rapidly.

    • TylerDurden

      What!?!? When the Scorpio is released it will be the strongest, most powerful console on the market. There’s nothing foolish or redundant in making this claim. Sure, when the PS4 Pro is released it will be the current most powerful console on the market. And presumably if this website or any article dare suggest such a thing you’ll complain that the comment is foolish and redundant too, yes?! The fact that technology does move forward rapidly is evidence enough that reports on it reflect this information. Even more so in an industry with so little competition, and a market obsessed with larger numbers associated with their chosen product over the competition.

    • jacksjus

      Smdh! Who said anything about what a website says? What does that have to do with my statement. Also my statement is my opinion. Not here for the fanboy ish.

    • TylerDurden

      Oh I don’t know… maybe because you made a comment about a sentence within this article, on a forum connected to this article! So, you were just making a random comment that just happens to tie in with a statement in the article yes?! Sure, your statement is your opinion, and I was pointing out that your attitude is rather pointless when literally every website discussing consoles have and will forever more compare the capabilities of each machine with the faster machine being noted as such. And you can stop with the immature ‘fanboy’ name calling. I’m not interested in that kind of pathetic comment, although I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that it comes from someone complaining about gaming technology’s speed and capability! One day you’ll learn that this isn’t exactly unheard of and is actually an obsession with the industry, those that report on it, and those that use it.

    • jacksjus

      This website didn’t bill the Scorpio as the most powerful console ever, it was MS’ marketing team. Get over yourself really.

      What’s your problem?

    • TylerDurden

      Well right now, you are for trying to insult me! I don’t even have an Xbox and I have no idea whether that will change in future.

      This article starts with “…the Xbox One Scorpio, which is being billed as the strongest console ever made”. You made a comment about this statement being redundant and foolish! I responded.

      Do you not understand that Microsoft are simply suggesting what Sony have said about their consoles in the past, as all the corporations making the technology that drives games do in expressing that their top line product is faster than the competition. So, in short suggesting a future console being the fastest on the market on its release being ‘redundant and foolish’ is unbelieveably naive! There’s nothing ‘to get over’.

    • jacksjus

      I don’t even know you and wasn’t talking to you to begin with.

      You have no idea how stupid you sound to me at the moment.

      I’m trying to insult you? As I said get over yourself. Don’t like my opinion move on to others. I have no time to argue about nothing.

      And yes you are acting like a fanboy because he shoe fits. I can careless if you’re insulted really.

      Good day sir!

    • TylerDurden

      Again trying to insult me. Seriously F*CK you! You don’t even know what a fanboy is. I said, I don’t have an Xbox. I even explained that I don’t even know whether I will in future. But that doesn’t make me scared or whatever your problem is with admitting that Microsoft will have the most powerful console when the Scorpio releases. Equally one day Sony will overtake them, and so the race goes on. I don’t care. I have gamed on the most powerful system and the slowest. Speed is absolutely of no interest to me at all. If it were I would have the most expensive PC money can buy!

      You’re not just trying to insult me, you actually are, by calling me Fanboy. Or is that a compliment I’m not aware of. You’re suggesting I’m a biased blind fan of Microsoft. I don’t need to get over anything.

      Seriously, are you also so stupid that you don’t even know that the expression is “I couldn’t care less”. If you ‘can care less’ it means you care, which is not what you’re trying to say I presume! I feel like I’m picking on the dumb kid now. Have the last word because I think I feel sorry for you.

    • theduckofdeath

      The line could have been worded differently, but “redundant and foolish” doesn’t really fit, either.

      The spec targets quoted point to Scorpio being the “most powerful console” upon its release. This is usually the case, unless the hardware manufacturer is Nintendo. Or last gen, where 360 and PS3 had disparate architectures and a year of separation. Still, 360 out-performed PS3 is many 3rd party titles, and 1st parties exclusive titles are just that — no way to compare.

      “The most powerful console ever made” sounds a little silly, I will agree. MS is dumbing down for the audience. Generally, console-only gamers can’t get specs for the most part, and can’t be relied upon to discern the capabilities from incomplete info. MS is trying to make it clear that Scorpio will be be the most powerful console available, without question. Not only that, the capabilities will be quite “unconsole-like”. The machine will be closer to a modern, capable PC.

    • jacksjus

      I respect your response.
      That other guy is a clown.

    • jacksjus

      My main point is in technology in particular you can only lay claim to being the first to do something. That is history that cannot be erased. So if they want to say the first console 6 teraflops and true 4K understood, but the most powerful ever is a short lived title.

      I doubt 10 years from now we will be looking back saying man that Scorpio was the most powerful console ever. Lol!
