Not a day goes by that we don’t hear more about Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox Scorpio, their planned upgrade to the Xbox One, that will be the most powerful console ever made. Microsoft are planning on pushing the best, most high end specs into the console market ever- in fact, that seems to be the very point of the Scorpio.

‘Here we are, three years into the generation, and we also have gamers saying, “Hey, I want the most power, I want the best experience possible,” and that’s what Project Scorpio is all about,’ Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg said in an interview with IGN. ‘It will be the most powerful console ever made. It will deliver 4K gaming to people in the living room on their TVs that they have not experienced before. So today, a lot of people who are spending thousands of dollars on high end PCs are able to experience 4K gaming, sure, but to be able to bring that at scale to the living room, to the console market, is what Scorpio is all about.’

Of course, while 6 TFLOPs is a whole lot, it will be interesting to see wether or not it is enough to truly deliver the kind of native 4K gaming that Microsoft are promising, or if it will end up being more like the kind of upscaled 4K the PS4 Pro pushes.

    I’m getting a bit tired of seeing all this Xbox Scorpio articles but at the same time am happy that so much attention is being put to it more than PSVR or PS4Pro just because some where saying, hoping, wishing the latter would over shadow the Scorpio. 🙂

    id rather buy a high end pc for $1000 vs a 4k tv and a Xbox Scorpio.30fps is still crappy no matter what resolution it is.also from what i hear ms is doing the same thing the ps4 pro is on matching fps so im going to pass on the Xbox Scorpio.

      This is big for me, I really want a 60fps option in single player games on console. And the good news is, developers are already starting to offer that option on the Pro at 1080p, so if Scorpio follows suit, I’ma get my wish

    • Hvd

      now they did say for exclusives but i dont know about 3rd party.
      here is the article.

      Yeah when I read that it’s kind of a mixed bag. It sounds like Loftis is saying “No, Scorpio will run at the same frame rate as all X1 games, no added options”. But then Shannon says “TYPICALLY, yes, games will lock according to their mechanics”, and uses KI as an example, but of course we’re gonna all run KI at 60fps on mp, so the jury is still out for me on what transpires with exclusives. Atleast 3rd parties are dev-ing for higher frames, so we have to see man

      yea that means if forza horizon is 30fps on xbox one it will be 30fps on xbox Scorpio.they are saying in the article that you think that devs will make two codes for games?probally not.

      my guess is same fps for both systems.

    • Mark

      Yeah I understand that part, but when Shannon says “TYPICALLY”, that leaves some games open for having an added option, atleast for me. And still we have 3rd parties giving us more options, so I’m excited. But I hear u, my fingers are crossed on exclusives

    • Hvd

      not me im waiting for the xbox two and i will up grade my pc long before that come out before i spend $1000 on a 4k tv and $500 on a xbox Scorpio.

      id rather invest in 1440p/60fps pc gaming.

    • Mark

      I hear u bro, but I’m all in!!!

  • efnet

    I just need to know a definite release date…
