Xbox Scorpio Is “The Only Console” Capable Of “True 4K” and “Hi-Fidelity VR” According To Microsoft

This is being a bit unfair to the PlayStation VR, I feel.

The PlayStation 4 Pro will technically be the first 4K console when it launches on November 10, while the PlayStation VR is the first console based VR solution. But both of them, and especially the PS4 Pro, are half step solutions, that use a variety of tricks and shortcuts to make up for some very obvious technical deficiencies and shortcomings.

This, according to Microsoft, will not be a problem with the Xbox One Scorpio, their new console that launches in Holiday 2017, and which promises to be the strongest, most powerful console ever. According to Microsoft, the Scorpio will be ‘the only console capable of true 4K and hi-fidelity VR’, which technically isn’t untrue, but is still being a tad unfair to especially how great the PlayStation VR is, I feel.

The Xbox One Scorpio is due out next year, in the Holiday season. The console will come with a 6TFLOPs GPU, and will maintain full intercompatibility with the existing Xbox One and Xbox One S.

    Wouldn’t surprise me a bit especially since 6 TeraFlops = 12 TeraFlops according to Mark.

    • Luke Skywalker

      Wait what? He said that?

    • Mr Xrat

      Fair justice for you losers crying about DX12 for two years. Xgimps salty over the Pro. Love it. Keep crying. 🙂

    It’s going to exciting to see what TRUE advances in GPU technology actually look like in a console. Oh and it won’t be the same tired and antiquated CPU with a boost, it’ll actually be a real improvement.

    Microsoft will also likely partner with Oculus for a VR headset too, so it’ll be interesting to see whether or not, they in some way subsidise the hardware for a lower entry price or not.

    • The truth-ier

      sorry, but this is the sony defense force article and website, you are not able to post things that makes since….lol

    • J.j. Barrington

      Maybe he should post things that make sense, then.

    • Luke Skywalker

      The might just use the same cpu with a boost. Remember they have a price point to hit.

    • Starman

      If they’re using the same cpu, then it couldn’t hit 6-t-flops…. one more thing , PPl missed what MS said about T-flops ..They never said there’s only 6t-flops , they said”we have the six needed for vr ..what the dev’s said we need”..meaning , if you think outside the box and understand MS “MO” then you know there more to it ….

    • theduckofdeath

      I doubt that would work. MS claims the GPU hits 6 TFLOPS. The current CPU couldn’t feed that chip data fast enough. A significant up tick would bring more heat. No point in having an expensive GPU starved out by a CPU bottleneck. DF interviewed two MS engineers at launch, and they claimed the XB1 was “balanced.”

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. They’re probably putting the red ring back on the face of the Scorpio console. Hilariousness!

    • Luke Skywalker

      if the cpu was made on the same process as the xbox one then yes it would create more heat on 20nm process…however, we’re talking finfet which comes in at 10 to 14nm, this would lower the power needed and heat generated and give the ability to upclock significantly, maybe even up to 3.2Ghz
      – gpu is 1.5x ps4 pro
      – memory bandwidth is 1.5x ps4 pro
      – if it comes with 12gb of memory as that’s the amount of chips shown on the mockup mainboard then it will be 1.5x the amount in the ps4 pro
      – cpu if 3.2Ghz will be 1.5x ps4 pro

      sounds balanced to me

    • Mr Xrat

      It’s going to be funny when the reality that the Shitpio is yet another iterative console that’ll be held back by the base hardware hits. On the plus side, you can go back to using the Kinect as an excuse for it like you did all those years ago.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Wait, you make posts like this, but have the gall to call others fanboys?

      Points for being gutsy, I guess.

    • bardock5151

      I’m actually a fan of AMD. A bit of a love/hate relationship though. When the Xbox One and PS4 were announced I was hoping AMD was going to reveal an off the charts GPU.

      Alas, no show. But AMD seems to be on a roll of late, and with Microsoft taking power seriously again there should be some great advances.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Doesn’t stop you from being a fanboy for Microsoft.

  • The truth-ier

    The only people who like the Playstation VR are the ones who cant afford the Rift/Vive (with a good computer attached, the ones who have never used the rift/vive, or have hope for the future.
    Calling the Pro true 4k console is crazy, calling the PSVR high fidelity is crazy…. As of right now the Scorpio is just a paper console, full specs have not been released.
    The PSVR graphics are terrible, tracking is terrible… but im use to using the rift and the amazing vive with its full room tracking.

    • Starman

      FACTS !!!!!

    • J.j. Barrington

      WHERE????

    • jp

      not only them but the media overall, its crazy.

    • crazy_black_man-

      You sore losers sound just like Trump and his redneck supporters

    • -youjustgotburned-

      I don’t know what you are talking about since you sound like Trump yourself.

    • Luke Skywalker

      doesn’t bring politics into this or gtfo

    • crazy_black_man-

      Oh, you’re losing there too. Hilariousness!

    • J.j. Barrington

      You must be sniffing bleach or something.

  • efnet

    LOL unfair to sony??? What???

  • Gamez Rule

    What would be classified as “true 4K and hi-fidelity VR”?

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      Something that does not use upscaling trickery like Checkerboarding..:)

    • Gamez Rule

      “hi-fidelity VR”?

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      Maybe VR games that do not look like PS2 titles?

    • J.j. Barrington

      Quite a few of those already.

      Of course, with you having zero experience, it’s not surprising that you’re ignorant of that fact.

      … strange. You seem to be ignorant of most things you talk about.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      I feel sorry for you then, I am sure that you have downgraded your super PS vision from 1080p to 480…:)

    • J.j. Barrington

      Uh, okay.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Unfortunately, fanboy Annie, the Scorpio will be using upscaling trickery as well, if not exactly checkerboarding.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      I thought that UPSCALING was a derogatory gaming term in the PS world, but I can see that now Sony fanboys love it…hehe

      Thanks for opening my eyes and let me know that P Spencer was lying about native 4K in the Scorpio not being true after you analyzed the XBox games running on it..:)

    • J.j. Barrington

      Gonna take a lot more power than the Scorpio will have. That’s evident in the gaming PCs that require more and STILL don’t play all games in 4k.

      Nice try, fanboy.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      I prefer to believe P Spencer than a Sony fanboy since consoles are closed systems that can be tuned in for performance. Regardless, the Scorpio will surely have the better version of the multiplats with its 2 tflop advantage over the poor PS Pro that does not even have a 4K player…….:)

    • J.j. Barrington

      He said that? Probably shouldn’t believe him either, if he’s saying every first party will be in 4K.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      Well, Only Spencer knows if his 4K claims are truthful or not. However, the 1.8 tflop advanatge the Scorpio will have over the poor PS Pro is simply a fact. Unless you want to believe Cerny about the Pro’s secret Sauce (which you surely do)…hehe

    • J.j. Barrington

      You don’t even understand what Cerny meant, poor fool.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      Sure, go ahead and explain to me Cerny’s recipe for the secret sauce, I am very curious to know the ingredients in it …:)

  • One With Shadows

    Like MS knows anything about “true” anything!

    • kma99

      #3 most richest company in the world. I’m pretty sure they know what true money in the bank is.

    • Starman

      They’re actually the second …lol

    • One With Shadows

      I was just talking about actual skill. Bullshitting people out of their money I guess could count as a skill, that’s just not what I’m referring to.

    • kma99

      So sony refusing to refund people money even when they know their account has been hacked countd as skill also. Or is that only when they threaten to lock them out of their account if they go through their back to get the refund sony refuses to give themselves.

    • kma99

      Stop upvoting yourself. There are about 7 people total reading this site. You have the same amount of votes as xrat down below.

    • One With Shadows

      Ahhh,2 replies to one comment. Lol. I love when they get all tore up. Hahahas.

    • kma99

      Never tore up over video games. Im simply here to aggravate the village idiots. You sony drones never stray to far from home. Lol upvote that.

    • One With Shadows

      Oh you like to aggravate yourself. Gotcha.

    • kma99

      Cute. U can upvote yourseld but cant read. Lol typical drone.

    • One With Shadows

      Anyone can upvote tbemself,you moron.

    • kma99

      Oh those life skills of yours is fantastic lol. Poor drones

    • One With Shadows

      Unlike those grammar skills of yours. Lol. If you use proper English in the future you won’t look so stupid.

    • Eddie Battikha

      Man U are a long winded one.

    • One With Shadows

      Oops, you accidentally sent that to me. Pretty sure you meant to send it to the one whose grammar “skills is fantastic”. Bahahahahaha

    • Carleton Legrant

      Yeah but none of that money is from the Xbox divison They have not been profitable with the Xbox for a long time.

    • kma99

      Dude they make crap loads of money from xbox live and software salrs. Don’t believe everything sony fanboys tell you

    • Carleton Legrant

      I believe Financial Reports They have not been very profitable with Xbox division since last gen.

    • kma99

      You haven’t even read any financial reports. They dont make money off hardware. Always on software and xbox livr subscriptions.

    • Carleton Legrant

      It is a bold face lie and they know it

  • Starman

    “This is being a bit unfair to the PlayStation VR, I feel.”
    Because you’re a “Pathetic Sony Fanboy………….FACTS ! now STFU ‘Pramath’

  • Mr Xrat

    True 4K with indies and those hilarious last-gen exclusives? Yep. “Hi-fidelity VR?” They made a decision on that yet? Slugberg made it sound like they were willing to back out of that one.

    Funny how they’re still pleading people to wait for Shitpio and its astonishing zero exclusives. Xbone S sales not as hot as they’re selling them as? Uh oh!

    • kma99

      Tell us about those ps4 slim sales again.

    • JC

      Got some new upvote bots I see, good for you!

  • lagann

    Who cares. It’s all just marketing. Just like the retarded slogan “for the players” by Sony.

  • Looking forward to what this new console actually plays like.

  • youngshyne

    Don’t be bad that you decide to buy ps4.

  • Kingfortoday

    Can’t wait for all those shooters and forzas again. Yawn

  • Michael

    Don’t you just love gaming journalism…lol

  • Riggybro

    Xbox Scorpio must have the longest buildup from an announcement to a release ever.

    All these quotes promising the earth and (passively) knocking the competition then at the bottom… a very small… “minor” disclaimer –
    Oh by the way the console itself does not exist yet and is well over a year away from release…

    I will say though in terms of price point Scorpio is really nailing it:

    PS4 pro will currently set you back $399
    The imaginary Scorpio on the other hand is only $0.00 of imaginary money.
